Hi friends,
I am trying to extract the contents of ODT files for indexing.
Let me elaborate.

The following are the steps i follow to extract the contents of the odt file:

Steps
1 - convert the odt file into a temporary zip file.
2 - loop thru the files inside and retrieve the 'content.xml' file.
3 - the actual content of the ODT file resides in an xml element called <text:p>
4 - index the contents retrieved from <text:p>


I am having trouble in step 3.
I do not have the content.xml's schema. Only with the schema, i can generate the respective java classes of the elements.

Pls guide me

And which part of your program are you having trouble with?

Sorry, but that really does not help anyone to guess what might be wrong. Take a look at this article[^] for guidance on reading XML data.

Hey friends,

I have found an alternative. I am using SAX instead of JAXB now. I already had this option, but i personally preferred JAXB owing to performance.

I am using JAXB to extract from the 'content.xml' file in the odt. I am unable to get the XML Schema of the content.xml file. I tried generating it from the xml using hitsw site. But it doesn't work.
