Hi, I am having a strange problem I need to derive a class from SAXException. When I do so, or even when I do a
"throw new SAXException()", the compiler says:

.java:30: cannot resolve symbol
[javac] symbol : constructor SAXException ()
[javac] location: class org.xml.sax.SAXException
[javac] throw new SAXException();

I don't understand since I am having no problem using XMLReader and SAXParser classes and SAX is even parsing my XML. Then why can't I find the SAXException class. (Running jdk1.4.2 using TOMCAT).

The problem is that all of the constructors for SAXException require something as a parameter -- your code seems to call a constructor with no parameters...
