This chapter introduced XML processing and illustrated the many facets of XML processingparsing, generation, and transformation. A brief introduction to each of these topics was presented in addition to several high-level examples. The examples were purposely made almost trivial to illustrate XML processing at a high level. Don't worry, the examples in the upcoming chapters become increasingly more difficult as we move on to more advanced topics.
For example, the next chapter, Chapter 3, "Event-Driven Parser Modules," focuses solely on event-driven parsers. Detailed examples for several of the more popular event driven parsers are provided.
