Parse XML formatted data: Java Design Patterns and APIs for Android

JSON is the most popular data exchange format for mobile, but Android developers also sometimes need to work with XML formatted data files. As with JSON, the Android SDK includes a few standardized tools. You can use DOM-style parsing, since it’s part of the standard JDK and is included in Android, but DOM tends to be memory-heavy since it has to store an entire XML document in memory. Instead, it’s recommended that you use a streaming API to read from XML files, and a very lightweight API is included in the SDK: it’s named XMLPullParser.
