Class Overview

This class extends TransformerFactory to provide SAX-specific factory methods. It provides two types of ContentHandlers, one for creating Transformers, the other for creating Templates objects.

If an application wants to set the ErrorHandler or EntityResolver for an XMLReader used during a transformation, it should use a URIResolver to return the SAXSource which provides (with getXMLReader) a reference to the XMLReader.

Summary

Constants
String FEATURE If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the TransformerFactory returned from newInstance() may be safely cast to a SAXTransformerFactory.
String FEATURE_XMLFILTER If getFeature(String) returns true when passed this value as an argument, the newXMLFilter(Source) and newXMLFilter(Templates) methods are supported.
Protected Constructors
SAXTransformerFactory()
The default constructor is protected on purpose.
Public Methods
abstract TemplatesHandler newTemplatesHandler()
Get a TemplatesHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Templates object.
abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler()
Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result.
abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler(Source src)
Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result, based on the transformation instructions specified by the argument.
abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler(Templates templates)
Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result, based on the Templates argument.
abstract XMLFilter newXMLFilter(Source src)
Create an XMLFilter that uses the given Source as the transformation instructions.
abstract XMLFilter newXMLFilter(Templates templates)
Create an XMLFilter, based on the Templates argument..

Public Methods

public abstract TemplatesHandler newTemplatesHandler ()

Get a TemplatesHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Templates object.

Returns
  • A non-null reference to a TransformerHandler, that may be used as a ContentHandler for SAX parse events.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TemplatesHandler cannot be created.

public abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler ()

Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result. The transformation is defined as an identity (or copy) transformation, for example to copy a series of SAX parse events into a DOM tree.

Returns
  • A non-null reference to a TransformerHandler, that may be used as a ContentHandler for SAX parse events.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TransformerHandler cannot be created.

public abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler (Source src)

Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result, based on the transformation instructions specified by the argument.

Parameters
src The Source of the transformation instructions.
Returns
  • TransformerHandler ready to transform SAX events.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TransformerHandler can not be created.

public abstract TransformerHandler newTransformerHandler (Templates templates)

Get a TransformerHandler object that can process SAX ContentHandler events into a Result, based on the Templates argument.

Parameters
templates The compiled transformation instructions.
Returns
  • TransformerHandler ready to transform SAX events.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TransformerHandler can not be created.

public abstract XMLFilter newXMLFilter (Source src)

Create an XMLFilter that uses the given Source as the transformation instructions.

Parameters
src The Source of the transformation instructions.
Returns
  • An XMLFilter object, or null if this feature is not supported.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TemplatesHandler cannot be created.

public abstract XMLFilter newXMLFilter (Templates templates)

Create an XMLFilter, based on the Templates argument..

Parameters
templates The compiled transformation instructions.
Returns
  • An XMLFilter object, or null if this feature is not supported.
Throws
TransformerConfigurationException If for some reason the TemplatesHandler cannot be created.
