Here's an example of how to create XML using DOM and the JAXP API.

Ulf,

I have one more problem now . After generating and populating the XML, from other part of my program I need to read the text in each element node.
and i tried using the below code

But on the line marked 'here' I am getting a nullPointer exception (the ele1 is null). For this method I am passing (Document doc,Element root) as the parameters. I am not able to figure out why ele1 is not getting a value.
I am using this code to generete the XML

A sample of my XML document is below.

PLease help me to solve this problem.

Thanks.

Could the problem be that the document contains "OptionsIndex" elements, while the code looks for "optionsIndex"?

Ulf,

You are right. That was the problem.
I should have looked at the code more carefully.
thanks again for your help.

Regards.
