I've just started using jdom to write an application that creates a JDOM
object from an XML file, manipulates it and then feeds it to Xalan to do
XSLT processing. I'm running into a problem though. If I use the
getChildren method on my root Element, it correctly returns a list ofthe
root element's children. If I use getChildren with as the argument the
name of an element that occures multiple times as the child of the root
element, nothing is returned. A test is below(i'm using python as the
programming language with the jython interpreter so I can use java
classes from python, but it should be no different form using native java):
for member in doc.getRootElement().getChildren():
print "\n\nAnd next:\n\n"
for member in doc.getRootElement().getChildren("featureMember"):
The first loop correctly displays several times "featureMember"
but after the "And next: " nothing is displayed:
Parsing and transforming to JDOM succeeded.
Shouldn't it be possible to use getChildren with a name argument to
return only the child elements with a specific name? Now I have to loop
through all the child elements to create a list of the child elements I
want. I'd rather get a list of those elements with just the getChildren
functioncall. The XML file I'm using is in the attachment. I hope
anybody can help me with this.
