Class HandlerBase

All Implemented Interfaces:
DocumentHandler, DTDHandler, EntityResolver, ErrorHandler

public class HandlerBase
extends Object
implements EntityResolver, DTDHandler, DocumentHandler, ErrorHandler
This class works with the deprecated DocumentHandler interface. It has been replaced by the SAX2 DefaultHandler class.
Default base class for handlers.

This class implements the default behavior for four SAX1 interfaces: EntityResolver, DTDHandler, DocumentHandler, and ErrorHandler. It is now obsolete, but is included in SAX2 to support legacy SAX1 applications. SAX2 applications should use the DefaultHandler class instead.

Application writers can extend this class when they need to implement only part of an interface; parser writers can instantiate this class to provide default handlers when the application has not supplied its own.

Note that the use of this class is optional.
