Re: Search methods for DOM...
If you're using a XML Parser which supports an integrated XSLT engine, then on any Node of your XML Tree, you can typically use XSL Patterns (recently renamed to "XPath expressions") to do sophisticated in-memory searches using the same familiar notation you have learned for XSLT transformations. The two I am aware of which support this are Oracle's XML Parser "V2" (v220.127.116.11.1) which you can get at http://technet.oracle.com/tech/xml, as well as the MSXML parser. Using the Oracle XML "v2" Parser you can do something like: NodeList nl = myNode.selectNodes("/this/that[somecondition], myNode); To get back a node list of matching "that" elements which occur as children of "this" elements and which have "somecondition" being true. _________________________________________________________ Steve Muench, Consulting Product Manager & XML Evangelist Business Components for Java Dev't Team BC4J: http://technet.oracle.com/product/tools/appjava/info/techwp20/wp.html XML: http://www.oracle.com/xml
