Happy user of JDOM Beta7 & about to upgrade to Beta 8.
One of the reasons I want / need to do this (because B7 works fine for
me) is a requirement to be able to spit out an XPATH log record of an
element which has caused /could cause a problem (with the values inside
it) e.g. at the mo we're using it in conjuction with XMLDBMS to shove
records into a DB where the field value lengths need to be checked
against the DB field length (e.g. inserting "Great Britain" into a
varchar(8) column is going to throw an error so check before trying the
Are there any /where do I find the docs wrt spitting out the xpath to
the current element. i.e. imagine my code is working it's way down
through a JDOM tree checking the element /attibute values & it comes
across one which ain't right. I have the element so how do I get the
XPath to that element out as a string for putting into a log?
Are there any docs about setting up JDOMb8 with any ancillary jars
(jaxen?) in order to get it to run ?
Lastly...... is XPath part of the main JDOM code yet or is it an
"experimental fork" which is going to be brought into the main body of
the code once everyone's happy with it? If so when will / is it
scheduled for that to occur?
