We can use Java inbuilt libraries to create a regex pattern and search for that in the String(data in the file). The below code might give you some idea.

public static void main(String[] args) throws FileNotFoundException 
    //Change the path for the file
    String content = new Scanner(new File("/home/santhoshkumar/Desktop/sample.xml")).useDelimiter("\\Z").next();


    Pattern pattern = Pattern.compile("<SupplierPartID>(.*)</SupplierPartID>");    
    Matcher matcher = pattern.matcher(content);  

    while (matcher.find()) 


Hope this helps you. Thanks
