XML is used to display stuff on the page, the items it displays is Java objects, but you cant make a real program with just XML you will need Java to manipulate the objects, think of XML as the HTML in a web page, and the Java as a combination of front end and back end programming languages in web development for example JavaScript/JQuery and PHP, you program listeners like in JQuery but it also accesses back end stuff like databases and files like PHP etc.

It is not mandatory to you have the knowledge of XML, because android has it's own define XML tags. If you have the knowledge of core java them you can go with android.
