Java and XML
By Brett McLaughlin
This is the first book to cover the most recent version of the DOM specification (DOM Level 2) and the SAX API (SAX 2.0). It's also the first book to cover JDOM, a new API that makes it easier for Java applications to manipulate XML. If you are developing with XML, or think that you will be in the future - if you're involved in any aspect of web publishing - or if you're developing software for electronic commerce, Java and XML will be an indispensable companion.
