An easy way to read XML with java

To work with the XML document in Java, you have to create a document object in which you can load the XML file. To create the document object you have to use the classes.


_______________________________________________


DocumentBuilderFactory and the DocumentBuilder. The import statement at the top would contain,

import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.w3c.dom.*;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder;

which are mandatory.

Now, you can create DocumentBuilderFactory object and then use this object's newDocumentBuilder() method to create the DocumentBuilder object. With this DocumentBuilder object you can create a Document object that can be used to load the XML file that you want to use in your Java programming.

After you have loaded the XML document, you can create a node list by using the getElementByTagName() method of the document object. This would give an array and this can be stored in a NodeList object and then can be looped using "for" loop to print out the elements in the format you want.
