Subject Re: Trouble writing a FilterReader
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2002 11:07:31 GMT
(Uh, there was a "slight" delay, but I'm working on my
FilterReader again...)

I'm actually altering an existing FilterReader which
doesn't take any attributes or nested elements. Can I
have BOTH attributes and nested elements?

Did I understand you correctly: expanding
BaseParamFilterReader rules out the possibility of
using nested elements other than params? What about

What I would like to achieve is:
<myfilter attrib="foo">
  <nestedelem value="bar"/>
