Detailed Description

This abstract class is a callback mechanism for the scanner.

By creating a derivative of this class and plugging into the scanner, the scanner will call back on the object's methods to entity events.

This class is primarily for use by those writing their own parser classes. If you use the standard parser classes, DOMParser and SAXParser, you won't use this API. You will instead use a similar mechanism defined by the SAX API, called EntityResolver.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void XMLEntityHandler::endInputSource ( const InputSource inputSource  )  [pure virtual]

This method get called after the scanner has finished reading from the given input source while processing external entity references.

Parameters:
inputSource The input source for the entity

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.

virtual bool XMLEntityHandler::expandSystemId ( const XMLCh *const   systemId,
XMLBuffer &  toFill 
) [pure virtual]

This method allows the passes the scanned systemId to the entity handler, thereby giving it a chance to provide any customized handling like resolving relative path names.

The scanner first calls this method before calling resolveEntity.

Parameters:
systemId The system id extracted by the scanner from the input source.
toFill The buffer in which the fully expanded system id needs to be stored.

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.

virtual void XMLEntityHandler::resetEntities (  )  [pure virtual]

This method allows the entity handler to reset itself, so that it can be used again.

It is called prior to a new document parse operation.

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.

virtual InputSource* XMLEntityHandler::resolveEntity ( const XMLCh *const   publicId,
const XMLCh *const   systemId,
const XMLCh *const   baseURI = 0 
) [pure virtual]

This method allows the entity handler to provide customized application specific entity resolution.

This method is defined by SAX 1.0 API.

Only one resolveEntity method will be used. If both setEntityResolver and setXMLEntityResolver are called, then the last one is used.

Parameters:
publicId A const pointer to a Unicode string representing the public id of the entity just parsed.
systemId A const pointer to a Unicode string representing the system id of the entity just parsed.
baseURI A const pointer to a Unicode string representing the base URI of the entity just parsed, or null if there is no base URI.
Returns:
The value returned by the SAX resolveEntity method or NULL otherwise to indicate no processing was done. The returned InputSource is owned by the parser which is responsible to clean up the memory.

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.

virtual InputSource* XMLEntityHandler::resolveEntity ( XMLResourceIdentifier resourceIdentifier  )  [pure virtual]

This method allows the entity handler to provide customized application specific entity resolution.

Only one resolveEntity method will be used. If both setEntityResolver and setXMLEntityResolver are called, then the last one is used.

Parameters:
resourceIdentifier An object containing the type of resource to be resolved and the associated data members corresponding to this type.
Returns:
The value returned by the resolveEntity method or NULL otherwise to indicate no processing was done. The returned InputSource is owned by the parser which is responsible to clean up the memory.

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.

virtual void XMLEntityHandler::startInputSource ( const InputSource inputSource  )  [pure virtual]

This method will be called before the scanner starts reading from an input source while processing external entity references.

Parameters:
inputSource The external input source.

Implemented in SAXParser, and XercesDOMParser.
