I am new to XML and the means for parsing an XML strings What I need is a little direction. First of all, let be say thank you to all for reading. Here us what I am doing. I am have a simple client to publish an xml encoded string using the embedded JMS for WebSphere Application Developer V5.1. I also have a simple client which is subscribing to the topic. I am using Digester (http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/digester.html) to parse the XML. The message is getting passed as it should, but the parsing is failing because of the following reason: java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol:-- then is the the xml formatted string.
My problem is how to spin up the *.dtd file. My initial thoughts are to create a web server and place the dtd file in a directory. This will allow validation of the XML and provide the correct protocol. Based on others experience from this forum, is this sound? Thanks loads!
