public class SubsequenceIterator extends java.lang.Object implements SequenceIterator, LastPositionFinder, LookaheadIteratorA SubsequenceIterator selects a subsequence of a sequence
All Methods Static Methods Instance Methods Concrete Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
close()Close the iterator.
getLength()Get the last position (that is, the number of items in the sequence).
getProperties()Get properties of this iterator, as a bit-significant integer.
hasNext()Test whether there are any more items available in the sequence
static <T extends Item>

public static <T extends Item> SequenceIterator make(SequenceIterator base, int min, int max) throws XPathExceptionStatic factory method. Creates a SubsequenceIterator, unless for example the base Iterator is an ArrayIterator, in which case it optimizes by creating a new ArrayIterator directly over the underlying array. This optimization is important when doing recursion over a node-set using repeated calls of
base- An iteration of the items to be filtered
min- The position of the first item to be included (base 1)
max- The position of the last item to be included (base 1)
- an iterator over the requested subsequence
XPathException- if a dynamic error occurs
public boolean hasNext()Test whether there are any more items available in the sequence
public Item next() throws XPathExceptionGet the next item if there is one
- Specified by:
- the next item, or null if there are no more items. Once a call on next() has returned null, no further calls should be made. The preferred action for an iterator if subsequent calls on next() are made is to return null again, and all implementations within Saxon follow this rule.
XPathException- if an error occurs retrieving the next item
public void close()Description copied from interface:
SequenceIteratorClose the iterator. This indicates to the supplier of the data that the client does not require any more items to be delivered by the iterator. This may enable the supplier to release resources. After calling close(), no further calls on the iterator should be made; if further calls are made, the effect of such calls is undefined.
For example, the iterator returned by the unparsed-text-lines() function has a close() method that causes the underlying input stream to be closed, whether or not the file has been read to completion.
Closing an iterator is important when the data is being "pushed" in another thread. Closing the iterator terminates that thread and means that it needs to do no additional work. Indeed, failing to close the iterator may cause the push thread to hang waiting for the buffer to be emptied.
public java.util.EnumSet<SequenceIterator.Property> getProperties()Get properties of this iterator, as a bit-significant integer.
- Specified by:
- the properties of this iterator. This will be some combination of
properties such as
SequenceIterator.Property.LOOKAHEAD. It is always acceptable to return the value zero, indicating that there are no known special properties. It is acceptable for the properties of the iterator to change depending on its state.
public int getLength() throws XPathExceptionGet 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
