    Default Make JComboBox fill with id's from xml file

    If I have an xml file and it's full of different environments and I want to display them in a drop down list - how would I do that?

    The xml in file is simply just:

    <Environment id = " database 1">
    //xml elements in environment

    xml file is just called XmlFile.xml

    See the tutorial for how to use a JComboBox: How to Use Combo Boxes (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)
