Saxon.Api
Class Processor


public class Processor
implements object

The Processor class serves three purposes: it allows global Saxon configuration options to be set; it acts as a factory for generating XQuery, XPath, and XSLT compilers; and it owns certain shared resources such as the Saxon NamePool and compiled schemas. This is the first object that a Saxon application should create. Once established, a Processor may be used in multiple threads.

Constructor Detail

Processor

public Processor()

Create a new Processor. This Processor will have capabilities that depend on the version of the software that has been loaded, and on the features that have been licensed.


Processor

public Processor(bool licensedEdition)

Create a Processor.

Parameters:
licensedEdition -
Set to true if the Processor is to use a licensed edition of Saxon (that is, Saxon-PE or Saxon-EE). If true, the Processor will attempt to enable the capabilities of the licensed edition of Saxon, according to the version of the software that is loaded, and will verify the license key. If false, the Processor will load a default Configuration that gives restricted capability and does not require a license, regardless of which version of the software is actually being run.

Processor

public Processor(bool licensedEdition,
                 bool loadLocally)

Create a Processor.

Parameters:
licensedEdition -
Set to true if the Processor is to use a licensed edition of Saxon (that is, Saxon-PE or Saxon-EE). If true, the Processor will attempt to enable the capabilities of the licensed edition of Saxon, according to the version of the software that is loaded, and will verify the license key. If false, the Processor will load a default Configuration that gives restricted capability and does not require a license, regardless of which version of the software is actually being run.
loadLocally -
This option has no effect at this release.

Processor

public Processor(System.IO.Stream configurationFile)

Create a Processor, based on configuration information supplied in a configuration file.

Not fully supported in this release: for experimental use only.

Parameters:
configurationFile -
A stream holding the text of the XML configuration file. Details of the file format can be found in the Saxon documentation.

Property Detail

ProductTitle

public string ProductTitle {get; }

Get the full name of the Saxon product version implemented by this Processor


ProductVersion

public string ProductVersion {get; }

Get the Saxon product version number (for example, "9.2.0.2")


Edition

public string Edition {get; }

Get the Saxon product edition (for example, "EE" for Enterprise Edition)


SchemaManager

public SchemaManager SchemaManager {get; }

Gets the SchemaManager for the Processor. Returns null if the Processor is not schema-aware.


XmlResolver

public XmlResolver XmlResolver {get; set; }

An XmlResolver, which will be used while compiling and running queries, XPath expressions, and stylesheets, if no other XmlResolver is nominated

By default an XmlUrlResolver is used. This means that the responsibility for resolving and dereferencing URIs rests with the .NET platform, not with the GNU Classpath.

When Saxon invokes a user-written XmlResolver, the GetEntity method may return any of: a System.IO.Stream; a System.IO.TextReader; or a java.xml.transform.Source.


ErrorWriter

public TextWriter ErrorWriter {get; set; }

A TextWriter used to get and set the errors from the standard output Writer

By default the Console.Error is used on the .NET platform.

A user can supply their own TextWriter to redirect error messages from the standard output.


XmlVersion

public decimal XmlVersion {get; set; }

The XML version used in this Processor (for example, this determines what characters are permitted in a name)

The value must be 1.0 or 1.1, as a decimal. The default version is currently 1.0, but may change in the future.


Implementation

public net.sf.saxon.Configuration Implementation {get; }

The underlying Configuration object in the Saxon implementation

This property provides access to internal methods in the Saxon engine that are not specifically exposed in the .NET API. In general these methods should be considered to be less stable than the classes in the Saxon.Api namespace.

The internal methods follow Java naming conventions rather than .NET conventions.

Information about the returned object (and the objects it provides access to) is included in the Saxon JavaDoc docmentation, available online.


JProcessor

public net.sf.saxon.s9api.Processor JProcessor {get; }

Method Detail

NewDocumentBuilder

public DocumentBuilder NewDocumentBuilder()

Create a new DocumentBuilder, which may be used to build XDM documents from a variety of sources.

Returns:
A new DocumentBuilder

NewXQueryCompiler

public XQueryCompiler NewXQueryCompiler()

Create a new XQueryCompiler, which may be used to compile XQuery queries.

The returned XQueryCompiler retains a live link to the Processor, and may be affected by subsequent changes to the Processor.

Returns:
A new XQueryCompiler

NewXsltCompiler

public XsltCompiler NewXsltCompiler()

Create a new XsltCompiler, which may be used to compile XSLT stylesheets.

The returned XsltCompiler retains a live link to the Processor, and may be affected by subsequent changes to the Processor.

Returns:
A new XsltCompiler

NewXPathCompiler

public XPathCompiler NewXPathCompiler()

Create a new XPathCompiler, which may be used to compile XPath expressions.

The returned XPathCompiler retains a live link to the Processor, and may be affected by subsequent changes to the Processor.

Returns:
A new XPathCompiler

NewSerializer

public Serializer NewSerializer()

Create a Serializer

Returns:
a new Serializer

NewSerializer

public Serializer NewSerializer(System.IO.TextWriter textWriter)

Create a Serializer initialized to write to a given Writer. Closing the writer after use is the responsibility of the caller.

Parameters:
textWriter -
writer The TextWriter to which the Serializer will write
Returns:
a new Serializer

NewSerializer

public Serializer NewSerializer(System.IO.Stream stream)

Create a Serializer initialized to write to a given OutputStream. Closing the output stream after use is the responsibility of the caller.

Parameters:
stream -
stream The OutputStream to which the Serializer will write
Returns:
a new Serializer

DeclareCollation

public void DeclareCollation(System.Uri uri,
System.Globalization.CompareInfo compareInfo,
System.Globalization.CompareOptions options)

Create a collation based on a given CompareInfo and CompareOptions

Parameters:
uri -
The collation URI to be used within the XPath expression to refer to this collation
compareInfo -
The CompareInfo, which determines the language-specific collation rules to be used
options -
Options to be used in performing comparisons, for example whether they are to be case-blind and/or accent-blind

RegisterCollection

public void RegisterCollection(System.Uri collectionUri,
System.Collections.IEnumerable contents)

Register a named collection. A collection is identified by a URI (the collection URI), and its content is represented by an IEnumerable that enumerates the contents of the collection. The values delivered by this enumeration are Uri values, which can be mapped to nodes using the registered XmlResolver.

Collections should be stable: that is, two calls to retrieve the same collection URI should return the same sequence of document URIs. This requirement is imposed by the W3C specifications, but in the case of a user-defined collection it is not enforced by the Saxon product.

A collection may be replaced by specifying the URI of an existing collection.

Collections registered with a processor are available to all queries and stylesheets running under the control of that processor. Collections should not normally be registered while queries and transformations are in progress.

Parameters:
collectionUri -
The URI used to identify the collection in a call of the XPath collection() function. The default collection is registered by supplying null as the value of this argument (this is the collection returned when the XPath collection() function is called with no arguments).
contents -
An enumerable object that represents the contents of the collection, as a sequence of document URIs. The enumerator returned by this IEnumerable object must return instances of the Uri class.

RegisterExtensionFunction

public void RegisterExtensionFunction(ExtensionFunctionDefinition function)

Register an extension function with the Processor

Parameters:
function -
An object that defines the extension function, including its name, arity, arguments types, and a reference to the class that implements the extension function call.

WriteXdmValue

public void WriteXdmValue(XdmValue sequence,
XmlDestination destination)

Copy an XdmValue to an XmlDestination

This method can be used to copy any kind of XdmValue to any kind of XdmDestination. The supplied XdmValue is first converted to an XML document according to the rules of the XSLT/XQuery serialization specification (for example, if the XdmValue is a sequence of atomic values, they will be turned in a text node in which the values are converted to strings and separated by single spaces). The resulting document is then written to the supplied XmlDestination.

Parameters:
sequence -
The value to be written
destination -
The destination to which the value should be written

SetProperty

public void SetProperty(string name,
string value)

Set a configuration property

This method provides the ability to set named properties of the configuration. The property names are set as strings, whose values can be found in the Java class net.sf.saxon.FeatureKeys. The property values are always strings. Properties whose values are other types are not available via this interface: however all properties have an effective equivalent whose value is a string. Note that on/off properties are set using the strings "true" and "false".

Method added in Saxon 9.1

Parameters:
name -
The property name
value -
The property value

GetProperty

public String GetProperty(string name)

Get the value of a configuration property

This method provides the ability to get named properties of the configuration. The property names are supplied as strings, whose values can be found in the Java class net.sf.saxon.FeatureKeys. The property values are always returned as strings. Properties whose values are other types are returned by converting the value to a string. Note that on/off properties are returned using the strings "true" and "false".

Method added in Saxon 9.1

Parameters:
name -
The property name
Returns:
The property value, as a string; or null if the property is unset.
