My code listing:

public static void main(String[] args) {

try {

    Configuration config = new PropertiesConfiguration("properties/sidcom-aspim-mapper.properties");

    ZipFile zipfile = new ZipFile(config.getString("path.zipfile"));

    for (Enumeration<? extends ZipEntry> e = zipfile.entries(); e.hasMoreElements();) {

        ZipEntry entry = e.nextElement();

        if (entry.getName().equals("Elements/Product_Technology/Product_Technology.xml")) {

            InputStream is = zipfile.getInputStream(entry);

            Processor processor = new Processor(false);

            XPathCompiler compiler = processor.newXPathCompiler();

            XPathSelector selector = compiler.compile("//ProductTehnologyAbs[PRODUCT_CODE/@value='I1100']/ACCESS_TYPE/@value").load();

            XdmNode node = processor.newDocumentBuilder().build(new StreamSource(is));

            // XdmNode node = processor.newDocumentBuilder().build(//new StreamSource("test.xml"));

            //When i use an xml file from my local disk (which content is exactly the same  as from the zipped xml file) it works fine.


            for (XdmItem item : selector) {




} catch (IOException e) {


} catch (ConfigurationException e) {


} catch (Exception e) {




So what am i missing here... is there a problem with the inputstream?? that there are some bytes missing or whatever?
