Archived: Using SAX Implementation Provided in JDK 1.4

This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the SAX interface included in JDK 1.4, which actually uses SAX implementation provided by the org.apache.crimson package.

I have a simple program here,, to show what are the implementation classes provided JDK 1.4 for the SAX interfaces:

 * Copyright (c) 2002-2018 All Rights Reserved.
import javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory;
import javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser;
import javax.xml.parsers.ParserConfigurationException;
import org.xml.sax.helpers.DefaultHandler;
import org.xml.sax.SAXException;
class SAXClassChecker {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      try {
         File x = new File(args[0]);
         SAXParserFactory f = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
         SAXParser p = f.newSAXParser();
         DefaultHandler h = new DefaultHandler();
      } catch (ParserConfigurationException e) {
      } catch (SAXException e) {
      } catch (IOException e) {

If you run this sample program, you will get:

herong> java SAXClassChecker hello.xml


Note that:

Notes and sample codes in this section are based on JDK 1.4.1_01.
