    Default Re: XML Parsing

    Depends upon what you're doing with it. If you are just trying to pull data from your XML then a SAX approach may be best. If you are taking stuff out, moving things around, or adding xml then a DOM approach is prolly better. I suggest checking out Xerces Xerces Java Parser Readme which has a SAX and DOM api. I've also had experience with JDOM if DOM is the direction you're going.
