This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Are you talking about bulding the in-memory tree representation of the XML document? If you use a DOM Parser and parse the document, it returns you a Document object reference which *is* the DOMTree. Document document = parser.parse(uri);
Then you can recursively traverse the Document object just like the way you traverse the nodes in a tree data structure. If my explanation is not clear, I suggest you download the Xerces parser from xml.apache.org and check out the DOMWriter sample program. Good luck,

Ajith Kallambella, Thank you for responding. Let me try to explain alittle better what I am trying to do. I want to take an XML file be able to veiw it as a JTree edit it, then convert back to XML so that I can get an XSL. What I have done so far is convert XML to DOM. I thought this would be the best way to edit the XML. However, was using JTreeOutputter to veiw my XML as a Tree but with DOM JTreeOutputter is not working because of incompatable types (org.jdom.Document and org.w3c.dom.Document conflict.) Do you have any advice on an easier way, or how to finish this way off. Thank you very much, m pap
