Guys, I am a newbie in XML. I need to transform HTML to XML. Any suggestions as what APIs should be used? I would prefer if any third parties arent used. Does JAXP or any other current packages in SDK1.4 support this?
Another question is that say I have read some XML file in DOM, made some changes in it. Now how can I write that modified file to replace the original or somewhere else?
On your first quexstion, hmmm....if you really don't want any third party tools, then the only thing I can think of is to parse the HTML using SAX and add any missing end elements. What is a start element is missing? Remove the end element would me my answer - HTML ignores it anyway so its not really adding value to your HTML.
Additionally, search this forum for HTML to XML converter. It was discussed before, but I don't have the links handy.
