Last time I looked Sun's stuff wasn't nearly as useful as you suggest. Basically they've thrown away ParserFactory and replaced it with something similar which (presumably) sits on top of their J2EE config files. As far as I remember there's no way of specifying a particular set of Parser features. > The "XMLReaderImplementation" class you propose could be used by > such a factory to do its work. Indeed ... and that's exactly what I've done. Check out org.xml.sax.helpers.XMLReaderImplementations (note the plural). > Alternatively, such a factory could be driven by a config file > (in XML :-) describing various parsers that are available. That's the strategy I took for the transparent SAX 1 adaptor stuff. Not XML tho' ... too many chicken and egg problems I fear ;-) Cheers, Miles -- Miles Sabin Cromwell Media Internet Systems Architect 5/6 Glenthorne Mews +44 (0)20 8817 4030 London, W6 0LJ, England msabin@c... http://www.cromwellmedia.com/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
