Thanks, but how can I do that.

Warnings, errors and fatalErrors are handled by my own defined 
functions in the parser. They append the warning/error to a list 
which can be read by the main program when the parser returns.  How 
can I raise an SAXException so that the parser will return without 
halting the program ?
