Hi,

I am transforming xml file into a html file, after get user input,
I try to merge user input to the original xml file. Instead of
scanning xml file and locating tags (nasty coding), is there a better
way to do it?
I am using xerces+sax. Is there a way like: build a tree for xml file,
add new nodes (input) to the tree, and transform it back to xml file
with added content?
thanks

What you are describing is processing with the DOM - Document Object Model (tree) in which the entire XML document resides in memory and can be directly manipulated. The programming style is completely different from SAX but can be done with the same Xerces library or the classes built into Java 1.4.
