static short CONTEXT_IMPORT
          Indicate that the current schema document is <import>ed by another schema document.
static short CONTEXT_INCLUDE
          Indicate that the current schema document is <include>d by another schema document.
static short CONTEXT_INSTANCE
          Indicate that the parse of the current schema document is triggered by xsi:schemaLocation/noNamespaceSchemaLocation attribute(s) in the instance document.

Method Summary
 XMLAttributes getAttributes()
          If a call is triggered by an element/attribute/xsi:type in the instance, this call returns all attributes of such an element (or enclosing element).
 short getContextType()
          Get the context.
 QName getEnclosingElementName()
          If a call is triggered by an attribute or xsi:type, then this method returns the enclosing element of such element.
 java.lang.String[] getLocationHints()
          For import and references from the instance document, it's possible to have multiple hints for one namespace.
 java.lang.String getTargetNamespace()
          If the context is "include" or "redefine", then return the target namespace of the enclosing schema document; otherwise, the expected target namespace of this document.
 QName getTriggeringComponent()
          If a call is triggered by an element/attribute/xsi:type in the instance, this call returns the name of such triggering component: the name of the element/attribute, or the value of the xsi:type.

Field Detail

CONTEXT_INCLUDE

static final short CONTEXT_INCLUDE
Indicate that the current schema document is <include>d by another schema document.

Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_REDEFINE

static final short CONTEXT_REDEFINE
Indicate that the current schema document is <redefine>d by another schema document.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_IMPORT

static final short CONTEXT_IMPORT
Indicate that the current schema document is <import>ed by another schema document.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_PREPARSE

static final short CONTEXT_PREPARSE
Indicate that the current schema document is being preparsed.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_INSTANCE

static final short CONTEXT_INSTANCE
Indicate that the parse of the current schema document is triggered by xsi:schemaLocation/noNamespaceSchemaLocation attribute(s) in the instance document. This value is only used if we don't defer the loading of schema documents.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_ELEMENT

static final short CONTEXT_ELEMENT
Indicate that the parse of the current schema document is triggered by the occurrence of an element whose namespace is the target namespace of this schema document. This value is only used if we do defer the loading of schema documents until a component from that namespace is referenced from the instance.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_ATTRIBUTE

static final short CONTEXT_ATTRIBUTE
Indicate that the parse of the current schema document is triggered by the occurrence of an attribute whose namespace is the target namespace of this schema document. This value is only used if we do defer the loading of schema documents until a component from that namespace is referenced from the instance.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

CONTEXT_XSITYPE

static final short CONTEXT_XSITYPE
Indicate that the parse of the current schema document is triggered by the occurrence of an "xsi:type" attribute, whose value (a QName) has the target namespace of this schema document as its namespace. This value is only used if we do defer the loading of schema documents until a component from that namespace is referenced from the instance.

Method Detail

getContextType

short getContextType()
Get the context. The returned value is one of the pre-defined CONTEXT_xxx constants.

Returns:
the value indicating the context

getTargetNamespace

java.lang.String getTargetNamespace()
If the context is "include" or "redefine", then return the target namespace of the enclosing schema document; otherwise, the expected target namespace of this document.

Returns:
the expected/enclosing target namespace

getLocationHints

java.lang.String[] getLocationHints()
For import and references from the instance document, it's possible to have multiple hints for one namespace. So this method returns an array, which contains all location hints.

Returns:
an array of all location hints associated to the expected target namespace

getTriggeringComponent

QName getTriggeringComponent()
If a call is triggered by an element/attribute/xsi:type in the instance, this call returns the name of such triggering component: the name of the element/attribute, or the value of the xsi:type.

Returns:
the name of the triggering component

getEnclosingElementName

QName getEnclosingElementName()
If a call is triggered by an attribute or xsi:type, then this method returns the enclosing element of such element.

Returns:
the name of the enclosing element

getAttributes

XMLAttributes getAttributes()
If a call is triggered by an element/attribute/xsi:type in the instance, this call returns all attributes of such an element (or enclosing element).

Returns:
all attributes of the triggering/enclosing element
