Replacing a Node with a New One

     

This Example shows you how to Replace a node with existing node in a 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. These are some of the methods used in code given below for adding attribute:-

root.getFirstChild().getFirstChild().getNodeName():-Access the subchild name of the root.

Node schild = fchild.getNextSibling():-it returns the node immediately following the node fchild.

root.replaceChild(schild, fchild):-This method replaces a child node with another.

Xml code for the program generated is:-

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

  public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
  DocumentBuilderFactory factory = 
  DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

  Document doc = factory.newDocumentBuilder().parse(
  
new File("Document4.xml"));
  new Replacenode().replacePerson(doc);
  }

  public void replacePerson(Document doc) {

  Element root = doc.getDocumentElement();

  System.out.println("Node before replacing is :" +
  root.getFirstChild().getFirstChild().getNodeName());

  Node fchild = root.getFirstChild();
  //finds the next child of the fchild
  Node schild = fchild.getNextSibling();
  
  //Replaces the fchild with schild  
  root.replaceChild(schild, fchild);

  System.out.println("Node after replacing name is:" +
  root.getFirstChild().getNodeName());

  }
}


Output of the program:-

Node before replacing is :Companyname
Node after replacing name is:Id
