Woodstox : Handling Exceptions Related to Mal-Formed XML

Overview

In this article, we shall demonstrate handling of exception when XML is not well formed.

Create employee.xml as shown below.

Note that this XML document is not well-formed e.g. the ‘salary’ end element is not properly closed (see line 4 below).

Create TestXmlException class.

Note that
XMLStreamException
is caught and error message is redirected to output console (see lines 36-39 below).

Woodstox shall throw the
XMLStreamException
when mal-formed employee.xml (defined above) is parsed.

The output of the program demonstrating that Woodstox throws an exception when parsing the mal-formed employee.xml is shown below.

Note that detailed message is provided by Woodstox (see lines 6-7 below).
