IMHO, DOM is easier than sax.

I downloaded JDOM and was parsing xml in minutes.

if you want to create an xml file from a query just store each column as an element and store the groupings as a list of elements in the xml file.

a good article on coverting relational database to xml (though you are not doing that it will give you a good idea on how to map tables/columns to xml)

>> In which case JDom should be used and In which case SAX?
DOM load entire xml into memory, SAX is event driven.
DOM is easiler to use, it's good for small xml files.
SAX is more efficient and requires much less system resource. it can handle large xml files.
