    Default [SOLVED] Using xml short tags with SAXParser


    I've managed to get basic xml processing done using SAXParser, so I altered my xml to how I have it in my specification (using xml short tags), e.g.
    Java Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <obj name="x" type="y" state="z" />
    <obj name="xx" type="yy" state="zz" />
    But now it throws the following (fatal) error:
    The markup in the document following the root element must be well-formed.
    Is there any way to make it handle short xml tags?

    I also can implement the catch blocks, the "fatalError" exception is caught before the program quits, is there a way to get it to keep calm and carry on?

    Here's my handler code:
    Java Code:
    SAXParserFactory factory = SAXParserFactory.newInstance();
    saxParser = factory.newSAXParser();
    handler = new DefaultHandler() {
    	public void startElement(String uri, String localName, String qName, Attributes attributes)
    		throws SAXException {
    		//System.out.println(":: " + qName);
    		int length = attributes.getLength();
    		for (int i=0; i<length; i++) {
    			String name = attributes.getQName(i);
    			String value = attributes.getValue(i);
    			//System.out.println("\t" + name + " : " + value);
    	public void fatalError(SAXParseException e) throws SAXException {
    		System.out.println("XML: FATALERROR");

    Default Re: Using xml short tags with SAXParser

    Oops, xml (well here) needs to only have a single root element!

    Short tags are handled too ;)
