Package Summary  Overview Summary

class:IIOMetadataNode [NONE]

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Element, Node, NodeList


    public class IIOMetadataNode
    extends Object
    implements Element, NodeList
    
    A class representing a node in a meta-data tree, which implements the org.w3c.dom.Element interface and additionally allows for the storage of non-textual objects via the getUserObject and setUserObject methods.

    This class is not intended to be used for general XML processing. In particular, Element nodes created within the Image I/O API are not compatible with those created by Sun's standard implementation of the org.w3.dom API. In particular, the implementation is tuned for simple uses and may not perform well for intensive processing.

    Namespaces are ignored in this implementation. The terms "tag name" and "node name" are always considered to be synonymous. Note: The DOM Level 3 specification added a number of new methods to the Node, Element and Attr interfaces that are not of value to the IIOMetadataNode implementation or specification. Calling such methods on an IIOMetadataNode, or an Attr instance returned from an IIOMetadataNode will result in a DOMException being thrown.

  • setAttribute

    public void setAttribute​(String name,
                             String value)
    Description copied from interface: Element
    Adds a new attribute. If an attribute with that name is already present in the element, its value is changed to be that of the value parameter. This value is a simple string; it is not parsed as it is being set. So any markup (such as syntax to be recognized as an entity reference) is treated as literal text, and needs to be appropriately escaped by the implementation when it is written out. In order to assign an attribute value that contains entity references, the user must create an Attr node plus any Text and EntityReference nodes, build the appropriate subtree, and use setAttributeNode to assign it as the value of an attribute.
    To set an attribute with a qualified name and namespace URI, use the setAttributeNS method.
    Specified by:
    setAttribute in interface Element
    Parameters:
    name - The name of the attribute to create or alter.
    value - Value to set in string form.

method:setAttributeNS(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String) [NONE]

  • setAttributeNS

    public void setAttributeNS​(String namespaceURI,

                               String value)
    Equivalent to setAttribute(qualifiedName, value) .
    Specified by:
    setAttributeNS in interface Element
    Parameters:
    namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the attribute to create or alter.
    qualifiedName - The qualified name of the attribute to create or alter.
    value - The value to set in string form.
    See Also:
    getAttributeNS(java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

method:removeAttribute(java.lang.String) [NONE]

  • removeAttribute

    public void removeAttribute​(String name)
    Description copied from interface: Element
    Removes an attribute by name. If a default value for the removed attribute is defined in the DTD, a new attribute immediately appears with the default value as well as the corresponding namespace URI, local name, and prefix when applicable. The implementation may handle default values from other schemas similarly but applications should use Document.normalizeDocument() to guarantee this information is up-to-date.
    If no attribute with this name is found, this method has no effect.
    To remove an attribute by local name and namespace URI, use the removeAttributeNS method.
    Specified by:
    removeAttribute in interface Element
    Parameters:
    name - The name of the attribute to remove.

    Equivalent to removeAttribute(localName).
    Specified by:
    removeAttributeNS in interface Element
    Parameters:
    namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the attribute to remove.

  • getAttributeNodeNS

    public Attr getAttributeNodeNS​(String namespaceURI,
                                   String localName)

    Parameters:
    namespaceURI - The namespace URI of the attribute to retrieve.

                          throws DOMException
    
    Description copied from interface: Element
    Adds a new attribute node. If an attribute with that name ( nodeName) is already present in the element, it is replaced by the new one. Replacing an attribute node by itself has no effect.
    To add a new attribute node with a qualified name and namespace URI, use the setAttributeNodeNS method.
    Specified by:
    setAttributeNode in interface Element
    Parameters:
    newAttr - The Attr node to add to the attribute list.
    Returns:
    If the newAttr attribute replaces an existing attribute, the replaced Attr node is returned, otherwise null is returned.
    Throws:
    DOMException - WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: Raised if newAttr was created from a different document than the one that created the element.
    NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR: Raised if this node is readonly.
    INUSE_ATTRIBUTE_ERR: Raised if newAttr is already an attribute of another Element object. The DOM user must explicitly clone Attr nodes to re-use them in other elements.
