Hi Prabhu,
JDOM comes with a jdom.jar and xerces.jar files. Those are all you need to use if for parsing xml documents. If you have the source code and want to use the Build.bat/sh file to build the binaries again, its still ok. If you build the binaries, then it is better to have the new jdom1-b-4.jar (something by similar name) and the xerces.jar files in the CLASSPATH and remove any other xerces.jar or jdom.jar from the CLASSPATH.
Also, some books have the following code:
org.jdom.inpout. Builder builder = new
Document doc = File(args[0]));
Now if you unarcheive the jdom.jar or look in the source files
under org/jdom/input fodler there's no nor does
the declaration of DOMBuilder says that it extends Builder.
Hence it might be good to use DOMBiulder builder = new
These are a couple of things that I experienced with Jdom.
Do share ur exp.
Hope this helps...
