entityExpansionLimit warning

I am aware of the reason and significance of entityExpansionLimit property of XMLParser in Java but...
I have an application which needs to be aware of the count of the entities reached so far so once it get close to the limitation, a warning will popup.
Is there a chance to accomplish that? How can I check when I reach that limit but one step before that crucial moment where my data becoames invalid?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you could use SAX to do the parsing.

Why will that do good?
If there's no limitation in SAX's parser than I create a security hole (after all this limitation is to prevent denial of service) and if there's a limitation than why is it different?

SAX will all you to take action during the parsing, and stop it (the parsing)
