Hi,

I have the following program to write an xml file.



I get the following error:

org.apache.crimson.tree.DomEx: HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR: This node isn't allowed there.
at org.apache.crimson.tree.XmlDocument.appendChild(XmlDocument.java:661)
at CreateXML.buildXML(CreateXML.java:74)
at CreateXML.getDateAndTime(CreateXML.java:57)
at CreateXML.main(CreateXML.java:47)

Could someone plz tell me the reason for this??

Why you chose to reproduce the whole thing in your post when the error was in line 74, I just can't imagine.

Look at the JavaDocs for Node Interface, appendChild method in the org.w3c.dom package.
You will instantly see that HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR can be thrown if the Node is of type Document and you try to append an Element to it.
Sheesh!

Hi!

Thank u for the solution. My program just works fine. Yep!! I realize my mistake.

However, I do come across people in this forum, who ask for the whole code to understand the error!!!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
