DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance(); DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder(); Document doc = db.parse(f); Node mapNode = getMapNode(doc); System.out.print("\r\n elementName "+ mapNode.getNodeName());//This works fine. Element e = (Element) mapNode; //This is where the error occurs //it seems to work on my machine, but not on the server. e.setAttribute("objectId", "OBJ123");
But this throws a java.lang.ClassCastException error on the line that casts it to Element. mapNode is a valid node. I already have it printing out
I think maybe this code does not work in Java 1.4. What I really need is an alternative to using Element. I tried doing
NamedNodeMap atts = mapNode.getAttributes(); Attr att = doc.createAttribute("objId"); att.setValue(docId); atts.setNamedItem(att);
But getAttributes() returns null on the server. Even though its not and I am using the same document locally as on the server. And it can print out the getNodeName() its just that the getAttributes() does not work.
