   SAX Filters, Chapter 8 of processing XML with Java

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I've posted the first draft of SAX Filters, Chapter 8 of Processing 
XML with Java on Cafe con Leche:


This chapter covers the XMLFilter interface and the XMLFilterImpl and 
AttributesImpl classes. It demonstrates how to write filters that 
modify the stream of events that flows between an XML parser and a 
client application.

This is a big chapter, and some of the examples are a bit on the long 
side. I'm curious to know whether you think they make sense, or 
whether they're too long to follow. On the flip side, in several 
examples I've limited myself to only one class of several or even a 
single method, rather than including the entire set of classes needed 
to do something useful. I need to know if these examples are still 
comprehensible. As usual all comments are appreciated.

This is the last tutorial chapter on SAX. There'll be one more 
reference chapter later on. However, right now the first eight 
chapters form a very solid introductory text about processing XML 
with SAX2. If anybody notices any important topics in that domain 
that haven't been covered yet, I'd appreciate hearing about it. 
Chapter 9 will begin the coverage of DOM.
