Hi.
I have a xml tag like this:
<ot>54231
76541
89621</ot>
I can read this tag in to org.w3c.dom.Element e, and then convert it to a String using e.getTextContent().

But I can't figure out how to split this textContent into String[];
I use both windows and Solaris, so I need something that works on both platforms.

on 1.5 you can use String[] tmp = e.getTextContent().split("\n");

on previous versions you can use a StringTokenizer.

You could also try

StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(e.getTextContent());
String [] tokens = new String[st.countTokens()];
int counter = 0;
     while (st.hasMoreTokens()) {
         tokens[counter] = st.nextToken();
         counter++;
     }

String[] tmp = e.getTextContent().split("\\s*");

may be better if tabs or other whitespace are involved too
