I tried with the below to parse in a existing xml document in a jsp page.
String getFileName;// dir of xml file
getFileName = request.getParameter("selected");
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document node = builder.parse(new File(getFileName));
When I try to load the page, the following error was displayed.
Class jsp_servlet._fypj._supplier._receivepip.Document not found.
It seems that the xml document is not found. Can someone tell me wat was the error here. thx.

The parse method for the DocumentBuilder class should be passed filename as a parameter. Instead of passing filename you have passed the directory name.
Check the Java API for XML Parsing 1.1.1 http://java.sun.com/xml/jaxp-1.1/docs/api/index.html
parse(java.io.File f)
Parse the content of the given file as an XML document and return a new DOM Document object.
