Can someone help me out.
This is about the XML Document.
I've got problem in extracting the attribute values of the elements as well as the data present between the elements.
I do not want to validate the XML Document.
I've tried using xerces.jar and xml4j.jar to extract the values but it reports of many missing api's. Can any one help me out and tell me as to where I may find all the available apis for XML.

Get the Xerces from
Follow the download and installation instructions. Also make sure your CLASSPATH is set properly. Even before plugging in your ContentHandler( or other handlers, ) just try the program with a simple loading and parsing call and see if that works.
Good luck,
