public void setByteStream (InputStream byteStream)

Set the byte stream for this input source.

The SAX parser will ignore this if there is also a character stream specified, but it will use a byte stream in preference to opening a URI connection itself.

If the application knows the character encoding of the byte stream, it should set it with the setEncoding method.

byteStream    A byte stream containing an XML document or other entity.
