Jeffy, this is a bug in the Beta 4 release that has since been fixed.
You'll need to download the CVS source and rebuild by following the
instructions at http://www.jdom.org/downloads/source.html.

Just curious, are you on a Windows platform?  I got this same error when I
first downloaded to my Windows box.

Subject: [jdom-interest] StringIndexOutOfBoundsException

I am trying to run SAXBuilderDemo and I get  StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
: String index out of range :0

Document doc = builder.build(new File("contents.xml")); I am pretty sure I
am getting an exception on this code.

The complete exception is as follows:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 0

My Jbuilder lib points C:\jr\jdom\build\jdom-b4.jar
