   Sun XML Lib

Has any one used the Sun XML library. My question is how to access the 
child nodes from the root. 
I have tried

....main(String args[]){
XmlDocument doc;
Element root = doc.getDocumentElement();
System.out.println("\nRoot: "+root.getTagName());
The first print statement prints the root element, but the second print 
statement prints #text which is not what I want. I want to print the 
node name.

Like for example in the XML file
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<line>Roses are red,</line>

The first print statement prints "poem"
The second print statement prints #text.
I want "line" to be printed.

And also how do I get the text inside the "line" tag.
This might be trivial question but I am just a beginner. So bear with 

Can anyone help.
