XMLStringDefault

public XMLStringDefault(java.lang.String str)
Create a XMLStringDefault object from a String

public void dispatchCharactersEvents(ContentHandler ch)
                              throws SAXException
Directly call the characters method on the passed ContentHandler for the string-value. Multiple calls to the ContentHandler's characters methods may well occur for a single call to this method.
Specified by:
dispatchCharactersEvents in interface XMLString
Parameters:
ch - A non-null reference to a ContentHandler.
Throws:
SAXException -  

dispatchAsComment

public void dispatchAsComment(LexicalHandler lh)
                       throws SAXException
Directly call the comment method on the passed LexicalHandler for the string-value.

fixWhiteSpace

public XMLString fixWhiteSpace(boolean trimHead,

                               boolean doublePunctuationSpaces)
Conditionally trim all leading and trailing whitespace in the specified String. All strings of white space are replaced by a single space character (#x20), except spaces after punctuation which receive double spaces if doublePunctuationSpaces is true. This function may be useful to a formatter, but to get first class results, the formatter should probably do it's own white space handling based on the semantics of the formatting object.

Parameters:
index - the index of the character.
Returns:
the character at the specified index of this string. The first character is at index 0.
Throws:

public void getChars(int srcBegin,
                     int srcEnd,
                     char[] dst,

hashCode in class java.lang.Object

indexOf

public int indexOf(int ch)
Returns the index within this string of the first occurrence of the specified character. If a character with value ch occurs in the character sequence represented by this String object, then the index of the first such occurrence is returned -- that is, the smallest value k such that:
 this.charAt(k) == ch
 
is true. If no such character occurs in this string, then -1 is returned.
Specified by:
indexOf in interface XMLString
Parameters:
ch - a character.
Returns:
the index of the first occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object, or -1 if the character does not occur.

indexOf

public int indexOf(int ch,
                   int fromIndex)
Returns the index within this string of the first occurrence of the specified character, starting the search at the specified index.

If a character with value ch occurs in the character sequence represented by this String object at an index no smaller than fromIndex, then the index of the first such occurrence is returned--that is, the smallest value k such that:

 (this.charAt(k) == ch) && (k >= fromIndex)
 
is true. If no such character occurs in this string at or after position fromIndex, then -1 is returned.

There is no restriction on the value of fromIndex. If it is negative, it has the same effect as if it were zero: this entire string may be searched. If it is greater than the length of this string, it has the same effect as if it were equal to the length of this string: -1 is returned.

Specified by:
indexOf in interface XMLString
Parameters:
ch - a character.
fromIndex - the index to start the search from.
Returns:
the index of the first occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object that is greater than or equal to fromIndex, or -1 if the character does not occur.

lastIndexOf

public int lastIndexOf(int ch)
Returns the index within this string of the last occurrence of the specified character. That is, the index returned is the largest value k such that:
 this.charAt(k) == ch
 
is true. The String is searched backwards starting at the last character.
Specified by:
lastIndexOf in interface XMLString
Parameters:
ch - a character.
Returns:
the index of the last occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object, or -1 if the character does not occur.

lastIndexOf

public int lastIndexOf(int ch,
                       int fromIndex)
Returns the index within this string of the last occurrence of the specified character, searching backward starting at the specified index. That is, the index returned is the largest value k such that:
 this.charAt(k) == ch) && (k <= fromIndex)
 
is true.
Specified by:
lastIndexOf in interface XMLString
Parameters:
ch - a character.
fromIndex - the index to start the search from. There is no restriction on the value of fromIndex. If it is greater than or equal to the length of this string, it has the same effect as if it were equal to one less than the length of this string: this entire string may be searched. If it is negative, it has the same effect as if it were -1: -1 is returned.
Returns:
the index of the last occurrence of the character in the character sequence represented by this object that is less than or equal to fromIndex, or -1 if the character does not occur before that point.

indexOf

public int indexOf(java.lang.String str)

If it is negative, it has the same effect as if it were -1: -1 is returned.
Returns:

Returns:
the String, converted to lowercase.
See Also:
Character.toLowerCase(char), String.toUpperCase(Locale)

toLowerCase

public XMLString toLowerCase()
Converts all of the characters in this String to lower case using the rules of the default locale, which is returned by Locale.getDefault.

Specified by:
toLowerCase in interface XMLString
Returns:
the string, converted to lowercase.
See Also:
Character.toLowerCase(char), String.toLowerCase(Locale)

toUpperCase

public XMLString toUpperCase(java.util.Locale locale)
Converts all of the characters in this String to upper case using the rules of the given locale.
Specified by:
toUpperCase in interface XMLString
Parameters:

See Also:
Character.toUpperCase(char), String.toLowerCase(Locale)

toUpperCase

public XMLString toUpperCase()
Converts all of the characters in this String to upper case using the rules of the default locale, which is returned by Locale.getDefault.

If no character in this string has a different uppercase version, based on calling the toUpperCase method defined by Character, then the original string is returned.

Otherwise, this method creates a new String object representing a character sequence identical in length to the character sequence represented by this String object and with every character equal to the result of applying the method Character.toUpperCase to the corresponding character of this String object.

Examples:

 "Fahrvergnügen".toUpperCase() returns "FAHRVERGNÜGEN"
 "Visit Ljubinje!".toUpperCase() returns "VISIT LJUBINJE!"
 
Specified by:
toUpperCase in interface XMLString
Returns:
the string, converted to uppercase.
See Also:

trim

public XMLString trim()
Removes white space from both ends of this string.

If this String object represents an empty character sequence, or the first and last characters of character sequence represented by this String object both have codes greater than '\u0020' (the space character), then a reference to this String object is returned.

Otherwise, if there is no character with a code greater than '\u0020' in the string, then a new String object representing an empty string is created and returned.

Otherwise, let k be the index of the first character in the string whose code is greater than '\u0020', and let m be the index of the last character in the string whose code is greater than '\u0020'. A new String object is created, representing the substring of this string that begins with the character at index k and ends with the character at index m-that is, the result of this.substring(km+1).

This method may be used to trim whitespace from the beginning and end of a string; in fact, it trims all ASCII control characters as well.

Specified by:
trim in interface XMLString

this string, with white space removed from the front and end.
