Have you tried an ObjectCreate followed by a SetProperties?

Hi there, I've tried finding a solution to what I think should be quite a simple problem using the Commons Digester, but the tutorials I can find on the subject only really cover the basics and aren't of any help. Given an XML fragment like the following: <article id="_1234"> <text>...</text> </article> I need the Digester to call a method on an Article class, with the following signiture: public void setId(long id); In other words I just need a Rule that will fire for an XML "id" attribute, and remove an underscore from the front of a String before converting it to a long, and calling the appropriate method. I realise that this will require some kind of custom class to chop up the String, but the pattern you apply to matching the rule ("article/id") appears to refer to a nested id element, rather than an id attribute. I can't seem to find an example of this anywhere. All the custom rules examples appear to refer to nested elements. Any suggestions? Have I missed something in the API? Cheers Jon
