good morning,
I have this xml file that I need to access the Text "Dish."  I have
listed what  quit works and does not work.  Please see attached file.

<CatParameters xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance
<http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance> ">
        <InputValue Name="Food">
            <Get Name="Tom">WHITE</Get>
            <Get Name="Jerry">BLACK</Get>
            <Get Name="Sam">GREY</Get>

descendant_2 = Where
secondDescendant_1 = On
descendant_3 = Get
attributeValue = Name

With this syntax, I am able to get at Dish, but that is because an
attribute is not associated with
the element On.
String secondDescendant1Data =
System.out.print("\n secondDescendant1 Text: " +
secondDescendant1Data);// child's descendant2 Where Dish

I get WHITE with this, but I do not have an API/library component ti get
to the next element  BLACK.
String secondDescendant3Data =
subParentElement.getChild(descendant_3).getValue();//This works!

I get Tom with this syntax;
String secondDescendant3Data =

With this syntax I get the actual attribute: Name;
String secondDescendant3Data =

I need syntax like this, but there is none;
String secondDescendant3Data =
).getText(of Tom);

But there isn't an API method that works!
Might you be able to suggest a solution?


Thank you.  I would appreciate your comments.
