Hm, I'm working really often with StAX and I'm using the event reader in
my custom input format to create the records and produce a List of
XMLEvents or more precisely now ListWritable which has a membervariable
List<XMLEventWritable> and extends ArrayWritable:

     * Constructor.
     * @param paramList
     *            List of {@link XMLEvent}s.
    public ListWritable(final List<XMLEventWritable> paramList) {
        super(XMLEventWritable.class, paramList.toArray(new
        mList = paramList;


and in my XMLEventWritable:

    public void write(final DataOutput paramOut) throws IOException {
        try {
        } catch (final XMLStreamException e) {
            // Implement logging.

But my problem is now readFields(final DataInput paramIn). I assume I
have to create an XMLEventFactory, but I'm not sure how to determine the
type of the event and so on (normally event.getEventType()). So I would
have to get the whole input:

final String line = paramIn.readUTF();

and parse it if it's a start tag, end tag, comment, character... and
then create the appropriate event?

Baaah, horrible ;-)
