I have trouble finding books or materials for preparation on XML architecture & design, and testing & tuning. Can somebody tell me where I can find those information? Thanks in advance!

Tutorials
Excelent site with interative tutorial and many other resources
http://www.zvon.org/
w3schools
One of the best place to start learning XML. This page has many
tutorial, not only about XML, that are small and should be read at firs
attempt to start XML. It is more directed for Microsoft XML but is very easy
to start playing the XML game. Covers all XML related topics. To go
deeper, you will need look for other places.
http://www.w3schools.com/xml/
XML101
For XML, this is just another host for the same content avaiable at the
w3schools site. Only few but not very important differences.

Sun's Tutorial: "Working with XML"
A long text tutorial that covers XML introduction, SAX, DOM and XSLT. I
think it a good place to clear some topics, this not a document to
start reading, you would need a consider long time to finish this tutorial.
Short tutorials and article allow start learning fastly. But keep this
address to use when others documents seem not to be clear for you.

"XML for the absolute beginner." By Mark Johnson
For programmers, this is the best article to take first contact with
XML techmologies. This is not a short article but really worth reading.
In fact

"Programming XML in Java"
The former article is only the first from a serie of four very well
explained articles from Mark Jonhson. The next three parts relates to
effectively using SAX(two parts) and DOM,the last part.

"Mapping XML to Java." By Robert Hustead
Employ the SAX API to Map XML Documents To Java Objects. Covers difference between SA and DOM, compares mapping document with compiling code process. The main advantage of this article is the use of SAX2 interface and to provide a hand-on guide. You can also download the examples. To avoid waste yout time, do not try to copy-and-paste from html (just an advice).

There is also a copy at Sun:

Advanced topics on parsing XML with the SAX API.
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-10-2000/jw-1006-sax_p.html
"A beginner's guide to writing well-formed, well-defined XML." Excellent approach about XML syntax and DTD. It is not a long text and is not a hands-on guide but covers the most important topics about document definition. Also, provides good
links for XML resources and tools.
