Hi,

I have an xml like this:

<bk:bookstore xmlns:bk="urn:xmlns:25hoursaday-com:bookstore">
<bk:book>
<bk:title>Lord of the Rings</bk:title>
<bk:author>J.R.R. Tolkien</bk:author>
<inv:inventory status="in-stock" isbn="0345340426"
xmlns:inv="urn:xmlns:25hoursaday-com:inventory-tracking" />
</bk:book>
</bk:bookstore>


How to read the values of the above elements using xPath? I could read regular nodes that have no namespaces. But as the above example
has namespances, xpath is not working when it encounters ":". Is there a way around to read this kind of xmlfile using xpath or JDOM?

Thanks
Radha.

hmmmm....the name space seems weird. So far I have only worked with URL's not URN's in the name space. Need to look it up....Later!
