Interface DOMImplementationSource


public interface DOMImplementationSource

This interface permits a DOM implementer to supply one or more implementations, based upon requested features and versions, as specified in . Each implemented DOMImplementationSource object is listed in the binding-specific list of available sources so that its DOMImplementation objects are made available.

See also the Document Object Model (DOM) Level 3 Core Specification.

Since:
DOM Level 3

Method Summary
 DOMImplementation getDOMImplementation(java.lang.String features)

Method Detail

getDOMImplementation

public DOMImplementation getDOMImplementation(java.lang.String features)
A method to request the first DOM implementation that supports the specified features.
Parameters:
features - A string that specifies which features and versions are required. This is a space separated list in which each feature is specified by its name optionally followed by a space and a version number. This method returns the first item of the list returned by getDOMImplementationList. As an example, the string "XML 3.0 Traversal +Events 2.0" will request a DOM implementation that supports the module "XML" for its 3.0 version, a module that support of the "Traversal" module for any version, and the module "Events" for its 2.0 version. The module "Events" must be accessible using the method Node.getFeature() and DOMImplementation.getFeature().
Returns:
The first DOM implementation that support the desired features, or null if this source has none.

getDOMImplementationList

public DOMImplementationList getDOMImplementationList(java.lang.String features)
A method to request a list of DOM implementations that support the specified features and versions, as specified in .
Parameters:
features - A string that specifies which features and versions are required. This is a space separated list in which each feature is specified by its name optionally followed by a space and a version number. This is something like: "XML 3.0 Traversal +Events 2.0"
Returns:
A list of DOM implementations that support the desired features.
