Hello,

I'm writing this web service client that gets me the response wrapped in a SOAP Envelope as follows:

<env:Envelope xmlns:env="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<env:Header>
</env:Header>
<env:Body>
<employee xmlns="http://something.someone.com">
<employee_name>Srinvias</employee_name>
<emp_no>484020</emp_no>
</employee>
</env:Body>
</env:Envelope>

The mentioned SOAP request comes in as String.

Can Someone please help me how do I 'extract' the employee xml as a string or Document?

All that I'm interested is:

<employee xmlns="http://something.someone.com">
<employee_name>Srinvias</employee_name>
<emp_no>484020</emp_no>
</employee>


Please help me... I really need this soon...


Thanks,
SriPos.

SOAP is XML - any XML parser will do. Both DOM and SAX can parse XML from a Reader. The classes that help with this are java.io.StringReader and org.xml.sax.InputSource.

Well, if you have a DOM Document, you can use it to find the "Body" element, and then copy its first (or all) child elements.

Hi, From <env:Body> get all child tags which are the data you need.

I have the XML passed as a String to my web method, then I use JAXB to unmarshall it into the appropriate Java class. If you've got a schema defined (and it appears you do), then there shouldn't be any reason to write any parser code. Just use JAXB to generate the classes from your schema and let JAXB do the work.

At least, that's what *I* do....
