Interface XSTypeDefinition

All Superinterfaces:
XSObject
All Known Subinterfaces:
XSComplexTypeDefinition, XSSimpleTypeDefinition

public interface XSTypeDefinition
extends XSObject

This interface represents a complex or simple type definition.


Field Summary
static short COMPLEX_TYPE
          The object describes a complex type.
static short SIMPLE_TYPE
          The object describes a simple type.
 
Method Summary
 boolean derivedFrom(java.lang.String namespace, java.lang.String name, short derivationMethod)
          Convenience method which checks if this type is derived from the given ancestor type.
 boolean derivedFromType(XSTypeDefinition ancestorType, short derivationMethod)
          Convenience method which checks if this type is derived from the given ancestorType.
 boolean getAnonymous()
          Convenience attribute.
 XSTypeDefinition getBaseType()
          {base type definition}: either a simple type definition or a complex type definition.
 short getFinal()
          For complex types the returned value is a bit combination of the subset of {DERIVATION_EXTENSION, DERIVATION_RESTRICTION} corresponding to final set of this type or DERIVATION_NONE.
 short getTypeCategory()
          Return whether this type definition is a simple type or complex type.
 boolean isFinal(short restriction)
          {final}.

Constant Field Values

SIMPLE_TYPE

static final short SIMPLE_TYPE
The object describes a simple type.

Constant Field Values
Method Detail

getTypeCategory

short getTypeCategory()
Return whether this type definition is a simple type or complex type.


getBaseType

XSTypeDefinition getBaseType()
{base type definition}: either a simple type definition or a complex type definition.


isFinal

boolean isFinal(short restriction)
{final}. For a complex type definition it is a subset of {extension, restriction}. For a simple type definition it is a subset of {extension, list, restriction, union}.

Parameters:
restriction - Extension, restriction, list, union constants (defined in XSConstants).
Returns:
True if restriction is in the final set, otherwise false.

getFinal

short getFinal()
For complex types the returned value is a bit combination of the subset of {DERIVATION_EXTENSION, DERIVATION_RESTRICTION} corresponding to final set of this type or DERIVATION_NONE. For simple types the returned value is a bit combination of the subset of { DERIVATION_RESTRICTION, DERIVATION_EXTENSION, DERIVATION_UNION, DERIVATION_LIST } corresponding to final set of this type or DERIVATION_NONE.


getAnonymous

boolean getAnonymous()
Convenience attribute. A boolean that specifies if the type definition is anonymous.


derivedFromType

boolean derivedFromType(XSTypeDefinition ancestorType,
                        short derivationMethod)
Convenience method which checks if this type is derived from the given ancestorType.

Parameters:
ancestorType - An ancestor type definition.
derivationMethod - A bit combination representing a subset of { DERIVATION_RESTRICTION, DERIVATION_EXTENSION, DERIVATION_UNION, DERIVATION_LIST }.
Returns:
True if this type is derived from ancestorType using only derivation methods from the derivationMethod .

derivedFrom

boolean derivedFrom(java.lang.String namespace,
                    java.lang.String name,
                    short derivationMethod)
Convenience method which checks if this type is derived from the given ancestor type.

Parameters:
namespace - An ancestor type namespace.
name - An ancestor type name.
derivationMethod - A bit combination representing a subset of { DERIVATION_RESTRICTION, DERIVATION_EXTENSION, DERIVATION_UNION, DERIVATION_LIST }.
Returns:
True if this type is derived from ancestorType using only derivation methods from the derivationMethod .
