Hi I am using sax parser to parse an xml file in java.Here is the xml file

I parsed the code and i could get all its element name and its attribute values.But I am interested in getting the details of the Mol and Name tags.Here is the code that I am using it do it.

But what i actually want is when the tag name is mol i want its type alone.
then if the type is "compound" then i want only the attributes long_name="EzGeny" and value="2241" and dont want the rest.
How do i got about doing this,any suggestions please

if(strQName=="Mol" || strQName=="Name" )

In Java, string equality isn't checked with the "==" operator, it's checked with the "equals" method.
I agree. Here's the link:
