Parsing XML usign Java

  Asked By: Bryant    Date: Jan 18    Category: Java    Views: 785

I have been stuck on this code snippet for a minute
DocumentBuilderFactory factory =
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = builder.parse(new InputSource(new
If I do a

System.out.println(doc.getDoctype() );

I get null for both. What am I doing wrong?

My XML is located below. It is not a file. The actual XML is the String:

xml var is:

- <REQUEST TIMESTAMP="2004-01-20 10:49:33.169" TotalDevices="32">

I am not sure what the problem is. Could you try
running the code  again after prefixing your xml  string
with this string:
<?xml version="1.0"?>

When using file  based xml, this declaration has to be
the first line in my file. Hope it works for you.
