I am trying to parse a document but i cannot read any of the nodes.
DATASTREAM4 is a series of
The plan is to have a header (static string value), row (each iteration of sotransitem), and tail (static string value to close out the xml).
Using the string xmlbuild, I add the header then loop through each of the rows in DATASTREAM4.
It should look at a single value, compare it to the last, then do a series depending on the results. At the end of it all it adds the tail to close everything out.
If I use el.getText() it will read the entire sotransitem as expected. I can take that from each loop and append it to the string like so…
If i try to use any child nodes I get a null pointer.
I tried el.getFirstChild()…null
I cannot access any actual data within sotransitem
I can only guess that it is simply a literal string that VTD cant see as an XML and I need to tell it that it is XML or convert it somehow.
Could it be something to do with it being wrapped in cdata? Any other ideas?
