Reading and writing XML file sin JAVA is very easy.

You need a parser to read and write XML files

basically there are 2 types of parsers
DOM parser and SAX parser
 DOM parser - reads the data and holds it in memory like a tree and you can walk thorugh or add elemens  or nodes in the XML

SAX parser is lightweight and is used for one time reading.
