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.

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?
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
