Problems with SAX parser in Java (SAX2 driver class javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser found but cannot be loaded)

I am new to XML parsing, and I'm trying to parse an XML file which is
passed as a BufferedReader object.
I have followed the steps described in a Javaworld article
( which
seems quite simple. I've also downloaded the latest Web Services
Developer Pack, installed it, and added the jar-file to the classpath
in JDeveloper.

After programming the parser class, I get an error message which I
can't figure out of:
"Unexpected error: SAX2 driver class javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser found
but cannot be loaded"

Why can't it be loaded? Any ideas?

Here is a sample of my code:

* this is the class that calls the XML parser (myXMLParser)
* I beleive the error must lie here somewhere, or perhaps in the
myXMLParser test = new myXMLParser();
String parserclass =
System.getProperty("org.xml.sax.driver","javax.xml .parsers.SAXParser");
* I beleive the error comes on this next line. 'parserclass' is
* identified as "javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser", which is found but
* be loaded? What could be wrong? It is added to the classpath.
XMLReader xr = XMLReaderFactory.createXMLReader(parserclass);
// 'br' (below) is the BufferedReader object of an XML file
xr.parse(new InputSource(br));

Regards, PML
