Method Detail

warning

void warning(java.lang.String domain,
             java.lang.String key,
             XMLParseException exception)
             throws XNIException
Reports a warning. Warnings are non-fatal and can be safely ignored by most applications.

Parameters:
domain - The domain of the warning. The domain can be any string but is suggested to be a valid URI. The domain can be used to conveniently specify a web site location of the relevant specification or document pertaining to this warning.
key - The warning key. This key can be any string and is implementation dependent.
exception - Exception.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown to signal that the parser should stop parsing the document.

error

void error(java.lang.String domain,
           java.lang.String key,
           XMLParseException exception)
           throws XNIException
Reports an error. Errors are non-fatal and usually signify that the document is invalid with respect to its grammar(s).

Parameters:
domain - The domain of the error. The domain can be any string but is suggested to be a valid URI. The domain can be used to conveniently specify a web site location of the relevant specification or document pertaining to this error.
key - The error key. This key can be any string and is implementation dependent.
exception - Exception.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown to signal that the parser should stop parsing the document.

fatalError

void fatalError(java.lang.String domain,
                java.lang.String key,
                XMLParseException exception)
                throws XNIException
Report a fatal error. Fatal errors usually occur when the document is not well-formed and signifies that the parser cannot continue normal operation.

Note: The error handler should always throw an XNIException from this method. This exception can either be the same exception that is passed as a parameter to the method or a new XNI exception object. If the registered error handler fails to throw an exception, the continuing operation of the parser is undetermined.

Parameters:
domain - The domain of the fatal error. The domain can be any string but is suggested to be a valid URI. The domain can be used to conveniently specify a web site location of the relevant specification or document pertaining to this fatal error.
key - The fatal error key. This key can be any string and is implementation dependent.
exception - Exception.
Throws:
XNIException - Thrown to signal that the parser should stop parsing the document.
