jParse is a jQuery plugin that allows you to quickly and easily parse XML file that has been fetched with an Ajax request. jParse gives you options for custom output, limit, count of items and the ability to run functions before and after jParse is finished. It is lightweight and cross browser code that has been tested with Firefox 2+, IE 6+, Safari 3+ and Opera 9+.
Since jQuery ajax method does not allow for cross domain AJAX requests; the XML that you would like to parse using jParse must be on the same domain from which you are working. Using jParse is fairly simple and you can easily use it to pull value of an XML node, the value of an attribute of an XML node, or the number of <items> in an XML document.
