Interface XMLDTDContentModelHandler

All Known Subinterfaces:
XMLDTDContentModelFilter

public interface XMLDTDContentModelHandler

The DTD content model handler interface defines callback methods to report information items in DTD content models of an element declaration. Parser components interested in DTD content model information implement this interface and are registered as the DTD content model handler on the DTD content model source.

Field Detail

SEPARATOR_CHOICE

static final short SEPARATOR_CHOICE
A choice separator for children and mixed content models. This separator is used to specify that the allowed child is one of a collection.

For example:

 <!ELEMENT elem (foo|bar)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (foo|bar+)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (foo|bar|baz)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (#PCDATA|foo|bar)*>
 

See Also:
SEPARATOR_SEQUENCE, Constant Field Values

SEPARATOR_SEQUENCE

static final short SEPARATOR_SEQUENCE
A sequence separator for children content models. This separator is used to specify that the allowed children must follow in the specified sequence.

 <!ELEMENT elem (foo,bar)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (foo,bar*)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (foo,bar,baz)>
 

See Also:
SEPARATOR_CHOICE, Constant Field Values

OCCURS_ZERO_OR_ONE

static final short OCCURS_ZERO_OR_ONE
This occurrence count limits the element, choice, or sequence in a children content model to zero or one. In other words, the child is optional.

For example:

 <!ELEMENT elem (foo?)>
 

See Also:
OCCURS_ZERO_OR_MORE, OCCURS_ONE_OR_MORE, Constant Field Values

OCCURS_ZERO_OR_MORE

static final short OCCURS_ZERO_OR_MORE
This occurrence count limits the element, choice, or sequence in a children content model to zero or more. In other words, the child may appear an arbitrary number of times, or not at all. This occurrence count is also used for mixed content models.

For example:

 <!ELEMENT elem (foo*)>
 <!ELEMENT elem (#PCDATA|foo|bar)*>
 

See Also:
OCCURS_ZERO_OR_ONE, OCCURS_ONE_OR_MORE, Constant Field Values

OCCURS_ONE_OR_MORE

static final short OCCURS_ONE_OR_MORE
This occurrence count limits the element, choice, or sequence in a children content model to one or more. In other words, the child may appear an arbitrary number of times, but must appear at least once.

For example:

 <!ELEMENT elem (foo+)>

Method Detail

startContentModel

void startContentModel(java.lang.String elementName,
                       Augmentations augmentations)
                       throws XNIException
The start of a content model. Depending on the type of the content model, specific methods may be called between the call to the startContentModel method and the call to the endContentModel method.

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

any

void any(Augmentations augmentations)
         throws XNIException
A content model of ANY.

Parameters:
augmentations - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.
See Also:
empty(org.apache.xerces.xni.Augmentations), startGroup(org.apache.xerces.xni.Augmentations)

empty

void empty(Augmentations augmentations)
           throws XNIException
A content model of EMPTY.

Parameters:
augmentations - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.
See Also:
any(org.apache.xerces.xni.Augmentations), startGroup(org.apache.xerces.xni.Augmentations)

startGroup

void startGroup(Augmentations augmentations)
                throws XNIException
A start of either a mixed or children content model. A mixed content model will immediately be followed by a call to the pcdata() method. A children content model will contain additional groups and/or elements.

Parameters:

pcdata

void pcdata(Augmentations augmentations)
            throws XNIException
The appearance of "#PCDATA" within a group signifying a mixed content model. This method will be the first called following the content model's startGroup().

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

The separator between choices or sequences of a mixed or children content model.

Parameters:
separator - The type of children separator.

                Augmentations augmentations)
                throws XNIException
The occurrence count for a child in a children content model or for the mixed content model group.

Parameters:
occurrence - The occurrence count for the last element or group.
augmentations - Additional information that may include infoset augmentations.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown by handler to signal an error.
