I am using the xerces DOMParser with Java.  I want to be able to take the top level node from one document
and append or insert it into a Node on a second, different Document.  When I try to simply call appendChild I get an exception that says "Wrong Document".  Is there a simply way of doing this?

Here is a code snippet I have removed all the unnecessary stuff such as exception handling

// missing navigate parent document to correct node set to parentNode

InputSource xmlSource = new InputSource(new StringReader(xmlStr));

DOMParser strParser = new DOMParser();          

Document newXMLDoc = strParser.parse(xmlSource);

Node nodeToBeInserted = newXMLDoc.getFirstChild();
                         
parentNode.appendChild( nodeToBeInserted);

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

  Are you sure you are using the latest Java XML APIs?

P.S. I think the moderators should add a "quote" function for replies. It would be quite handy.
