Method Detail

startDocument

void startDocument(XMLLocator locator,
                   java.lang.String encoding,
                   NamespaceContext namespaceContext,
                   Augmentations augs)
                   throws XNIException
The start of the document.

Parameters:
locator - The document locator, or null if the document location cannot be reported during the parsing of this document. However, it is strongly recommended that a locator be supplied that can at least report the system identifier of the document.
encoding - The auto-detected IANA encoding name of the entity stream. This value will be null in those situations where the entity encoding is not auto-detected (e.g. internal entities or a document entity that is parsed from a java.io.Reader).
namespaceContext - The namespace context in effect at the start of this document. This object represents the current context. Implementors of this class are responsible for copying the namespace bindings from the the current context (and its parent contexts) if that information is important.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

xmlDecl

void xmlDecl(java.lang.String version,
             java.lang.String encoding,
             java.lang.String standalone,
             Augmentations augs)
             throws XNIException
Notifies of the presence of an XMLDecl line in the document. If present, this method will be called immediately following the startDocument call.

Parameters:
version - The XML version.
encoding - The IANA encoding name of the document, or null if not specified.
standalone - The standalone value, or null if not specified.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

doctypeDecl

void doctypeDecl(java.lang.String rootElement,
                 java.lang.String publicId,
                 java.lang.String systemId,
                 Augmentations augs)
                 throws XNIException
Notifies of the presence of the DOCTYPE line in the document.

Parameters:
rootElement - The name of the root element.
publicId - The public identifier if an external DTD or null if the external DTD is specified using SYSTEM.
systemId - The system identifier if an external DTD, null otherwise.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

comment

void comment(XMLString text,
             Augmentations augs)
             throws XNIException
A comment.

Parameters:
text - The text in the comment.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by application to signal an error.

processingInstruction

void processingInstruction(java.lang.String target,
                           XMLString data,
                           Augmentations augs)
                           throws XNIException
A processing instruction. Processing instructions consist of a target name and, optionally, text data. The data is only meaningful to the application.

Typically, a processing instruction's data will contain a series of pseudo-attributes. These pseudo-attributes follow the form of element attributes but are not parsed or presented to the application as anything other than text. The application is responsible for parsing the data.

Parameters:
target - The target.
data - The data or null if none specified.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

startElement

void startElement(QName element,
                  XMLAttributes attributes,
                  Augmentations augs)
                  throws XNIException
The start of an element.

Parameters:
element - The name of the element.
attributes - The element attributes.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

emptyElement

void emptyElement(QName element,
                  XMLAttributes attributes,
                  Augmentations augs)
                  throws XNIException
An empty element.

Parameters:
element - The name of the element.
attributes - The element attributes.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

startGeneralEntity

void startGeneralEntity(java.lang.String name,
                        XMLResourceIdentifier identifier,
                        java.lang.String encoding,
                        Augmentations augs)
                        throws XNIException
This method notifies the start of a general entity.

Note: This method is not called for entity references appearing as part of attribute values.

Parameters:
name - The name of the general entity.
identifier - The resource identifier.
encoding - The auto-detected IANA encoding name of the entity stream. This value will be null in those situations where the entity encoding is not auto-detected (e.g. internal entities or a document entity that is parsed from a java.io.Reader).
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

textDecl

void textDecl(java.lang.String version,
              java.lang.String encoding,
              Augmentations augs)
              throws XNIException
Notifies of the presence of a TextDecl line in an entity. If present, this method will be called immediately following the startEntity call.

Note: This method will never be called for the document entity; it is only called for external general entities referenced in document content.

Note: This method is not called for entity references appearing as part of attribute values.

Parameters:
version - The XML version, or null if not specified.
encoding - The IANA encoding name of the entity.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

endGeneralEntity

void endGeneralEntity(java.lang.String name,
                      Augmentations augs)
                      throws XNIException
This method notifies the end of a general entity.

Note: This method is not called for entity references appearing as part of attribute values.

Parameters:
name - The name of the entity.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

characters

void characters(XMLString text,
                Augmentations augs)
                throws XNIException

Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.

ignorableWhitespace

void ignorableWhitespace(XMLString text,

                         throws XNIException
Ignorable whitespace. For this method to be called, the document source must have some way of determining that the text containing only whitespace characters should be considered ignorable. For example, the validator can determine if a length of whitespace characters in the document are ignorable based on the element content model.

Parameters:
text - The ignorable whitespace.
augs - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.
