Hi,

I am trying to get the first namespace value (URI) of the root element:
xmlns="http://rep.oio.dk/ubl/xml/schemas/0p71/testpie/"

The XML document starts with:



I wish to print out the value "http://rep.oio.dk/ubl/xml/schemas/0p71/testpie/", but my code below returns null:



Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Well, first of all, is your parser namespace-aware? By default parsers created by DocumentBuilderFactory (which it looks like you are using that) are not namespace-aware. Check the methods of DocumentBuilderFactory.

Then once you have taken care of that, the method you're looking for is getNamespaceURI().
