I have written a java program which reads a particular node if an xml file (an attribute of the node containing some data) is copied in to a String variable. The code is as follows


So now reading a particular node's attribute data is fine, but depending upon the attributes data its parent node's attribute data is supposed to be read(travel up) is this possible or not, please help.
Thank you
