The class first needs to be instantiated using the new Instance() method. A call to new Document Builder() then provides a Note that despite the ability to query the validation feature, there is currently no validating parser available.The reason I need validation for is to ignore whitespaces in the XML file (blanks, carriage returns, line feeds, etc.).Thats how I want to parse the document: Document Builder Factory dbfac = Document Builder Instance(); Validating(true); Ignoring Element Content Whitespace(true); Document Builder doc Builder; doc Builder = Document Builder(); Document d = doc Builder.parse(file); I just found a post on google-code that indicates that XML validation is not implemented: link This post is 1,5 years old and I don't know if something has changed already.Specifies that the parsers created by this factory must eliminate whitespace in element content (sometimes known loosely as 'ignorable whitespace') when parsing XML documents (see XML Rec 2.10).Note that only whitespace which is directly contained within element content that has an element only content model (see XML Rec 3.2.1) will be eliminated.
