Is there a way to use the java XML parser to to parse an XML document that is contained in a String?
Currentlt my program creates a temp,xml file from the String variable and the uses the SAX parser to parse the file but I am sure there is a better way to do this.

Create a StrignReader out of the XML in the String

Reader is=new StringReader(xmlString)

parser.setFeature( "",true);
parser.setFeature( "",VALIDATION);
parser.setFeature( "",true);
parser.setFeature( "",true);
parser.setFeature("", false);
parser.setFeature("", false);

parser.parse(new InputSource(is));
