Detailed Description

ACEXML_NamespaceSupport provides namespace management operation for an XML parser.

This class encapsulates the logic of Namespace processing: it tracks the declarations currently in force for each context and automatically processes qualified XML 1.0 names into their Namespace parts; it can also be used in reverse for generating XML 1.0 from Namespaces.

Namespace support objects are reusable, but the reset method must be invoked between each session.

Here is a simple session (in Java :-p):

  String parts[] = new String[3];
  NamespaceSupport support = new NamespaceSupport();

  support.declarePrefix("", "");
  support.declarePrefix("dc", "");

  String parts[] = support.processName("p", parts, false);
  System.out.println("Namespace URI: " + parts[0]);
  System.out.println("Local name: " + parts[1]);
  System.out.println("Raw name: " + parts[2]);

  String parts[] = support.processName("dc:title", parts, false);
  System.out.println("Namespace URI: " + parts[0]);
  System.out.println("Local name: " + parts[1]);
  System.out.println("Raw name: " + parts[2]);


Note that this class is optimized for the use case where most elements do not contain Namespace declarations: if the same prefix/URI mapping is repeated for each context (for example), this class will be somewhat less efficient.

Member Function Documentation

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::declarePrefix const ACEXML_Char prefix,
const ACEXML_Char uri

Declare a Namespace prefix. Return -1 if the prefix was illegal or an internal error occured. Return 0 if the prefix gets declared successfully, 1 if the prefix replaces an existing prefix definition.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::getDeclaredPrefixes ACEXML_STR_LIST prefixes  )  const

Return all prefixes declared in current context in the user-supplied list prefixes. It is user's reponsibility to ensure the list was empty originally.

const ACEXML_Char * ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::getPrefix const ACEXML_Char uri  )  const

Return one of the prefixes mapped to a Namespace URI.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::getPrefixes const ACEXML_Char uri,

Return all prefixes currently declared for a URI in the user-supplied list.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::getPrefixes ACEXML_STR_LIST prefixes  )  const

Return all prefixes currently declared in the user-supplied list. @ Known bug: This function should only return user-defined prefixes.

const ACEXML_Char * ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::getURI const ACEXML_Char prefix  )  const

Look up a prefix and get the currently-mapped Namespace URI.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::init void   ) 

Initialize the namespace support object

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::popContext void   ) 

Revert to the previous namespace context.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::processName const ACEXML_Char qName,
const ACEXML_Char *&  uri,
const ACEXML_Char *&  name,
int  is_attribute

Process a raw XML 1.0 name. qName is the raw XML name we want to parse, uri contains the URI string of the raw name. It points to a null string if the namespace is not valid or there's no namespace defined. name contains the original name without the prefix. is_attribute specifies whether the name is an attribute or not. Attributes have different scoping rules from elements.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::pushContext void   ) 

Start a new Namespace context. Prefixes defined in previous context are copied over to the new context.

int ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::reset void   ) 

Reset this Namespace support object for reuse.

Member Data Documentation

ACEXML_NS_CONTEXT* ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::effective_context_ [private]

The effective namespace context.

ACEXML_Namespace_Context_Stack ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::ns_stack_ [private]

Namespace Context stack. When we entering a new namespace context, the old context is duplicated and pushed into this stack.

const ACEXML_Char * ACEXML_NamespaceSupport::XMLNS_PREFIX = ACEXML_XMLNS_PREFIX_name [static]

XMLNS default prefix and URI strings.
