SAXTransformerFactory

public abstract class SAXTransformerFactory extends TransformerFactory

This class extends TransformerFactory to provide SAX-specific factory methods. It provides two types of ContentHandlers, one for creating Transformers, the other for creating Templates objects.

If an application wants to set the ErrorHandler or EntityResolver for an XMLReader used during a transformation, it should use a URIResolver to return the SAXSource which provides (with getXMLReader) a reference to the XMLReader.

Constant Summary

String FEATURE If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the TransformerFactory returned from newInstance() may be safely cast to a SAXTransformerFactory.
String FEATURE_XMLFILTER If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the newXMLFilter(Source) and newXMLFilter(Templates) methods are supported.
