I had a look at a possible implementation for SAXOutputter. Firing DTD events
seems quite easy: Just create a SAX parser instance, parse the DTD string and
here are the events! You just have to stop the parsing once the DTD parsing is
The problem is "create a SAX parser instance": The code to do that is hidden
Would it make sense to extract this code in a separated class (e.g.
org.jdom.util.Parsing)? With the JSR, will JDOM continue to support non-JAXP
Last solution: Add a nested sub-class of SAXBuilder to SAXOutputter to reuse
the parser creation code?
Jason, which direction do you think we should go?
