Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Parsing a read-only XML file with JDOM, part of Android App Development: Local Data Storage (2013).
I've previously described how to parse XML files using the XML Pull Parser, a…streaming parser that's included with the Android SDK.…I'm now going to describe an alternative approach using a parser called JDOM.…JDOM is a third-party open-source, free solution that works well in both generic…Java applications and in Android apps.…You can download the binaries for JDOM, but I've included the JAR file.…That is the library that you need to include in your application in…the exercise files.…
I'll get out of the browser and I'll go to my Exercise Files folder.…Under the Assets folder, there's a subfolder called Software, and there's a…file there called jdom-2.0.3.jar.…You can use this or any later version.…I'll copy the JAR file to the clipboard. Then I'll go back to Eclipse.…Within Eclipse, I'll go to the libs folder of my new project, XMLJDOMParser.…I'll go to that libs folder and I'll paste the file into place.…
In addition to adding the JAR file to the libs folder, you can also explicitly…add the JAR file to the build path for the application, and that will ensure…
