Hello All,
I am collecting the data in a servlet from the front end ie: the form in html. Now I have to generate the xml part .So what I have done is generated the entire XML in a string variable. Kindly note data is stored in a variable and not in a file. Now I have to validate this data How do I do it.
Correct me if my approach is wrong.

You are building the XML as a String and you need to validate the XML right?
Many parsers accept either a File or an InputStream as input. So you could build an instance of java.io.StringBufferInputStream with your string and pass it on to the parser.
Good luck,
