Method Detail

startValueScopeFor

void startValueScopeFor(IdentityConstraint identityConstraint,
                        int initialDepth)
Start the value scope for the specified identity constraint. This method is called when the selector matches in order to initialize the value store.

Parameters:
identityConstraint - The identity constraint.
initialDepth - the depth at which the selector began matching

activateField

XPathMatcher activateField(Field field,
                           int initialDepth)
Request to activate the specified field. This method returns the matcher for the field.

Parameters:
field - The field to activate.
initialDepth - the 0-indexed depth in the instance document at which the Selector began to match.

endValueScopeFor

void endValueScopeFor(IdentityConstraint identityConstraint,
                      int initialDepth)
Ends the value scope for the specified identity constraint.

Parameters:
identityConstraint - The identity constraint.
initialDepth - the 0-indexed depth where the Selector began to match.
