Parsing XML file with Groovy script

I am trying to read in a naked xml file and parse it but for some reason XMLSlurper doesn't seem to be able to see child nodes. To make things easy I have created a groovy script with the xml inside of it so you don't need to bother with importing a file etc. this part I can do without error.

 

Here is an example of what I am trying to do

 

def testxml = '''
    <connStrings>
	<env>
		<envName>test</envName>
		<conn>
			<connName>wba</connName>
			<host>host01</host>
			<port>1500</port>
			<user>user01</user>
			<password>P@ssw0rd</password>
			<sid>sid01</sid>
		</conn>
	</env>
	</connStrings>
  '''

def myFile = new XmlSlurper().parseText(testxml)
m = myFile.connStrings.env.envName.toString()
log.info m
c = myFile.count("//connStrings/env/envName/conn/connName")
log.info c

When I run this it returns

Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry about it, that was actually done quickly (could not test) for the change that you requested ( to loop thru all environments, and connection names)

    That was happening because, you provided all connection names, but some of them are not present in all environments.

    Handled now, please take the updated script from github.

    Here is the script:

     

    def testxml = '''<connStrings>
    <env>
      <envName>test</envName>
      <conn>
       <connName>wba</connName>
       <host>host01</host>
       <port>1500</port>
       <user>user01</user>
       <password>P@ssw0rd</password>
       <sid>sid01</sid>
      </conn>
    </env>
    </connStrings>'''
    
    def connStrings = new XmlSlurper().parseText(testxml)
    println "Environment name : ${connStrings.env.envName}"
    println "Connection name : ${connStrings.env.conn.connName}"

      Thank you for that. I also need to be able to count the <connName> node, in my actual file I have several of these. Do you know how that can be done?

        In that case please provide actual file, even above script may not work.
