Hi to all of you
First of all i would like to wish you an happy new year.
I'm rather new in this mailing list and in the xml developpement in fact. My
first programming language was Java, and i must tell you that jdom is the
best API ever made. I really wanted to knock my head to the wall when i see
the DOM or Sax API.
Fortunatly, Jason and Brett are here to exclusively think in java ;-))
Sorry if my questions will sounds stupid to some of you :
I've noticed that JDom (Java world article) uses a SaxBuilder to parse a xml
file, and we have the choise to use validation or not.
in jason's examples validation is never set to true.
I don't know what is exactly validation. But i think it is something
like a verification to know if the inputted xml file is valid or not.
Does validation checks according to the dtd assigned to the xml file ?
If validation is set to true, and xml file is not valid what kind of
exception is thrown ? saxExceptions ?
Thanks to all of you who can me see the light ;-))
