reading values from xml

hi guys
I am reading  values from xml using

  DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
 Document document = db.parse(new File("customerPlaceholder.xml"));
NodeList nodeList = document.getElementsByTagName("Item");
  for(int x=0,size= nodeList.getLength(); x<size; x++) {
       System.out.println(nodeList.item(x).getAttributes().getNamedItem("name").getNodeValue());
 }

customerPlaceholder.xml has some information but nodeList.getLength(); is zero
any idea where i am doing wrong?

thanks

You see where your code is getting all the tags named "Item":
document.getElementsByTagName("Item");

Your xml file does not have any tags named "Item".  Presumably you mean to put "custmomer" as the name of the tag.

Can you post the XML that you are trying to read? It's a bit hard to help in any way unless we have this.

the xml is like

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<custmomer>
   <id> bk101 </id>
      <name>James, Matthew</name>
      <title>Production</title>
      <genre>Computer</genre>
      <price>44.95</price>
 </custmomer>

I want to read the values of id and name , genre and price.

thanks
