Hello, I am using the Stax parser to browse an xml document. Whenever a certain element is found, the attributes of that element are used to call a webservice. I am doing this on a JSP page. Now, I would like to add a stop button to my page. Such that, if the user clicks on the Stop button, the stax parser will stop streaming the info completely. Inorder to read a file in stax, I normally use::
Should I just user parser.close() to stop the xml file from being read? If so, does this mean that parser has to be declared as a class variable a la public XMLStreamReader parser;?
Please note that the page is resubmitting to itself when the parser reads the file. Thanks.
