Class Digester

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.xml.sax.helpers.DefaultHandler
      extended by org.xml.sax.ext.DefaultHandler2
          extended by org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.Digester
All Implemented Interfaces:
org.xml.sax.ContentHandler, org.xml.sax.DTDHandler, org.xml.sax.EntityResolver, org.xml.sax.ErrorHandler, org.xml.sax.ext.DeclHandler, org.xml.sax.ext.EntityResolver2, org.xml.sax.ext.LexicalHandler

public class Digester
extends org.xml.sax.ext.DefaultHandler2

A Digester processes an XML input stream by matching a series of element nesting patterns to execute Rules that have been added prior to the start of parsing. This package was inspired by the XmlMapper class that was part of Tomcat 3.0 and 3.1, but is organized somewhat differently.

See the Digester Developer Guide for more information.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTE - A single Digester instance may only be used within the context of a single thread at a time, and a call to parse() must be completed before another can be initiated even from the same thread.

IMPLEMENTATION NOTE - A bug in Xerces 2.0.2 prevents the support of XML schema. You need Xerces 2.1/2.3 and up to make this class working with XML schema

protected ArrayStack bodyTexts

matches

protected ArrayStack matches
Stack whose elements are List objects, each containing a list of Rule objects as returned from Rules.getMatch(). As each xml element in the input is entered, the matching rules are pushed onto this stack. After the end tag is reached, the matches are popped again. The depth of is stack is therefore exactly the same as the current "nesting" level of the input xml.

Since:
1.6

classLoader

protected java.lang.ClassLoader classLoader

Constructor Detail

Digester

public Digester()
Construct a new Digester with default properties.


Digester

public Digester(javax.xml.parsers.SAXParser parser)
Construct a new Digester, allowing a SAXParser to be passed in. This allows Digester to be used in environments which are unfriendly to JAXP1.1 (such as WebLogic 6.0). Thanks for the request to change go to James House (james@interobjective.com). This may help in places where you are able to load JAXP 1.1 classes yourself.


Digester

public Digester(org.xml.sax.XMLReader reader)
Construct a new Digester, allowing an XMLReader to be passed in. This allows Digester to be used in environments which are unfriendly to JAXP1.1 (such as WebLogic 6.0). Note that if you use this option you have to configure namespace and validation support yourself, as these properties only affect the SAXParser and empty constructor.

Method Detail

findNamespaceURI

public java.lang.String findNamespaceURI(java.lang.String prefix)
Return the currently mapped namespace URI for the specified prefix, if any; otherwise return null. These mappings come and go dynamically as the document is parsed.

Parameters:

Parameters:
classLoader - The new class loader to use, or null to revert to the standard rules

getCount

public int getCount()
Return the current depth of the element stack.


getCurrentElementName

public java.lang.String getCurrentElementName()
Return the name of the XML element that is currently being processed.

register

public void register(java.lang.String publicId,
                     java.lang.String entityURL)

Register the specified DTD URL for the specified public identifier. This must be called before the first call to parse().

Digester contains an internal EntityResolver implementation. This maps PUBLICID's to URLs (from which the resource will be loaded). A common use case for this method is to register local URLs (possibly computed at runtime by a classloader) for DTDs. This allows the performance advantage of using a local version without having to ensure every SYSTEM URI on every processed xml document is local. This implementation provides only basic functionality. If more sophisticated features are required, using setEntityResolver(org.xml.sax.EntityResolver) to set a custom resolver is recommended.

Note: This method will have no effect when a custom EntityResolver has been set. (Setting a custom EntityResolver overrides the internal implementation.)

Parameters:
publicId - Public identifier of the DTD to be resolved
entityURL - The URL to use for reading this DTD

addRule

public void addRule(java.lang.String pattern,
                    Rule rule)

                          java.lang.String[] paramTypes)
Add an "call method" rule for the specified parameters. If paramCount is set to zero the rule will use the body of the matched element as the single argument of the method, unless paramTypes is null or empty, in this case the rule will call the specified method with no arguments.

Parameters:
pattern - Element matching pattern

Add an "call method" rule for the specified parameters. If paramCount is set to zero the rule will use the body of the matched element as the single argument of the method, unless paramTypes is null or empty, in this case the rule will call the specified method with no arguments.

Parameters:
pattern - Element matching pattern
methodName - Method name to be called
paramCount - Number of expected parameters (or zero for a single parameter from the body of this element)
paramTypes - The Java class names of the arguments (if you wish to use a primitive type, specify the corresponding Java wrapper class instead, such as java.lang.Boolean for a boolean parameter)

addObjectParam

public void addObjectParam(java.lang.String pattern,

                           java.lang.Object paramObj)
Add a "call parameter" rule that sets a parameter from a caller-provided object. This can be used to pass constants such as strings to methods; it can also be used to pass mutable objects, providing ways for objects to do things like "register" themselves with some shared object.

Note that when attempting to locate a matching method to invoke, the true type of the paramObj is used, so that despite the paramObj being passed in here as type Object, the target method can declare its parameters as being the true type of the object (or some ancestor type, according to the usual type-conversion rules).

Parameters:
paramIndex - The zero-relative parameter number
paramObj - Any arbitrary object to be passed to the target method.
Since:
1.6

configure

protected void configure()

Provide a hook for lazy configuration of this Digester instance. The default implementation does nothing, but subclasses can override as needed.

Note This method may be called more than once. Once only initialization code should be placed in initialize() or the code should take responsibility by checking and setting the configured flag.


initialize

protected void initialize()

Provides a hook for lazy initialization of this Digester instance. The default implementation does nothing, but subclasses can override as needed. Digester (by default) only calls this method once.

Note This method will be called by configure() only when the configured flag is false. Subclasses that override configure or who set configured may find that this method may be called more than once.

Since:
1.6
