public class ElementDefinitionImpl
extends ParentNode

NON-DOM CLASS: Describe one of the Elements (and its associated Attributes) defined in this Document Type.

I've included this in Level 1 purely as an anchor point for default attributes. In Level 2 it should enable the ChildRule support.

attributes

protected NamedNodeMapImpl attributes
Default attributes.
Constructor Detail

ElementDefinitionImpl

public ElementDefinitionImpl(CoreDocumentImpl ownerDocument,
                             java.lang.String name)
Factory constructor.
Method Detail

getNodeType

public short getNodeType()
A short integer indicating what type of node this is. The named constants for this value are defined in the org.w3c.dom.Node interface.
Overrides:
getNodeType in class NodeImpl

getNodeName

public java.lang.String getNodeName()
Returns the element definition name
Overrides:
getNodeName in class NodeImpl

cloneNode

public Node cloneNode(boolean deep)
Replicate this object.
Overrides:
cloneNode in class ParentNode
Following copied from class: org.apache.xerces.dom.ChildNode
See Also:

Example: Cloning a Text node will copy both the node and the text it contains.

Example: Cloning something that has children -- Element or Attr, for example -- will _not_ clone those children unless a "deep clone" has been requested. A shallow clone of an Attr node will yield an empty Attr of the same name.

NOTE: Clones will always be read/write, even if the node being cloned is read-only, to permit applications using only the DOM API to obtain editable copies of locked portions of the tree.


getAttributes

public NamedNodeMap getAttributes()
Query the attributes defined on this Element.

In the base implementation this Map simply contains Attribute objects representing the defaults. In a more serious implementation, it would contain AttributeDefinitionImpl objects for all declared Attributes, indicating which are Default, DefaultFixed, Implicit and/or Required.

Overrides:
getAttributes in class NodeImpl
Returns:
org.w3c.dom.NamedNodeMap containing org.w3c.dom.Attribute
