SAXParseException

public class SAXParseException
extends SAXException

Encapsulate an XML parse error or warning.

This module, both source code and documentation, is in the Public Domain, and comes with NO WARRANTY. See http://www.saxproject.org for further information.

This exception may include information for locating the error in the original XML document, as if it came from a Locator object. Note that although the application will receive a SAXParseException as the argument to the handlers in the ErrorHandler interface, the application is not actually required to throw the exception; instead, it can simply read the information in it and take a different action.

Since this exception is a subclass of SAXException, it inherits the ability to wrap another exception.

Public constructors

SAXParseException

Added in API level 1
SAXParseException (String message, 
                Locator locator)

Create a new SAXParseException from a message and a Locator.

This constructor is especially useful when an application is creating its own exception from within a ContentHandler callback.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message.
locator Locator: The locator object for the error or warning (may be null).

SAXParseException

Added in API level 1
SAXParseException (String message, 
                Locator locator, 
                Exception e)

Wrap an existing exception in a SAXParseException.

This constructor is especially useful when an application is creating its own exception from within a ContentHandler callback, and needs to wrap an existing exception that is not a subclass of SAXException.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message, or null to use the message from the embedded exception.
locator Locator: The locator object for the error or warning (may be null).
e Exception: Any exception.

SAXParseException

Added in API level 1
SAXParseException (String message, 
                String publicId, 
                String systemId, 
                int lineNumber, 
                int columnNumber)

Create a new SAXParseException.

This constructor is most useful for parser writers.

All parameters except the message are as if they were provided by a Locator. For example, if the system identifier is a URL (including relative filename), the caller must resolve it fully before creating the exception.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message.
publicId String: The public identifier of the entity that generated the error or warning.
systemId String: The system identifier of the entity that generated the error or warning.
lineNumber int: The line number of the end of the text that caused the error or warning.
columnNumber int: The column number of the end of the text that cause the error or warning.

                int columnNumber, 
                Exception e)

Create a new SAXParseException with an embedded exception.

This constructor is most useful for parser writers who need to wrap an exception that is not a subclass of SAXException.

systemId String: The system identifier of the entity that generated the error or warning.
lineNumber int: The line number of the end of the text that caused the error or warning.
