hi! all
I am new to JAXB and am finding it extremely useful.
However I have a problem. While in my code I don't want to have to parse
or otherwise be aware of the underlying XML (this is why I'm using
JAXB) I do have to find some elements using XPath expressions. From what I
can see from code generated by JAXB there is no XPath navigation API
included. I realise I could probably go the DOM+XPathAPI route but
due to resource constraints (very large number of documents to manage)
this approach (especially the DOM bit) is too heavyweight.
My ideal would be JAXB to roll those nice Java classes and hide the XML
and a related JAXB XPath API .
Does any one know whether JAXB has support for XPATH API?
Many thanks in advance,
I agree. Here's the link:
