How To Read and Write XML Documents with GDataXML

This tutorial will show you how to do exactly that! We'll create a project that reads a simple XML document that contains a list of RPG party members, and construct our own objects based on the XML. We'll then add a new player to the party, and save it back out to disk again.

This tutorial uses GDataXML, Google's XML processing library. I chose GDataXML since it performs well for DOM parsers, supports both reading and writing, and is so easy to integrate. However, if you are using a different DOM parser, it should be almost exactly the same as this but just slightly different API calls.

Special thanks to Saliom for suggesting writing this tutorial!
