You can write quick one-off 10-line scripts with Perl, Python, and
probably many other scripting languages.  A Java app takes a little
more work, but the clean object-oriented structure allows you to do
harder things without going completely insane, and there are an awful
lot of good, higher-level XML libraries for Java (though the Python
and Perl collections are growing fast).

All the best,
