Re: [resolved] How to read recursive XML tags

Loop xpath query should be : //task
it will retrieve all task element in the file
for column id xpath query would be : ./@id

Hi,
Make sure there is not a UTF-8 signature (BOM) on the XML file which can cause weird behavior in Talend.
See http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-utf8-bom for additional information.
Best,
