public interface LastPositionFinder

A LastPositionFinder is an interface implemented by any SequenceIterator that is able to return the position of the last item in the sequence.

Method Summary
 int getLastPosition()
          Get the last position (that is, the number of items in the sequence).

Method Detail


int getLastPosition()
                    throws XPathException
Get the last position (that is, the number of items in the sequence). This method is non-destructive: it does not change the state of the iterator. The result is undefined if the next() method of the iterator has already returned null. This method must not be called unless the result of getProperties() on the iterator includes the bit setting SequenceIterator.LAST_POSITION_FINDER
