Can any one please tell me how to read closing tag using dom4j?
e.g. </batch>
I tried to read it using element.getQualifiedName(), but dom4j skips everything after slash(/).

Thanks,

That's not how DOMs work. They don't deal with tags, they deal with elements. So when you have something like

you have a "batch" element which has two "entry" elements as its children. Each of those "entry" elements has a text node as its only child.

If you're trying to deal with tags then a SAX parser might be a slightly better choice. But you shouldn't be trying to deal with tags anyway, because XML itself is described in terms of elements.

Ok. Will try to implement the code using SAX parser.
Thanks,
