Hello,
I just started using JDOM.
It seems a Text node can only append a Text node using JDOM?
I try to append an element to a text node like the following:

Inside <parent> element, <anotherChild> element already exists,
if I want to add the second line containing a textr node and
a <child> node with content, how can I do it?
thanks,

What happens is actually the following:

In clear, you don't have the notion of a "line" in XML. In the above XML code, parent has three children, namely the element anotherChild, a text node with the content "I am a child:", and finally another element called child.
The XML document above could be created with the following code:

I hope it helps

Thanks,
Sorry, I did not make it clear.
My intention was to put two nodes together nomatter its a
a text node or element. Its possible there
are other nodes after <child>

In order to do that, should I remove text node first, then
add it and <child> element together to <parent>?
Is there an easy way to do that?
thanks
