There is rarely a single "best" for anything. Any number of other libraries are available that provide an API for working with XML documents: XOM, dom4j, JDOM, XPath, ... Which one is best suited depends on your requirements. SAX is likely to be the fasted, while XPath is likely to be the slowest.

What is the difference between Jdom and dom4j?
I am not getting one more thing ...In JDOm and DOm4j we can use either SAX or DOM parser, then these parser contains the DOM in their name..JDOM and dom4j

I think ALL these libraries use SAX underneath, even DOM. In that sense, DOM is not really a "parser", it's an XML API.

JDOM, dom4j and XOM are alternative DOM APIs. If you study the documentation on their respective web sites, you should get a feel of what their differences are.
