    Default Increasing the numerical suffix of a variable

    I have an XML file and I am reading the XML file using DOM and getting the tag values. I want to increase the indent of the variable to feed the commands and then I need to store them in an array

    Element eElement = (Element) nNode;
    String COMMAND1 = null;
    COMMAND1 = getTagValue("DS_DESCRIPTION", eElement);

    I want to enter the commands in COMMAND1, COMMAND2 ...........and proceeding till I have entered all the commands in COMMAND variable

    Default Re: Increasing the numerical suffix of a variable

    You could put the values into an array or use a Map. You can not create variable names when the program executes.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
