That's not a valid XPath expression. "child::" must be followed by a
NodeTest. I can't suggest a correction because I've no idea what the writer
of this expression thought it might mean. Perhaps just child::NPModule  -
people often seem to throw in a "//" as magic pixie-dust when they don't
know what they're doing.

hi all ,

i have upgraded to JDOM1 but the xpath which used to run properly is giving
exceptions after upgrading to JDOM1

this is the xpath i'm using ..

"child:://NPModule [ @name='test' and @parent = 'test1']

I get following exception
org.jdom.JDOMException: Invalid XPath expression: "child:://NPModule [
@name='config' and @parent = 'kcli']": Expected <QName> or *

What is the reason?

can any buddy suggest/reason solution for the same ?
