Sorry Peter if my Email was a bit confusing. I don't want to do this
to validate XML (like you say here, what for).

What I want to do is the following: Let's supposed I have two Java
Web Servers (or Application servers or whatever), and they are in
two different geographical locations.

I want them to use XML as their communications protocol, on top of
HTTP. So that for example one side asks the other for sales info,
and the other replies with the sales info. All this request and
reply happens via XML with my own tags.

My question was, I know how to parse XML now, but how do I go about
dynamically creating the XML (easy) and sending it to the other
side via HTTP? and then have the other side listen on the HTTP
port, realize I'm sending XML, and pass the stream to the XML

Thanks for any help!!!
