    • Method Detail

      • setTypeLabel

        public void setTypeLabel​(AtomicType type)
        Set the type label on this atomic value. Note that this modifies the value, so it must only called if the caller is confident that the value is not shared. In other cases, use copyAsSubType(net.sf.saxon.type.AtomicType)
        type - the type label to be set
      • getSchemaComparable

        public abstract java.lang.Comparable getSchemaComparable()
        Get a Comparable value that implements the XML Schema ordering comparison semantics for this value. An implementation must be provided for all atomic types.

        In the case of data types that are partially ordered, the returned Comparable extends the standard semantics of the compareTo() method by returning the value SequenceTool.INDETERMINATE_ORDERING when there is no defined order relationship between two given values. This value is also returned when two values of different types are compared.

        Specified by:
        getSchemaComparable in interface AtomicSequence
        a Comparable that follows XML Schema comparison rules
      • getXPathComparable

        public abstract AtomicMatchKey getXPathComparable​(boolean ordered,
                                                          StringCollator collator,
                                                          int implicitTimezone)
                                                   throws NoDynamicContextException
        Get an object value that implements the XPath equality and ordering comparison semantics for this value. If the ordered parameter is set to true, the result will be a Comparable and will support a compareTo() method with the semantics of the XPath lt/gt operator, provided that the other operand is also obtained using the getXPathComparable() method. In all cases the result will support equals() and hashCode() methods that support the semantics of the XPath eq operator, again provided that the other operand is also obtained using the getXPathComparable() method. A collation is supplied for comparing strings, and an implicit timezone for comparing date/time values that have no saved timezone.
        ordered - true if an ordered comparison is required. In this case the result is null if the type is unordered; in other cases the returned value will be a Comparable.
        collator - the collation to be used when comparing strings
        implicitTimezone - the implicit timezone in the dynamic context, used when comparing dates/times with and without timezone
        an Object whose equals() and hashCode() methods implement the XPath comparison semantics with respect to this atomic value. If ordered is specified, the result will either be null if no ordering is defined, or will be a Comparable
        NoDynamicContextException - if the supplied implicit timezone is "NO_TIMEZONE" (meaning unknown), and the implicit timezone is actually required because the value in question is a date/time value with no timezone. This can cause a failure to evaluate expressions statically (because the implicit timezone is not known statically), and it will then be caught, meaning that the expression has to be evaluated dynamically.
      • asMapKey

        public AtomicMatchKey asMapKey()
        Get a value whose equals() method follows the "same key" rules for comparing the keys of a map.
        a value with the property that the equals() and hashCode() methods follow the rules for comparing keys in maps.
      • equals

        public abstract boolean equals​(java.lang.Object o)
        The equals() methods on atomic values is defined to follow the semantics of eq when applied to two atomic values. When the other operand is not an atomic value, the result is undefined (may be false, may be an exception). When the other operand is an atomic value that cannot be compared with this one, the method must throw a ClassCastException.

        The hashCode() method is consistent with equals().

        equals in class java.lang.Object
        o - the other value
        true if the other operand is an atomic value and the two values are equal as defined by the XPath eq operator
      • isIdentical

        public boolean isIdentical​(AtomicValue v)
        Determine whether two atomic values are identical, as determined by XML Schema rules. This is a stronger test than equality (even schema-equality); for example two dateTime values are not identical unless they are in the same timezone.

        Note that even this check ignores the type annotation of the value. The integer 3 and the short 3 are considered identical, even though they are not fully interchangeable. "Identical" means the same point in the value space, regardless of type annotation.

        NaN is identical to itself.

        v - the other value to be compared with this one
        true if the two values are identical, false otherwise.
      • isIdentical

        public boolean isIdentical​(IdentityComparable other)
        Determine whether two IdentityComparable objects are identical. This is a stronger test than equality (even schema-equality); for example two dateTime values are not identical unless they are in the same timezone.
        Specified by:
        isIdentical in interface IdentityComparable
        other - the value to be compared
        true if the two values are identical, false otherwise
      • identityHashCode

        public int identityHashCode()
        Get a hashCode that offers the guarantee that if A.isIdentical(B), then A.identityHashCode() == B.identityHashCode()
        Specified by:
        identityHashCode in interface IdentityComparable
        a hashCode suitable for use when testing for identity.
      • getCanonicalLexicalRepresentation

        public java.lang.CharSequence getCanonicalLexicalRepresentation()
        Get the canonical lexical representation as defined in XML Schema. This is not always the same as the result of casting to a string according to the XPath rules.
        Specified by:
        getCanonicalLexicalRepresentation in interface AtomicSequence
        the canonical lexical representation if defined in XML Schema; otherwise, the result of casting to string according to the XPath 2.0 rules
      • itemAt

        public final AtomicValue itemAt​(int n)
        Get the n'th item in the sequence (starting from 0). This is defined for all Values, but its real benefits come for a sequence Value stored extensionally (or for a MemoClosure, once all the values have been read)
        Specified by:
        itemAt in interface AtomicSequence
        Specified by:
        itemAt in interface GroundedValue

        itemAt in interface Item
        n - position of the required item, counting from zero.
        the n'th item in the sequence, where the first item in the sequence is numbered zero. If n is negative or >= the length of the sequence, returns null.

        the type annotation of the atomic value
      • getPrimitiveType

        public abstract BuiltInAtomicType getPrimitiveType()
        Determine the primitive type of the value. This delivers the same answer as getItemType().getPrimitiveItemType(). The primitive types are the 19 primitive types of XML Schema, plus xs:integer, xs:dayTimeDuration and xs:yearMonthDuration, and xs:untypedAtomic. For external objects, the result is xs:anyAtomicType.
        the primitive type
      • getUType

        public final UType getUType()
        Determine the UType of the value. This delivers the same answer as getItemType().getUType()

      • getStringValue

        public final java.lang.String getStringValue()
        Convert the value to a string, using the serialization rules. For atomic values this is the same as a cast; for sequence values it gives a space-separated list. This method is refined for AtomicValues so that it never throws an Exception.
