I could not get the question properly.Do you want to read value of a particular element from a xml file? If that is the case, you can read the xml into a dom and then xpath to fetch the values.

you can use dom4j open source library which implements DOM and XPATH specification using JAXP.

"vijay", welcome to the JavaRanch.

We're friendly here, but we do require members to have valid display names.

Display names must be at least two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed. And if you think about it a bit, you aren't the only "vijay" posting here.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with invalid display names will be deleted.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
