I'm looking for a good XML book. I don't want any "unleashed" or "all you need to know.." as these books are junk if you know how to program and know your ways around a computer.. I need something short and to the point. Is the O'reilly book any good?
(usually they are so..)
On beforehand thanks,
Thomas

Thomas,
I have the O'Reilly book I think you are talking about ("Java and XML" by Brett McLaughlin). If you already know Java and want to get into XML, I recommend it. It covers XML from the start (what it is, why to use it). Or you can skip those chapters and go right into parsing some documents. It has an example or two on processing with servlets. If you haven't already, check out the web site for the book: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/javaxml/
If you want any more details about the book, let me know.
Bill
