Hello again guys,

Thanks to all of you for the great ideas.
By using combination of the bits of ideas you all supplied
I have been able to achieve the goal
I combine the suggestions of both Mike and grzegorz;
here is the code snip I used:

 List checkDomain = document.getRootElement().getChildren();
        for (int i = 0; i < checkDomain.size(); i++) {
            Element next = (Element)checkDomain.get(i);
             domainName= next.getAttribute("domain").getValue();

         if (domainName.equals(user_enteredValue)){
            System.out.println("Found domain")

   // when the last value is checked and nothing found       
          System.out.println("The domain does not exists");  
  Once again thanks to all of you! and to all jdom group!

No :).boolean found = falsefor (...)  {  if ("domain".equals(...)) {     ...     found = true;     break;  }}So not found will be displayed once.But better use Michael's way, it is ok.String value = element.getAtttibute("domain");if (value == null || (!value.equals(dom.trim()))) display "not found"Regards,Grzegorz2008/1/22, Bashiro <bashiro at myway.com>:>>> Thanks,>> Theoriticaly yes, but practically no!> When boolean is false, that is when the value of an attribute is not found,> jdom displays as many "not founds" as the number of contens in the xml.>> I am beguining to think if I should combine HashMap so that Hashmap will check before passing it on to the jdom code.> I thought jdom could do this easier....>> Bashiro> Drammen-Norway>>>>>  --- On Tue 01/22, Grzegorz Kaczor < grzegorz.kaczor at gmail.com > wrote:> From: Grzegorz Kaczor [mailto: grzegorz.kaczor at gmail.com]> To: bashiro at myway.com>      Cc: jdom-interest at jdom.org> Date: Tue, 22 Jan 2008 20:33:37 +0100> Subject: Re:
