Thanks for the help Jason. Here's the reason for my query...

I am using the InputStream version of the DOMBuilder. The reason for this is
so that I can handle URL retrieval in a proprietary way. When the parser
wants to retreive the DTD, it has no idea of the base url and seems to
substitute the current local directory. I therefore need to set an
EntityResolver so that I can retrieve the DTD and pass it back to the

I've written my own DOMBuilder for now with a setEntityResolver method.
