This is the piece of code which i used. Please go through it. This doesnt seem to work.

<script language="Javascript">
var xmlObj;
var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");

xmlDoc.async = false;
// The xml file is present in the same folder where this jsp file is present

xmlObj = xmlDoc.documentElement;
alert(xmlObj); //i get a "null" here

Please do not post the same question to multiple forums: CarefullyChooseOneForum

Let's continue the discussion in this duplicate post in the XML forum, since the question has nothing to do with JSP.
I agree. Here's the link:
