When I try to parse an XML file with a # in the filename, (e.g. 00000291-00000001-00000117-C@#Test#1MB.xml), I get the following error:
java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: c

Do I have to rename the XML without the # characters or is there some other way?
Thanks.

public static void main(String args[])
{
// Load the XML file
try
{
DocumentBuilderFactory factory =
DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = builder.parse(args[0]);
System.out.println("success");
//PDFConverterHandler pdf = new PDFConverterHandler();
//System.out.println(pdf.convert(args[0]));
}
catch (Exception e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
