How to extract every Area between <tag Start> and < /tag end>

I need to filter every Area between < xsd:headerName > and < /xsd:headerName >. Since I write a code generator I can't define how often it is present because it can be different with every xml.

I just get null pointers when executing so what do I do wrong?

Without the list I get the first area but I need all of them separately.

Welcome to CodeRanch!

You fell into the classic trap of thinking you can process XML with simple string operations. Never treat XML as text. Use an XML library to process XML. The Java standard API contains an XML DOM API, or if you need something more advanced, you can use the SAX XML parser.
