SAX 2048 byte issue on Java XML parsing

SAX parser code has an issue for files or messages of greater than 2048 bytes. Parser only reads in 2048 bytes at a time which could lead to an error if the 2048-byte split the data element.

The solution to this is to introduce a temporary variable on the callback method. Here is code snippet.

public void startElement(String uri, String localName, String qName,
Attributes attributes) throws SAXException {

public void startElement (String uri, String localName, String qName, Attributes attr) throws SAXException{

     value = new StringBuffer();     if(qName.equalsIgnoreCase(“clientDets”)) {          ncstClient = new NcstClient();          ncstClient.setType(attributes.getValue(“type”));     }}

public void characters(char[] ch, int start, int length) throws SAXException {     value.append(new String(ch, start, length));}
