In Java, an exception is the *normal* way to do this.  Here's an
example (for SAX1):

  public class DoneParsingException extends SAXException

and then

  public void startElement (String name, AttributeList atts)
    if (iHaveSeenEnough) {
      throw new DoneParsingException();

and then

  try {
  } catch (DoneParsingException e) {
    System.out.println("Parsing finished OK");
  } catch (SAXException e) {
    System.out.println("Something went wrong");

I'm not sure what is time consuming about this.

All the best,
