Hello,

My application uses DOM to convert from java object to XML. While doing this, it is adding a tag by name <#document-fragment> at the start and a correspoding closing tag.
The actual information is contained within the above mentioned tag.

There is no hard coding in the source files. This gets appended automatically. Do NOT know how.

I would like to know if anyone had faced such issue and how was it resolved.

Thanking in advance,
- Jay.

You're probably using the getNodeName() or getNodeValue() methods in some odd way. Could you post the piece of code that does the conversion?

Find below pasted the INCORRECT xml file

<?xml version = '1.0'?>
<#document-fragment><JavaBean CLASS="iom.decomp.data.task.EFMSPMTaskData"><Prope
rties><Property NAME="asr"><JavaBean CLASS="java.util.Vector"><Properties/></Jav
aBean></Property><Property NAME="asrSize">0</Property><Property NAME="eventSched
Date">01/26/2005</Property><Property NAME="eventType">CTP8</Property><Property N
AME="orderNumber">040203509</Property><Property NAME="sdiSize">0</Property><Prop
erty NAME="shopCartNumber">ISR04122029620</Property></Properties></JavaBean>
</#document-fragment>

and the code is as below,

public static DocumentFragment getAsDOM(Document doc, ArrayList arrayList) throws IntrospectionException, InstantiationException,
IllegalAccessException {

// Create the fragment we'll return
DocumentFragment dfResult = null;

// Analyze the ArrayList
Class classOfArrayList = arrayList.getClass();

if (dfResult == null) {
dfResult = doc.createDocumentFragment();
//BeanInfo bi = Introspector.getBeanInfo(classOfBean);
//PropertyDescriptor[] pds = bi.getPropertyDescriptors();

// Add an Element indicating that this is a JavaBean.
// The element has a single attribute, which is that Element's class.
Element eBean = doc.createElement("JavaBean");
dfResult.appendChild(eBean);
eBean.setAttribute("CLASS", classOfArrayList.getName());
Element eProperties = doc.createElement("Properties");
eBean.appendChild(eProperties);

if(arrayList == null || arrayList.size()<1){
return dfResult;
}

for(int k =0; k < arrayList.size(); k++){
Object bean = arrayList.get(k);
DocumentFragment dfragment = XMLBeanWriter.getAsDOM(doc, bean);
if(dfragment != null){
Element eProperty = doc.createElement("Property");
eProperties.appendChild(eProperty);

// Create NAME attribute, add it to Property element,
// and set it to name of property
eProperty.setAttribute("NAME", "ArrayListElement");

// Append the DocumentFragment to the Property element
eProperty.appendChild(dfragment);
}
}

}
return dfResult;
}



The correct xml file is as given below,

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<JavaBean CLASS="iom.decomp.data.task.EFMSPMTaskData"><Properties><Property NAME
="asr"><JavaBean CLASS="java.util.Vector"><Properties/></JavaBean></Property><Pr
operty NAME="asrSize">0</Property><Property NAME="eventSchedDate">10/25/2004</Pr
operty><Property NAME="eventType">REJ</Property><Property NAME="orderNumber">040
202443</Property><Property NAME="orderStatus">Rejected</Property><Property NAME=
"sdiSize">0</Property><Property NAME="serviceRequestNumber">040202443</Property>
<Property NAME="shopCartNumber">ISR04102227829</Property></Properties>
</JavaBean>


The tag <#document-fragment> shouldn't have got appended at all.

Please help,

Thanks for your time,
-Jay.

The problem is apparently that you can't print a DocumentFragment node the same way as you can print a Document node. Is there any particular reason why you couldn't just create a new Document (instead of using DocumentFragments)?

Another option could be to "convert" the DocumentFragment into a regular Document before printing, i.e. something like this:
