Stax XML EventReader: What portion of data is returned when parsing large data element
Posted on 2010-11-08
We have a very large content of one data element (over 1000 000 of strings). When we parse with stax we HARACTER event is triggered so that normall around 12 strings are returned by one event, so we assumed first, there is some parse buffer length there.
Then, we saw around 6 exceptuions of this rule.
We played around if that might be due to specific data and whitespaces but XML is generated automatically and after removing certin portions the problem appeared elsewhere at parsing
The question is: if stax event parses is faced to large contents what triggers the event and what portion of text we may expect in the returned characters ?
