Am running an xml application and the xml parses it and builds new xmls based on some xsl.
when i am doing this,its throwing transformationException as follows

javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: The prefix "DbGML" for element "DbGMLBGMMessage" is not bound.

Where DBGML are defined for the application.

Any idea why such 'not bound' exception is thrown?browsed some stuff on net but no success.

any help is appreciated.

That would mean, I think, that no ancestor of that element declares a namespace for which DbGML is the prefix. Look in your XML for namespace declarations. And make sure your parser is set up to be namespace-aware (although it probably is).
I agree. Here's the link:
