The DOM parser loads the xml file into a tree.I want to know what kind of tree is constructed in this case.Is it a balanced tree or any other kind of tree?
Can anyone please provide some input?

The tree constructed is an exact duplicate of the XML document tree structure (including many nodes you may not be expecting). Nothing magic is going on to rearrange any data.
I suggest you become VERY familiar with the javadocs for org.w3c.dom - especially the Node interface and the very useful table in the Node javadocs.
