( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am trying to perform a normal query into an XML document where something has been declared about the default namespace. If the xmlns="..." part of the data is removed then this test succeeds. What needs to change in my XPath query //lastName or XML::LibXML parser object so that this query will succeed?

use Test::More tests => 2; use XML::LibXML (); { my $xml = <<'XML'; <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?> <sdnList> <sdnEntry> <lastName>Hello world!</lastName> </sdnEntry> </sdnList> XML my $parser = XML::LibXML->new; my $doc = $parser->parse_string($xml); my $result = $doc->findvalue('//lastName'); is( $result, "Hello world!", "No namespace" ); } { my $xml = <<'XML'; <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?> <sdnList xmlns=""> <sdnEntry> <lastName>Hello world!</lastName> </sdnEntry> </sdnList> XML my $parser = XML::LibXML->new; my $doc = $parser->parse_string($xml); my $result = $doc->findvalue('//lastName'); is( $result, "Hello world!", "Namespace" ); }


1..2 ok 1 - No namespace not ok 2 - Namespace # Failed test 'Namespace' # in at line 30. # got: '' # expected: 'Hello world!' # Looks like you failed 1 test of 2.
