Create an Empty DOM Document


This Example shows how to create an empty DOM Document . JAXP (Java API for XML Processing) is an interface which provides parsing of xml documents. Here the Document BuilderFactory is used to create new DOM parsers. There are some of the methods used in code given below for creating an empty DOM Document :-

DocumentBuilderFactory builderFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance():- This method Creates a DocumentBuilder Factory .DocumentBuilder Factory is a Class that enables application to obtain parser for building DOM trees from XML Document

DocumentBuilder builder = Factory.newDocumentBuilder():- This method creates a DocumentBuilder object with the help of a DocumentBuilderFactory

Document doc = builder.newDocument():- This method obtain a new instance of a DOM Document object to build a DOM tree.

Element element=doc.getDocumentElement():- By this method we can have direct access to the root of the DOM Document.

  System.out.print("DOM Document created Successfully");

Output of the program:-

Value of the root of Dom Document created is: null
