    Your XML file didn't save. Can you please post, inline, a snip of the file?

        Looking at this, I didn't see anything obviously wrong so I pulled it into my workspace. I tweaked the readText.xml file to what I have pasted below (essentially just stripping out the parts that shouldn't impact the read) and ran it against the snip you included in the previous post. When I ran that, the job ran fine (no exceptions). If you have a unit test that I can recreate the error with, I'd be more than happy to take a second look.

          Hi minella,

          when i run it through commandline jobrunner.. no exception , no output but
          when i run the same through class containg main method i am getting exception mentioned above

          application context xml that i am importing Attachment
          Here my class with main method

            Two things:
            1. Please use formatting when posting code. It makes it much easier to read and copy.
            2. I know you're not going to like this, but I pulled in the main class you posted above, pointed it at the job definition I posted above…and it worked without error (I just ran it as a java application from STS).
            If you have a unit test that I can try that consistently recreates the error, I'd be more than happy to give it another try.

              Thanks minella..

              I deleted everything and started from scratch to read from xml now its working, sad thing is i didnt get what was the actual problem.

              Hi have a doubt, Is it possible to read the complex xml using staxEventItemreader..?
              when i tried to read complex xml i am getting null value and in google i found many people saying
              staxEventItemreader cant be used for complex xml so we need to go for custom reader..

              Thanks in advance

                The StaxEventItemReader can read any XML I've ever tried to read with it. You may need to use advanced configurations to get everything mapped correctly, but I am unaware of a scenario that it would be unable to handle. Is there a particular scenario that you are concerned with?

                  I am happy to hear that. Here is my xml

                  • #10
                    Have you configured your unmarshaller for the various mappings needed (for example, mapping the aim tag to a particular class)?


                    • #11
                      Yes, I have mapped tags to the respective classes.
                      I have problem in
                      1.Mapping tag which contains attribute and value..for e.g
                      <aid IdScope="Sender">20110421000008</aid >
                      Here how to read IdScope attribute and its value.If it was <IdScope>sender<IdScope> i could map to IdScope class and may get it.(i cant change format of the xml..)
                      2.I am getting duplicate entry exception for following as unstructAddressLine tag is repeated.
                      <UnstructAddressLine>kabban park street</UnstructAddressLine>
                      <UnstructAddressLine>shivaji nagar</UnstructAddressLine>

                      please help me to resolve these things.

                      Thanks in advance
