Hi experts,

I am working on a project that needs to use SAX to parse an xml zip file ("myZip.zip"). The file is so big that I have to use SAX instead of DOM.

Does anybody have a basic piece of Java code to share with me so that I can start? This is my first time to work on such a SAX-parse-xmlzip project so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much.

Something along the lines of...

XMLReader xmlReader = XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader();
xmlReader.setContentHandler(new MyHandler());
xmlReader.parse(new InputSource(new ZipInputStream(new FileInputStream("myZip.zip"))));

Open in new window


And then the main task is to implement a ContentHandler class (MyHandler in the above) to do the actual parsing work.



As you can see it's pretty simple, so I guess that you may have other questions. If you can be more explicit about what you are having troubles with, I can help you better.
