Subject RE: * in XPath predicate
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2003 16:12:10 GMT
Maybe try the count() function as in -- this should give you all employees that have at least
one role child element.

<x:forEach select="$doc//employee[count(role)]" >

Subject: Fw: * in XPath predicate

Good morning all,

I am trying to generate my xpath statement based on parameters, and I find that it works perfectly
with the exception that the * in the predicate fails when dynamically populated, although
it works fine when hardcoded.   

So this will work:
<x:forEach select="$doc//employee[role=*]" >

But this will not: 

<c:set var="roleName" value="*" />
<x:forEach select="$doc//employee[role=$roleName]" >

I'm guessing that the * gets tick marks ( ' ) when it is processed.    Any thoughts?
