Interface XMLPullParserConfiguration

All Superinterfaces:
XMLComponentManager, XMLParserConfiguration

public interface XMLPullParserConfiguration
extends XMLParserConfiguration

Represents a parser configuration that can be used as the configuration for a "pull" parser. A pull parser allows the application to drive the parser instead of having document information events "pushed" to the registered handlers.

A pull parser using this type of configuration first calls the setInputSource method. After the input source is set, the pull parser repeatedly calls the parse(boolean):boolean method. This method returns a value of true if there is more to parse in the document.

Calling the parse(XMLInputSource) is equivalent to setting the input source and calling the parse(boolean):boolean method with a "complete" value of true.

setInputSource

void setInputSource(XMLInputSource inputSource)
                    throws XMLConfigurationException,
                           java.io.IOException
Sets the input source for the document to parse.

boolean parse(boolean complete)
              throws XNIException,
                     java.io.IOException
Parses the document in a pull parsing fashion.

Parameters:
complete - True if the pull parser should parse the remaining document completely.
Returns:
True if there is more document to parse.
Throws:
XNIException - Any XNI exception, possibly wrapping another exception.
java.io.IOException - An IO exception from the parser, possibly from a byte stream or character stream supplied by the parser.

cleanup

void cleanup()
If the application decides to terminate parsing before the xml document is fully parsed, the application should call this method to free any resource allocated during parsing. For example, close all opened streams.
