Class VirtualCopy.VirtualCopier

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, java.lang.AutoCloseable, SequenceIterator, AxisIterator, UnfailingIterator
    Enclosing class:

    protected class VirtualCopy.VirtualCopier
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements AxisIterator
    VirtualCopier implements the XPath axes as applied to a VirtualCopy node. It works by applying the requested axis to the node of which this is a copy. There are two complications: firstly, all nodes encountered must themselves be (virtually) copied to give them a new identity. Secondly, axes that stray outside the subtree rooted at the original copied node must be truncated.

        Description copied from interface: SequenceIterator
        Close 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.
