        value - the item to iterate over. Must not be null.
    • Method Detail

      • makeIterator

        public static SequenceIterator makeIterator​(Item item)
        Factory method.
        item - the item to iterate over
        a SingletonIterator over the supplied item, or an EmptyIterator if the supplied item is null.
      • supportsHasNext

        public boolean supportsHasNext()
        Description copied from interface: LookaheadIterator
        Ask whether the hasNext() method can be called. This method must be called before calling hasNext(), because some iterators implement this interface, but only support look-ahead under particular circumstances (this is usually because they delegate to another iterator)
        Specified by:
        supportsHasNext in interface LookaheadIterator
        true if the LookaheadIterator.hasNext() method is available
      • hasNext

        public boolean hasNext()
        Determine whether there are more items to come. Note that this operation is stateless and it is not necessary (or usual) to call it before calling next(). It is used only when there is an explicit need to tell if we are at the last element.
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface LookaheadIterator
        true if there are more items
      • next

        public Item next()
        Description copied from interface: SequenceIterator
        Get the next item in the sequence. This method changes the state of the iterator.
        Specified by:
        next in interface SequenceIterator
        the next item, or null if there are no more items. Once a call on next() has returned null, no further calls should be made. The preferred action for an iterator if subsequent calls on next() are made is to return null again, and all implementations within Saxon follow this rule.
      • current

        public Item current()
        Description copied from interface: FocusIterator
        Get the current value in the sequence (the one returned by the most recent call on next()). This will be null before the first call of next(). This method does not change the state of the iterator.
        Specified by:
        current in interface FocusIterator
        the current item, the one most recently returned by a call on next(). Returns null if next() has not been called, or if the end of the sequence has been reached.
      • position

        public int position()
        Description copied from interface: FocusIterator
        Get the current position. This will usually be zero before the first call on next(), otherwise it will be the number of times that next() has been called. Once next() has returned null, the preferred action is for subsequent calls on position() to return -1, but not all existing implementations follow this practice. (In particular, the EmptyIterator is stateless, and always returns 0 as the value of position(), whether or not next() has been called.)

        This method does not change the state of the iterator.

        Specified by:
        position in interface FocusIterator
        the current position, the position of the item returned by the most recent call of next(). This is 1 after next() has been successfully called once, 2 after it has been called twice, and so on. If next() has never been called, the method returns zero. If the end of the sequence has been reached, the value returned will always be <= 0; the preferred value is -1.
      • close

        public void close()
        Description copied from interface: SequenceIterator
        Close the iterator. This indicates to the supplier of the data that the client does not require any more items to be delivered by the iterator. This may enable the supplier to release resources. After calling close(), no further calls on the iterator should be made; if further calls are made, the effect of such calls is undefined.

        For example, the iterator returned by the unparsed-text-lines() function has a close() method that causes the underlying input stream to be closed, whether or not the file has been read to completion.

        Closing an iterator is important when the data is being "pushed" in another thread. Closing the iterator terminates that thread and means that it needs to do no additional work. Indeed, failing to close the iterator may cause the push thread to hang waiting for the buffer to be emptied.

        Closing an iterator is not necessary if the iterator is read to completion: if a call on returns null, the iterator will be closed automatically. An explicit call on SequenceIterator.close() is needed only when iteration is abandoned prematurely.

        It is not possible to guarantee that an iterator that is not read to completion or will be closed. For example, if a lazy-evaluated variable $var is passed to a user-written function, the function may access $var[1] only; we have no way of knowing whether further items will be read. For this reason, any SequenceIterator that holds resources which need to be closed should use the Cleaner mechanism. The Configuration holds a Cleaner, and resources held by a SequenceIterator should be registered with the Cleaner; if the SequenceIterator is then garbage-collected without being closed, the Cleaner will ensure that the underlying resources are closed. (An example of a SequenceIterator that uses this mechanism is the UnparsedTextIterator).

        close in interface java.lang.AutoCloseable
        Specified by:
        close in interface

        close in interface SequenceIterator
      • getReverseIterator

        public SingletonIterator getReverseIterator()
        Description copied from interface: ReversibleIterator
        Get a new SequenceIterator that returns the same items in reverse order. If this SequenceIterator is an AxisIterator, then the returned SequenceIterator must also be an AxisIterator.
        Specified by:
        getReverseIterator in interface ReversibleIterator
        an iterator over the items in reverse order
      • getValue

        public Item getValue()
      • materialize

        public GroundedValue materialize()
        Return a Value containing all the items in the sequence returned by this SequenceIterator
        Specified by:
        materialize in interface GroundedIterator
        the corresponding Value. If the value is a closure or a function call package, it will be evaluated and expanded.
      • getResidue

        public GroundedValue getResidue()
        Description copied from interface: GroundedIterator
        Return a GroundedValue containing all the remaining items in the sequence returned by this SequenceIterator, starting at the current position. This should be an "in-memory" value, not a Closure. This method does not change the state of the iterator (in particular, it does not consume the iterator).
        Specified by:
        getResidue in interface GroundedIterator
        the corresponding Value
