How can a JSP process HTML form input data to create/addto/update an XML file?

You would have to write a JavaBean that interacts with the JSP to store and retrieve the data to and from the XML file, in response to an external POST operation. Basically, you would have to use an XML parser and an XML writer from within the bean for this purpose. I suggest you use the Apache Xerces parser (from http://xml.apache.org), the SAX2 package (from http://www.megginson.com/Software/) and the Xml-Writer package (also from http://www.megginson.com/Software/) for this purpose.
