I'm using Tomcat to produce jsp which I want to be able to output and read XML. I have written my code using JDOM which works when the JSP isn't connected to it (i.e. in a separate file and using a command line interface to test it). However, once I link it up to my JSP pages I get little or no XML reading / writing. Does anyone know why this is?

Cause you are doing something wrong. . .
Can't be sure from your post what it is though. Have you tried viewing the source generated by your jsp/servlet? That's the first place to look when a JSP doesn't act the way you think it should.

Ok I think I have somethimg more specific for you. I have used JDOM to read my XML from the command line with no problem. I Then ported the code (cut and paste) to a Java Servlet. Within the try block of the servlet I added a simple "Hello World" type html code using print writer as a test at the end of the code, concerning JDOM. I have now found that if I comment out all but the first line of code cocerned with reading the XML (SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder() ; ) The Hello World message is displayed. The servlet appears to not like the next line when I included the program line by line (for debug)
Document aDocument = File("xml/myFile.xml"));
Any suggestions?
