Hi all,


I want to use xml rather than a database for a project I'm working on. I will be saving any data to xml files and I know that I can use standard IO utilities to write to a file but when it comes to checking if the xml is valid and proper then what API should I be using. I'd like to know what API allows me to read and write valid xml..whatever on is the handiest for an xml beginner please..

Thanks,


Colm

The standard Java library is all you need to create/remove/update/delete information in an XML document.

Search for "Processing XML with Java by Harold" to get a free online book which is VERY complete.

If you use the library methods to create and save an XML document it will automatically be correctly formed.
