Hi all,

When i am adding some new nodes to an existing xml element everything seems fine but new document does not contain entity reference node.Can anybody tell me please why I loose entity reference although i dont make any processing with it ? Do i need to set some attribute not to loose it ?

here is my code;

doc = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance().newDocumentBuilder().parse("myxml.xml");

XPath xpath = XPathFactory.newInstance().newXPath();
NodeList nodes = (NodeList)xpath.evaluate("//A/B[@name='C']", doc, XPathConstants.NODESET);

Element entry = doc.createElement("entry");
Attr valueAttribute = doc.createAttribute("value");
valueAttribute.setValue("newnode");

// append attribute
entry.setAttributeNode(valueAttribute);
nodes.item(0).appendChild(entry);
// save the result
Transformer xformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
xformer.transform(new DOMSource(doc), new StreamResult("myxml.xml"));

Thank you.
