AttributeListImpl

public class AttributeListImpl extends Object
implements AttributeList

This class was deprecated.
This class implements a deprecated interface, AttributeList; that interface has been replaced by Attributes, which is implemented in the AttributesImpl helper class.

Default implementation for AttributeList.

This module, both source code and documentation, is in the Public Domain, and comes with NO WARRANTY. See http://www.saxproject.org for further information.

AttributeList implements the deprecated SAX1 AttributeList interface, and has been replaced by the new SAX2 AttributesImpl interface.

This class provides a convenience implementation of the SAX AttributeList interface. This implementation is useful both for SAX parser writers, who can use it to provide attributes to the application, and for SAX application writers, who can use it to create a persistent copy of an element's attribute specifications:

 private AttributeList myatts;

 public void startElement (String name, AttributeList atts)
 {
              // create a persistent copy of the attribute list
              // for use outside this method
   myatts = new AttributeListImpl(atts);
   [...]
 }
 

Please note that SAX parsers are not required to use this class to provide an implementation of AttributeList; it is supplied only as an optional convenience. In particular, parser writers are encouraged to invent more efficient implementations.

Public Constructors

public AttributeListImpl ()

Create an empty attribute list.

This constructor is most useful for parser writers, who will use it to create a single, reusable attribute list that can be reset with the clear method between elements.

public AttributeListImpl (AttributeList atts)

Construct a persistent copy of an existing attribute list.

This constructor is most useful for application writers, who will use it to create a persistent copy of an existing attribute list.

Parameters
atts The attribute list to copy
