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 ( to parse the XML. The message is getting passed as it should, but the parsing is failing because of the following reason: 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!

Could you post a few lines of the code that leads to this exception of yours?
