Class XMLString

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.jasper.xmlparser.XMLString
Direct Known Subclasses:
XMLStringBuffer

public class XMLString
extends java.lang.Object

This class is used as a structure to pass text contained in the underlying character buffer of the scanner. The offset and length fields allow the buffer to be re-used without creating new character arrays.

Note: Methods that are passed an XMLString structure should consider the contents read-only and not make any modifications to the contents of the buffer. The method receiving this structure should also not modify the offset and length if this structure (or the values of this structure) are passed to another method.

Note: Methods that are passed an XMLString structure are required to copy the information out of the buffer if it is to be saved for use beyond the scope of the method. The contents of the structure are volatile and the contents of the character buffer cannot be assured once the method that is passed this structure returns. Therefore, methods passed this structure should not save any reference to the structure or the character array contained in the structure.

Parameters:
ch - The character array.
offset - The offset into the character array.
length - The length of characters from the offset.

setValues

public void setValues(XMLString s)
Initializes the contents of the XMLString structure with copies of the given string structure.

Note: This does not copy the character array; only the reference to the array is copied.

Parameters:
s -

clear

public void clear()
