Once you have created a class implementing DocumentHandler,
instantiated it, and registered it with the Parser, and initiated the
parse, then your handler will receive callbacks.  Here's a simplified

  start document
  start element: "BOOK"
  characters: "Rainmaker : John Grisham"
  end element: "BOOK"
  end document

Actually, a SAX parser is free to chunk up characters any which way,
so you might end up with

  start document
  start element: "BOOK"
  characters: "Rainmaker"
  characters: " "
  characters: ":"
  characters: " "
  characters: "John"
  characters: " "
  characters: "Grisham"
  end element: "BOOK"
  end document

Or even more extremely, one callback for each character.

All the best,
