Certainly.  Sun's package was used with servlets before it was
used with Swing, in fact ... there are a lot of ways to do it.

That package incorporates two rather different examples using
servlets with XML.  One is an XML validation service, the other
does document messaging over HTTP(S) in much the same way that
a workflow (e.g. Web Commerce) system would.

The basic rule is that whenever you do server side web processing
in Java, it'll be with a servlet.  So if the server is dynamically
generating some XML text to send to the client over HTTP, it'll
be a servlet.  Maybe the servlet is talking to some EJBs on the
next tier(s) ... fine!

I will encourage the use of any Java parser package that conforms
to the SAX and DOM APIs ... especially Sun's!  ;-)
