    Default Java and JDOM2


    I'm new to these forums so I hope I put this post in the right spot. I have an application I'm developing using JDOM2. I read in an XML file, convert it to a scene graph, and then take that scene graph and write it out as a different XML document. My problem is, all of the things in the first document I don't' necessarily want in the output document. I want to essentially prune the tree that's created when I read in the first XML document and write out the remaining nodes to the output XML document. Right now what is going on is it is reading the XML document correctly, but outputting the document with the tags out of order and it is keeping the tags that I thought I removed from the first document.

    JDOM is an in-memory XML model that can be used to read, write, create and modify XML Documents. JDOM is designed only for Java and uses the natural Java-specific features that the DOM model avoids.

    Java is one of the most popular and widely used programming language and platform. A platform is an environment that helps to develop and run programs written in any programming language.
    Java is fast, reliable and secure. From desktop to web applications, scientific supercomputers to gaming consoles, cell phones to the Internet, Java is used in every nook and corner.

    JDOM parser can be used to read XML, parse xml and write XML file after updating content of it. It stores JDOM2 document in memory to read and modify it’s values.

    After loading XML document into memory, JDOM2 maintains a strict parent-child type relationship. Parent-type JDOM instances (Parent) have methods to access their content, and Child-type JDOM instances (Content) have methods to access their Parent.
