Subject Re: [Configuration] - List of Size 1
Date Thu, 27 Jan 2005 15:15:46 GMT
In writing my test, it seems my interpretation of the problem is
incorrect.  Sorry.  What actually happens is that my elements are not
counted if they are empty.  Since getList is supposed to be the string
content of the element, this makes sense, I guess.

My configuration xml file is a lot like the log4j xml configuration
file: frequently, all the data is in the attributes of an element, and
there is content to the element.  Is there a way to get the number of
such elements, so that I can then loop and address each by index?
