Abstract

When using a SAX Parser to parse the XML, it is likely that if you are only interested in one of the many processes, or only a subset of the XML in general, that the extra XML that is not pertinent to you will be discarded, while the relevant data will be stored in memory for some use or manipulation. Upon serialization of the relevant data, all information deemed non-pertinent by your process will be lost. This method preserves this information.
