I am having some XPath trouble and I can't seem to find good answers after searching the internet, so I am hoping that someone here has a good idea. I have a document that looks like:
My UI wants to find B&O railraod. Naively I did the following XPath:
But this didn't work agains my XML database (NeoCore XMS). I then changed the XPath to
and it worked. This leads to two questions:
1) Do the specs say I have to expand entity references in my XPath query?
2) Is there any way I can use JDOM or JDOM XPath to do the expansion for me, kind of in the spirit that Element.setText() and XMLOutputter expand them for me?
Thanks in advance,
