Which of the following XML technologies can be used to determine the location of
a particular XML element in XML document?

XML Schema




I guess these are xpath and xpointer....
Any indifferences??

Looks like a trivial question, but in order 'to determine the location of
a particular XML element in XML document' all that is needed and used is an XPath expression. An XPointer is simply an XPath expression, often a location path, enclosed in the parentheses of xpointer().
However, An XPointer can identify points and ranges, which are two new nodes types.
So, I would also answer XPath and XPointer but it's a close call

That's right.XPATH and XPOINTER would be the correct choices.
