Class ContentModel

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.swing.text.html.parser.ContentModel
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable

public final class ContentModel
extends Object
implements Serializable

A representation of a content model. A content model is basically a restricted BNF expression. It is restricted in the sense that it must be deterministic. This means that you don't have to represent it as a finite state automata.

See Annex H on page 556 of the SGML handbook for more information.


Field Summary
 Object content
          The content.
 ContentModel next
          The next content model (in a ',', '|' or '&' expression).
 int type
          Type.
 
Constructor Summary
ContentModel()
           
ContentModel(Element content)
          Create a content model for an element.
ContentModel(int type, ContentModel content)
          Create a content model of a particular type.
ContentModel(int type, Object content, ContentModel next)
          Create a content model of a particular type.
 
Method Summary
 boolean empty()
          Return true if the content model could match an empty input stream.
 Element first()
          Return the element that must be next.
 boolean first(Object token)
          Return true if the token could potentially be the first token in the input stream.
 void getElements(Vector<Element> elemVec)
          Update elemVec with the list of elements that are part of the this contentModel.
 String toString()
          Convert to a string.
