Description

The Javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder.setErrorHandler(ErrorHandler eh) method specifies the ErrorHandler to be used by the parser. Setting this to null will result in the underlying implementation using it's own default implementation and behavior.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for Javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder.setErrorHandler() method

public abstract void setErrorHandler(ErrorHandler eh)

Parameters

  • eh − The ErrorHandler to be used by the parser.

Return Value

Example

For our examples to work, a xml file named Student.xml is needed in our CLASSPATH. The contents of this XML are the following −

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8" standalone = "yes"?>
<student id = "10">
   <age>12</age>
   <name>Malik</name>
</student>

The following example shows the usage of Javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder.setErrorHandler() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilder;
import javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory;
import org.w3c.dom.Document;
import org.w3c.dom.Element;
import org.w3c.dom.NodeList;

public class DocumentBuilderDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create a new DocumentBuilderFactory
      DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();

      try {
         // use the factory to create a documentbuilder
         DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();

         // use the default error handler
         builder.setErrorHandler(null);

         // create a new document from input stream and an empty systemId
         Document doc = builder.parse("Student.xml");

         // get the first element
         Element element = doc.getDocumentElement();

         // get all child nodes
         NodeList nodes = element.getChildNodes();

         // print the text content of each child
         for (int i = 0; i < nodes.getLength(); i++) {
            System.out.println("" + nodes.item(i).getTextContent());
         }

      } catch (Exception ex) {
         ex.printStackTrace();
      }
   }
}

If we compile the code and execute it, this will produce the following result −


   
12

   
Malik
