Class UnboundFunctionLibrary

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class UnboundFunctionLibrary
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements FunctionLibrary
    An UnboundFunctionLibrary is not a real function library; rather, it is used to keep track of function calls that cannot yet be bound to a known declared function, but will have to be bound when all user-declared functions are available.

      • bind

        public Expression bind​(SymbolicName.F functionName,
                               Expression[] arguments,
                               java.util.Map<StructuredQName,​java.lang.Integer> keywords,
                               StaticContext env,
                               java.util.List<java.lang.String> reasons)
        Identify a (namespace-prefixed) function appearing in the expression. This method is called by the XQuery parser to resolve function calls found within the query.

        Note that a function call may appear earlier in the query than the definition of the function to which it is bound. Unlike XSLT, we cannot search forwards to find the function definition. Binding of function calls is therefore a two-stage process; at the time the function call is parsed, we simply register it as pending; subsequently at the end of query parsing all the pending function calls are resolved. Another consequence of this is that we cannot tell at the time a function call is parsed whether it is a call to an internal (XSLT or XQuery) function or to an extension function written in Java.

        Specified by:
        bind in interface FunctionLibrary
        functionName - the QName of the function being called
        arguments - Contains the expressions supplied statically in arguments to the function call. The intention is that the static type of the arguments (obtainable via getItemType() and getCardinality()) may be used as part of the binding algorithm. In some cases it may be possible for the function to be pre-evaluated at compile time, for example if these expressions are all constant values.

        The conventions of the XPath language demand that the results of a function depend only on the values of the expressions supplied as arguments, and not on the form of those expressions. For example, the result of f(4) is expected to be the same as f(2+2). The actual expression is supplied here to enable the binding mechanism to select the most efficient possible implementation (including compile-time pre-evaluation where appropriate).

        keywords - May be null if no keywords are used in the function call. Otherwise, a map identifying the keywords appearing in the function call, and the 0-based position at which they appeared.
        env - The static context of the function call
        reasons - If no matching function is found by the function library, it may add a diagnostic explanation to this list explaining why none of the available functions could be used.
        an Expression representing the function call. This will normally be a FunctionCall, but it may be rewritten as some other expression.
      • getFunctionItem

        public FunctionItem getFunctionItem​(SymbolicName.F functionName,
                                            StaticContext staticContext)
        Test whether a function with a given name and arity is available; if so, return a function item that can be dynamically called.

        This supports the function-lookup() function in XPath 3.0.

        Specified by:
        getFunctionItem in interface FunctionLibrary
        functionName - the qualified name of the function being called
        staticContext - the static context to be used by the function, in the event that it is a system function with dependencies on the static context
        if a function of this name and arity is available for calling, then a corresponding function item; or null if the function does not exist
      • isAvailable

        public boolean isAvailable​(SymbolicName.F functionName,
                                   int languageLevel)
        Test whether a function with a given name and arity is available

        This supports the function-available() function in XSLT.

        Specified by:
        isAvailable in interface FunctionLibrary
        functionName - the qualified name of the function being called
        languageLevel - the XPath language level times 10 (31 = XPath 3.1)
        true if a function of this name and arity is available for calling
      • bindUnboundFunctionReferences

        public void bindUnboundFunctionReferences​(XQueryFunctionBinder lib,
                                                  Configuration config)
                                           throws XPathException
        Bind function calls that could not be bound when first encountered. These will either be forwards references to functions declared later in the query, or errors. This method is for internal use.
        lib - A library containing all the XQuery functions that have been declared; the method searches this library for this missing function call
        config - The Saxon configuration
        XPathException - if a function call refers to a function that has not been declared
      • copy

        public FunctionLibrary copy()
        This method creates a copy of a FunctionLibrary: if the original FunctionLibrary allows new functions to be added, then additions to this copy will not affect the original, or vice versa.
        Specified by:
        copy in interface FunctionLibrary
        a copy of this function library. This must be an instance of the original class.
