Converting CDATA Nodes into Text Nodes


This Example describes you the way to Convert CDATA Nodes to Text Nodes in a DOM document. JAXP (Java API for XML Processing) is an interface which provides parsing of xml documents. Here the Document BuilderFactory is used to create new DOM parsers.There are some of the methods used in code given below for Converting a CDATA node to Text node:-

DocumentBuilderFactory builderFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance():-This method Creates a DocumentBuilder Factory .DocumentBuilder Factory is a Class that enables application to obtain parser for building DOM trees from XML Document

dbf.setCoalescing(true):-This method specifies convert CDATA nodes to Text nodes.

TransformerFactory factory = TransformerFactory.newInstance():-TransformerFactory is a class that is used to create Transformer objects. A TransformerFactory instance can be used to create Transformer and Templates objects.

transformer.transform(source, result):-This function organize data according to a style sheet as we are retrieving it from the File.

Xml code for the program generated is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- Information About Employees -->
  <Employee Id="Rose-2345">
  <name>Girish Tewari</name>
 <!-- CDATA node -->
  <![CDATA[ <"!@#$%'^&*()> is in Rohini]]>

public class ConvertingCDATANodesTextNodes {
  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
  File f = new File("Cdata.xml");
  DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
  //Configure it to coalesce CDATA nodes
  DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
  Document doc = db.parse(f);
  new ConvertingCDATANodesTextNodes().CDATAtextnode(doc);
  public void CDATAtextnode(Document doc) throws Exception {
  TransformerFactory factory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
  Transformer transformer = factory.newTransformer();
  transformer.setOutputProperty(OutputKeys.INDENT, "yes");
  StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
  StreamResult result = new StreamResult(sw);
  DOMSource source = new DOMSource(doc);
  transformer.transform(source, result);
  String xmlfile = sw.toString();

Output of the program:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!-- Information About Employees -->
  <Employee Id="Rose-2345">
  <name>Girish Tewari</name>
 <!-- CDATA node -->
