Class RulesBase

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Rules

    public class RulesBase
    extends Object
    implements Rules

    Default implementation of the Rules interface that supports the standard rule matching behavior. This class can also be used as a base class for specialized Rules implementations.

    The matching policies implemented by this class support two different types of pattern matching rules:

    • Exact Match - A pattern "a/b/c" exactly matches a <c> element, nested inside a <b> element, which is nested inside an <a> element.
    • Tail Match - A pattern "*/a/b" matches a <b> element, nested inside an <a> element, no matter how deeply the pair is nested.

      protected HashMap<String,​List<Rule>> cache
      The set of registered Rule instances, keyed by the matching pattern.
      protected Digester digester

      • cache

        protected HashMap<String,​List<Rule>> cache
        The set of registered Rule instances, keyed by the matching pattern. Each value is a List containing the Rules for that pattern, in the order that they were originally registered.
      • digester

        protected Digester digester
        The Digester instance with which this Rules instance is associated.
      • rules

        protected ArrayList<Rule> rules
        The set of registered Rule instances, in the order that they were originally registered.

      • getDigester

        public Digester getDigester()
        Return the Digester instance with which this Rules instance is associated.
        Specified by:
        getDigester in interface Rules
        Returns:
        the Digester instance with which this Rules instance is associated.
      • setDigester

        public void setDigester​(Digester digester)
        Set the Digester instance with which this Rules instance is associated.
        Specified by:
        setDigester in interface Rules
        Parameters:
        digester - The newly associated Digester instance
      • add

        public void add​(String pattern,
                        Rule rule)
        Register a new Rule instance matching the specified pattern.
        Specified by:
        add in interface Rules
        Parameters:
        pattern - Nesting pattern to be matched for this Rule
        rule - Rule instance to be registered
      • clear

        public void clear()
        Clear all existing Rule instance registrations.
        Specified by:
        clear in interface Rules
      • match

        public List<Rule> match​(String namespaceURI,
                                String pattern)
        Return a List of all registered Rule instances that match the specified nesting pattern, or a zero-length List if there are no matches. If more than one Rule instance matches, they must be returned in the order originally registered through the add() method.
        Specified by:
        match in interface Rules
        Parameters:
        namespaceURI - Namespace URI for which to select matching rules, or null to match regardless of namespace URI
        pattern - Nesting pattern to be matched
        Returns:
        a rules list
      • rules

        public List<Rule> rules()
        Return a List of all registered Rule instances, or a zero-length List if there are no registered Rule instances. If more than one Rule instance has been registered, they must be returned in the order originally registered through the add() method.
        Specified by:
        rules in interface Rules
        Returns:
        a rules list
      • lookup

        protected List<Rule> lookup​(String namespaceURI,
                                    String pattern)
        Return a List of Rule instances for the specified pattern that also match the specified namespace URI (if any). If there are no such rules, return null.
        Parameters:
        namespaceURI - Namespace URI to match, or null to select matching rules regardless of namespace URI
        pattern - Pattern to be matched
        Returns:
        a rules list
