The abstract class ContentHandler is the superclass
of all classes that read an Object from a
An application does not generally call the
getContent method in this class directly. Instead, an
application calls the getContent method in class
URL or in URLConnection.
The application's content handler factory (an instance of a class that
implements the interface ContentHandlerFactory set
up by a call to setContentHandler) is
called with a String giving the MIME type of the
object being received on the socket. The factory returns an
instance of a subclass of ContentHandler, and its
getContent method is called to create the object.
