Finding an ID Value and Print the Element Text 


This Example gives a way to Find an ID value and Print the Text in a DOM document . The Methods which are used for Finding an ID value in the code are described below :-

Element root = doc.getDocumentElement():-allows direct access to the root of the DOM Document.

Node node=root.getFirstChild().getFirstChild():-Direct access to the subchild of the root .

Text text = (Text) node.getFirstChild():- it Retrives the text of the Node named node

XML code for the program generated is:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<name Girish="Gi"></name>
<name Komal="Ko">newsTrack</name>    
<name Mahendra="Rose">Singh</name>
