Hi Ranchers,

I have a fair understanding of the Java language and I want to enhance my knowledge in using XML and Java. I want to learn the basics of using XML with Java. Anyone please suggest me some good starting point in the form of books or links on the net.

Thanks in advance.

While it's not great as an initial resource when learning Java-XML stuff (no tutorials) Java Almanac is great for looking up code snippets and the like when you can't quite remember how to do something.

"Club" means "combine", right? Then put "java xml tutorial" into your favourite Internet search engine and you should find several of them.

Hi Above,

You are right that I can get some material from the internet, but the point here is I cannot afford internet, but I can certainly afford a book that I can buy and study myself at home. So please anyone suggest me a very good book that will teach me on the point of using XML with Java.

Thanks in advance.

Oh, sorry. In your original post you asked for "links on the net".

Hi Paul,

I appreciate that you are trying to help me out. In my first post I did ask for some links in the internet. I thought of downloadable links when I mean that. I'm not so often on the internet. If you know any good books that I can buy and do a self study, that would be of a great favour to me.

Hope someone is going to help me out with this.

Thanks in advance.

As far as books go, you might want to check this one out. It was release in September 2006, so it's fairly up to date and current:


Pro XML Development with Java Technology

I enjoyed this book when I read it about four years ago, but I'm not sure if it's been updated. Getting a used copy might be worthwhile:


Processing XML with Java: A Guide to SAX, DOM, JDOM, JAXP, and TrAX

Sorry I can't be more helpful on the tutorials. I have a bunch of Java and J2EE ones on my website, but nothing that's XML specific.

Cheers!

Hi Mc,

Thanks for the feedback. The Processing XML with Java: A Guide to SAX, DOM, JDOM, JAXP, and TrAX (Paperback) book is available as an Indian edition?? Any idea on that?? Please let me know...

Thanks.

If you are into J2EE - the J2EE tutorials that can be downloaded from the official sun website would mostly cover all the concepts that you would need to know in using xml with Java and it would cover concepts of XML, XSLT and various others....

Its free and its downloadable. Give it a try.

Good luck
