Extending RSSOwl to parse GeoRSS Information

    I am working on a project that needs to parse GeoRSS formated documents in addition to other RSS formated documents. I have taken an extremely brief look at the source, specifically the net.sourceforge.rssowl.dao.feedparser package and at first glance it seems that I could extend one of the Parsers to support the RSS elements. Before I attempt to do this, has there been any work in this regard, and if not does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about this?

      I recommend you rather look at the parser in RSSOwl 2. It offers extension points that can easily be used to allow parsing of new elements. See http://wiki.rssowl.org/index.php/Build_RSSOwl_2.0 for more details. The benefit is that you don't have to recompile RSSOwl to use this extension. Just drop it into an existing RSSOwl 2 and use it.
