        @ThingworxExtensionApiMethod(since={6,6})
        public static java.lang.String getNodeValue(org.w3c.dom.Node node)


        Will return the String value of the given node. This method accepts Node's of type Node.ELEMENT_NODE, Node.ATTRIBUTE_NODE, Node.TEXT_NODE and Node.CDATA_SECTION_NODE. All other Node types will return an empty string.

        Note: As of 7.2.0, if an Node.ELEMENT_NODE node has child Node.TEXT_NODE nodes containing only whitespace characters (like newlines or tabs) the node will be treated as an empty string. For example, if Node.TEXT_NODE node only contains "\n\t\t\t", the value will be "".

        Parameters:
        node - The DOM node that you want to retrieve the text value from
        Returns:
        The value of the given DOM node
