Class SAXOutputter

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.jdom.output.SAXOutputter

public class SAXOutputter
extends java.lang.Object

Outputs a JDOM document as a stream of SAX2 events.

Most ContentHandler callbacks are supported. Both ignorableWhitespace() and skippedEntity() have not been implemented. The JDOMLocator class returned by getLocator() exposes the current node being operated upon.

At this time, it is not possible to access notations and unparsed entity references in a DTD from JDOM. Therefore, DTDHandler callbacks have not been implemented yet.

The ErrorHandler callbacks have not been implemented, since these are supposed to be invoked when the document is parsed and at this point the document exists in memory and is known to have no errors.

This will set the state of a SAX feature.

All XMLReaders are required to support setting to true and to false.

SAXOutputter currently supports the following SAX core features:

http://xml.org/sax/features/namespaces
description: true indicates namespace URIs and unprefixed local names for element and attribute names will be available
access: read/write, but always true!
http://xml.org/sax/features/namespace-prefixes
description: true indicates XML 1.0 names (with prefixes) and attributes (including xmlns* attributes) will be available
access: read/write
http://xml.org/sax/features/validation
description: controls whether SAXOutputter is reporting DTD-related events; if true, the DocType internal subset will be parsed to fire DTD events
access: read/write, defaults to true

Parameters:
name - String the feature name, which is a fully-qualified URI.
value - boolean the requested state of the feature (true or false).
Throws:
org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException - when SAXOutputter does not recognize the feature name.
org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException - when SAXOutputter recognizes the feature name but cannot set the requested value.

getFeature

public boolean getFeature(java.lang.String name)
                   throws org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException,
                          org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException
This will look up the value of a SAX feature.

Parameters:
name - String the feature name, which is a fully-qualified URI.
Returns:
boolean the current state of the feature (true or false).
Throws:
org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException - when SAXOutputter does not recognize the feature name.
org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException - when SAXOutputter recognizes the feature name but determine its value at this time.

                        org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException
This will set the value of a SAX property. This method is also the standard mechanism for setting extended handlers.

SAXOutputter currently supports the following SAX properties:

http://xml.org/sax/properties/lexical-handler
data type: org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler
description: An optional extension handler for lexical events like comments.
access: read/write
http://xml.org/sax/properties/declaration-handler
data type: org.xml.sax.ext.DeclHandler
description: An optional extension handler for DTD-related events other than notations and unparsed entities.
access: read/write

Parameters:
name - String the property name, which is a fully-qualified URI.
value - Object the requested value for the property.
Throws:
org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException - when SAXOutputter does not recognize the property name.
org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException - when SAXOutputter recognizes the property name but cannot set the requested value.

getProperty

public java.lang.Object getProperty(java.lang.String name)
                             throws org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException,
                                    org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException
This will look up the value of a SAX property.

Parameters:
name - String the property name, which is a fully-qualified URI.
Returns:
Object the current value of the property.
Throws:
org.xml.sax.SAXNotRecognizedException - when SAXOutputter does not recognize the property name.
org.xml.sax.SAXNotSupportedException - when SAXOutputter recognizes the property name but cannot determine its value at this time.

output

public void output(Document document)
            throws JDOMException
This will output the JDOM Document, firing off the SAX events that have been registered.

Parameters:
document - JDOM Document to output.
Throws:
JDOMException - if any error occurred.

output

public void output(java.util.List nodes)
            throws JDOMException
This will output a list of JDOM nodes as a document, firing off the SAX events that have been registered.

Warning: This method may output ill-formed XML documents if the list contains top-level objects that are not legal at the document level (e.g. Text or CDATA nodes, multiple Element nodes, etc.). Thus, it should only be used to output document portions towards ContentHandlers capable of accepting such ill-formed documents (such as XSLT processors).

Parameters:
nodes - List of JDOM nodes to output.
Throws:
JDOMException - if any error occurred.
See Also:
output(org.jdom.Document)

output

public void output(Element node)
            throws JDOMException
This will output a single JDOM element as a document, firing off the SAX events that have been registered.

Parameters:
node - the Element node to output.
Throws:
JDOMException - if any error occurred.

outputFragment

public void outputFragment(java.util.List nodes)
                    throws JDOMException
This will output a list of JDOM nodes as a fragment of an XML document, firing off the SAX events that have been registered.

Warning: This method does not call the ContentHandler.setDocumentLocator(org.xml.sax.Locator), ContentHandler.startDocument() and ContentHandler.endDocument() callbacks on the ContentHandler. The user shall invoke these methods directly prior/after outputting the document fragments.

Parameters:
nodes - List of JDOM nodes to output.
Throws:
JDOMException - if any error occurred.
See Also:
outputFragment(org.jdom.Content)

outputFragment

public void outputFragment(Content node)
                    throws JDOMException
This will output a single JDOM nodes as a fragment of an XML document, firing off the SAX events that have been registered.

Warning: This method does not call the ContentHandler.setDocumentLocator(org.xml.sax.Locator), ContentHandler.startDocument() and ContentHandler.endDocument() callbacks on the ContentHandler. The user shall invoke these methods directly prior/after outputting the document fragments.

Parameters:
node - the Content node to output.
Throws:
JDOMException - if any error occurred.
See Also:
outputFragment(java.util.List)

createParser

protected org.xml.sax.XMLReader createParser()
                                      throws java.lang.Exception

Creates a SAX XMLReader.

Returns:
XMLReader a SAX2 parser.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - if no parser can be created.

getLocator

public JDOMLocator getLocator()
Returns a JDOMLocator object referencing the node currently being processed by this outputter. The returned object is a snapshot of the location information and can thus safely be memorized for later use.

This method allows direct access to the location information maintained by SAXOutputter without requiring to implement XMLFilter. (In SAX, locators are only available though the ContentHandler interface).

Note that location information is only available while SAXOutputter is outputting nodes. Hence this method should only be used by objects taking part in the output processing such as ErrorHandlers.

Returns:
a JDOMLocator object referencing the node currently being processed or null if no output operation is being performed.
