I need to implement my own org.w3c.dom.Element class that later on is used as a node in a org.w3c.dom.Document instance.
My own element class essentially implements the required interface and everything works fine, at least in a Java standard edition.

Running it on a micro edition (v 8) I do see some unexpected behaviour. I get a class cast exception.

- com/sun/ukit/dom/XParent.appendChild(), bci=21

Looking for the code I found the following on [1]

public Node appendChild(Node newChild)
throws DOMException
if (_isRO())
throw new DOMException(DOMException.NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR, "");

XNode nchild = (XNode)newChild;
if (newChild.getNodeType() != DOCUMENT_FRAGMENT_NODE) {
// Append a new child node.
} else {
// Recursive call to appendChild for each child of doc fragment
while (nchild.getLength() > 0)
return nchild;

It looks like each newChild node gets casted to XNode. First of all I wonder why and second I would like to know how I can now write my own Node classes. I cannot simply extend XNode given that it seems internal somehow.

Any ideas? Thank you very much for every hint,

I didn't like the taste of tongue and it didn't like the taste of me. I will now try this tiny ad:
Why should you try IntelliJ IDEA ?
