SAX Parser and DTD

Hello all, I'm using Apache's Xerces-C 1.4 to write a validating parser for my app. The validation works, but my prob is that if the xml file is not in valid format the parser stops at the very first invalid section.

I want to collect all the invalid points in the XML document and report them at the end of the parse of the entire document!

Any hints?

Maybe, yes....

take a look at O`Reilly - homepage. In the sampels for the book Java and XML (Download from http://examples.oreilly.com/javaxml/)

they show how to implement an own error-handler (chapter 3 or so....). With this sample, you should be able to handle your problem.

The parser should report all errors. What is your handler doing?

Thanks guys, fixed it. Used:


wbrandey, my Handler implements the ErrorHandler and DocumentHandler interfaces. What I want to do is to create a report of the parse process and see what it encountered during the parse so I'm capturing all errors and examining the elements for attributes and stuff ...

Choli, the points are yours ...
