Hello,

I'm using GWT 2.4 on Windows 7
I'm trying to learn how to read in an xml file from the tutorial at DevGuideXML
It gives instruction on how to get the information from xml that is in a string.
Unfortunately it does not give any information about how to get the xml file into a string.
I found the answer to the following query at stackflow helpful Stackflow
I'm not sure where I should put the xml file in my project.
If I put the xml file in clients package or the server package I get a warning.
The warning occurs when I run the program, it says that it has not found the xml file.
If I put the xml file in the war package the warning stops but the file still does seem to be getting read

Where should I put the xml file?

Here is the contents of the xml file:



Here is my java code to read the xml file:



What I need to know is which package I put the xml file?
Is this code correct?

Hi,

I resolved my problem.
I found that I had imported the wrong namespace.
I changed the imports for both Text and Element and my program worked.
