    • Field Detail

      • NONE

        public static final WhitespaceStrippingPolicy NONE
        The value NONE indicates that all whitespace text nodes are retained. This is the default when documents are processed without validation.

        public static final WhitespaceStrippingPolicy IGNORABLE
        The value IGNORABLE indicates that whitespace text nodes in element-only content are discarded. Content is element-only if it is defined by a schema or DTD definition that does not allow mixed or PCDATA content. This option is in effect documentary only, since this policy is always used when DTD or schema validation is selected for a DocumentBuilder, and is equivalent to NONE otherwise.
      • ALL

        public static final WhitespaceStrippingPolicy ALL
        The value ALL indicates that all whitespace-only text nodes are discarded.

        public static final WhitespaceStrippingPolicy UNSPECIFIED
        UNSPECIFIED means that no other value has been specifically requested.

        protected WhitespaceStrippingPolicy​(StylesheetPackage pack)
        Create a WhitespaceStrippingPolicy based on the xsl:strip-space and xsl:preserve-space declarations in a given XSLT stylesheet package

    • Method Detail

      • makeCustomPolicy

        public static WhitespaceStrippingPolicy makeCustomPolicy​(java.util.function.Predicate<QName> elementTest)
        Create a custom whitespace stripping policy, by supplying a predicate that indicates for any given element, whether whitespace text nodes among its children should be stripped or preserved. Note that xml:space attributes that might be present have no effect on the outcome, and the decision applies only to immediate children, not to descendants.

        Changed in 9.9 to use the standard Java 8 Predicate class in place of Saxon's version.

        elementTest - a predicate applied to element names, which should return true if whitespace-only text node children of the element are to be stripped, false if they are to be retained.
