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.
The XMLFilterImpl helper class provides a convenient base
for creating SAX2 filters, by passing on all
ErrorHandler events automatically.

parent- The parent reader.
getParentXMLReader getParent()Get 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.
