I'm finally able to consume web services through our proxy server and now I have a XML file. Where do I start with parsing? I'm confused by the plethora of parsers; SAX, DOM, XSLT, Xerces, etc., and don't know where to start.
If it makes a difference, I'm getting the XML from the National Weather Service to build a web page with the weather forecast. I don't want all our users constantly hitting the NWS website so I need to store this information. I'm thinking I need to populate a bean and store it in the context.
Any tips on how to get started? Am I on the right track?

But now I'm not sure what to do with that Object created on line 34. I have a folder full of classes created by JAXB from the XSD file, including an ObjectFactory class, but don't know what the next step should be.
