net.sf.saxon.xpath, these interfaces are not dependent on JAXP 1.3.
This interface defines methods that must be provided when Saxon's free-standing XPath API is used.
An abstract and configurable implementation of the StaticContext interface, which defines the static context of an XPath expression.
This implementation of the XPath static context is mainly used when XPath expressions are hosted in other Saxon processing contexts, for example in xsl:evaluate, or in XSD assertions
An IndependentContext provides a context for parsing an XPath expression appearing in a context other than a stylesheet.
A simple container for standalone XPath expressions
This object represents the dynamic XPath execution context for use in the free-standing Saxon XPath API.
This class provides a native Saxon API for free-standing evaluation of XPath expressions.
This class is a representation of an XPath Expression for use with the
An object representing an XPath variable for use in the standalone XPath API.
This package provides an alternative API for executing XPath expressions
directly from a Java application: unlike the API in package
interfaces are not dependent on JAXP 1.3. The API can be used either in a free-standing
Java application (that is, where there is no XSLT stylesheet), or it can be
used from within Java extension functions called from XPath expressions within
The preferred API for executing XPath expressions in Saxon is the
package. This package is older, and provides a lower-level interface that offers access to more
internal details, but is not so convenient to use.
