I am new to XML. I need some good book to start with. I need to parse an XML and validate it using JAVA API. So please help me in finding the right book to start with. I dont know which API to use(SAX, DOM, JDOM....).

Thanks in advance

Before starting, you should have the latest SDK installed, then jump right in and start experimenting. When you have a question, browse the old conversations in this forum, the same things come up often.

I agree. Here's the link:
