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

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

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.
