 XML > XOM > Remove Child by Name

Remove Child by Name 

XOM (XML Object Model) is a tree based java API for processing XML by taking the best ideas from SAX and DOM. It is simple, fast and easy to use. This requires the library xom-1.2.7.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows removing a child element from parent by name.

File Name  :  
/XOM001/config/student_list.xml

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.xom.tests;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;

import nu.xom.Builder;
import nu.xom.Document;
import nu.xom.Element;
import nu.xom.Elements;
import nu.xom.ParsingException;
import nu.xom.ValidityException;

public class RemoveChildByName {

  /**
   @param args
   @throws IOException 
   @throws ParsingException 
   @throws ValidityException 
   */
  public static void main(String[] argsthrows ValidityException, ParsingException, IOException {
    Builder builder = new Builder();
    InputStream ins = RemoveChildByName.class.getClassLoader()
          .getResourceAsStream("student_list.xml");
    
    //Reads and parses the XML
    Document doc = builder.build(ins);

    //Get student list
    Elements students = doc.getRootElement().getChildElements();
    Element ageChild = null;
    
    for (int i = ; i < students.size() ; i ++) {
      
      //Get age element
      ageChild = students.get(i).getFirstChildElement("age");
      if (ageChild != null) {
        //Remove age element
        System.out.println(students.get(i).removeChild(ageChild));
      }
    }
    
    System.out.println(doc.toXML());
  }

}
   

It gives the following output,
