I am new to XML, 100% new. I want a book where I can learn how java and xml may be used together. One example is parsing.
Please suggest some beginner books for this.

Processing XML with Java

However as he says:

This is not an introductory book. It assumes that you're completely familiar with Java including objects, classes, polymorphism, I/O, network programming, and more. It also assumes that you're familiar with XML at about the level of the XML Bible, 2nd Edition. In many ways this book picks up where that one left off.


But since you asked specifically about parsing, that's the way it has to be. You can't understand XML parsing unless you have a reasonable understanding of Java including those topics.

You should fix this before you start learning about parsing XML, not after that.

XML hasn't changed noticeably since it was first released. What's the point of writing another book about XML when books about XML already exist? Writing a book is a lot of work, it's hard to make a living as an author. So why compete with perfectly good books which have already been written?
