DOMSource

public class DOMSource extends Object
implements Source

Acts as a holder for a transformation Source tree in the form of a Document Object Model (DOM) tree.

Note that XSLT requires namespace support. Attempting to transform a DOM that was not contructed with a namespace-aware parser may result in errors. Parsers can be made namespace aware by calling setNamespaceAware(boolean).

Constant Summary

String FEATURE If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the Transformer supports Source input of this type.

Public Constructor Summary

DOMSource()

Zero-argument default constructor.

DOMSource(Node n)
Create a new input source with a DOM node.
DOMSource(Node node, String systemID)
Create a new input source with a DOM node, and with the system ID also passed in as the base URI.

Public Method Summary

Node
getNode()
Get the node that represents a Source DOM tree.
String
getSystemId()
Get the base ID (URL or system ID) from where URLs will be resolved.
void
setNode(Node node)
Set the node that will represents a Source DOM tree.
void
setSystemId(String systemID)
Set the base ID (URL or system ID) from where URLs will be resolved.

Inherited Method Summary

Constants

public static final String FEATURE

If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the Transformer supports Source input of this type.

Constant Value: "http://javax.xml.transform.dom.DOMSource/feature"

Public Constructors

public DOMSource ()

Zero-argument default constructor. If this constructor is used, and no DOM source is set using setNode(Node) , then the Transformer will create an empty source Document using newDocument().

public DOMSource (Node n)

Create a new input source with a DOM node. The operation will be applied to the subtree rooted at this node. In XSLT, a "/" pattern still means the root of the tree (not the subtree), and the evaluation of global variables and parameters is done from the root node also.

Parameters
n The DOM node that will contain the Source tree.

public DOMSource (Node node, String systemID)

Create a new input source with a DOM node, and with the system ID also passed in as the base URI.

Parameters
node The DOM node that will contain the Source tree.
systemID Specifies the base URI associated with node.

Public Methods

public Node getNode ()

Get the node that represents a Source DOM tree.

Returns
  • The node that is to be transformed.

public String getSystemId ()

Get the base ID (URL or system ID) from where URLs will be resolved.

Returns
  • Base URL for this DOM tree.

public void setNode (Node node)

Set the node that will represents a Source DOM tree.

Parameters
node The node that is to be transformed.

public void setSystemId (String systemID)

Set the base ID (URL or system ID) from where URLs will be resolved.

Parameters
systemID Base URL for this DOM tree.
