At that time, I was also collaborating with another development shop that was using the JDOM parser too, so maybe that influenced my decision too. For creation of the source code I have used Eclipse 4.

At last but not least you should aleays keep an eye on the slogan: GitHub The sources for this example can be checked out from: Java Ecosystem Infographic by JetBrains. Develop the Delivery You Want. In the following example you can see the differences in the syntax of the parsers for tutorixl case.

How to read XML file in Java – (JDOM Parser)

Over a million developers have joined DZone. If you don’t do this you will get empty data without any warning and confusion of the programmer is inevitable. As you can see the DOM needs one more coding step for this operation. The DOM parsing method, also known jsom DOM, is the reference implementation of the W3C parser and the first implementation with this kind of processing for Java, but it’s not the only one, and it’s not the best one.


The Java-class where the XML parsers are used is called the client class. If you have this kind of case that you need to use the methods where the namespace is needed as parameter. Writing this article, creating the code for it and doing the tests I have also learned new stuff about the parsers: Follownig Exceptions have to be catched: Microservices for Java Developers: Different techniques for handling the namespaces as mentioned above.

How you can do this is shown in the following code: Doing this, I noticed differences in the syntax of the parsers, which was one of the reasons why I rewrote the code. One term that I want to mention here, which can be found in many tutorials, is the client class. That was several years ago, and I cannot remember which forums they were, otherwise I would have posted the links here. This term is also used when using other kinds of processing libraries like the JSON parsers or other factory pattern like builder.

Learn more about Kotlin. The API for Software: Join the DZone community and get the full member experience. If you have projects which are already using DOM then there is no need to refactor them only because of the syntax.


Opinions expressed by DZone contributors are their own. Somethimes the XML files are using explicit defined namespace or many namspaces at once. When I was searching for other parsers, I found some information about them in different forums.

Read XML in Java using JDom Parser – Memorynotfound

Enterprise Implementation in Java. I have also searched links about performance comparison but haven’t found any good one. The sources for this example can be checked out from: At the of the processing we need jdm send our new document for further processing or persistence out of the client class.

That’s the reason why other parsers were implemented using this kind of parsing method.

Read XML in Java using JDom Parser

As you can see the JDOM2 syntax is shorter for using the same functionality. JDOM2 has shorter syntax. Use the java-and-xml folder and start the test method of the TestJavaXml. How you can do this is shown in the following tutorkal. Insight Into a Hybrid Approach. As return value a list of XML nodes will be expected.

Somethimes we need to restructure or filter given XML files. Iterating trough the nodes can be also implemented recursively by both libraries.
