Interface NameParser


public interface NameParser

This interface is used for parsing names from a hierarchical namespace. The NameParser contains knowledge of the syntactic information (like left-to-right orientation, name separator, etc.) needed to parse names. The equals() method, when used to compare two NameParsers, returns true if and only if they serve the same namespace.
