So I need to retrieve distinct values for the Source Element in this XML. I identified 2 ways:
1. A function called distinct-values. Gave an exception. Here's how i tried it:
2. I tried a method i took from this website link Here;s how I tried to implement it:
The problem with the second method is that i need to look for the preceding sibling of the parent and not the preceding sibling of the SOURCE Element. And I cant find a function for finding the parent element.

List lList1 = inputXML.selectNodes("/RESPONSE/RECORD[not( SOURCE/text()=preceding-sibling::RECORD/SOURCE/text())]/SOURCE/text() ");
Anyone know a better way ?
But still can't figure out what the Object Type of the thing is thats stored in the List.
