I wonder if anyone can help.
I have written an application that communicates with a webservice over REST; reads the resultant string (which is the xml document) into an xml dom object, parses and processes it.
No problems; except its currently written in VB (using the MSXML class), and now I want to port it to Java.
I've written the code to make the http request to the webservice; and I get the result in a String object. Now I want to load it into the dom and process it.

I'm using IBM's XML4J.jar; and I have the following code:

Here's where I get stuck ! The only method I can find any reference to is parse() which appears to take a parameter of a filename, which then reads the contents of the file.
Not quite what I want ! I already have my xml in a String object, I just want to pass it into the parser.
In my VB code, at this point I use a method called loadXML and pass the string, but I cant find a similar object here !!

Any help with this would be very much appreciated !
