public class DOMXPath
extends BaseXPath

An XPath implementation for the W3C DOM.

This is the main entry point for matching an XPath against a DOM tree. You create a compiled XPath object, then match it against one or more context nodes using the BaseXPath.selectNodes(Object) method, as in the following example:

 XPath path = new DOMXPath("a/b/c");
 List results = path.selectNodes(domNode);
