Detailed Description

This abstract class provides the interface for all validators.

This is the simple amount of API that all validators must honor, in order for the scanner to use them to do validation. All validators will actually contain much more functionality than is accessible via this common API, but that functionality requires that you know what type of validator you are dealing with.

Basically, at this level, the primary concern is to be able to query core information about elements and attributes. Adding decls to the validator requires that you go through the derived interface because they all have their own decl types. At this level, we can return information via the base decl classes, from which each validator derives its own decl classes.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

virtual XMLValidator::~XMLValidator ( )
virtual

The derived class should clean up its allocated data, then this class will do the same for data allocated at this level.

XMLValidator::XMLValidator ( XMLErrorReporter *const  errReporter = 0)
protected

Member Function Documentation

virtual bool XMLValidator::checkContent ( XMLElementDecl *const  elemDecl,
QName **const  children,
XMLSize_t  childCount,
XMLSize_t indexFailingChild 
)
pure virtual

The derived class should look up its declaration of the passed element from its element pool.

It should then use the content model description contained in that element declaration to validate that the passed list of child elements are valid for that content model. The count can be zero, indicating no child elements.

Note that whitespace and text content are not validated here. Those are handled by the scanner. So only element ids are provided here.

Parameters
elemDeclThe element whose content is to be checked.
childrenAn array of element QName which represent the elements found within the parent element, i.e. the content to be validated.
childCountThe number of elements in the childIds array. It can be zero if the element had none.
indexFailingChildOn return, it will contain the index of the children failing validation, if the retun value is false
void XMLValidator::emitError ( const XMLValid::Codes  toEmit)

This call is a convenience by which validators can emit errors.

Most of the grunt work of loading the text, getting the current source location, ect... is handled here.

If the loaded text has replacement parameters, then text strings can be passed. These will be used to replace the tokens {0}, {1}, {2}, and {3} in the order passed. So text1 will replace {0}, text2 will replace {1}, and so forth.

textX Up to four replacement parameters. They can be provided as either XMLCh strings, or local code page strings which will be transcoded internally.

Parameters
toEmitThe error code to emit. it must be one of the defined validator error codes.
void XMLValidator::emitError ( const XMLValid::Codes  toEmit,
const XMLCh *const  text1,
const XMLCh *const  text2 = 0,
const XMLCh *const  text3 = 0,
const XMLCh *const  text4 = 0 
)
void XMLValidator::emitError ( const XMLValid::Codes  toEmit,
const char *const  text1,
const char *const  text2 = 0,
const char *const  text3 = 0,
const char *const  text4 = 0 
)
void XMLValidator::emitError ( const XMLValid::Codes  toEmit,
const XMLExcepts::Codes  originalErrorCode,
const XMLCh *const  text1 = 0,
const XMLCh *const  text2 = 0,
const XMLCh *const  text3 = 0,
const XMLCh *const  text4 = 0 
)
virtual void XMLValidator::faultInAttr ( XMLAttr toFill,
const XMLAttDef attDef 
) const
pure virtual

The derived class should fault in the passed XMLAttr value.

It should use the passeed attribute definition (which is passed via the base type so it must often be downcast to the appropriate type for the derived validator class), to fill in the passed attribute. This is done as a performance enhancement since the derived class has more direct access to the information.

const XMLBufferMgr * XMLValidator::getBufMgr ( ) const
protected
XMLBufferMgr * XMLValidator::getBufMgr ( )
protected
virtual Grammar* XMLValidator::getGrammar ( ) const
pure virtual

Retrieve the Grammar used.

const ReaderMgr * XMLValidator::getReaderMgr ( ) const
protected
ReaderMgr * XMLValidator::getReaderMgr ( )
protected
const XMLScanner * XMLValidator::getScanner ( ) const
protected
XMLScanner * XMLValidator::getScanner ( )
protected
virtual bool XMLValidator::handlesDTD ( ) const
pure virtual

This method allows the scanner to ask the validator if it handles DTDs or not.

virtual bool XMLValidator::handlesSchema ( ) const
pure virtual

This method allows the scanner to ask the validator if it handles Schema or not.

virtual void XMLValidator::postParseValidation ( )
pure virtual

This method is called by the scanner after the parse has completed.

It gives the validator a chance to check certain things that can only be checked after the whole document has been parsed, such as referential integrity of ID/IDREF pairs and so forth. The validator should just issue errors for any problems it finds.

virtual void XMLValidator::preContentValidation ( bool  reuseGrammar,
bool  validateDefAttr = false 
)
pure virtual

This method is called by the scanner after a Grammar is scanned.

virtual bool XMLValidator::requiresNamespaces ( ) const
pure virtual

The derived class should return a boolean that indicates whether it requires namespace processing or not.

Some do and some allow it to be optional. This flag is used to control whether the client code's requests to disable namespace processing can be honored or not.

virtual void XMLValidator::reset ( )
pure virtual

This method is called by the scanner before a new document is about to start.

It gives the validator a change to reset itself in preparation for another validation pass.

void XMLValidator::setErrorReporter ( XMLErrorReporter *const  errorReporter)

This method is called to set an error reporter on the validator via which it will report any errors it sees during parsing or validation.

This is generally called by the owning scanner.

Parameters
errorReporterA pointer to the error reporter to use. This is not adopted, just referenced so the caller remains responsible for its cleanup, if any.
virtual void XMLValidator::setGrammar ( Grammar *  aGrammar)
pure virtual

Set the Grammar.

void XMLValidator::setScannerInfo ( XMLScanner *const  owningScanner,
ReaderMgr *const  readerMgr,
XMLBufferMgr *const  bufMgr 
)
Parameters
owningScannerThis is a pointer to the scanner to which the validator belongs. The validator will often need to query state data from the scanner.
readerMgrThis is a pointer to the reader manager that is being used by the scanner.
bufMgrThis is the buffer manager of the scanner. This is provided as a convenience so that the validator doesn't have to create its own buffer manager during the parse process.
virtual void XMLValidator::validateAttrValue ( const XMLAttDef attDef,
const XMLCh *const  attrValue,
bool  preValidation = false,
const XMLElementDecl elemDecl = 0 
)
pure virtual

The derived class should apply any rules to the passed attribute value that are above and beyond those defined by XML 1.0.

The scanner itself will impose XML 1.0 rules, based on the type of the attribute. This will generally be used to check things such as range checks and other datatype related validation.

If the value breaks any rules as defined by the derived class, it should just issue errors as usual.

virtual void XMLValidator::validateElement ( const XMLElementDecl elemDef)
pure virtual

The derived class should apply any rules to the passed element decl that are above and beyond those defined by XML 1.0.

If the value breaks any rules as defined by the derived class, it should just issue errors as usual.
