This book explains the basics of XML. Discussion is mainly focussed on using the SAX parser to read XML data. However there is no discussion on DOM or XSL. The examples are not specifically useful in learning how to build XML applications. The book is also weighed down by a verbose and fragmented writing style which makes it quite an effort to keep reading. To its credit the book does provide in-depth coverage on MS and SAX parsers and a few sample applets. However the book fails in terms of not providing examples of real life J2EE/J2ME applications.
