Interface SourceResolver

All Known Implementing Classes:
Configuration, EnterpriseConfiguration, ProfessionalConfiguration

public interface SourceResolver

This interface defines a SourceResolver. A SourceResolver can be registered as part of the Configuration, and enables new kinds of Source to be recognized beyond those that are natively recognized by Saxon.

The task of the SourceResolver is to take any Source as input, and to return a Source that has native support in Saxon: that is, one of the classes StreamSource, SAXSource, DOMSource, NodeInfo, or PullSource

Method Detail


Source resolveSource(Source source,
                     Configuration config)
                     throws XPathException
Resolve a Source.

source - A source object, typically the source supplied as the first argument to Transformer.transform(javax.xml.transform.Source, javax.xml.transform.Result) or similar methods.
config - The Configuration. This provides the SourceResolver with access to configuration information; it also allows the SourceResolver to invoke the resolveSource() method on the Configuration object as a fallback implementation.
a source object that Saxon knows how to process. This must be an instance of one of the classes StreamSource, SAXSource, DOMSource, AugmentedSource, NodeInfo, or PullSource. Return null if the Source object is not recognized
XPathException - if the Source object is recognized but cannot be processed
