SAXParseException while parsing the data

Hi All,

I'm trying to write parse XML using JAXP 1.1. I've given input to parser as shown in below code.

SAXParserFactory factory = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
SAXParser parser = factory.newSAXParser();
parser.parse(new File(args[0], handler);


this worked for me. But I've tried to pass java.io.InputStream reference to the overloaded parse() method of SAXParser class, it throwed the following exception

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Content is not allowed in trailing section.
at org.apache.xerces.parsers.AbstractSAXParser.parse(Unknown Source)
at javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser.parse(SAXParser.java:345)
at javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser.parse(SAXParser.java:143)
at CMMCompareHelper.main(CMMCompareHelper.java:234)


I'm using JAXP 1.1 with J2SE 1..4.2. My requirement is that I get the XML as a String and I've tried to convert it to java.io.ByteArrayInputStream and passed to the SAXParser. It din't work. Code I've written to do this is shown below:

FileInputStream in = new FileInputStream(new File(args[0]));
                  
byte[] buf = new byte[512];
ByteArrayOutputStream byteOut = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
while(in.read(buf) != -1){
    byteOut.write(buf);                        
}
InputStream newCMMStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(byteOut.toByteArray());                  
SAXParser parser = factory.newSAXParser();                  
parser.parse(newCMMStream, handler);


Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help in this regard.

Try using following statement to convert your xml string directly into InputStream (without using FileInputStream)  :

InputStream newCMMStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(xmlString.getBytes("UTF-8"));

Hi,

I got it worked by getting the input from String instead of File.

Thank you,

You write the whole of the buffer. That would only work in the very unlikely eventuality that inputlength % buf.length == 0. Otherwise you're going to write garbage at the end
