URGENT - Setting feature for SAX Parser in Xerces.

Hi Friends,
I am writing an application in Java for parsing an XML document against a schema using Xerces 1.4.1. I am giving a snippet of my code in which I have set some features.
XMLReader parser = (XMLReader)Class.forName(PARSER_NAME).newInstance();
parser.setFeature( "", true);
parser.setFeature( "", true);
parser.setFeature( "", true);
parser.setFeature( "", true);
(1) First of all the following exception is thrown -
at org.apache.xerces.framework.XMLParser.setFeature(
at org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser.setFeature(
at SchemaChecker.main(
(2) When I commented the line
parser.setFeature( "", true);
It says that parsing has been done successfully. But it doesn't as I specifically made mistakes in the XML and the parser could not find that.
Please help me out for parsing XML against Schema using Xerces.
Hope to get an immediate response.

I am looking at Xerces 1.3.1 - source code for
in the org.apache.xerces.framework package. I find the following array of String:
/** Features recognized by this parser. */
private static final String RECOGNIZED_FEATURES[] = {
// SAX2 core
// Xerces
I suggest you look at the source code for your version and see if the "schema-full-checking" type is there.
