Subject Re: [mina] sample with XML
Date Fri, 06 Jan 2006 16:07:31 GMT

I ended up using Jdom for paring the XML in my proxy server for Jabber
using MINA.  It worked very well.  Basically you can create a
ProtocolCodecFactory that uses a custom ProtocolDecoder.  The decoder
will have to overwrite the decode() method where it will convert the
ByteBuffer that it receives into an org.jdom.Document instance.  You
can either do the parsing of the XML there or do it in your
IoHandlerAdapter's messageReceived() method.

There is a good example of using a ProtocolCodecFactory for converting
the messages to Strings on the MINA website; it's basically the same
thing, except you convert it into either a Jdom Document like I'm
doing or one of the others that Vinod suggested.  Take a look at the
package org.apache.mina.filter.codec.textline for an example:

I hope that helps.
