Hi,

I am trying to learn Spring 4 now, but I am facing several problems because I don't know XML, configuration etc. Is there a good beginner level book which teaches all the
XML stuff - XML, XLST, XMLNS, SAX, DOM, node, tree (all that jargon) etc. ?

Here is a sample of the problems I face due to lack of knowledge of XML -

Thanks.

I don't know about books on XMLs, but I have always found these 3 articles to be very good at explaining most of what you need to know about XML for daily use:


Understanding XML schema namespaces
Understanding XML schema datatypes
Understanding XML schema structures

w3schools.com

That site has a lot of outdated and incorrect stuff in it, so I generally advise against it; see http://www.w3fools.com/ for details.

Harold's book Processing XML with Java online is free. Although more than 10 years old it has many useful examples.
