Package nu.xom

nu.xom is the core package of XOM that contains all the basic classes representing the different kinds of nodes: elements, attributes, comments, text nodes, and so forth.

          Description

Class Summary
Attribute This class represents an attribute such as type="empty" or xlink:href="http://www.example.com".
Attribute.Type Uses the type-safe enumeration design pattern to represent attribute types, as specified by XML DTDs.
Builder This class is responsible for creating XOM Document objects from a URL, file, string, or input stream by reading an XML document.
Comment This class represents an XML comment such as <-- This is a comment-->.
DocType Represents an XML document type declaration such as <!DOCTYPE book SYSTEM "docbookx.dtd">.
Document The Document class represents a complete XML document including its root element, prolog, and epilog.
Element This class represents an XML element.
Elements A read-only list of elements for traversal purposes.
Namespace Represents a namespace in scope.
Node The generic superclass for all the contents of an XML document.
NodeFactory Builders use a NodeFactory object to construct each Node object (Element, Text, Attribute, etc.) they add to the tree.
Nodes Implements a list of nodes for traversal purposes.
ParentNode The generic superclass for nodes that have children.
ProcessingInstruction This class represents an XML processing instruction.
Serializer Outputs a Document object in a specific encoding using various options for controlling white space, normalization, indenting, line breaking, and base URIs.
Text This class represents a run of text.
XPathContext Provides namespace prefix bindings for use in an XPath expression.
 

Exception Summary
CycleException Indicates an attempt to insert an ancestor element as one of its own descendants.
IllegalAddException Indicates an attempt to add a node in a wrong place; for instance adding a Text node to a Document object.
IllegalCharacterDataException Indicates an attempt to create text content that is not allowed in XML 1.0.
IllegalDataException Indicates an attempt to set some value to malformed content; for instance by adding a string containing a null or a vertical tab to a text node, or using white space in an element name.
IllegalNameException Indicates an attempt to assign a name that is not a legal XML name.
IllegalTargetException Indicates an attempt to assign a processing instruction target that is not a legal XML 1.0 processing instruction target.
MalformedURIException Indicates that a string intended for use as a URI or URI reference (typically a namespace name or a base URI) is not syntactically correct according to RFC 3986.
MultipleParentException Indicates an attempt to add a node that already has a parent to the same or a different parent.
NamespaceConflictException Signals an attempt to set a namespace in a way that conflicts with an existing namespace; for instance, adding an attribute to an element that has the same prefix as the element but maps it to a different URI.
NoSuchAttributeException Indicates that an attribute with a certain name and/or namespace does not exist.
NoSuchChildException Indicates that a child with a certain name and/or namespace does not exist.
ParsingException The generic superclass for all the checked exceptions thrown in XOM.
UnavailableCharacterException Thrown when serializing documents that contain characters not available in the current encoding, and which cannot be escaped (for instance, because they're in an element name or processing instruction data).
ValidityException Signals a validity error in a document being parsed.
WellformednessException Indicates an attempt to do or create something that could not possibly be serialized in a namespace well-formed XML 1.0 document.
XMLException The generic superclass for most runtime exceptions thrown in nu.xom.
XPathException Indicates problems with XPath syntax or evaluation.
XPathTypeException Indicates that an XPath query returned a non-node-set.
 

Package nu.xom Description

nu.xom is the core package of XOM that contains all the basic classes representing the different kinds of nodes: elements, attributes, comments, text nodes, and so forth. It also contains the basic classes for parsing and serializing XML documents, as well as the various exception classes representing the different things that can go wrong while working with XOM.
