Interface DTM

public interface DTM

DTM is an XML document model expressed as a table rather than an object tree. It attempts to provide an interface to a parse tree that has very little object creation. (DTM implementations may also support incremental construction of the model, but that's hidden from the DTM API.)

Nodes in the DTM are identified by integer "handles". A handle must be unique within a process, and carries both node identification and document identification. It must be possible to compare two handles (and thus their nodes) for identity with "==".

Namespace URLs, local-names, and expanded-names can all be represented by and tested as integer ID values. An expanded name represents (and may or may not directly contain) a combination of the URL ID, and the local-name ID. Note that the namespace URL id can be 0, which should have the meaning that the namespace is null. For consistancy, zero should not be used for a local-name index.

Text content of a node is represented by an index and length, permitting efficient storage such as a shared FastStringBuffer.

The model of the tree, as well as the general navigation model, is that of XPath 1.0, for the moment. The model will eventually be adapted to match the XPath 2.0 data model, XML Schema, and InfoSet.

DTM does _not_ directly support the W3C's Document Object Model. However, it attempts to come close enough that an implementation of DTM can be created that wraps a DOM and vice versa.

Please Note: The DTM API is still Subject To Change. This wouldn't affect most users, but might require updating some extensions.

The largest change being contemplated is a reconsideration of the Node Handle representation. We are still not entirely sure that an integer packed with two numeric subfields is really the best solution. It has been suggested that we move up to a Long, to permit more nodes per document without having to reduce the number of slots in the DTMManager. There's even been a proposal that we replace these integers with "cursor" objects containing the internal node id and a pointer to the actual DTM object; this might reduce the need to continuously consult the DTMManager to retrieve the latter, and might provide a useful "hook" back into normal Java heap management. But changing this datatype would have huge impact on Xalan's internals -- especially given Java's lack of C-style typedefs -- so we won't cut over unless we're convinced the new solution really would be an improvement!

Return an indication of whether the processor has read the complete DTD. Its value is a boolean. If it is false, then certain properties (indicated in their descriptions below) may be unknown. If it is true, those properties are never unknown.
Returns:
true if all declarations were processed; false otherwise.

getDocumentTypeDeclarationSystemIdentifier

public java.lang.String getDocumentTypeDeclarationSystemIdentifier()
A document type declaration information item has the following properties: 1. [system identifier] The system identifier of the external subset, if it exists. Otherwise this property has no value.
Returns:
the system identifier String object, or null if there is none.

getDocumentTypeDeclarationPublicIdentifier

public java.lang.String getDocumentTypeDeclarationPublicIdentifier()
Return the public identifier of the external subset, normalized as described in 4.2.2 External Entities [XML]. If there is no external subset or if it has no public identifier, this property has no value.
Returns:
the public identifier String object, or null if there is none.

getElementById

public int getElementById(java.lang.String elementId)
Returns the Element whose ID is given by elementId. If no such element exists, returns DTM.NULL. Behavior is not defined if more than one element has this ID. Attributes (including those with the name "ID") are not of type ID unless so defined by DTD/Schema information available to the DTM implementation. Implementations that do not know whether attributes are of type ID or not are expected to return DTM.NULL.

%REVIEW% Presumably IDs are still scoped to a single document, and this operation searches only within a single document, right? Wouldn't want collisions between DTMs in the same process.

Parameters:
elementId - The unique id value for an element.
Returns:
The handle of the matching element.

getUnparsedEntityURI

public java.lang.String getUnparsedEntityURI(java.lang.String name)
The getUnparsedEntityURI function returns the URI of the unparsed entity with the specified name in the same document as the context node (see [3.3 Unparsed Entities]). It returns the empty string if there is no such entity.

XML processors may choose to use the System Identifier (if one is provided) to resolve the entity, rather than the URI in the Public Identifier. The details are dependent on the processor, and we would have to support some form of plug-in resolver to handle this properly. Currently, we simply return the System Identifier if present, and hope that it a usable URI or that our caller can map it to one. %REVIEW% Resolve Public Identifiers... or consider changing function name.

If we find a relative URI reference, XML expects it to be resolved in terms of the base URI of the document. The DOM doesn't do that for us, and it isn't entirely clear whether that should be done here; currently that's pushed up to a higher level of our application. (Note that DOM Level 1 didn't store the document's base URI.) %REVIEW% Consider resolving Relative URIs.

(The DOM's statement that "An XML processor may choose to completely expand entities before the structure model is passed to the DOM" refers only to parsed entities, not unparsed, and hence doesn't affect this function.)

Parameters:
name - A string containing the Entity Name of the unparsed entity.
Returns:
String containing the URI of the Unparsed Entity, or an empty string if no such entity exists.

supportsPreStripping

public boolean supportsPreStripping()
Return true if the xsl:strip-space or xsl:preserve-space was processed during construction of the document contained in this DTM. NEEDSDOC ($objectName$) @return

isNodeAfter

public boolean isNodeAfter(int firstNodeHandle,
                           int secondNodeHandle)
Figure out whether nodeHandle2 should be considered as being later in the document than nodeHandle1, in Document Order as defined by the XPath model. This may not agree with the ordering defined by other XML applications.

There are some cases where ordering isn't defined, and neither are the results of this function -- though we'll generally return true.

%REVIEW% Make sure this does the right thing with attribute nodes!!!

%REVIEW% Consider renaming for clarity. Perhaps isDocumentOrder(a,b)?

Parameters:
firstNodeHandle - DOM Node to perform position comparison on.
secondNodeHandle - DOM Node to perform position comparison on.
Returns:
false if secondNode comes before firstNode, otherwise return true. You can think of this as (firstNode.documentOrderPosition <= secondNode.documentOrderPosition).

isCharacterElementContentWhitespace

public boolean isCharacterElementContentWhitespace(int nodeHandle)
2. [element content whitespace] A boolean indicating whether a text node represents white space appearing within element content (see [XML], 2.10 "White Space Handling"). Note that validating XML processors are required by XML 1.0 to provide this information... but that DOM Level 2 did not support it, since it depends on knowledge of the DTD which DOM2 could not guarantee would be available.

If there is no declaration for the containing element, an XML processor must assume that the whitespace could be meaningful and return false. If no declaration has been read, but the [all declarations processed] property of the document information item is false (so there may be an unread declaration), then the value of this property is indeterminate for white space characters and should probably be reported as false. It is always false for text nodes that contain anything other than (or in addition to) white space.

Note too that it always returns false for non-Text nodes.

%REVIEW% Joe wants to rename this isWhitespaceInElementContent() for clarity

Parameters:
nodeHandle - the node ID.
Returns:
true if the node definitely represents whitespace in element content; false otherwise.

isDocumentAllDeclarationsProcessed

public boolean isDocumentAllDeclarationsProcessed(int documentHandle)
10. [all declarations processed] This property is not strictly speaking part of the infoset of the document. Rather it is an indication of whether the processor has read the complete DTD. Its value is a boolean. If it is false, then certain properties (indicated in their descriptions below) may be unknown. If it is true, those properties are never unknown.
Parameters:
documentHandle - A node handle that must identify a document.
Returns:
true if all declarations were processed; false otherwise.

isAttributeSpecified

public boolean isAttributeSpecified(int attributeHandle)
5. [specified] A flag indicating whether this attribute was actually specified in the start-tag of its element, or was defaulted from the DTD (or schema).
Parameters:
attributeHandle - The attribute handle
Returns:
true if the attribute was specified; false if it was defaulted or the handle doesn't refer to an attribute node.

dispatchCharactersEvents

public void dispatchCharactersEvents(int nodeHandle,
                                     ContentHandler ch,
                                     boolean normalize)
                              throws SAXException
Directly call the characters method on the passed ContentHandler for the string-value of the given node (see http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath#data-model for the definition of a node's string-value). Multiple calls to the ContentHandler's characters methods may well occur for a single call to this method.
Parameters:
nodeHandle - The node ID.
ch - A non-null reference to a ContentHandler.
normalize - true if the content should be normalized according to the rules for the XPath normalize-space function.
Throws:
SAXException -  

dispatchToEvents

public void dispatchToEvents(int nodeHandle,
                             ContentHandler ch)
                      throws SAXException
Directly create SAX parser events representing the XML content of a DTM subtree. This is a "serialize" operation.
Parameters:
nodeHandle - The node ID.
ch - A non-null reference to a ContentHandler.
Throws:
SAXException -  

getNode

public Node getNode(int nodeHandle)
Return an DOM node for the given node.
Parameters:
nodeHandle - The node ID.
Returns:
A node representation of the DTM node.

needsTwoThreads

public boolean needsTwoThreads()
Returns:
true iff we're building this model incrementally (eg we're partnered with a CoroutineParser) and thus require that the transformation and the parse run simultaneously. Guidance to the DTMManager.

getContentHandler

public ContentHandler getContentHandler()
Return this DTM's content handler, if it has one.
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to SAX events.

getLexicalHandler

public LexicalHandler getLexicalHandler()
Return this DTM's lexical handler, if it has one. %REVIEW% Should this return null if constrution already done/begun?
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to lexical SAX events.

getEntityResolver

public EntityResolver getEntityResolver()
Return this DTM's EntityResolver, if it has one.
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to SAX entity ref events.

getDTDHandler

public DTDHandler getDTDHandler()
Return this DTM's DTDHandler, if it has one.
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to SAX dtd events.

getErrorHandler

public ErrorHandler getErrorHandler()
Return this DTM's ErrorHandler, if it has one.
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to SAX error events.

getDeclHandler

public DeclHandler getDeclHandler()
Return this DTM's DeclHandler, if it has one.
Returns:
null if this model doesn't respond to SAX Decl events.

appendChild

public void appendChild(int newChild,
                        boolean clone,
                        boolean cloneDepth)
Append a child to "the end of the document". Please note that the node is always cloned in a base DTM, since our basic behavior is immutable so nodes can't be removed from their previous location.

%REVIEW% DTM maintains an insertion cursor which performs a depth-first tree walk as nodes come in, and this operation is really equivalent to: insertionCursor.appendChild(document.importNode(newChild))) where the insert point is the last element that was appended (or the last one popped back to by an end-element operation).

Parameters:
newChild - Must be a valid new node handle.
clone - true if the child should be cloned into the document.
cloneDepth - if the clone argument is true, specifies that the clone should include all it's children.

appendTextChild

public void appendTextChild(java.lang.String str)
Append a text node child that will be constructed from a string, to the end of the document. Behavior is otherwise like appendChild().
Parameters:
str - Non-null reference to a string.

getSourceLocatorFor

public SourceLocator getSourceLocatorFor(int node)
Get the location of a node in the source document.
Parameters:
node - an int value
Returns:
a SourceLocator value or null if no location is available

documentRegistration

public void documentRegistration()
As the DTM is registered with the DTMManager, this method will be called. This will give the DTM implementation a chance to initialize any subsystems that are required to build the DTM

documentRelease

public void documentRelease()
As documents are released from the DTMManager, the DTM implementation will be notified of the event. This will allow the DTM implementation to shutdown any subsystem activity that may of been assoiated with the active DTM Implementation.

migrateTo

public void migrateTo(DTMManager manager)
Migrate a DTM built with an old DTMManager to a new DTMManager. After the migration, the new DTMManager will treat the DTM as one that is built by itself. This is used to support DTM sharing between multiple transformations.
Parameters:
manager - the DTMManager
