Hi to all my friends,

I have a new problem today.

I have to parse a simple XML doc, like this one:


My Java method take an int and a String that represents the attribute "locale".

So, the method getParsing (3, "en_GB") returns "minutes", or getParsing (1, "it_IT") returns secondi.

I have found a complex way to get the value I desire, with 2 for cycles: the code is terrible.


So I want to know if, using DOM or another utility, I can have direct access to my XML file.

Any solution?

Of course. With DOM you always have direct access to the XML document. What code were you using before which didn't have direct access to it?

But "direct access" isn't a technical term in the XML world. So perhaps it means something different to you than what I think it means. We can't see any of your code so that's certainly a possibility.

Something like this:



to retrieve all elements in the XML file posted before.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
