I tried to test it but could not copy the xml file, since u are using DOM XML parser so I assume it to be correct the only possibility is about the printing/accessing those.

You are checking only IOTACode and Avg Rating so u are going to miss some items definitely.

I would suggest to look at the following code and reorganize your code correctly http://www.mkyong.com/java/how-to-read-xml-file-in-java-dom-parser/

PS: it would be good that you post the problem with full info like what is the output what is expected output. Describe the problem clear and crisp so that an unknown person can understand everything.

how to handle the multiple empty nodes during parsing using java

What would be the best module available for parsing html?
My intention is to parse html that contains a table of 5 columns and any number of rows, and have a hash ref like $html->{1}->{col1}=data11, $html->{1}->{col2}=data12 ...$html->{2}->{col1}=data21, $html->{2}->{col2}=data22...etc
Would there be an existing module that can do this without too much effort on my part?

Example: consider this string
" Parse this date string 10 juil 2014 @@@parse date " OR "10 juil 2014" (This is easy with SimpleDateFormat using Locale.French) but I want the solution to extract date first from the string and then convert to Date using SimpleDateFormat.
