I have a problem to solve. I need to filter very large XML documents using
. I need to provide a list of xpaths to generate a smaller versions of the documents. for example...
<aaa> <bbb>Hello</bbb> <ccc>123</ccc> </aaa> <zzz> <yyy> <xxx>David</xxx> <vvv>true</vvv> </yyy> </zzz>
<aaa> <bbb>Hello</bbb> </aaa> <zzz> <yyy> <xxx>David</xxx> <vvv>true</vvv> </yyy> </zzz>
What is a good way to do this using Java APIs?
