The standard API for handling XML in Java is called JAXP, and you can find some introductory articles in the XML FAQ.

The details on how to access the XML data differ a bit depending on where the XML file originates - the client or the server.

Once you have the XML, there are various ways to process them - mainly SAX, DOM and XPath. Which is best depends on how the XML looks like, and what you intend to do with it.

I'd rather use Dom4J - it's a much nicer API: http://www.dom4j.org/

Unless you really have to read *huge* documents - then you will probably *have* to use SAX...

Note that the original post mentions input to an applet, therefore he should stick with the standard java library. JDOM or DOM4J would require that the client have those libraries installed, a useless complexity.

Hi Shalini,

I am also looking for the same solution but thing is in my case Server is the one from which my flow will be handling XML and using in EJB, so if you have found something easily adoptable please give your inputs.

thanks
