Hello

Assuming that I've got this XML File


and I want to search for all elements that contain particular <a> and <b> values... how do I do that in xpath? This for example checks each value seperately and returns the 2 sets of <a> and <b>...



but rather than the SET operator I want the AND, so it should only return the nodes that contain both values...

can someone advice me on how to tackle this?

I tried this but it didnt work


Thanks
HannaH

You want "the elements for which a is something and b is something else", right? So that'sIf you say out loud what you want, usually you will find the XPath is very similar to what you said.

I've tried this before and it didnt work , it says



could the problem be that Jaxon 1.1.1 does not yet support the AND operation?!!

I have never heard of Jaxon, but if it doesn't support basic features of XPath then it's not worth using. I notice in the XPath Recommendation that they use "and" for "and". You could try that instead of "AND".
