Bonjour, Nicolas.

The CallMethodRule always operates on the top object on the
object-stack. If you have the rules:

 * digester.addFactoryCreate("acces/reader", ....)
 * digester.addCallMethod("acces/reader", ...)

then the top object on the stack will be the object your factory method
has just created. This is why you are getting the "no such method"
problem; there is no setReader method on the object returned by your

The SetNextRule is exactly what you need to use here; it operates on the
second-to-top object on the stack, passing the top object on the stack.
This is exactly what is needed for building parent->child relationships.

CallMethodRule is for populating attributes of a class with data
extracted from xml attributes, and from text fields within subelements,
not for building parent->child relations.

I don't understand why you think SetNextRule is not an elegant
