Method Detail

a copy of all the collected errors and warnings or an empty array if there weren't any

reset

public void reset()

hasEvents

public boolean hasEvents()
Returns true if this event collector contains at least one ValidationEvent.

Returns:
true if this event collector contains at least one ValidationEvent, false otherwise

handleEvent

public boolean handleEvent(ValidationEvent event)
Description copied from interface: ValidationEventHandler
Receive notification of a validation warning or error. The ValidationEvent will have a ValidationEventLocator embedded in it that indicates where the error or warning occurred.

If an unchecked runtime exception is thrown from this method, the JAXB provider will treat it as if the method returned false and interrupt the current unmarshal, validate, or marshal operation.

Specified by:
handleEvent in interface ValidationEventHandler
Parameters:
event - the encapsulated validation event information. It is a provider error if this parameter is null.
Returns:
true if the JAXB Provider should attempt to continue the current unmarshal, validate, or marshal operation after handling this warning/error, false if the provider should terminate the current operation with the appropriate UnmarshalException, ValidationException, or MarshalException.
