Hi all,

when I try to compile the example program from the javaworld article, I
get the following error msg:
PrettyPrinter.java:15: class org.xml.sax.InputSource not found in void

How can I fix it?

Thanks, Phil

The code is as follows:

import java.io.*;
import org.jdom.*;
import org.jdom.input.*;
import org.jdom.output.*;

public class PrettyPrinter {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
  // Assume filename argument
  String filename = args[0];

  try {
    // Build the document with SAX and Xerces, no validation
    SAXBuilder builder = new SAXBuilder();
    // Create the document
    Document doc = builder.build(new File(filename));

    // Output the document, use standard formatter
    XMLOutputter fmt = new XMLOutputter();
      fmt.output(doc, System.out);
  catch (Exception e) {
