    Default SAX Parse

    Ive successfully written code to parse a XML file from an internet URL. Now Im trying to do the same thing to a local file and im missing something simple (i think).

    Java Code:
                SAXParserFactory spf = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
                SAXParser sp = spf.newSAXParser();         
                /* Get the XMLReader of the SAXParser we created. */
                XMLReader xr = sp.getXMLReader();
                /* Create a new ContentHandler and apply it to the XML-Reader*/
                ExampleHandler myExampleHandler = new ExampleHandler();
                [b]fin = new FileReader(filename);
                xr.parse(new InputSource(fin));[/b]
    fin is declared as a FileReader object and initialized to null. When I parsed a file from the internet, I used the following code instead of the code in bold above:
    Java Code:
    xr.parse(new InputSource(url.openStream()));
    Thanks for the help!

    You haven't said what the problem is that you are getting :) However InputSources expect to work with Streams rather than Readers so I would change your bold portion to read:
    Java Code:
    fin = new FileInputStream(filename);
     xr.parse(new InputSource(fin));
    and of course change the definition of fin to be a FileInputStream
    -- Hope that helps
