I need to recieve a xml file to use in another application, as the XML inputSource to build DOM tree.
So I'm calling to a java servlet using http protocol and that servlet will process the xml file. From that end I can use it as the source.
Pls tell me can this be done? If so pls help with some coding.

Hi,

As I see from the javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder API, you can use InputStream directly. Your code would be (exception handling omitted):

URL servlet = new URL("http://your.servlet.server/servlet/path");

DocumentBuilder builder = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().newDocumentBuilder();

Document dom = builder.parse(servler.openConnection());
