Represents a parser configuration. The parser configuration maintains a table of recognized features and properties, assembles components for the parsing pipeline, and is responsible for initiating parsing of an XML document.

By separating the configuration of a parser from the specific parser instance, applications can create new configurations and re-use the existing parser components and external API generators (e.g. the DOMParser and SAXParser).

The internals of any specific parser configuration instance are hidden. Therefore, each configuration may implement the parsing mechanism any way necessary. However, the parser configuration should follow these guidelines:

Method from org.apache.xerces.xni.parser.XMLParserConfiguration Detail:
 public  void addRecognizedFeatures(String[] featureIds)
    Allows a parser to add parser specific features to be recognized and managed by the parser configuration.
 public  void addRecognizedProperties(String[] propertyIds)
    Allows a parser to add parser specific properties to be recognized and managed by the parser configuration.
 public XMLDTDContentModelHandler getDTDContentModelHandler()
    Returns the registered DTD content model handler.
 public XMLDTDHandler getDTDHandler()
    Returns the registered DTD handler.
 public XMLDocumentHandler getDocumentHandler()
    Returns the registered document handler.
 public XMLEntityResolver getEntityResolver()
    Returns the registered entity resolver.
 public XMLErrorHandler getErrorHandler()
    Returns the registered error handler.
 public boolean getFeature(String featureId) throws XMLConfigurationException
    Returns the state of a feature.
 public Locale getLocale()
    Returns the locale.
 public Object getProperty(String propertyId) throws XMLConfigurationException
    Returns the value of a property.
 public  void parse(XMLInputSource inputSource) throws IOException, XNIException
    Parse an XML document.

    The parser can use this method to instruct this configuration to begin parsing an XML document from any valid input source (a character stream, a byte stream, or a URI).

    Parsers may not invoke this method while a parse is in progress. Once a parse is complete, the parser may then parse another XML document.

    This method is synchronous: it will not return until parsing has ended. If a client application wants to terminate parsing early, it should throw an exception.

    When this method returns, all characters streams and byte streams opened by the parser are closed.

 public  void setDTDContentModelHandler(XMLDTDContentModelHandler dtdContentModelHandler)
    Sets the DTD content model handler.
 public  void setDTDHandler(XMLDTDHandler dtdHandler)
    Sets the DTD handler.
 public  void setDocumentHandler(XMLDocumentHandler documentHandler)
    Sets the document handler to receive information about the document.
 public  void setEntityResolver(XMLEntityResolver entityResolver)
    Sets the entity resolver.
 public  void setErrorHandler(XMLErrorHandler errorHandler)
    Sets the error handler.
 public  void setFeature(String featureId,
    boolean state) throws XMLConfigurationException
    Sets the state of a feature. This method is called by the parser and gets propagated to components in this parser configuration.
 public  void setLocale(Locale locale) throws XNIException
    Set the locale to use for messages.
 public  void setProperty(String propertyId,
    Object value) throws XMLConfigurationException
    Sets the value of a property. This method is called by the parser and gets propagated to components in this parser configuration.
