Class ParserFactory

java.lang.Object

  +--org.xml.sax.helpers.ParserFactory

Deprecated. This class works with the deprecated Parser interface.

public class ParserFactory
extends java.lang.Object

Java-specific class for dynamically loading SAX parsers.

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

Note: This class is designed to work with the now-deprecated SAX1 Parser class. SAX2 applications should use XMLReaderFactory instead.

ParserFactory is not part of the platform-independent definition of SAX; it is an additional convenience class designed specifically for Java XML application writers. SAX applications can use the static methods in this class to allocate a SAX parser dynamically at run-time based either on the value of the `org.xml.sax.parser' system property or on a string containing the class name.

Note that the application still requires an XML parser that implements SAX1.

                                java.lang.ClassCastException
Deprecated. 
Create a new SAX parser using the `org.xml.sax.parser' system property.

The named class must exist and must implement the Parser interface.

Throws:
java.lang.NullPointerException - There is no value for the `org.xml.sax.parser' system property.
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException - The SAX parser class was not found (check your CLASSPATH).
java.lang.IllegalAccessException - The SAX parser class was found, but you do not have permission to load it.
java.lang.InstantiationException - The SAX parser class was found but could not be instantiated.
java.lang.ClassCastException - The SAX parser class was found and instantiated, but does not implement org.xml.sax.Parser.
