Question:  C.20 Can I use Java to create or manage XML files?

Yes, any programming language can be used to output data from any source in XML format. There is a growing number of front-ends and back-ends for programming environments and data management environments to automate this.

There is a large body of `middleware' written in Java and other languages for managing data either in XML or with XML output. There is a suite of Java tutorials (with source code and explanation) available at http://developerlife.com.

Please do not mail the FAQ editor with questions about your Java programming bugs. Ask one of the Java newsgroups instead.
