XML validation

Hi Friends,

In my server, many types of XML requests come from clients, and I parse it to DOM Document.
Now I found that many of these request from client are comes with invalid credentials (Username, password incorrect), and still I am converting it to DOM Document.

Is there any way to check credentials while parsing XML, so that I can improve performance of server?

Thanks in advanceā€¦

No, that's not what XML parsers are for.

But in a real application you would check the authentication before you even started parsing the XML.
I agree. Here's the link:
