XML Parsers

XML parsers are software packages that you use as part of an application such as Oracle 8i, which includes good XML support, or as part of your own programs. You use an XML parser to dissect XML documents and gain access to the data in them. Starting in Chapter 10, you'll see how to put Sun Microsystems's Java language to work with XML. The current version of Java, version 1.4, contains a great deal of built-in support for working with XML. Here's a list of some of the other XML parsers out there:

Parsers will break up your document into its component pieces and make them accessible to other parts of a program, as we'll see later in this book; some parsers check for well-formedness, and fewer check for document validity. However, if you just want to check that your XML is both well formed and valid, all you need is an XML validator.
