|Known Indirect Subclasses|
This interface was deprecated.
This interface has been replaced by the SAX2
interface, which includes Namespace support.
Receive notification of general document events.
This module, both source code and documentation, is in the Public Domain, and comes with NO WARRANTY. See http://www.saxproject.org for further information.
This was the main event-handling interface for SAX1; in
SAX2, it has been replaced by
ContentHandler, which provides Namespace support and reporting
of skipped entities. This interface is included in SAX2 only
to support legacy SAX1 applications.
The order of events in this interface is very important, and mirrors the order of information in the document itself. For example, all of an element's content (character data, processing instructions, and/or subelements) will appear, in order, between the startElement event and the corresponding endElement event.
Application writers who do not want to implement the entire interface can derive a class from HandlerBase, which implements the default functionality; parser writers can instantiate HandlerBase to obtain a default handler. The application can find the location of any document event using the Locator interface supplied by the Parser through the setDocumentLocator method.
