I didn't use XML files for a very long time and I have forgot how to interact with complicate files. Need to retrieve the value of an Element in an XML file that is sitting too deep in that. For example:
I want to retrieve the latitude value that appears here: DirectionsResponse/route/leg/step/start_location/lat. Need to do the same for Longitude and latitude/Longitude for the end_location. "leg" contains more elements but I want just "step". Also, "step" elements are not always the same quantity, so need to check the size of the "leg" or how many "step" contains. I made some tries but all have failed! Please anybody knows how my for loop should be in order to getting correctly all "start_location" and "end_location" from all "step"?
That's cool thanks for quick reply. There is a problem however. Cause I'm working on Android API 7 and need to stick on that API, I can't use XPath stuff. There is any way to make it work on API 7 or there is an alternative way using SAX Parser?
Ok, I believe is better to stick to current way, because I don't want to mess with new libs. So for example I have a file like this .. link. As you can see contains a lot of <step>. So I want to retrieve from each <step> the <start_location>/<lat>,<lng> and <end_location>/<lat>,<lng>. How I will be able to do that on API 7? For each route the <step> element vary...
