I have developped an XML Parser in Java and a tree based API which works fine. 
I have implemented the whole XML 1.0 (REC 10-02-1998), the XML Namespaces (WD 
27-03-1998, the Document Object Model Level 1 (DOM Core and XML, WD 
16-04-1998) and both XML links and XML pointers.

I'd like now providing and event based API. I am considering the SAX API for 
developping a SAX driver to my XML parser. I've got already an XMLFactory (an 
interface with a default implementation) that constructs my XML objects and 
i've got a few questions:

1/ For instance, the construction of the tree is supporting by the parser 
(with some insertLast(...)).
Do i need to transfer the tree construction within the "default XML handler" ?

2/ What about CDATA sections, XML declaration, and validation processus ?

3/ If i understand the event-based philosophy, an XML parser do not need to 
know something about DOM objects (no "new Element()", "new Comment()" called 
within the code of the parser !) ?

4/ Is there a kind of "blue print" for developping an event-based XML parser ?
