If you already know the basics of what XML is and want to know the difference between SAX and DOM (and what to do woth them), check out this tutorial from the IBM site (you have to register, but it's free): http://www-4.ibm.com/software/developer/education/xmljava/ The tutorial takes you through simple examples on parsing with SAX and DOM, when to use each, and goes into specifics on the implementations and methods of both. Hope some find it helpful like I did. Bill
This reminds me...the author of this tutorial, Doug Tidwell, gave an excellent presentation at JavaOne this year. It is available as a Webcast at this site: http://java.sun.com/javaone/javaone00/replay.html It's titled XML Programming in the Java Programming Language. Watch it, it's a terrific presentation!
