TransformerHandler interface allows a transformation to be created from SAX2 parse events, which is a "push" model rather than the "pull" model that normally occurs for a transformation. Normal parse events are received through the
ContentHandler interface, lexical events such as startCDATA and endCDATA are received through the
LexicalHandler interface, and events that signal the start or end of disabling output escaping are received via
ContentHandler.processingInstruction(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) , with the target parameter being
Result.PI_ENABLE_OUTPUT_ESCAPING. If parameters, output properties, or other features need to be set on the Transformer handler, a
Transformer reference will need to be obtained from
TransformerHandler.getTransformer(), and the methods invoked from that reference.
TemplatesHandler interface allows the creation of
Templates objects from SAX2 parse events. Once the
ContentHandler events are complete, the Templates object may be obtained from
TemplatesHandler.getTemplates(). Note that
TemplatesHandler.setSystemId(java.lang.String) should normally be called in order to establish a base system ID from which relative URLs may be resolved.
SAXTransformerFactory.newXMLFilter(javax.xml.transform.Source) method allows the creation of a
XMLFilter, which encapsulates the SAX2 notion of a "pull" transformation. The resulting
XMLFilters can be chained together so that a series of transformations can happen with one's output becoming another's input.
Interface Summary Interface Description TemplatesHandlerA SAX ContentHandler that may be used to process SAX parse events (parsing transformation instructions) into a Templates object. TransformerHandlerA TransformerHandler listens for SAX ContentHandler parse events and transforms them to a Result.
Class Summary Class Description SAXResultActs as an holder for a transformation Result. SAXSourceActs as an holder for SAX-style Source. SAXTransformerFactoryThis class extends TransformerFactory to provide SAX-specific factory methods.
