I am running into a problem using the lotus
XSL XPath implementation on IBM XML4J2_0_15.
I have an rmi service which basically
takes and XPath string ( query string ), runs it across a persisted DOM object,
which is retrieved from the object database, and returns a
document fragment back. The problem i am running into is creating a new document
object of which the root element is the document fragment. I am trying to append
to this root node, the nodes obtained from the XPath query. Unfortunately the
implementation of IBM parsers is that it compares the nodes
owner document with that of the element under which i need to insert the nodes.
If the owner document are not the same, as it is my case, it will not allow you
to append a child.
Is this a DOM thingie or is it at an IBM implementation
Does any one have a way to work around this problem without
cloning the document, which can be fairly large, and then
creating a document fragment which has the Node
list embedded within it.
Is there a better implementation than
that IBM parser, with source code ;-) which has
the following features
- XPath integration
- XML TreeDiff to find out
the difference between two dom documents and then merging the
Has any one implemented DOM with copy constructors for the
node impl etc objects ( I know its a C++ feature
but it makes life much simpler ;-) )
-- Java 1.2 implementation
- Need the entire source code in java
