Is there a (simple) way to create the missing pieces automatically if I try
to add an element to an optional parent(s), e.g.
<!ELEMENT email(from, to, cc?, subject, body)>
<!ELEMENT from (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT cc (mailadress)>
<!ELEMENT mailaddress (name, host, ..)>
Assume i want to add the name of mailaddress as follows
Since cc is optional this expression might fail. In that case I would like
JDOM to create element cc and name as a side effect. I do understand this
might get difficult, certainly if the cardinality of cc changes to cc*.
What do you think about this idea?
