Hello everybody

I am trying to find an XML parsing tool that allows to parse documents which contain elements with no consistent names. e.g

<root>
    <child1 name="name1" />
    <child2 name="name2" />
</root>

As you see child element is not consistent. I tried to use XStream but it doesn't work for me because it stores aliases in a map together with the values which are class names.

xstream.alias("child", Child.class);

I am looking for something that would allow me to give Regular Expressions as aliases.

Any help with some example or something?

Thank you in advance
