Default XML Config reader

I have a config reader in my app that reads a text file. I would like to replace this with an XML version. Does anyone have any suggestions?

My system has a java component that I will probably write in Java, plus 2 * .Net console applications which will be using .NET XML code.

This is my first attempt at XML.

Is it possible to write a generic config reader class (per language) where validation of a config.XML is stored in an associated schema or DTD, instead of in the config class, i.e., decouple it? Is that what it is all about?

Any help appreciated.

In .Net XML can be validated against a Schema quite easily using a XmlReader and XmlReaderSettings.


I'm sure similar validation is possible in Java.
