Hi,

It would be better if somebody helps me to resolve an issue I am facing while converting XML string into JDom Document object.

The XML string looks as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<items>
<item>
<displayText>
</displayText>
<linkItem>
<link pageID="Person_homePagePage.do" modal="true">
<displayText>David</displayText>
<params>
<param name="id">10000</param>
</params>
</link>
</linkItem>
<displayText>is 30 years old.</displayText>
</item>
</items>

and java code looks as

org.jdom.Document document = null;
SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();

try {
document = builder.build(new StringReader(xmlString));
} catch (JDOMException e) {
//
} catch (IOException e) {
//
} catch (Exception e) {
//
}
return document;

in runtime I get error like [Document: No DOCTYPE declaration, Root is [Element: <items/>]]

Can somebody helps me what is the problem with the XML and how can I resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

What makes you think that's an error? If an exception were really being thrown, you wouldn't know what it was because your catch-blocks are all empty. (Don't do that, you need to know what the exception was). So where is that output coming from in your code?

(And when you post code, or XML, please post it inside the "code" tags which you can get by clicking the "Code" button above the box you're about to post in.)

Well, there's no doctype; maybe you need one?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
