    Smile Best way to architect my java and XML project...

    Hi,

    I am very new to java programming and was looking for some help with the best way to make my project.

    I want to have a basic XML file to be parsed:

    <xml>
    <books>
    <book>
    <title>LOTR</title>
    <link>.../1.xml</link>
    </book>
    <book>
    <title>Bambi</title>
    <link>2.xml</link>
    </book>
    ..etc..
    </books>
    </xml>

    I want the title to displayed to the user in a list, and then when they click an option I want to grab the relevant file, 2.xml for bambi, then parse that file and display to the user.

    2.xml:
    <xml>
    <book>
    <element1>title</element1>
    <element2>dev</element2>
    <element3>pub</element3>
    <element4>pages</element4>
    ...etc...
    </book>
    </xml>


    What is the best method to achieve this??

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Sam

    Hello samiles. Welcome to the Java Programming Forums

    Take a look at this tutorial about DOM parse:

    http://www.javaprogrammingforums.com...dom-parse.html

    This is what I use when working with XML.
