Getting XML element's name

Hi,

Getting a node like this:

    // Get child node.
    Node childNode = list.item(i);

How do you get the name of the element? For example:

    <furniture>chair</furniture>

I want to get the element name 'furniture'.

Thanks

you're just interested in Element's so it would be something like:

if (childNode instanceof Element)


thers also a getNodeType() method for getting the type of the Node
The Node javadoc covers the different types

String name = childNode.getNodeName();
