Hi Friends,

I am developing an application in which i have to read an xml, which is created by the data in all the tables in the database.

Now i have to read that xml and have to insert into databse when ever required.

My problem is that

NodeList orders = ordersRoot.getElementsByTagName("order");
NodeList products = ordersRoot.getElementsByTagName("product"); on

where order and product are can i give like this directly as the tables may vary..then how can i read and insert

can any one please suggest me...

Thanks & Regards<br />Sunesh Kumar Baachu

There appears to be no real JSP component to this question so I have moved it to the XML forum.

So you don't know what element name you will be looking for? Then you would just have to read the elements and find out what their names are. I will give you a link to a DOM tutorial:

And if you google for "java dom tutorial" or "java xml tutorial" you will find more similar tutorials.

There are examples of how to read an XML file with either DOM or SAX here.
