Edit Text by Insertion and Replacement


This Example describes a method to insert and replace the Text in a DOM document. Methods which are used for insertion and replacement of the text in the DOM Document are described below :-

Element root = doc.getDocumentElement():- Allows direct access to the root of the DOM document.

Element place = (Element) root.getFirstChild():- Retrives the first child of the root.

Text name = (Text) place.getFirstChild().getFirstChild():- Creates a text node and access the subchild of the node named place in it.

name.insertData(14, " Rohini "):- This is a method to insert data in the text node. Here "Rohini " is the string to insert and 14 specifies where to begin inserting characters.

directions.replaceData(13, 6, " Employee Roseindia"):- This is a method to replace data in the text node. here 13 specifies value to begin replacing characters. 6 specifies number of characters to replace. Employee Roseindia specifies the string to insert.

XML code for the program generated is:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Companyname>Roseindia .Net</Companyname>        
<Employee>Girish Tewari</Employee>

  public void EditText(Document doc) {
  int count;
  int offset;

  Element root = doc.getDocumentElement();
  Element place = (Element) root.getFirstChild();
  Text name = (Text) place.getFirstChild().getFirstChild();
  Text directions = (Text) place.getLastChild().getFirstChild();
  System.out.println("Name before editing is: " 
   + name.getData());

  System.out.println("Direction before editing is: "
+ directions.getData());

  //Inserting text  
  name.insertData(14" Rohini ");
  System.out.println("Name after editing is: " + name.getData());

  //Replacing text
  directions.replaceData(136" Employee Roseindia");
  System.out.println("Direction after editing is: " 
  + directions.getData());


Output of the program:-

Name before editing is: Roseindia .Net
Direction before editing is: Girish Tewari
Name after editing is: Roseindia .Net Rohini 
Direction after editing is: Girish Tewari Employee Roseindia
