Take a look at this xml file.

<name firstname="abc" lastname="xyz" />

Is there any possibility to retrive both the attribute name and attribute value?

I my project I am retriving the element "name" and from that I want retrive both the attribute name and and attribute value

using Element's getAttribute() method we can retrive attribute value in our case "abc" and "xyz"

Element e =new Element();
String s1 = e.getAttribute("firstname");
I want to retrive "firstname" and "lastname" also.

Since everything is dynamic, attribute names may be different from time to time. So I wanted to retrive attribute name and from that retrive attribute value.

So one please help me

Look at the getAttributes method of org.w3c.dom.Node
It returns a NamedNodeMap with all of the attributes names and values.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
