Class SimpleTypeIdentityComparison

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class SimpleTypeIdentityComparison
    extends SimpleTypeComparison
    This class implements equality and identity comparisons between values of simple types: that is, atomic values, and sequences of atomic values, following the XSD-defined rules for equality and identity comparisons. These are not always the same as the XPath-defined rules. In particular, under XSD rules values are generally only comparable with others of the same primitive type: a double and a float, for example, never compare equal.

    In practice, identity comparison delivers the same result as equality comparison in all cases except NaN: NaN is identical to itself but not equal to itself.

    This class is a singleton that cannot be externally instantiated.
