This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I think its a good idea to take an open source xml parser and use it to parse the xml. You can download one from: http://xerces.apache.org/xerces-j/ If you try to parse that on your own you will be dead. That site also has some basic usage examples. Hope this helps.

HI Nitesh Kant,
Firstly, Thank you for your reference link, but i think this is too difficult to understand.... Because i am just a beginner....
What you are trying to do is parsing an xml file. By parsing i mean that you run through the xml file peeping into elements and then making a decision based on the type of element you encounter. Now, if you try to do this on your own, you will be re-inventing the wheel as you are not the first person to do the same. For that we have readily available open source parsers. One of those is a xerces parser by apache. This parser implements dom and sax specifications of xml parsing. Its difficult to explain all this on a post, so i would suggest that you first understand the area of xml parsing before launching in to do what you want to.
