We can not create an app without XML. While your book only discusses java in android or so it seems. How do the book allows user to link java and XML of android. Does it discusses XML files of android app to some extent? So that reader should be able to relate different files that make an app work.

My book includes a chapter on XML that discusses XML basics and XML processing via various Java APIs, including Android's XMLPULL V1 API (which is Android's version of StAX). Appendix C, which is part of the book but distributed separately as a 96-page PDF file, and which you can download from http://www.apress.com/9781430264545, introduces AndroidManifest.xml and discusses what gets placed inside this XML file.
All the best.
