Subject JSTL XML Basic Question
Date Sat, 20 Apr 2013 18:14:21 GMT
I have been searching for several hours for a basic JSTL answer with no
luck.  From what I can tell, JSTL is under the umbrella of Tomcat.
Hopefully someone can help me out.

I simply want to use an existing already-parsed DOM (org.w3c.dom.Document
variable) with JSTL XML tags.  In other words, I want to skip the x:parse
step and just tell x:out and all of the other x tags to pull data from my
pre-existing pre-parsed DOM:

       Document myDOM;  // already built by another part of the code

I understand basic xpath stuff.  But I'm not sure how to tell it to use a
standard local java variable for the DOM.

I've tried   <x:out select="$myDOM/aaaaa/bbbbb"/>  and <x:out
select="${myDOM}/aaaaa/bbbbb"/>

Both give me errors that seem to say it doesn't find a DOM.

Every example I can find always assumes I want to start with a true
non-parsed XML document.

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious.  But can someone please help me out
with the correct syntax?

Thanks.

Jerry
