    problems with jboss an xerces

    Karol Oslowski Newbie

      Dear All!

      I'm writing a business method of an entity bean which is supposed to read some informations from an XML file. I use the following code:

      To get the parser and the document:

       DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
       DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
       Document doc = builder.parse( xmlFile );

      Then to get the informations I use:

      NodeList nl = doc.getElementsByTagName( tagName );
       int elemCount = nl.getLength();
       for( int i = 0; i < elemCount; i++ )
       Element element = ( Element )nl.item( i );
       String test = element.getTextContent();

      And I get the folowing exception:
      org.jboss.tm.JBossTransactionRolledbackException: Unexpected Error
      java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.w3c.dom.Node.getTextContent()Ljava/lang/String;

      The problem is that outside Jboss this works perfectly. So I guess the problems comes from the fact that jboss uses xerces itself and it configures diferently the parser or something like this...

      When I write :
       Text tester = (Text) elem.getFirstChild();
       String blalba = tester.getNodeValue();

      everything works well.... but still I would like to understand what is the couse of problems with the other solution.

      kind regards


      PS: I use jboss 4.0 and xerces 2.6.2
