Hello Phil, 

It's right, I can read the apidocs and that helps.

In my case, I think it's better to use a DOM, and not a SAX.

And then, retrieve each Element and Values 

For example, build into a Document , and not only valid them , then parse it
               // builder.build(fichierxml);
                Document doc = builder.build(fichierxml);
                Element applications = doc.getRootElement();
                Iterator itr = (applications.getChildren()).iterator();
                while (itr.hasNext()) {
                    Element app = (Element) itr.next();

  Using JDOM you can read this XML file (see http://www.jdom.org/docs/apidocs/org/jdom/input/SAXBuilder.html) into a JDOM Document (see http://www.jdom.org/docs/apidocs/org/jdom/Document.html). This document will have a root node called "applications" (see http://www.jdom.org/docs/apidocs/org/jdom/Document.html#getRootElement()). This root node will have two child elements, both called "application" (see http://www.jdom.org/docs/apidocs/org/jdom/Element.html).
  Either using the JDOM API (to which these links take you) or using the JDOM XPath API (see http://www.jdom.org/docs/apidocs/org/jdom/xpath/XPath.html) you can traverse this DOM to read the data (attributes, child elements etc.).
  Hope that helps,
  Phil :n)

  Hello , 

  Have You Please an example with an XML File and more than one item.
  I would build this file in a Java Object. But there are more than one "application"
  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
  <applications  xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"  xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="applications.xsd">
     <application key="appli1">
     <application key="appli1">
     <application key="appli2">
