This package implements DOM-specific transformation APIs.
DOMSource class allows the client of the implementation of this API to specify a DOM
Node as the source of the input tree. The model of how the Transformer deals with the DOM tree in terms of mismatches with the XSLT data model or other data models is beyond the scope of this document. Any of the nodes derived from
Node are legal input.
DOMResult class allows a
Node to be specified to which result DOM nodes will be appended. If an output node is not specified, the transformer will use
newDocument() to create an output
Document node. If a node is specified, it should be one of the following:
DocumentFragment. Specification of any other node type is implementation dependent and undefined by this API. If the result is a
Document, the output of the transformation must have a single element root to set as the document element.
DOMLocator node may be passed to
TransformerException objects, and retrieved by trying to cast the result of the
getLocator() method. The implementation has no responsibility to use a DOMLocator instead of a
SourceLocator (though line numbers and the like do not make much sense for a DOM), so the result of getLocator must always be tested with an instanceof.
|DOMLocator||Indicates the position of a node in a source DOM, intended primarily for error reporting.|
