Method Detail

registerSerializerFactory

public static void registerSerializerFactory(SerializerFactory factory)
Register a serializer factory, keyed by the given method string.

getSerializerFactory

public static SerializerFactory getSerializerFactory(java.lang.String method)
Register a serializer factory, keyed by the given method string.

getSupportedMethod

protected abstract java.lang.String getSupportedMethod()
Returns the method supported by this factory and used to register the factory. This call is required so factories can be added from a properties file by knowing only the class name. This method is protected, it is only required by this class but must be implemented in derived classes.

makeSerializer

public abstract Serializer makeSerializer(OutputFormat format)
Create a new serializer based on the OutputFormat. If this method is used to create the serializer, the Serializer.setOutputByteStream(java.io.OutputStream) or Serializer.setOutputCharStream(java.io.Writer) methods must be called before serializing a document.

makeSerializer

public abstract Serializer makeSerializer(java.io.Writer writer,
                                          OutputFormat format)
Create a new serializer, based on the OutputFormat and using the writer as the output character stream. If this method is used, the encoding property will be ignored.

makeSerializer

public abstract Serializer makeSerializer(java.io.OutputStream output,
                                          OutputFormat format)
                                   throws java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException
Create a new serializer, based on the OutputFormat and using the output byte stream and the encoding specified in the output format.
Throws:
java.io.UnsupportedEncodingException - The specified encoding is not supported
