How to create a summary for XML data

Hi,
I have a java program that generates an XML document containing information on various electrical components in a circuit. I want to make a summary of the components in the circuit and display a report. Is this possible using any of the XML technologies or do I have to write a pure java code for this?

If you know the structure of your XML file, then you can write a stylesheet that includes all the summarizing logic.

Thanks Ajith,
I know the structure of my XML file. I just wanted to know whether it is possible to put a summarizing logic using XSL.
I need to get a sub-total quantity against each category in the summary. is it possible to compute the sub-totals etc. using XSL.
Please tell me any online resources available, which could help me in this. I have seen a tutorial at http://www.w3schools.com/xsl but it does not talk of any type of computations (totals / count).

You can use sum() and count() functions.
These are the best recourses for advanced XSLT:
