Givent the following element declaration:
<!ELEMENT Request (JobCreationRequest | JobModificationRequest | JobEstimationRequest | JobControlRequest | ServiceControlRequest)?>
A Request element can have one of the listed children. Is there a way to get the child element without attempting getChild("JobCreationRequest") then if that fails try getChild("JobModificationRequest") an so on.
What I really want to do is get the first (only) child of the Request element then use element.getName() to determine which one actually appears in the document.
