I'm not sure I see your problem. The parse() method either returns or 
throws an exception. If it returns normally, the end of document was 
seen. If it throws an exception it wasn't.

Of course the filter only really nows what the previous filter in the 
chain tells it. It doesn't know and doesn't need to know what filters 
earlier in the chain say. That's the point of filtering.
