Saxon.Api
Class XQueryEvaluator


public class XQueryEvaluator
implements IEnumerable

An XQueryEvaluator represents a compiled and loaded query ready for execution. The XQueryEvaluator holds details of the dynamic evaluation context for the query.

An XQueryEvaluator should not be used concurrently in multiple threads. It is safe, however, to reuse the object within a single thread to run the same query several times. Running the query does not change the context that has been established.

An XQueryEvaluator is always constructed by running the Load method of an XQueryExecutable.


Property Summary
 XdmItem ContextItem

The context item for the query.

 SchemaValidationMode SchemaValidationMode

The SchemaValidationMode to be used in this transformation, especially for documents loaded using the doc(), document(), or collection() functions.

 XmlResolver InputXmlResolver

The XmlResolver to be used at run-time to resolve and dereference URIs supplied to the doc() function.

 StandardLogger TraceFunctionDestination Destination for output of messages produced using <trace()>.

If no specific destination is supplied by the caller, message information will be written to the standard error stream.

 net.sf.saxon.query.DynamicQueryContext Implementation

Escape hatch to the net.sf.saxon.query.DynamicQueryContext object in the underlying Java implementation

 
Method Summary
 void SetExternalVariable(QName name, XdmValue value)

Set the value of an external variable declared in the query.

 XdmValue Evaluate()

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an XdmValue (that is, a sequence of nodes and/or atomic values).

 XdmItem EvaluateSingle()

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an XdmItem (that is, a single node or atomic value).

 IEnumerator GetEnumerator()

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an IEnumerator (that is, an enumerator over a sequence of nodes and/or atomic values).

 void Run(XmlDestination destination)

Evaluate the query, sending the result to a specified destination.

 XdmNode[] RunUpdate()

Execute an updating query.

 XdmValue CallFunction(QName function, Saxon.Api.XdmValue[] arguments)

Call a global user-defined function in the compiled query.

 
Property Detail

ContextItem

public XdmItem ContextItem {get; set; }

The context item for the query.

This may be either a node or an atomic value. Most commonly it will be a document node, which might be constructed using the LoadDocument method of the Processor object.


SchemaValidationMode

public SchemaValidationMode SchemaValidationMode {get; set; }

The SchemaValidationMode to be used in this transformation, especially for documents loaded using the doc(), document(), or collection() functions.


InputXmlResolver

public XmlResolver InputXmlResolver {get; set; }

The XmlResolver to be used at run-time to resolve and dereference URIs supplied to the doc() function.


TraceFunctionDestination

public StandardLogger TraceFunctionDestination {get; set; }
Destination for output of messages produced using <trace()>.

If no specific destination is supplied by the caller, message information will be written to the standard error stream.

The supplied destination is ignored if a TraceListener is in use.

Property added in Saxon 9.1

Since 9.6. Changed in 9.6 to use a StandardLogger


Implementation

public net.sf.saxon.query.DynamicQueryContext Implementation {get; }

Escape hatch to the net.sf.saxon.query.DynamicQueryContext object in the underlying Java implementation


Method Detail

SetExternalVariable

public void SetExternalVariable(QName name,
XdmValue value)

Set the value of an external variable declared in the query.

Parameters:
name -
The name of the external variable, expressed as a QName. If an external variable of this name has been declared in the query prolog, the given value will be assigned to the variable. If the variable has not been declared, calling this method has no effect (it is not an error).
value -
The value to be given to the external variable. If the variable declaration defines a required type for the variable, then this value must match the required type: no conversions are applied.

Evaluate

public XdmValue Evaluate()
throws
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an XdmValue (that is, a sequence of nodes and/or atomic values).

Returns:
An XdmValue representing the results of the query
Throws:
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - Throws a DynamicError if any run-time failure occurs while evaluating the query.

EvaluateSingle

public XdmItem EvaluateSingle()
throws
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an XdmItem (that is, a single node or atomic value).

Returns:
An XdmItem representing the result of the query, or null if the query returns an empty sequence. If the query returns a sequence of more than one item, any items after the first are ignored.
Throws:
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - Throws a DynamicError if any run-time failure occurs while evaluating the expression.

GetEnumerator

public IEnumerator GetEnumerator()
throws
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Evaluate the query, returning the result as an IEnumerator (that is, an enumerator over a sequence of nodes and/or atomic values).

Returns:
An enumerator over the sequence that represents the results of the query. Each object in this sequence will be an instance of XdmItem. Note that the query may be evaluated lazily, which means that a successful response from this method does not imply that the query has executed successfully: failures may be reported later while retrieving items from the iterator.
Throws:
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - Throws a DynamicError if any run-time failure occurs while evaluating the expression.

Run

public void Run(XmlDestination destination)
throws
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Evaluate the query, sending the result to a specified destination.

Parameters:
destination -
The destination for the results of the query. The class XmlDestination is an abstraction that allows a number of different kinds of destination to be specified.
Throws:
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - Throws a DynamicError if any run-time failure occurs while evaluating the expression.

RunUpdate

public XdmNode[] RunUpdate()
throws
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Execute an updating query.

Returns:
An array containing the root nodes of documents that have been updated by the query.
Throws:
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - Throws a DynamicError if any run-time failure occurs while evaluating the expression, or if the expression is not an updating query.

CallFunction

public XdmValue CallFunction(QName function,
Saxon.Api.XdmValue[] arguments)
throws
System.ArgumentException,
Saxon.Api.DynamicError

Call a global user-defined function in the compiled query.

If this is called more than once (to evaluate the same function repeatedly with different arguments, or to evaluate different functions) then the sequence of evaluations uses the same values of global variables including external variables (query parameters); the effect of any changes made to query parameters between calls is undefined.

Parameters:
function -
The name of the function to be called
arguments -
The values of the arguments to be supplied to the function. These must be of the correct type as defined in the function signature (there is no automatic conversion to the required type).
Throws:
System.ArgumentException - If no function has been defined with the given name and arity or if any of the arguments does not match its required type according to the function signature.
Saxon.Api.DynamicError - If a dynamic error occurs in evaluating the function.
