XML for Data Transfer

I am new to XML and have been looking at various web sites for some help,
but so far have not found anything that helps me with my requirements. 
       Most of the info I have found has been related to displaying data
from XML in a document or web page. I am interested in taking data from a
file in XML format and using Java as application, writing data to a
database. I am ok about the Java and database side of things but am puzzled
about how to get data from a file in XML form - do I need a "parser" or do I
write my own code to read the XML and extract the data items? 
      Can anyone point me in the right direction for using XML in this way
rather than for display purposes? 
      If possible, can anyone give a coded example for this thing?

Thanx in advance.
