    I think u can use the parser "ant"

    It used in most of the industries
  3. For Java, the most popular parser is probably Xerces. It is Open Source and uses the industry standard JAXP, DOM and SAX APIs. Most XML-Java books use it for their examples. If you are learning, I recommend you start with it.

    An interesting alternative is JDOM, which is earier to work with.
