public class CoreDocumentImpl
extends ParentNode
implements Document

The Document interface represents the entire HTML or XML document. Conceptually, it is the root of the document tree, and provides the primary access to the document's data.

Since elements, text nodes, comments, processing instructions, etc. cannot exist outside the context of a Document, the Document interface also contains the factory methods needed to create these objects. The Node objects created have a ownerDocument attribute which associates them with the Document within whose context they were created.

The CoreDocumentImpl class only implements the DOM Core. Additional modules are supported by the more complete DocumentImpl subclass.

Note: When any node in the document is serialized, the entire document is serialized along with it.

changes

protected int changes
Number of alterations made to this document since its creation. Serves as a "dirty bit" so that live objects such as NodeList can recognize when an alteration has been made and discard its cached state information.

Any method that alters the tree structure MUST cause or be accompanied by a call to changed(), to inform it that any outstanding NodeLists may have to be updated.

(Required because NodeList is simultaneously "live" and integer- indexed -- a bad decision in the DOM's design.)

Note that changes which do not affect the tree's structure -- changing the node's name, for example -- do _not_ have to call changed().

Alternative implementation would be to use a cryptographic Digest value rather than a count. This would have the advantage that "harmless" changes (those producing equal() trees) would not force NodeList to resynchronize. Disadvantage is that it's slightly more prone to "false negatives", though that's the difference between "wildly unlikely" and "absurdly unlikely". IF we start maintaining digests, we should consider taking advantage of them. Note: This used to be done a node basis, so that we knew what subtree changed. But since only DeepNodeList really use this today, the gain appears to be really small compared to the cost of having an int on every (parent) node plus having to walk up the tree all the way to the root to mark the branch as changed everytime a node is changed. So we now have a single counter global to the document. It means that some objects may flush their cache more often than necessary, but this makes nodes smaller and only the document needs to be marked as changed.

Constructor Detail

CoreDocumentImpl

public CoreDocumentImpl()
NON-DOM: Actually creating a Document is outside the DOM's spec, since it has to operate in terms of a particular implementation.

CoreDocumentImpl

public CoreDocumentImpl(boolean grammarAccess)
Constructor.

CoreDocumentImpl

public CoreDocumentImpl(DocumentType doctype)
For DOM2 support. The createDocument factory method is in DOMImplementation.

CoreDocumentImpl

public CoreDocumentImpl(DocumentType doctype,
                        boolean grammarAccess)
For DOM2 support.
Method Detail

getOwnerDocument

public final Document getOwnerDocument()
Description copied from interface: Node
The Document object associated with this node. This is also the Document object used to create new nodes. When this node is a Document or a DocumentType which is not used with any Document yet, this is null.
Specified by:
getOwnerDocument in interface Node
Overrides:
getOwnerDocument in class ParentNode

getNodeType

public short getNodeType()
Returns the node type.
Specified by:
getNodeType in interface Node
Overrides:
getNodeType in class NodeImpl

getNodeName

public java.lang.String getNodeName()
Returns the node name.
Specified by:
getNodeName in interface Node
Overrides:
getNodeName in class NodeImpl

cloneNode

public Node cloneNode(boolean deep)
Deep-clone a document, including fixing ownerDoc for the cloned children. Note that this requires bypassing the WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR protection. I've chosen to implement it by calling importNode which is DOM Level 2.
Specified by:
cloneNode in interface Node
Overrides:
cloneNode in class ParentNode
Parameters:
deep - boolean, iff true replicate children
Returns:
org.w3c.dom.Node

cloneNode

protected void cloneNode(CoreDocumentImpl newdoc,

internal method to share code with subclass

insertBefore

public Node insertBefore(Node newChild,
                         Node refChild)
                  throws DOMException
Since a Document may contain at most one top-level Element child, and at most one DocumentType declaraction, we need to subclass our add-children methods to implement this constraint. Since appendChild() is implemented as insertBefore(,null), altering the latter fixes both.

While I'm doing so, I've taken advantage of the opportunity to cache documentElement and docType so we don't have to search for them. REVISIT: According to the spec it is not allowed to alter neither the document element nor the document type in any way

Specified by:
insertBefore in interface Node
Overrides:
insertBefore in class ParentNode
Following copied from interface: org.w3c.dom.Node
Parameters:
newChildThe - node to insert.
refChildThe - reference node, i.e., the node before which the new node must be inserted.
Returns:
The node being inserted.
Throws:
DOMException - HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR: Raised if this node is of a type that does not allow children of the type of the newChild node, or if the node to insert is one of this node's ancestors.
WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: Raised if newChild was created from a different document than the one that created this node.
NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR: Raised if this node is readonly or if the parent of the node being inserted is readonly.
NOT_FOUND_ERR: Raised if refChild is not a child of this node.

removeChild

public Node removeChild(Node oldChild)
                 throws DOMException
Since insertBefore caches the docElement (and, currently, docType), removeChild has to know how to undo the cache REVISIT: According to the spec it is not allowed to alter neither the document element nor the document type in any way
Specified by:
removeChild in interface Node
Overrides:
removeChild in class ParentNode
Following copied from interface: org.w3c.dom.Node

public Node replaceChild(Node newChild,
                         Node oldChild)
                  throws DOMException
Since we cache the docElement (and, currently, docType), replaceChild has to update the cache REVISIT: According to the spec it is not allowed to alter neither the document element nor the document type in any way
Specified by:
replaceChild in interface Node
Overrides:
replaceChild in class ParentNode
Following copied from interface: org.w3c.dom.Node
Parameters:

oldChildThe - node being replaced in the list.
Returns:
The node replaced.
Throws:

Introduced in DOM Level 2 Returns the Element whose ID is given by elementId. If no such element exists, returns null. Behavior is not defined if more than one element has this ID.

Note: The DOM implementation must have information that says which attributes are of type ID. Attributes with the name "ID" are not of type ID unless so defined. Implementations that do not know whether attributes are of type ID or not are expected to return null.

getIdentifiers

public java.util.Enumeration getIdentifiers()
Returns an enumeration registered of identifier names.

createElementNS

public Element createElementNS(java.lang.String namespaceURI,
                               java.lang.String qualifiedName)
                        throws DOMException
Introduced in DOM Level 2.

Creates an element of the given qualified name and namespace URI. If the given namespaceURI is null or an empty string and the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml", the created element is bound to the predefined namespace "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" [Namespaces].

Specified by:
createElementNS in interface Document
Parameters:
namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the element to create.
qualifiedName - The qualified name of the element type to instantiate.
Returns:
Element A new Element object with the following attributes:
Throws:
DOMException - INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified name contains an invalid character.
DOMException - NAMESPACE_ERR: Raised if the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml" and the namespaceURI is neither null nor an empty string nor "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace", or if the qualifiedName has a prefix different from "xml" and the namespaceURI is null or an empty string.

public Attr createAttributeNS(java.lang.String namespaceURI,
                              java.lang.String qualifiedName)
                       throws DOMException
Introduced in DOM Level 2.

Creates an attribute of the given qualified name and namespace URI. If the given namespaceURI is null or an empty string and the qualifiedName has a prefix that is "xml", the created element is bound to the predefined namespace "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" [Namespaces].

Specified by:
createAttributeNS in interface Document
Parameters:
namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the attribute to create. When it is null or an empty string, this method behaves like createAttribute.
qualifiedName - The qualified name of the attribute to instantiate.
Returns:
Attr A new Attr object.
Throws:
DOMException - INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR: Raised if the specified name contains an invalid character.

getElementsByTagNameNS

public NodeList getElementsByTagNameNS(java.lang.String namespaceURI,
                                       java.lang.String localName)
Introduced in DOM Level 2.

Returns a NodeList of all the Elements with a given local name and namespace URI in the order in which they would be encountered in a preorder traversal of the Document tree.

Specified by:
getElementsByTagNameNS in interface Document
Parameters:
namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the elements to match on. The special value "*" matches all namespaces. When it is null or an empty string, this method behaves like getElementsByTagName.
localName - The local name of the elements to match on. The special value "*" matches all local names.

clone

public java.lang.Object clone()
                       throws java.lang.CloneNotSupportedException
Clone.
Overrides:
clone in class java.lang.Object

isXMLName

public static boolean isXMLName(java.lang.String s)
Check the string against XML's definition of acceptable names for elements and attributes and so on using the XMLCharacterProperties utility class

isKidOK

protected boolean isKidOK(Node parent,
                          Node child)
Uses the kidOK lookup table to check whether the proposed tree structure is legal.

changed

protected void changed()
Denotes that this node has changed.
Overrides:
changed in class NodeImpl

changes

protected int changes()
Returns the number of changes to this node.
Overrides:
changes in class NodeImpl

setUserData

protected void setUserData(NodeImpl n,
                           java.lang.Object data)
Store user data related to a given node This is a place where we could use weak references! Indeed, the node here won't be GC'ed as long as some user data is attached to it, since the userData table will have a reference to the node.

getUserData

protected java.lang.Object getUserData(NodeImpl n)
Retreive user data related to a given node
