Class Overview

The root XML element. The entry point for this API. Not safe for concurrent use.

For example, passing this XML:

 <feed xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom'>
   <entry>
     <id>bob</id>
   </entry>
 </feed>
 
to this code:
 static final String ATOM_NAMESPACE = "http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom";

 ...
 
 RootElement root = new RootElement(ATOM_NAMESPACE, "feed");
 Element entry = root.getChild(ATOM_NAMESPACE, "entry");
 entry.getChild(ATOM_NAMESPACE, "id").setEndTextElementListener(
   new EndTextElementListener() {
     public void end(String body) {
       System.out.println("Entry ID: " + body);
     }
   });

 XMLReader reader = ...;
 reader.setContentHandler(root.getContentHandler());
 reader.parse(...);
 
would output:
 Entry ID: bob
