Hi Experts,

I have an XML as follows:

<employee>
<emp>
      <name dptid=1>xyz</name>
      <design>manager</design>
      <sal>20000</sal>
 </emp>
<emp>
      <name dptid=2>abc</name>
      <design>engineer</design>
      <sal>10000</sal>
 </emp>
<emp>
      <name dptid=1>def</name>
      <design>engineer</design>
      <sal>12000</sal>
 </emp>
</employee>

I am using xerces DOMParser with XPath in Java to fetch the nodes.

Now, I want to fetch all the “emp” nodes where the ‘dptid=1’ in the node ‘name’. Could you help me to write the expression in XPath to achieve this?

Thanks & Regards
Vijay T. Prabakar
