Why can't I use "new Digester()"?

I am trying to use "org.apache.struts.digester.Digester". When I use it, my code compiles with no problem, but it can not continue when it reached the "Digester digester = new Digester();".
It is a empty constructor in Digester class. What wrong with it? Thanks!

Please review the JavaRanch Naming Policy. You will need to re-register with a Display name that conforms with the naming policy.
Thanks for your cooperation.
As for your question, the Digester() constructor calls the superclass constructor (org.xml.sax.HandlerBase). This is also an empty constructor which means it calls the no-args constructor of Object. There must be something else causing your problem. Perhaps if you post a few more lines of code, we can get a better idea of what's actually happening.
Please don't forget to re-register. Thanks!
