You can use the classes and methods in Apache Xalan
(freely downloadable) or in Saxon to do this.
To read the xml file you can use the SaxReader and to
write an xml output, you can either use java.io or
DomWriter class.

> Please help  me, Since i couldnt get required
information  in the net.

The documentation for both these is available as API
and is freely downloadable.

You *will* have to read a bit about XML and the
methods in Sax and Dom before you can attempt this.

Instead of using Xalan, Xerces or something else directly you should use
This is a common interface and set of APIs for working with XML. Go to sun
and read about JAXP.

I think the best approach for xml  based binding  is JAXB. Using JAXB, u can
perform marshalling and unmarshalling of data  in XML files. so u can use JAXB
api's and convert xml file data into java  classes instances (marshalling), then
do whatever u wanna do with it and finally convert java class instances into xml
files(unmarshalling). I know SAX, DOM, JAXP all work to this.. but beleive me,
nothing is simpler than JAXB.
