DOM gives you access to the information stored in your XML document as a hierarchical object model. DOM creates a tree of nodes (based on the structure and information in your XML document) and you can access your information by interacting with this tree of nodes.The textual information in your XML document gets turned into a bunch of tree nodes.
SAX chooses to give you access to the information in your XML document, not as a tree of nodes, but as a sequence of events! You ask, how is this useful? The answer is that SAX chooses not to create a default Java object model on top of your XML document (like DOM does). This makes SAX faster.
The SAX document handler you write does element to object mapping. If your information is structured in a way that makes it easy to create this mapping you should use the SAX API. On the other hand, if your data is much better represented as a tree then you should use DOM.
