public abstract class BaseMarkupSerializer
extends java.lang.Object
implements ContentHandler, DocumentHandler, LexicalHandler, DTDHandler, DeclHandler, DOMSerializer, Serializer

Base class for a serializer supporting both DOM and SAX pretty serializing of XML/HTML/XHTML documents. Derives classes perform the method-specific serializing, this class provides the common serializing mechanisms.

The serializer must be initialized with the proper writer and output format before it can be used by calling #init. The serializer can be reused any number of times, but cannot be used concurrently by two threads.

If an output stream is used, the encoding is taken from the output format (defaults to UTF-8). If a writer is used, make sure the writer uses the same encoding (if applies) as specified in the output format.

The serializer supports both DOM and SAX. DOM serializing is done by calling serialize(org.w3c.dom.Element) and SAX serializing is done by firing SAX events and using the serializer as a document handler. This also applies to derived class.

If an I/O exception occurs while serializing, the serializer will not throw an exception directly, but only throw it at the end of serializing (either DOM or SAX's DocumentHandler.endDocument().

For elements that are not specified as whitespace preserving, the serializer will potentially break long text lines at space boundaries, indent lines, and serialize elements on separate lines. Line terminators will be regarded as spaces, and spaces at beginning of line will be stripped.

When indenting, the serializer is capable of detecting seemingly element content, and serializing these elements indented on separate lines. An element is serialized indented when it is the first or last child of an element, or immediate following or preceding another element.

characters

public void characters(char[] chars,
                       int start,
                       int length)
                throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Receive notification of character data.

The Parser will call this method to report each chunk of character data. SAX parsers may return all contiguous character data in a single chunk, or they may split it into several chunks; however, all of the characters in any single event must come from the same external entity so that the Locator provides useful information.

The application must not attempt to read from the array outside of the specified range.

Note that some parsers will report whitespace in element content using the ignorableWhitespace method rather than this one (validating parsers must do so).

Specified by:
characters in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
ch - The characters from the XML document.
start - The start position in the array.
length - The number of characters to read from the array.
Throws:
SAXException - Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.
See Also:
ContentHandler.ignorableWhitespace(char[], int, int), Locator

ignorableWhitespace

public void ignorableWhitespace(char[] chars,
                                int start,
                                int length)
                         throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Receive notification of ignorable whitespace in element content.

Validating Parsers must use this method to report each chunk of whitespace in element content (see the W3C XML 1.0 recommendation, section 2.10): non-validating parsers may also use this method if they are capable of parsing and using content models.

SAX parsers may return all contiguous whitespace in a single chunk, or they may split it into several chunks; however, all of the characters in any single event must come from the same external entity, so that the Locator provides useful information.

The application must not attempt to read from the array outside of the specified range.

Specified by:
ignorableWhitespace in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
ch - The characters from the XML document.
start - The start position in the array.
length - The number of characters to read from the array.
Throws:
SAXException - Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

public final void processingInstruction(java.lang.String target,
                                        java.lang.String code)
                                 throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Receive notification of a processing instruction.

The Parser will invoke this method once for each processing instruction found: note that processing instructions may occur before or after the main document element.

A SAX parser must never report an XML declaration (XML 1.0, section 2.8) or a text declaration (XML 1.0, section 4.3.1) using this method.

Specified by:
processingInstruction in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
target - The processing instruction target.
data - The processing instruction data, or null if none was supplied. The data does not include any whitespace separating it from the target.
Throws:
SAXException - Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

processingInstructionIO

public void processingInstructionIO(java.lang.String target,
                                    java.lang.String code)
                             throws java.io.IOException

comment

public void comment(char[] chars,
                    int start,
                    int length)
             throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler

startCDATA

public void startCDATA()
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler
Report the start of a CDATA section.

The contents of the CDATA section will be reported through the regular characters event; this event is intended only to report the boundary.

Specified by:
startCDATA in interface LexicalHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.
See Also:
LexicalHandler.endCDATA()

endPreserving

public void endPreserving()

endDocument

public void endDocument()
                 throws SAXException
Called at the end of the document to wrap it up. Will flush the output stream and throw an exception if any I/O error occured while serializing.
Specified by:
endDocument in interface ContentHandler
Throws:
SAXException - An I/O exception occured during serializing

startEntity

public void startEntity(java.lang.String name)
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler
Report the beginning of some internal and external XML entities.

The reporting of parameter entities (including the external DTD subset) is optional, and SAX2 drivers that support LexicalHandler may not support it; you can use the http://xml.org/sax/features/lexical-handler/parameter-entities feature to query or control the reporting of parameter entities.

General entities are reported with their regular names, parameter entities have '%' prepended to their names, and the external DTD subset has the pseudo-entity name "[dtd]".

When a SAX2 driver is providing these events, all other events must be properly nested within start/end entity events. There is no additional requirement that events from DeclHandler or DTDHandler be properly ordered.

Note that skipped entities will be reported through the skippedEntity event, which is part of the ContentHandler interface.

Because of the streaming event model that SAX uses, some entity boundaries cannot be reported under any circumstances:

These will be silently expanded, with no indication of where the original entity boundaries were.

Note also that the boundaries of character references (which are not really entities anyway) are not reported.

All start/endEntity events must be properly nested.

Specified by:
startEntity in interface LexicalHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
Parameters:
name - The name of the entity. If it is a parameter entity, the name will begin with '%', and if it is the external DTD subset, it will be "[dtd]".
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.
See Also:
LexicalHandler.endEntity(java.lang.String), DeclHandler.internalEntityDecl(java.lang.String, java.lang.String), DeclHandler.externalEntityDecl(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

endEntity

public void endEntity(java.lang.String name)
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler
Report the end of an entity.
Specified by:
endEntity in interface LexicalHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
Parameters:
name - The name of the entity that is ending.
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.
See Also:
LexicalHandler.startEntity(java.lang.String)

setDocumentLocator

public void setDocumentLocator(Locator locator)
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Receive an object for locating the origin of SAX document events.

SAX parsers are strongly encouraged (though not absolutely required) to supply a locator: if it does so, it must supply the locator to the application by invoking this method before invoking any of the other methods in the ContentHandler interface.

The locator allows the application to determine the end position of any document-related event, even if the parser is not reporting an error. Typically, the application will use this information for reporting its own errors (such as character content that does not match an application's business rules). The information returned by the locator is probably not sufficient for use with a search engine.

Note that the locator will return correct information only during the invocation of the events in this interface. The application should not attempt to use it at any other time.

Specified by:
setDocumentLocator in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
locator - An object that can return the location of any SAX document event.
See Also:
Locator

skippedEntity

public void skippedEntity(java.lang.String name)
                   throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Receive notification of a skipped entity.

The Parser will invoke this method once for each entity skipped. Non-validating processors may skip entities if they have not seen the declarations (because, for example, the entity was declared in an external DTD subset). All processors may skip external entities, depending on the values of the http://xml.org/sax/features/external-general-entities and the http://xml.org/sax/features/external-parameter-entities properties.

Specified by:
skippedEntity in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
name - The name of the skipped entity. If it is a parameter entity, the name will begin with '%', and if it is the external DTD subset, it will be the string "[dtd]".
Throws:
SAXException - Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

startPrefixMapping

public void startPrefixMapping(java.lang.String prefix,
                               java.lang.String uri)
                        throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
Begin the scope of a prefix-URI Namespace mapping.

The information from this event is not necessary for normal Namespace processing: the SAX XML reader will automatically replace prefixes for element and attribute names when the http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces feature is true (the default).

There are cases, however, when applications need to use prefixes in character data or in attribute values, where they cannot safely be expanded automatically; the start/endPrefixMapping event supplies the information to the application to expand prefixes in those contexts itself, if necessary.

Note that start/endPrefixMapping events are not guaranteed to be properly nested relative to each-other: all startPrefixMapping events will occur before the corresponding startElement event, and all endPrefixMapping events will occur after the corresponding endElement event, but their order is not otherwise guaranteed.

There should never be start/endPrefixMapping events for the "xml" prefix, since it is predeclared and immutable.

Specified by:
startPrefixMapping in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
prefix - The Namespace prefix being declared.
uri - The Namespace URI the prefix is mapped to.
Throws:
SAXException - The client may throw an exception during processing.
See Also:
ContentHandler.endPrefixMapping(java.lang.String), ContentHandler.startElement(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, org.xml.sax.Attributes)

endPrefixMapping

public void endPrefixMapping(java.lang.String prefix)
                      throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: ContentHandler
End the scope of a prefix-URI mapping.

See startPrefixMapping for details. This event will always occur after the corresponding endElement event, but the order of endPrefixMapping events is not otherwise guaranteed.

Specified by:
endPrefixMapping in interface ContentHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ContentHandler
Parameters:
prefix - The prefix that was being mapping.
Throws:
SAXException - The client may throw an exception during processing.
See Also:
ContentHandler.startPrefixMapping(java.lang.String, java.lang.String), ContentHandler.endElement(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

startDTD

public final void startDTD(java.lang.String name,
                           java.lang.String publicId,
                           java.lang.String systemId)
                    throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler
Report the start of DTD declarations, if any.

This method is intended to report the beginning of the DOCTYPE declaration; if the document has no DOCTYPE declaration, this method will not be invoked.

All declarations reported through DTDHandler or DeclHandler events must appear between the startDTD and endDTD events. Declarations are assumed to belong to the internal DTD subset unless they appear between startEntity and endEntity events. Comments and processing instructions from the DTD should also be reported between the startDTD and endDTD events, in their original order of (logical) occurrence; they are not required to appear in their correct locations relative to DTDHandler or DeclHandler events, however.

Note that the start/endDTD events will appear within the start/endDocument events from ContentHandler and before the first startElement event.

Specified by:
startDTD in interface LexicalHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
Parameters:
name - The document type name.
publicId - The declared public identifier for the external DTD subset, or null if none was declared.
systemId - The declared system identifier for the external DTD subset, or null if none was declared.
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.
See Also:
LexicalHandler.endDTD(), LexicalHandler.startEntity(java.lang.String)

endDTD

public void endDTD()
Description copied from interface: LexicalHandler
Report the end of DTD declarations.

This method is intended to report the end of the DOCTYPE declaration; if the document has no DOCTYPE declaration, this method will not be invoked.

Specified by:
endDTD in interface LexicalHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.
See Also:
LexicalHandler.startDTD(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

elementDecl

public void elementDecl(java.lang.String name,
                        java.lang.String model)
                 throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: DeclHandler
Report an element type declaration.

The content model will consist of the string "EMPTY", the string "ANY", or a parenthesised group, optionally followed by an occurrence indicator. The model will be normalized so that all parameter entities are fully resolved and all whitespace is removed,and will include the enclosing parentheses. Other normalization (such as removing redundant parentheses or simplifying occurrence indicators) is at the discretion of the parser.

elementDecl in interface DeclHandler
Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.ext.DeclHandler
Parameters:
name - The element type name.
model - The content model as a normalized string.
Throws:
SAXException - The application may raise an exception.

Parameters:
name - The unparsed entity's name.
publicId - The entity's public identifier, or null if none was given.
systemId - The entity's system identifier.
notation - name The name of the associated notation.

                  throws SAXException
Description copied from interface: DTDHandler
Receive notification of a notation declaration event.

It is up to the application to record the notation for later reference, if necessary.

At least one of publicId and systemId must be non-null. If a system identifier is present, and it is a URL, the SAX parser must resolve it fully before passing it to the application through this event.

There is no guarantee that the notation declaration will be reported before any unparsed entities that use it.

Following copied from interface: org.xml.sax.DTDHandler
Parameters:
name - The notation name.
publicId - The notation's public identifier, or null if none was given.
systemId - The notation's system identifier, or null if none was given.
Throws:
SAXException - Any SAX exception, possibly wrapping another exception.

serializeNode

protected void serializeNode(Node node)
                      throws java.io.IOException
Serialize the DOM node. This method is shared across XML, HTML and XHTML serializers and the differences are masked out in a separate serializeElement(org.w3c.dom.Element).
Parameters:
node - The node to serialize
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured while serializing
See Also:
serializeElement(org.w3c.dom.Element)

content

protected ElementState content()
                        throws java.io.IOException
Must be called by a method about to print any type of content. If the element was just opened, the opening tag is closed and will be matched to a closing tag. Returns the current element state with empty and afterElement set to false.
Returns:
The current element state
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured while serializing

characters

protected void characters(java.lang.String text)
                   throws java.io.IOException
Called to print the text contents in the prevailing element format. Since this method is capable of printing text as CDATA, it is used for that purpose as well. White space handling is determined by the current element state. In addition, the output format can dictate whether the text is printed as CDATA or unescaped.
Parameters:
text - The text to print
unescaped - True is should print unescaped
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured while serializing

getEntityRef

protected abstract java.lang.String getEntityRef(int ch)
Returns the suitable entity reference for this character value, or null if no such entity exists. Calling this method with '&' will return "&".
Parameters:
ch - Character value
Returns:
Character entity name, or null

serializeElement

protected abstract void serializeElement(Element elem)
                                  throws java.io.IOException
Called to serializee the DOM element. The element is serialized based on the serializer's method (XML, HTML, XHTML).
Parameters:
elem - The element to serialize
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured while serializing

serializePreRoot

protected void serializePreRoot()
                         throws java.io.IOException
Comments and PIs cannot be serialized before the root element, because the root element serializes the document type, which generally comes first. Instead such PIs and comments are accumulated inside a vector and serialized by calling this method. Will be called when the root element is serialized and when the document finished serializing.
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured while serializing

printText

protected final void printText(char[] chars,
                               int start,

                               boolean preserveSpace,
                               boolean unescaped)
                        throws java.io.IOException
Called to print additional text with whitespace handling. If spaces are preserved, the text is printed as if by calling #printText(String) with a call to #breakLine for each new line. If spaces are not preserved, the text is broken at space boundaries if longer than the line width; Multiple spaces are printed as such, but spaces at beginning of line are removed.
Parameters:
text - The text to print
preserveSpace - Space preserving flag
unescaped - Print unescaped
