    • Constructor Detail

        target - expression denoting the nodes to be deleted
    • Method Detail

      • operands

        public java.lang.Iterable<Operand> operands()
        Description copied from class: Expression
        Get the immediate sub-expressions of this expression, with information about the relationship of each expression to its parent expression. Default implementation works off the results of iterateSubExpressions()

        If the expression is a Callable, then it is required that the order of the operands returned by this function is the same as the order of arguments supplied to the corresponding call() method.

        operands in class Expression
        an iterator containing the sub-expressions of this expression
      • setTargetExp

        public void setTargetExp​(Expression targetExp)
      • typeCheck

        public Expression typeCheck​(ExpressionVisitor visitor,
                                    ContextItemStaticInfo contextInfo)
                             throws XPathException
        Perform type checking of an expression and its subexpressions. This is the second phase of static optimization.

        This checks statically that the operands of the expression have the correct type; if necessary it generates code to do run-time type checking or type conversion. A static type error is reported only if execution cannot possibly succeed, that is, if a run-time type error is inevitable. The call may return a modified form of the expression.

        This method is called after all references to functions and variables have been resolved to the declaration of the function or variable. However, the types of such functions and variables may not be accurately known if they have not been explicitly declared.

        If the implementation returns a value other than "this", then it is required to ensure that the parent pointer and location information in the returned expression have been set up correctly. It should not rely on the caller to do this, although for historical reasons many callers do so.

        typeCheck in class Expression
        visitor - an expression visitor
        contextInfo - information about the dynamic context item
        the original expression, rewritten to perform necessary run-time type checks, and to perform other type-related optimizations
        XPathException - if an error is discovered during this phase (typically a type error)
      • copy

        public Expression copy​(RebindingMap rebindings)
        Copy an expression. This makes a deep copy.
        Specified by:
        copy in class Expression
        rebindings - variables that need to be re-bound
        the copy of the original expression
      • export

        public void export​(ExpressionPresenter out)
                    throws XPathException
        Diagnostic print of expression structure. The abstract expression tree is written to the supplied output destination.
        Specified by:
        export in interface ExportAgent
        Specified by:
        export in class Expression
        out - the expression presenter used to display the structure
        XPathException - if the export fails, for example if an expression is found that won't work in the target environment.
      • evaluatePendingUpdates

        public void evaluatePendingUpdates​(XPathContext context,
                                           PendingUpdateList pul)
                                    throws XPathException
        Evaluate an updating expression, adding the results to a Pending Update List. The default implementation of this method, which is used for non-updating expressions, throws an UnsupportedOperationException
        evaluatePendingUpdates in class Expression
        context - the XPath dynamic evaluation context
        pul - the pending update list to which the results should be written
        XPathException - if evaluation fails
      • getExpressionName

        public java.lang.String getExpressionName()
        Get a name identifying the kind of expression, in terms meaningful to a user.
        getExpressionName in class Expression
        a name identifying the kind of expression, in terms meaningful to a user. The name will always be in the form of a lexical XML QName, and should match the name used in export() output displaying the expression.
