A class that expands a character to a character reference, entity reference, etc, and writes the resulting reference to a writer
AttributeSorter: This filter sorts attributes into the order requested using the saxon:attribute-order serialization property
This class generates decodes processing instructions in text output that represent text encoded in base64 binary or hexBinary
CDATAFilter: This ProxyEmitter converts character data to CDATA sections, if the character data belongs to one of a set of element types to be handled this way.
This class defines a character map, that is, a mapping from characters to strings used by the serializer when mapping individual characters in the output.
CharacterMapExpander: This ProxyReceiver expands characters occurring in a character map, as specified by the XSLT 2.0 xsl:character-map declaration
This class represents a set of named character maps.
Emitter: This abstract class defines methods that must be implemented by components that format SAXON output.
A class that represents a character as a hexadecimal character reference and writes the result to a supplied Writer
This class generates HTML 4.0 output
This class generates HTML 5.0 output
This class generates HTML output
HTMLIndenter: This ProxyEmitter indents HTML elements, by adding whitespace character data where appropriate.
A simple class for testing membership of a fixed set of case-insensitive ASCII strings.
This class is used as a filter on the serialization pipeline; it performs the function of escaping URI-valued attributes in HTML
This filter is inserted into the serializer pipeline when serializing an implicit XSLT result tree, that is, one that is created without use of xsl:result-document.
MessageEmitter is the default Receiver for xsl:message output.
MessageWarner is a user-selectable receiver for XSLT xsl:message output.
The MetaTagAdjuster adds a meta element to the content of the head element, indicating the required content type and encoding; it also removes any existing meta element containing this information
This class generates TEXT output
This class is used when the decision on which serialization method to use has to be delayed until the first element is read.
UnicodeNormalizer: This ProxyReceiver performs unicode normalization on the contents of attribute and text nodes.
Specialized buffering UTF-8 writer.
XHTMLEmitter is an Emitter that generates XHTML 1 output.
This class performs URI escaping for the XHTML output method.
This class is used on the serialization pipeline to check that the document conforms to XML 1.0 rules.
XMLEmitter is an Emitter that generates XML output to a specified destination.
XMLIndenter: This ProxyReceiver indents elements, by adding character data where appropriate.
This package contains code for serializing trees using the standard W3C-defined serialization methods
(xml, html, text). Additional Saxon-specific serialization methods are in package
Serialization in Saxon operates as a push-based event pipeline in which the components of the pipeline
This defines a class that accepts a stream of events, with one method
defined for each kind of event. The events are modelled on the design of SAX, but adapted
to the XPath data model and to the use of Saxon's NamePool. Attributes and namespaces are
notified individually after the start of the relevant element.
The pipeline for serialization is assembled by the
on a supplied set of serialization parameters. Only those components needed for the chosen serialization
parameters are included in the pipeline; for example, a Unicode normalizer is inserted at the appropriate
place in the pipeline if Unicode normalization is requested in the serialization parameters.
The immediate output of node constructors in a query or stylesheet goes to a
This is a subclass of
Receiver that can handle an arbitrary sequence, containing atomic values
as well as nodes. When constructing the content of an element, a
ComplexContentOutputter is used;
when constructing the content of a node such as a text node or attribute, a
is used instead.
The final serialization classes are subclasses of
Emitter, but much of the serialization work
(such as indentation or application of character maps) is done by other classes on the pipeline. These
are generally constructed by extending the
The Emitter is an abstract implementation of the Receiver interface. As well as supporting the Receiver interface, it provides methods for controlling the destination of serialized output (a Writer or OutputStream) and for setting serialization properties (in a Properties object). In practice nearly all the implementations of Receiver are currently subclasses of Emitter, but this may change in the future.
The package includes emitters for the standard output methods xml, html, and text, and proxy emitters to allow a sequence of filters to be applied to the output.,
