  Subject: [jdom-interest] namespacing and SAXBuilder

  I have an xml document that uses namespacing, but an having problems referencing elements in the DOM.  I am wondering if I have to declare anywhere that the thing should be NameSpace Aware or anything...?  I keep getting a NullPointerException when I try to reference the element's list of attributes thusly:

  Element process = ((Element)childs.get(0)).getChild("Process");
    List proAts = process.getAttributes();
    int numProats = proAts.size();

  The corresponding xml tag is <boo:Process id="1">

  I have tried changing the getChild call to getChild("boo:Process"), on the off chance that that might work, but no luck so far.  could someone give me a hand here?
