Xml data is an understandable format. Perhaps you could better define your requirement?
You basically have 2 or 3 typical ways to work with XML. One is with serial access, another is with the DOM, and another is with XSLT.
Personally, if I am "converting" xml to some other form, such as to HTML or to rtf or soemthing like that, I prefer XSLT.
Look somewhere like http://java.sun.com/webservices/jaxp...ial/index.html
to see some options
