Hi,
I am having a problem when I try to run Java program which parses
a XML file.
I am using JAXP for parsing XML file.
It compiles it well, but when I try to run I get error:
Parsing error: File "C:\...\test.xml" not found.
Can anybody tell what is wrong here.
Thanks.

Obviously, something is wrong with the way you pass the location of the file to the parser. I prefer to do something like:
File f = new File( path, filename );
if( !( f.exists() && f.canRead() ){
System.out.println("Can't read: " + f.getAbsolutePath() );
return;
}
