Checkout the Javaranch XML links page.
First start with learning XML basics. Try one of the tutorials in the link repository.
Next download any of the XML parsers( JAXP from Sun or Xerces from Apache). The parser download will come bundled with example programs which can be readily compiled and run. Try them out with sample XML files and experiment by tweaking them.
Good luck,
