FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(args); --------------> ???
Usually this line tends to handle the lower layer functionality of reading data from a file in a stream of bytes.
However in your specific case seems that after reading the file you need to parse the contents as xml content with a SAX parser which is what you are attempting here
parser.parse(is, this); ----------------------> ???
While parsing the contents in SAX based parsing you encounter callbacks indicating various situations like begin-of-an-xml tag,end-of-xml-tag along with associated data based on which you can do some meaning ful operation.
Hope this helps.

Clarifying my statement
"Usually this line tends to handle the lower layer functionality of reading data from a file in a stream of bytes. "
FileInputStream has functionality to accomplish the reading of the file however in your code snippet you are not invoking any of that explicitly rather the parser I think will invoke it for you.
