SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();
     try {
        File f = new File("\\\\bady\\SShare\\mart.xml");
        System.out.println(f.exists());   // Returns False
        System.out.println(f.length());   // Returns 0

        Document document = builder.build(f);  //IOException at this point
        Element root = document.getRootElement();
        Element paragraph = root.getChild("mart_element");
        String content = paragraph.getText();
        System.out.println("content = " + content);
        } catch (JDOMException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        } catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
Here mart.xml is a shortcut present in C:\Param\Bin on a windows box. I get the following IOException:

Exception in thread "main" java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect

        at JDOMElementTextContent.parseXml(JDOMElementTextContent.java:36)
        at JDOMElementTextContent.main(JDOMElementTextContent.java:47)
I tried to open Stream from URL using file: protocol but URLConnection.getInputStream throws the same connection refused exception.

Any recommendations would be appreciated?

you might want to pass the file location runtime through commandline arg or some config... so based on the platform you can give the location appropriately.

You might also try a URL as the parameter to the SAXBuilder

it sounds like \\bady\SShare is an unix share... you can't use this in windows unless it is mapped to win throw something like citrix...

you can convert the file to a url, but if its not finding the file then its not going to find the url either

> However i would be running this program from a unix machine eventually.

You won't get this problem then. This problem is specific to Windows.
I'd suggest accessing the file on one of the local drives (as ksivananth suggested above) for testing, far less troublesome.
