Detailed Description

Interface for an XML filter.

This module, both source code and documentation, is in the Public Domain, and comes with NO WARRANTY. See http://www.saxproject.org for further information.

An XML filter is like an XML reader, except that it obtains its events from another XML reader rather than a primary source like an XML document or database. Filters can modify a stream of events as they pass on to the final application.

The XMLFilterImpl helper class provides a convenient base for creating SAX2 filters, by passing on all EntityResolver, DTDHandler, ContentHandler and ErrorHandler events automatically.

Member Function Documentation

virtual RXMLReader org::xml::sax::XMLFilter::getParent  )  [pure virtual]

Get the parent reader.

This method allows the application to query the parent reader (which may be another filter). It is generally a bad idea to perform any operations on the parent reader directly: they should all pass through this filter.

The parent filter, or null if none has been set.

Implemented in org::xml::sax::helpers::XMLFilterImpl.

virtual void org::xml::sax::XMLFilter::setParent IN(RXMLReader parent  )  [pure virtual]

Set the parent reader.

This method allows the application to link the filter to a parent reader (which may be another filter). The argument may not be null.

parent The parent reader.

Implemented in org::xml::sax::helpers::XMLFilterImpl.
