Hi All,

I want to read XML files using J2SE, I am confused whether should I treat the XML as text file and start reading OR Is there any JAVA API that can help me in that?


Thanks and Regards,

You can use either SAX or DOM.

javax.xml package contains the related api. Googling "java xml parsers" will give you useful results.

JDOM is a well-known DOM library.

I actually prefer http://www.dom4j.org/

Both DOM and SAX are programming language agnostic APIs, which make them kind of awkward to use from a Java perspective (for example, they don't use Java collections were it would be appropriate).
