I was also pretty new to XML, but decided to use XML for configuration. If
you are working in Java, JDOM (http://www.jdom.org) is a pretty simple way
of parsing your configuration into a tree. Unless your configuration is
huge, I would not worry about the cost of parsing the config, as you can do
it once and keep a handle to any elements that you may need after

Subject: Really new, seeking advice.

I'm pretty new to xml and I'm looking to convert a config file for an
application into XML. I wondering how I should parse the config. Should I
validate or not? For a mere config file which interface should I use SAX,
SAX2 or DOM? Would DOM be overkill? Also do anyone know of any web pages
with a good tutorial of how to program using Xerces-C?
