Of the core classes and interfaces, only Parser, AttributeList, DocumentHandler, and HandlerBase (which is really a helper anyway) are deprecated. All of the rest -- InputSource, Locator, EntityResolver, DTDHandler, ErrorHandler, SAXException, and SAXParseException -- are left untouched. > Like it or not SAX2 is a completely new API, so why not leave SAX1 > untouched (ie. no @deprecated's) and have a completely fresh > org.xml.sax2.* tree? Actually, most of it is the same. For the C++ implementation, obviously, we won't bother with the deprecated interfaces and classes. > And I still think there needs to be a SAX2 equivalent of > ParserFactory ... bizarrely it's easier to create a SAX1 > Parser in an implementation independent way than it is to do > the same for an XMLReader.

I haven't ruled out putting something in before SAX2 goes final, but it has to be very small and very simple.
