Class SchemaDVFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.xerces.impl.dv.SchemaDVFactory
Direct Known Subclasses:
BaseDVFactory, BaseSchemaDVFactory

public abstract class SchemaDVFactory
extends java.lang.Object

Defines a factory API that enables applications to

1. to get the instance of specified SchemaDVFactory implementation

2. to create/return built-in schema simple types

3. to create user defined simple types.

Implementations of this abstract class can be used to get built-in simple types and create user-defined simle types.

The implementation should store the built-in datatypes in static data, so that they can be shared by multiple parser instance, and multiple threads.

Method Summary
abstract  XSSimpleType createTypeList(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String targetNamespace, short finalSet, XSSimpleType itemType, org.apache.xerces.xs.XSObjectList annotations)
          Create a new simple type which is derived by list from another simple type.
abstract  XSSimpleType createTypeRestriction(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String targetNamespace, short finalSet, XSSimpleType base, org.apache.xerces.xs.XSObjectList annotations)
          Create a new simple type which is derived by restriction from another simple type.
abstract  XSSimpleType createTypeUnion(java.lang.String name, java.lang.String targetNamespace, short finalSet, XSSimpleType[] memberTypes, org.apache.xerces.xs.XSObjectList annotations)
          Create a new simple type which is derived by union from a list of other simple types.
abstract  XSSimpleType getBuiltInType(java.lang.String name)
          Get a built-in simple type of the given name REVISIT: its still not decided within the Schema WG how to define the ur-types and if all simple types should be derived from a complex type, so as of now we ignore the fact that anySimpleType is derived from anyType, and pass 'null' as the base of anySimpleType.
abstract  SymbolHash getBuiltInTypes()
          get all built-in simple types, which are stored in a SymbolHash keyed by the name
static SchemaDVFactory getInstance()
          Get a default instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation.
static SchemaDVFactory getInstance(java.lang.String factoryClass)
          Get an instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation.

SchemaDVFactory

protected SchemaDVFactory()
Method Detail

getInstance

public static final SchemaDVFactory getInstance()
                                         throws DVFactoryException
Get a default instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation.

Returns:
an instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation
Throws:
DVFactoryException - cannot create an instance of the specified class name or the default class name

getInstance

public static final SchemaDVFactory getInstance(java.lang.String factoryClass)
                                         throws DVFactoryException
Get an instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation.

Parameters:
factoryClass - name of the schema factory implementation to instantiate.
Returns:
an instance of SchemaDVFactory implementation
Throws:
DVFactoryException - cannot create an instance of the specified class name or the default class name

getBuiltInType

public abstract XSSimpleType getBuiltInType(java.lang.String name)
Get a built-in simple type of the given name REVISIT: its still not decided within the Schema WG how to define the ur-types and if all simple types should be derived from a complex type, so as of now we ignore the fact that anySimpleType is derived from anyType, and pass 'null' as the base of anySimpleType. It needs to be changed as per the decision taken.

Parameters:
name - the name of the datatype
Returns:
the datatype validator of the given name

getBuiltInTypes

public abstract SymbolHash getBuiltInTypes()
get all built-in simple types, which are stored in a SymbolHash keyed by the name

Returns:
a SymbolHash which contains all built-in simple types

createTypeRestriction

public abstract XSSimpleType createTypeRestriction(java.lang.String name,
                                                   java.lang.String targetNamespace,
                                                   short finalSet,
