Role of Parser in SAX !!

I have some basic doubts regarding the SAX implementation and role of  Parsers.

The documents I referred do not give me a clear picture of the 
functionality of each component. 

The following information is taken from ""

David megginson says,

" To create a very simple Java-based SAX application,
you first need to download and install at least two Java libraries, 
making certain that you add all of them to your CLASSPATH 

  1 the SAX interfaces and classes;
  2 and at least one XML parser that supports SAX (or a parser and a 
    separate third-party SAX driver for it).  "

Is there any document available, which explains the architecture of SAX
implementation and role of "XML Parser", used with the implementation?
