Support for XML was primarily through third-party libraries (such as Apache Xerces or JDOM).

Fortunately, that has changed, and now you can get the Java XML Pack, a toolset for dealing with everything XML in Java.

We look at validating an XML document against a DTD.

We also look at other utilities, such as XPath and Extensible Stylesheet Transformation (XSLT), that are built into the . For a long time, XML was not built into the Java API.

The SAX parser is an event-driven parser in which the parser fires off events when it encounters XML elements.

Users write content handlers, which they can register with the parser.

An XML document in which every opening tag has a closing tag is said to be well formed.

As long as the XML document is well formed, you can fabricate the tags in any way you want.

An XML document can be validated against a DTD (the set of rules that define the type and structure of the XML tags) or an XML schema.
