Method Detail

setOutputStream

public void setOutputStream(java.io.OutputStream output)
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Specifies an output stream to which the document should be serialized. This method should not be called while the serializer is in the process of serializing a document.

The encoding specified in the output Properties is used, or if no encoding was specified, the default for the selected output method.

Parameters:
output - The output stream

getOutputStream

public java.io.OutputStream getOutputStream()
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Get the output stream where the events will be serialized to.
Returns:
reference to the result stream, or null of only a writer was set.

setWriter

public void setWriter(java.io.Writer writer)
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Specifies a writer to which the document should be serialized. This method should not be called while the serializer is in the process of serializing a document.

The encoding specified for the output Properties must be identical to the output format used with the writer.

Parameters:
writer - The output writer stream

getWriter

public java.io.Writer getWriter()
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Get the character stream where the events will be serialized to.
Returns:
Reference to the result Writer, or null.

setOutputFormat

public void setOutputFormat(java.util.Properties format)
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Specifies an output format for this serializer. It the serializer has already been associated with an output format, it will switch to the new format. This method should not be called while the serializer is in the process of serializing a document.
Parameters:
format - The output format to use

getOutputFormat

public java.util.Properties getOutputFormat()
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Returns the output format for this serializer.
Returns:
The output format in use

asContentHandler

public ContentHandler asContentHandler()
                                throws java.io.IOException
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Return a ContentHandler interface into this serializer. If the serializer does not support the ContentHandler interface, it should return null.
Returns:
A ContentHandler interface into this serializer, or null if the serializer is not SAX 2 capable
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured

asDOMSerializer

public DOMSerializer asDOMSerializer()
                              throws java.io.IOException
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Return a DOMSerializer interface into this serializer. If the serializer does not support the DOMSerializer interface, it should return null.
Returns:
A DOMSerializer interface into this serializer, or null if the serializer is not DOM capable
Throws:
java.io.IOException - An I/O exception occured

reset

public boolean reset()
Deprecated. Use org.apache.xml.serializer.Serializer
Resets the serializer. If this method returns true, the serializer may be used for subsequent serialization of new documents. It is possible to change the output format and output stream prior to serializing, or to use the existing output format and output stream.
Returns:
True if serializer has been reset and can be reused
