Class SAXDestination

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class SAXDestination
    extends AbstractDestination
    This class represents a Destination (for example, the destination of the output of a transformation) in which events representing the XML document are sent to a user-supplied SAX2 ContentHandler, as if the ContentHandler were receiving the document directly from an XML parser.

    If the supplied ContentHandler implements the LexicalHandler interface, then comment nodes will be notified to the handler; if not, comments will be silently ignored.

    Namespace-related information is reported to the ContentHandler following the conventions of an XMLReader configured with default values for the features and

    If and only if the supplied ContentHandler implements the TransformerHandler interface, then unparsed entities may be notified to the DTDHandler.unparsedEntityDecl(String, String, String, String) method.

        public SAXDestination​(org.xml.sax.ContentHandler handler)
        Create a SAXDestination, supplying a SAX ContentHandler to which events will be routed

      • getReceiver

        public Receiver getReceiver​(PipelineConfiguration pipe,
                                    SerializationProperties params)
        Return a Receiver. Saxon calls this method to obtain a Receiver, to which it then sends a sequence of events representing the content of an XML document.
        pipe - The Saxon configuration. This is supplied so that the destination can use information from the configuration (for example, a reference to the name pool) to construct or configure the returned Receiver.
        params - Seriaization properties. Since this destination is not a serializing destination. the main property of interest is item-separator.
        the Receiver to which events are to be sent.
      • close

        public void close()
        Close the destination, allowing resources to be released. Saxon calls this method when it has finished writing to the destination.
