Document Builder Validating() method validating − true if the parser produced will validate documents as they are parsed; false otherwise. NA The following example shows the usage of parsers. /** * Parse a document with validation switched off and the loading of external dtds disabled * @param resource Path The path to a resource on the classpath * @return a parsed document, without validation * @throws Exception if there was a problem parsing the file */ public static org.w3Thereafter, JAXP has evolved to an extent, where now it supports a lot more things (like validation against schema while parsing, validation against preparsed schema, evaluating XPath expressions, etc.,) than only parsing an XML document.So, JAXP is a lightweight API to process XML documents by being agnostic of the underlying XML processor, which are pluggable.
Detailed XXE Prevention guidance for a number of languages and commonly used XML parsers in those languages is provided below.
The following guide provides concise information to prevent this vulnerability.

An XML document is considered ‘well-formed’ if it follows the normal rules of XML. In the example below we look at validating an XML document while using DOM, SAX and St AX.
On the other hand, an XML is considered valid if it follows the rules specified in the DTD or XSD.
