public interface XMLFilter extends org.xml.sax.XMLReader
An XML filter is like an XML reader, except that it obtains its events from another XML reader rather than a primary source like an XML document or database. Filters can modify a stream of events as they pass on to the final application.

Get the parent reader.
Set the parent reader.
void setParent(org.xml.sax.XMLReader parent)
This method allows the application to link the filter to a parent reader (which may be another filter). The argument may not be null.
parent- The parent reader.
This method allows the application to query the parent reader (which may be another filter). It is generally a bad idea to perform any operations on the parent reader directly: they should all pass through this filter.
