this will help You can't use a single XPath 1.0 expression to rearrange nodes into groups.
What you can do is actually select the Flt970 elements, iterate over those, and grab the elements inside them:
code :
XPathExpression expr = xpath.compile("//TOC//SSIFlds/Fld970");
//evaluate expression result on XML document
NodeList nodes = (NodeList) expr.evaluate(doc, XPathConstants.NODESET);

for (int i = 0; i < nodes.getLength(); i++) {
    Element node = (Element)nodes.item(i);
    String l = getChildValue(node, "l"), 
           t = getChildValue(node, "t"), 
           p = getChildValue(node, "p");

    // use l, t, and p as needed

// defined elsewhere
private static String getChildValue(Element parent, String childName) {
    NodeList nodes = parent.getElementsByTagName(childName);
    return nodes.getLength() > 0 ? nodes.item(0).getTextContent() : "";

wish help you to fix your issue I have two xml files. One is reference(old) file and another one is test(new) file. Based on some rules supplied to me I have to check if something was removed from old model and then added to new one or check if something from old file was removed in new file. , I found the solution to my problem:
code :
public void validateBooleanVTD2(PropertyRule prop, int i) throws XPathParseException, XPathEvalException,
        NavException {
    int n = -1;
    String xPath = prop.getEntitiesObjects().get(i).getxPath(); // eg. /people/man/attribute[not(key)]
    String propertyChecked = prop.getTag(); // eg. mandatory 
    VTDGen parseRef = new VTDGen();
    VTDGen parseTest = new VTDGen();
    parseRef.parseFile(ref, false);
    parseTest.parseFile(test, false);
    VTDNav navigateRef = parseRef.getNav();
    VTDNav navigateTest = parseTest.getNav();
    AutoPilot autopilotRef = new AutoPilot();
    AutoPilot autopilotTest = new AutoPilot();
    //Instant start = Instant.now();

    while ((n = autopilotRef.evalXPath()) != -1) {
        int nameIndexRef = navigateRef.getAttrVal("name");
        String nameRef = navigateRef.toNormalizedString(nameIndexRef);
        //System.out.println(navigateTest.toString(n + 2));
        //System.out.println(navigateTest.toString(n + 1));
        AutoPilot autopilotRefTestTag = new AutoPilot();
        AutoPilot autopilotTestTestTag = new AutoPilot();
        autopilotTestTestTag.selectXPath(xPath + "[@name='" + nameRef + "'][descendant::"+propertyChecked+"]"); // property in Test
        autopilotRefTestTag.selectXPath(xPath + "[@name='" + nameRef + "'][descendant::"+propertyChecked+"]"); // property in Ref
        if(autopilotRefTestTag.evalXPathToBoolean() == true && autopilotTestTestTag.evalXPathToBoolean() == false)
            System.out.println(nameRef/* +":"+navigateRef.toString(n)+":"+propertyChecked + ":Updated:"+prop.getTrue2falseValue()+":Changed From True to False:"+prop.getTrue2falseDesc()*/);
        if(autopilotRefTestTag.evalXPathToBoolean() == false && autopilotTestTestTag.evalXPathToBoolean() == true)
            System.out.println(nameRef/* +":"+navigateRef.toString(n)+":"+propertyChecked + ":Updated:"+prop.getFalse2trueValue()+":Changed From False to True:"+prop.getFalse2trueDesc()*/);
