Doing job interviews. I know XML basics, but I want to familiarize
myself with the best that XML has to offer at the moment. What do I
need to learn? In other words, what is the dominant XML technology
being used at the moment for processing? What is the 'struts' of the
I've used a bit of JDOM, DOM4J, and JAXB. I know there are other
xml-to-java serialization-type technologies out there that are less
cumbersome - which do I need to know first? Which are most
interesting? Which could become market leaders?
Also, what are alternatives, if any, to XML? I know about just using
properties file, but if you've got serious data issues to work out, is
XML the only way to go?
