I am trying to construct an xpath expression which will select the second matching node of a nodelist.
I have: //org[@department='Foo']
I expected that to select all //org nodes where @department = 'Foo' and then give me the second within that set.
however this is behaving as
//org[@department='Foo'/self::node()[position() = 2] which will always be empty.
No, it is actually behaving as
that is, it will select every org that is the second child of its parent that has @department foo.
You probably want (//org)[@department='Foo']
