public abstract class ParentNode
extends ChildNode

ParentNode inherits from ChildNode and adds the capability of having child nodes. Not every node in the DOM can have children, so only nodes that can should inherit from this class and pay the price for it.

ParentNode, just like NodeImpl, also implements NodeList, so it can return itself in response to the getChildNodes() query. This eliminiates the need for a separate ChildNodeList object. Note that this is an IMPLEMENTATION DETAIL; applications should _never_ assume that this identity exists. On the other hand, subclasses may need to override this, in case of conflicting names. This is the case for the classes HTMLSelectElementImpl and HTMLFormElementImpl of the HTML DOM.

While we have a direct reference to the first child, the last child is stored as the previous sibling of the first child. First child nodes are marked as being so, and getNextSibling hides this fact.

Note: Not all parent nodes actually need to also be a child. At some point we used to have ParentNode inheriting from NodeImpl and another class called ChildAndParentNode that inherited from ChildNode. But due to the lack of multiple inheritance a lot of code had to be duplicated which led to a maintenance nightmare. At the same time only a few nodes (Document, DocumentFragment, Entity, and Attribute) cannot be a child so the gain in memory wasn't really worth it. The only type for which this would be the case is Attribute, but we deal with there in another special way, so this is not applicable.

This class doesn't directly support mutation events, however, it notifies the document when mutations are performed so that the document class do so.

WARNING: Some of the code here is partially duplicated in AttrImpl, be careful to keep these two classes in sync!

Method Detail

cloneNode

public org.w3c.dom.Node cloneNode(boolean deep)
Returns a duplicate of a given node. You can consider this a generic "copy constructor" for nodes. The newly returned object should be completely independent of the source object's subtree, so changes in one after the clone has been made will not affect the other.

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.

Specified by:
cloneNode in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
cloneNode in class ChildNode

getOwnerDocument

public org.w3c.dom.Document getOwnerDocument()
Find the Document that this Node belongs to (the document in whose context the Node was created). The Node may or may not currently be part of that Document's actual contents.

Specified by:
getOwnerDocument in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
getOwnerDocument in class NodeImpl

setOwnerDocument

protected void setOwnerDocument(CoreDocumentImpl doc)
NON-DOM set the ownerDocument of this node and its children

Overrides:
setOwnerDocument in class NodeImpl

hasChildNodes

public boolean hasChildNodes()
Test whether this node has any children. Convenience shorthand for (Node.getFirstChild()!=null)

Specified by:
hasChildNodes in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
hasChildNodes in class NodeImpl
See Also:
ParentNode

getChildNodes

public org.w3c.dom.NodeList getChildNodes()
Obtain a NodeList enumerating all children of this node. If there are none, an (initially) empty NodeList is returned.

NodeLists are "live"; as children are added/removed the NodeList will immediately reflect those changes. Also, the NodeList refers to the actual nodes, so changes to those nodes made via the DOM tree will be reflected in the NodeList and vice versa.

In this implementation, Nodes implement the NodeList interface and provide their own getChildNodes() support. Other DOMs may solve this differently.

Specified by:
getChildNodes in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
getChildNodes in class NodeImpl

getFirstChild

public org.w3c.dom.Node getFirstChild()
The first child of this Node, or null if none.

Specified by:
getFirstChild in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
getFirstChild in class NodeImpl
See Also:
ParentNode

getLastChild

public org.w3c.dom.Node getLastChild()
The last child of this Node, or null if none.

Specified by:
getLastChild in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
getLastChild in class NodeImpl

insertBefore

public org.w3c.dom.Node insertBefore(org.w3c.dom.Node newChild,
                                     org.w3c.dom.Node refChild)
                              throws org.w3c.dom.DOMException
Move one or more node(s) to our list of children. Note that this implicitly removes them from their previous parent.

Specified by:
insertBefore in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
insertBefore in class NodeImpl
Parameters:
newChild - The Node to be moved to our subtree. As a convenience feature, inserting a DocumentNode will instead insert all its children.
refChild - Current child which newChild should be placed immediately before. If refChild is null, the insertion occurs after all existing Nodes, like appendChild().
Returns:
newChild, in its new state (relocated, or emptied in the case of DocumentNode.)
Throws:
DOMException(HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR) - if newChild is of a type that shouldn't be a child of this node, or if newChild is an ancestor of this node.
DOMException(WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR) - if newChild has a different owner document than we do.
DOMException(NOT_FOUND_ERR) - if refChild is not a child of this node.
DOMException(NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR) - if this node is read-only.

removeChild

public org.w3c.dom.Node removeChild(org.w3c.dom.Node oldChild)
                             throws org.w3c.dom.DOMException
Remove a child from this Node. The removed child's subtree remains intact so it may be re-inserted elsewhere.

Specified by:
removeChild in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
removeChild in class NodeImpl
Returns:
oldChild, in its new state (removed).
Throws:
DOMException(NOT_FOUND_ERR) - if oldChild is not a child of this node.
DOMException(NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR) - if this node is read-only.
org.w3c.dom.DOMException

replaceChild

public org.w3c.dom.Node replaceChild(org.w3c.dom.Node newChild,
                                     org.w3c.dom.Node oldChild)
                              throws org.w3c.dom.DOMException
Make newChild occupy the location that oldChild used to have. Note that newChild will first be removed from its previous parent, if any. Equivalent to inserting newChild before oldChild, then removing oldChild.

Specified by:
replaceChild in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
replaceChild in class NodeImpl
Returns:
oldChild, in its new state (removed).
Throws:
DOMException(HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR) - if newChild is of a type that shouldn't be a child of this node, or if newChild is one of our ancestors.
DOMException(WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR) - if newChild has a different owner document than we do.
DOMException(NOT_FOUND_ERR) - if oldChild is not a child of this node.
DOMException(NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR) - if this node is read-only.

getTextContent

public java.lang.String getTextContent()
                                throws org.w3c.dom.DOMException
Description copied from class: NodeImpl
This attribute returns the text content of this node and its descendants. When it is defined to be null, setting it has no effect. When set, any possible children this node may have are removed and replaced by a single Text node containing the string this attribute is set to. On getting, no serialization is performed, the returned string does not contain any markup. No whitespace normalization is performed, the returned string does not contain the element content whitespaces . Similarly, on setting, no parsing is performed either, the input string is taken as pure textual content.
The string returned is made of the text content of this node depending on its type, as defined below: /** This attribute returns the text content of this node and its descendants.

getChildNodesUnoptimized

protected final org.w3c.dom.NodeList getChildNodesUnoptimized()
Create a NodeList to access children that is use by subclass elements that have methods named getLength() or item(int). ChildAndParentNode optimizes getChildNodes() by implementing NodeList itself. However if a subclass Element implements methods with the same name as the NodeList methods, they will override the actually methods in this class.

To use this method, the subclass should implement getChildNodes() and have it call this method. The resulting NodeList instance maybe shared and cached in a transient field, but the cached value must be cleared if the node is cloned.


normalize

public void normalize()
Override default behavior to call normalize() on this Node's children. It is up to implementors or Node to override normalize() to take action.

Specified by:
normalize in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
normalize in class NodeImpl

isEqualNode

public boolean isEqualNode(org.w3c.dom.Node arg)
DOM Level 3 WD- Experimental. Override inherited behavior from NodeImpl to support deep equal.

Specified by:
isEqualNode in interface org.w3c.dom.Node
Overrides:
isEqualNode in class NodeImpl
Parameters:
arg - The node to compare equality with.
Returns:
If the nodes, and possibly subtrees are equal, true otherwise false.

setReadOnly

public void setReadOnly(boolean readOnly,
                        boolean deep)
Override default behavior so that if deep is true, children are also toggled.

Overrides:
setReadOnly in class NodeImpl
Parameters:
readOnly - True or false as desired.
deep - If true, children are also toggled. Note that this will not change the state of an EntityReference or its children, which are always read-only.
See Also:

synchronizeChildren

protected void synchronizeChildren()
Override this method in subclass to hook in efficient internal data structure.
