Hi,
How can i parse a XML which is in String i.e.
String str="<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<book>
<title>This is my first Xml program</title>
<prod id="15-12" media="internet"></prod>

<chapter>Introduction to XML
<para>what is XML</para>
<para>How to code XML</para>
</chapter>

<chapter>Intro to syntax
<para>Elements of XML</para>
<para>Attribute of XML</para>
</chapter>
</book>";

So which parser will be a good option, SAX or DOM?
