net::sourceforge::nanoxml::XMLElement Class Reference

List of all members.

Detailed Description

XMLElement is a representation of an XML object. The object is able to parse XML code.

Parsing XML Data
You can parse XML data using the following code:
XMLElement xml = new XMLElement();
FileReader reader = new FileReader("filename.xml");
Retrieving Attributes
You can enumerate the attributes of an element using the method enumerateAttributeNames. The attribute values can be retrieved using the method getStringAttribute. The following example shows how to list the attributes of an element:
XMLElement element = ...;
Enumeration enum = element.getAttributeNames();
while (enum.hasMoreElements()) {
    String key = (String) enum.nextElement();
    String value = element.getStringAttribute(key);
    System.out.println(key + " = " + value);
Retrieving Child Elements
You can enumerate the children of an element using enumerateChildren. The number of child elements can be retrieved using countChildren.
Elements Containing Character Data
If an elements contains character data, like in the following example:
<title>The Title</title> you can retrieve that data using the method getContent.
Subclassing XMLElement
When subclassing XMLElement, you need to override the method createAnotherElement which has to return a new copy of the receiver.
