This package contains classes used to support the use of the ICU library for collating strings, in particular, for the implementation of the Unicode Collation Algorithm.
Saxon-HE contains a rudimentary implementation of the Unicode Collation Algorithm to the extent that this is possible using standard capabilities of the Java platform. Saxon-PE/EE augments this with much richer capabilities achieved by use of the ICU library.
None of these classes will be used directly by typical user applications.
Class Summary Class Description UcaCollationKeyUsingIcuThis class is an implementation of Saxon collation keys based on the functionality of collation keys supplied by the ICU library. UcaCollatorUsingIcuThis class represents a collation (for comparing strings) implemented using the ICU library.
