Query about jDOM.

I am using jDOM to generate XML file. I have <TEXT> element in XMl file. Now when I don�t have any value for <TEXT>, the generated element contains <TEXT />. But instead of that I required <TEXT></TEXT>. How to achieve this?


My blood is tested +ve for Java.

Either form is good legal XML for an empty element and will be handled propertly by XML parsers.

Why are you so sure that you require the second form?

My problem is that the program that generate is using parser, but program that read xml does not use the parser - it's other party who is reading it.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
