Hi, all! I'm looking to dig into XML and (most likely) its usage in association with Java. After reading reviews it looks like I'm leaning towards O'Reilly's Java and XML but wanted to get the opinion of the folks in this forum. I am looking for a book that: 1) has a good intro to XML and uses, DTDs, schemas (probably more important to me than DTDs), and usage with XSL/XSLT. If it also talks about dealing with XML, XML parsers, etc in Java programs that would be even better! Nominations, anyone? Thanks, John

Thanks for the recco. Have you read Holzner's Inside XML? If so, how would you rate it relative to Inside XSLT? John

I haven't read the book but looking at the topics covered, it includes processing xml with java ( 1- Parsing XML with IBM's XML for Java (XML4J) 2- Java and the Simple API for XML (SAX) ) I downloaded Apache's Xerces Java 2(SAX) and installed it. It very easy to use. Reviews of the book are very good. Rating 4.5 out of 5 Not too bad. Francois.
