Well, the root element doesn't have a child which is a <ccsid> element, and therefore calling a method which asks for such an element returns null.

Doesn't JDOM have a method which returns descendant elements (not children) with a given name?

The root element, xml-fragment, has a child tag, vp:vpccsidgeneration, which has a child tag, ccsid.

Isn't that correct?

Please help. Thanks
