Thanks for your response Simon.

The program is already mostly working with dummy data. In my previous post I
mentioned I needed three things. All three come from the xml, one I am
already getting (using digester). The other 2 I have been hard coding.
Requirements have changed and now I need the actual data.

My previous email didn't make sense because I don't fully understand how
digester works or how to best use it. All I know if there is data I need
from the schema I posted and I don't want to have to use SAX or DOM to get
it. :-)

I think with some further reading and practice I should be able to figure
this out.

I hope I haven't frustrated anyone with confusing posts.
