oracle.xml.parser.v2
Class NodeFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.xml.parser.v2.NodeFactory

All Implemented Interfaces:
java.io.Serializable

public class NodeFactory
extends java.lang.Object
implements java.io.Serializable

This class specifies methods to create various nodes of the DOM tree built during parsing. Applications can override these methods to create their own custom classes to be added to the DOM tree while parsing. Applications have to register their own NodeFactory using the DOMParser's setNodeFactory() method. If a null pointer is returned by these methods, then the node will not be added to the DOM tree.

Constructor Summary
NodeFactory()
          Default constructor for NodeFactory

Constructor Detail

NodeFactory

public NodeFactory()
Default constructor for NodeFactory

Method Detail

isNamespaceAware

public boolean isNamespaceAware()
Check if the NodeFactory is namespace aware If TRUE, createElementNS(localName, prefix, namespaceURI) and createAttributeNS(localName, prefix, namespaceURI, value) functions will be used to create Element and Attr nodes. The default is FALSE, to keep backward compatibilty. Subclasses must override this function and return 'true' to create namespace aware nodes.
Returns:
- boolean - namespace awareness

public XMLDocument createDocument()
Creates a document node. This method cannot return a null pointer.
Returns:
The created document
