Is there a way to use the java XML parser to to parse an XML document that is contained in a String?
Currentlt my program creates a temp,xml file from the String variable and the uses the SAX parser to parse the file but I am sure there is a better way to do this.

Create a StrignReader out of the XML in the String

Reader is=new StringReader(xmlString)

parser.setProperty("http://apache.org/xml/properties/schema/external-noNamespaceSchemaLocation",schemaFileLocation);
parser.setFeature( "http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/schema",true);
parser.setFeature("http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/schema",false);
parser.setContentHandler(yourContentHandler);
parser.setErrorHandler(yourErrorHandler);
parser.setFeature( "http://xml.org/sax/features/validation",VALIDATION);
parser.setFeature( "http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces",true);
parser.setFeature("http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/schema",true);
parser.setFeature( "http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/schema-full-checking",true);
parser.setFeature("http://apache.org/xml/features/continue-after-fatal-error", false);
parser.setFeature("http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/dynamic", false);

parser.parse(new InputSource(is));
