Hi All,
I use Java 1.5 API. I tried to get the child elements of a xml document by using getChildNodes() method of Node interface. This method reurns a NodeList. The getLength() method of NodeList interface will return the number of child elements in that particular node.

I tried this functionality for same xml node in two different forms. Both the xml documents were part of well formed xml document.

Case 1 :

The Node is Transforms.
The Number of child elements is : 2

Case 2 :

The Node is Transforms. But there is space or new line character between each node.
The Number of child elements is : 5

Can someone throw light on why the behaviour of the getLength() and item(int index) method of the NodeList interface change for the same Node but in different forms.
