"Best" and "easiest" are always relative to the problem at hand, so we can't give general advice on that. The XmlFaq points to several introductions on how to use JAXP, the standard Java API for processing XML. You may also wish to investigate 3rd party APIs like XOM and JDOM.

Thanks Ulf for your fast reply, by the way the XML file i wanna edit is web.xml file in my WAR , so JAXP will help or any 3rd party will be better ?

"Better" in what regard? JAXP -like the other XML parsers and DOM implementations- doesn't care about what kind of XML file it's dealing with.
