hi all can you use jdom to return xml in this format


<parent id="" title="" type="">
  <child1>xxxxxx</child1>
  <child2>xxxxxx</child2>
  <child3>xxxxxx</child3>
</parent>


I have jdom working if i want them all as attributes e.g.or all as tags but not a mixture of both

many thanks

Ya you can do that, try this code,
you will get your XML


<parent id="id" title="title" type="type">
  <child1>xxxxxx</child1>
  <child2>xxxxxx</child2>
</parent>


Document doc = new Document () ;
Element root = new Element ( "Parent" ) ;
            
doc.addContent( root ) ;
            
root.setAttribute( "ID","id") ;
root.setAttribute( "Type","type") ;
root.setAttribute( "Title","title") ;
            
Element child1 = new Element ( "Child1" ) ;
child1.addContent( "XXXXX" ) ;
      
Element child2 = new Element ( "Child1" ) ;
child2.addContent( "XXXXX" ) ;

Element root = new Element ( "Parent" ) ;
  root.setAttribute( "ID","id") ;
  root.setAttribute( "Type","type") ;
  root.setAttribute( "Title","title") ;
 Document doc = new Document (root);
 Element child1 = new Element ( "child1" ) ;
child1.addContent( "XXXXX" ) ;
 doc.getRootElement().getChildren().add(child1);
Element child2 = new Element ( "child2" ) ;
child2.addContent( "XXXXX" ) ;
 doc.getRootElement().getChildren().add(child2);
//XMLOutputter out = new XMLOutputter();
 //out.setFormat(Format.getRawFormat().setOmitEncoding(true));
 //System.out.println(out.outputString(doc));

I've sorrted this using a method like this

    public void setAsAttribute(String columnName, String attribName)
    {
        String name = columnName.toLowerCase();
       
        attributes.put(name, "t");
       
        newNames.put(name, attribName);
    }

in my jdom class
