Subject Re: How do i get the dtd name?
Date Sun, 22 Oct 2000 15:46:23 GMT
Hey there Sandeep!

Unfortunately the DOCTYPE is not reported as the first element. What you 
need to do it write your own LexicalHandler. You implement the 
LexicalHandler interface in a class and it defines a method

startDTD(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String publicId, java.lang.String 

like so:

import org.xml.sax.ext.*;
public class MyLexicalHandler implements LexicalHandler
   public void startDTD(String name, String publicId, String systemId) 
throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
     System.out.println("Got the DTD: " + name + sep);
       System.out.println("\tType SYSTEM: " + systemId);
       System.out.println("\tType PUBLIC: " + publicId);
   public void endDTD() throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
   public void startEntity(String parm1) throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
   public void endEntity(String parm1) throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
   public void startCDATA() throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
   public void endCDATA() throws org.xml.sax.SAXException
   public void comment(char[] parm1, int parm2, int parm3) throws 

Then in your mail parser class just enable the property:
new MyLexicalHandler());

And you are good to go.

Have a good one!!!
