Catherine, I'm afraid my skills in shell scripting are about as minimal as
your skills in Java programming, so I can't help you much.

because we did not code something properly or the fact we made an assumption
regarding the XML file and now that section that was supposed to appear at
least once does not exist (that is what happened).  We submit all of our
production using cron jobs using shell scripts so they want me to trap the
error in my shell script and send a message out to the individuals that need
to look at fixing the problem.  I would not even know how to set up a Java
application to set this up.  Have written Java code for batch programs but I
am just a novice in this area.  Would be very interested in learning how to
set it up in a Java application.

Searched the web for the options available from net.sf.saxon call.
