java parsing xml dom4j dom

Dom4j: Dom SUN dom At loading time , Load all elements into memory DOM4j - The third party .

Dom4j It's open source 、 agile XML API. At present, many open source frameworks such as struts,hibernate All use dom4j As an analysis of its xml Tools for . Support document reading and writing function and Xpath Quick query operation .

This requires us to import its package into myeclipse Medium . Get ready DOM4j: package :dom4j.x.jar Package structure : org.dom4j class – xml Document parser org.dom4j.Document、Element – Document object Need to know Element Some of the ways Element.element(“name”) – The first one under this element name Elements . Element.elementIterator(“name”) – All... Under this element name Elements . return Iterator Element.getText() – Returns the text contained in the element . Element.getAttribute(“name”) – The return name is name Properties of . Element.addElement(“name”); - Add one name Elements , At the same time return to name The element itself . – take Document The object of writing .

DOM4J The hierarchy of :

Use UTF-8 code , Solve the Chinese garbled code :

// Declaration encoding format
OutputFormat format = OutputFormat.createPrettyPrint();
// preservation (XMLWriter By default, it uses UTF-8 code . therefore , If you use OutputStream preservation , And it happens to be UTF-8 code , You don't have to worry about garbled code )
XMLWriter xml = new XMLWriter(new FileOutputStream("./src/xml/a.xml"),format);

Dom4j- Save node - Deal with Chinese code :

 stay JavaIO in ,writer Always process data in local encoding format . namely GB2312
all , Use writer There may be some problems with writing out the data , If not completely preserved , Or random code :
XMLWriter writer = new XMLWriter(new FileWriter(“a.xml”));
// Writing data
therefore , It is suggested that when writing data , Use OutputStream Save the data .

remember : When deleting a node , To delete it with its parent node .

Methods to add or modify properties :addAttribute

Dom4j- From no to no generation of a new xml:

// adopt DocumentHelper Create a... In memory Document
Document doc = DocumentHelper.createDocument();
doc.setXMLEncoding(“UTF-8”);//XML The encoding format of
// Generate a node , The first node generated is also the root node , This method is used only once
Element root = doc.addElement(“users”);


XML PATH Language.
Can achieve fast query .
XPATH contain
XPath Using path expressions in XML Navigation in the document .
XPath Contains a library of standard functions
Get ready Xpath My bag :
Xpath Use... In the following ways
dom.selectNodes – Return to one List Antithetic image
dom.selectSingleNode – Return to one Node Antithetic image
// Select all below user node , Here's the rule for dealing with security without a namespace
List<Element> list = doc.selectNodes("//user");
// Choose all of the following name node
list = doc.selectNodes("//name");// Or start with :/users//name
// The following choices are with country Attribute's node
list = doc.selectNodes("//user[@country]");
// Choosing a country is EN The node of , You can use the following methods to query user login
// If country If it can't be repeated, it can be used selectSingleNode
// You can use either double quotation marks or single quotation marks ://user
Node node = doc.selectSingleNode("//user[@country=\"EN\"]");
Xpath By querying the value of the child element , The difference between the main elements :
Such as :XML The documents are as follows :
<book id=“A001”>
<name>Oracle Programming based </name>
The query contains Oracle All of the word book Elements .
//book[name=‘Oracle’] // Query child elements exactly name The value of is Oracle Of book Elements
// Here's a fuzzy query
// Can also be name The value of the element is lowercase

A little bit about this : Xpath Dealing with XML file :

SAXReader sax = new SAXReader();
// Make a statement map Used to save the namespace
Map<String,String> uris = new HashMap<String, String>();
// Give the namespace an alias
uris.put("a", "");
// Set the namespace before reading xml file
Document dom ="./xml2/a.xml");
// Then use the prefix with the namespace to query .
// The query with attributes is the same as before
// Queries with elements must be prefixed with a namespace
dom.seletNodes(“//a:book[a:name=‘oralce’]”); // The value of the query sub element is oracle Of book Elements 

SAX,StAX Fast reading speed . All are JAXP Members of . StAX-Iterator Programming interface and Cursor Programming interface (API) . Dom4j.Dom. All nodes are loaded into memory .CRUD Very convenient . Dom4j Support XPath.
