import org.xml.sax is deprecated

Hi All, Please help ... I am a beginner of using SAX with Java. I think I don't have the org.xml.sax.* classes in my java class. So, I downloaded "saxjava-1.0" from www.megginson.com (I hope I downloaded the correct one). I unzipped the file and put it in my Java folder. However, it doesn't work when I run my Java code. I think I might missed out something ... like didn't import the file to Java classes? If so, how can I do that? My java code is trying to read an XML file and print out how many books in the xml file. After compiled, it has the following message:

"package com.jclark.xml.sax does not exists"

and 2 compiler warnings:
C:\XML\BookCounter.java:12:warning:org.xml.sax.HandlerBase in org.xml.sax has been deprecated.

C:\XML\BookCounter.java:21:warning:org.xml.sax.Parser in org.xml.sax has been deprecated.

My java code as follow:
------------------------------
import org.xml.sax.*;


public class BookCounter extends HandlerBase
{
    public static void main (String args[]) throws Exception
    {
           (new BookCounter()).countBooks();
    }
   
        public void countBooks() throws Exception
        {
            Parser p = new com.jclark.xml.sax.Driver();
            p.setDocumentHandler(this);
            p.parse("file:///C:/books.xml");
        }
}

Hi hbcontact,
Instead of using jClark driver, I would suggest you to go for Xerces, which is widely used in the industry.
Download the latest driver from,
http://xml.apache.org/dist/xerces-j/

You may download Xerces-J-bin.1.4.4.zip. When you unzip it, there will be a folder called Samples. There you can find many SAX java sample programs.

Hope this might help.
