Parse xml with namespaces using JQuery and working for all browser ..

Tags: , , ,



I’m trying to parse an XML response from a service using JQuery 1.11

At the moment my code works but only in Chrome, not for IE or Firefox and I need it works for all “modern” browsers.

Here you are a sample of my XML

<?xml version='1.0' encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<wfs:FeatureCollection
   xmlns:ms="http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/mapserver"
   xmlns:wfs="http://www.opengis.net/wfs"

   xmlns:ogc="http://www.opengis.net/ogc"

        </gml:Point>
        </ms:boundary>
        <ms:id>13800026457290</ms:id>
        <ms:nome>Borgata Tetti Sotto</ms:nome>
        <ms:civico>25</ms:civico>
        <ms:istat>01004041</ms:istat>

        <ms:cap>12030</ms:cap>
        <ms:comune>CARAMAGNA PIEMONTE</ms:comune>
        <ms:nome_ted> </ms:nome_ted>
        <ms:provincia>CUNEO</ms:provincia>
        <ms:regione>PIEMONTE</ms:regione>
      </ms:IN.NUMERICIVICI.2012>

    </gml:featureMember>

Here you are my code

var xmlText = $('#featureData').text(),
$xmlData = $.parseXML(xmlText),
$features = $('featureMember', $xmlData),
extractedFeatures = [];

$features.each(function () {
var $this = $(this),
    feature = {},
    items = [
        'nome',
        'civico',
        'istat',
        'cap',
        'comune'
    ],
    item;

for (var i = 0; i < items.length; i++) {
    item = items[i];
    feature[item] = $this.find(item).text();
}

extractedFeatures.push(feature);
});

$('#output').text(JSON.stringify(extractedFeatures));

and here you are my jsfiddle so you can try it

Any suggestion or workaround? Thank you very much in advance …

Answer

You have to be careful with namespaces… if you work with XML that has some namespaces declaration you have to keep it in mind and build appropriate selectors.

For example:

$features = $('gml\:featureMember, featureMember', $xmlData),

Please take a look on update fiddle. Now it works in FF and IE as well.
