Concatenate XML Nodes using Javascript

Hello everyone,

I have a question on XML with Javascript. Here is my situation:

I have two xml documents (1.xml and 2.xml) with similar structure:


Using Javascript, I managed to load the 1.xml document, store the <value> nodes into a variable called valueNodes.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
  2. xmlDoc.load("note.xml");
  4. var personNode = xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName("person").item(0);
  5. var dataNode = personNode.getElementsByTagName("data").item(0);
  6. valueNodes = dataNode.getElementsByTagName("value");
My question: when I load 2.xml, is there a method to get the <value> nodes and then concatenate them to nodes that I already have in valueNodes? I have tried

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. valueNodes = valueNodes + dataNode.getElementsByTagName("value");
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. valueNodes = valueNodes & dataNode.getElementsByTagName("value");
but to no avail.

Any suggestions are appreciated :) Thanks!

Hello again,

To clarify my question, what I need is to concatenate the results of


to valueNodes, that is, all the nodes. Just found out there is appendChild function, to use this I will need to iterate the results and append one by one, but this will take to much resource for me as there are about 6000 nodes to append.

Thanks again for any suggestions.

I don't know if something like this would improve performance.

joinNodeLists: function(list1,list2){
var i = list2.length - 1;

do{ list1[list1.length] = list2[i];


return list1;
