You'd in your own code import the XML processor packages as
you would any package, instantiate the processor, and use it
as you would any XML parser/processor. No different. If you
don't know how to do that, either snoop around in the Xindice
org.apache.xindice.xml.dom package (which is the compressed
DOM package), or if you don't want to use the compressed DOM,
just a normal DOM, you'd just instantiate a processor as part
of Sun's Java2. If you're not using Sun's Java 2, you'd have to
locate the documentation on how to create and use XML parsers
using your Java version. Sun has an API called JAXP that you
should probably familiarize yourself with -- in doing so you'll
find documentation on how to set up and use general-purpose
XML processors. A number of the major Java implementations use
the JAXP API, which insulates you from having to know about
which Java implementation is available.

Hope that helps,

   "Peoples' primary requirement is that some kind of coherence be
    provided. Stories give people the feeling that there is meaning,
    that there is ultimately an order lurking behind the incredible
    confusion of appearances and phenomena that surrounds them. This
    order is what people require more than anything else; yes, I
    would almost say that the notion of order or story is connected
    with the godhead. Stories are substitutes for God. Or maybe the
    other way round." -- Wim Winders
