You are right on both counts.
It would be possible to have the parser continue after an error, but
the InputStream interface doesn't really allow for that. You would
need something like the ErrorListener or ErrorHandler interfaces from
JAXP or SAX, which categorize errors into 'warnings,' non-fatal 'errors'
and 'fatal errors.'
I will add to our suggestion database the idea of an EDI validator.
