XML - JDOM question

Hello all ye ranchers!!...
My problem is simple
I'm using JDOM to "read" an XML file, when reading I get the attributes, but I can't tell the difference between an attriibute which is part of a list and a "regular" attribute.
e.g-



prop = is the attribute from a list
supe = is a "regular" attribute


Thank you all
just Dave

Well first of all, your terminology is wrong. 'prop' and 'supe' are element names. The things like 'name="use"' are attributes. But to answer your question: what difference were you expecting to tell? There are prop elements and there are supe elements. What did you expect JDOM to tell you about those elements?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
