Method Detail

asNode

public int asNode(XPathContext xctxt)
           throws TransformerException
Return the first node out of the nodeset, if this expression is a nodeset expression. This is the default implementation for nodesets.

WARNING: Do not mutate this class from this function!

Parameters:
xctxt - The XPath runtime context.
Returns:
the first node out of the nodeset, or DTM.NULL.
Overrides:
asNode in class LocPathIterator

nextNode

public int nextNode()
Returns the next node in the set and advances the position of the iterator in the set. After a NodeIterator is created, the first call to nextNode() returns the first node in the set.
Returns:
The next Node in the set being iterated over, or null if there are no more members in that set.
Overrides:
nextNode in class LocPathIterator

getAxis

public int getAxis()
Returns the axis being iterated, if it is known.
Returns:
Axis.CHILD, etc., or -1 if the axis is not known or is of multiple types.
Overrides:
getAxis in class LocPathIterator
