[jdom-interest] Parsing an XML Schema

The problem is that a schema does not define a "root" element , and that's the main point for me, because I need to work on the file (xml schema or dtd) as a tree structure, it means the parsing must start by the root element and then the chidren of the current element (from left to right -> prefix). So how can I do that ?


?? A DTD, although it is part of an XML file, is not, in itself, an XML 
file, i.e. it's information-set, according to XML, is empty... or do I 
mistake ??
Normal SAX parsers (Xerces, AElfred, Crimson...) parse the DTD when 
parsing the xml file that references it but do not deliver any
 info from it. Xerces has some interfaces within XNI (but this is mostly 
xml-schema oriented).

I think what you need is DTDparser... does a good job!
