All Implemented Interfaces:
DocumentHandler, XMLReader

public class ParserAdapter
extends java.lang.Object
implements XMLReader, DocumentHandler

Adapt a SAX1 Parser as a SAX2 XMLReader.

This module, both source code and documentation, is in the Public Domain, and comes with NO WARRANTY.

This class wraps a SAX1 Parser and makes it act as a SAX2 XMLReader, with feature, property, and Namespace support. Note that it is not possible to report skippedEntity events, since SAX1 does not make that information available.

This adapter does not test for duplicate Namespace-qualified attribute names.

SAX 2.0

Constructor Detail

ParserAdapter

public ParserAdapter()
              throws SAXException
Construct a new parser adapter.

Use the "org.xml.sax.parser" property to locate the embedded SAX1 driver.

Throws:
SAXException - If the embedded driver cannot be instantiated or if the org.xml.sax.parser property is not specified.

ParserAdapter

public ParserAdapter(Parser parser)
Construct a new parser adapter.

Note that the embedded parser cannot be changed once the adapter is created; to embed a different parser, allocate a new ParserAdapter.

Parameters:
parser - The SAX1 parser to embed.
Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - If the parser parameter is null.
