Class Namespace

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.jdom.Namespace

public final class Namespace
extends java.lang.Object

An XML namespace representation, as well as a factory for creating XML namespace objects. Namespaces are not Serializable, however objects that use namespaces have special logic to handle serialization manually. These classes call the getNamespace() method on deserialization to ensure there is one unique Namespace object for any unique prefix/uri pair.

Field Summary
static Namespace NO_NAMESPACE
          Define a Namespace for when not in a namespace
static Namespace XML_NAMESPACE
          Define a Namespace for the standard xml prefix.
 
Method Summary
 boolean equals(java.lang.Object ob)
          This tests for equality - Two Namespaces are equal if and only if their URIs are byte-for-byte equals.
static Namespace getNamespace(java.lang.String uri)
          This will retrieve (if in existence) or create (if not) a Namespace for the supplied URI, and make it usable as a default namespace, as no prefix is supplied.
static Namespace getNamespace(java.lang.String prefix, java.lang.String uri)
          This will retrieve (if in existence) or create (if not) a Namespace for the supplied prefix and URI.
 java.lang.String getPrefix()
          This returns the prefix mapped to this Namespace.
 java.lang.String getURI()
          This returns the namespace URI for this Namespace.
 int hashCode()
          This returns a probably unique hash code for the Namespace.
 java.lang.String toString()
          This returns a String representation of this Namespace, suitable for use in debugging.

Field Detail

NO_NAMESPACE

public static final Namespace NO_NAMESPACE
Define a Namespace for when not in a namespace


XML_NAMESPACE

public static final Namespace XML_NAMESPACE
Define a Namespace for the standard xml prefix.

Method Detail

getNamespace

public static Namespace getNamespace(java.lang.String prefix,
                                     java.lang.String uri)
This will retrieve (if in existence) or create (if not) a Namespace for the supplied prefix and URI.

Parameters:
prefix - String prefix to map to Namespace.
uri - String URI of new Namespace.
Returns:
Namespace - ready to use namespace.
Throws:
IllegalNameException - if the given prefix and uri make up an illegal namespace name.

getNamespace

public static Namespace getNamespace(java.lang.String uri)
This will retrieve (if in existence) or create (if not) a Namespace for the supplied URI, and make it usable as a default namespace, as no prefix is supplied.

Parameters:
uri - String URI of new Namespace.
Returns:
Namespace - ready to use namespace.

getPrefix

public java.lang.String getPrefix()
This returns the prefix mapped to this Namespace.

Returns:
String - prefix for this Namespace.

getURI

public java.lang.String getURI()
This returns the namespace URI for this Namespace.

Returns:
String - URI for this Namespace.

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object ob)
This tests for equality - Two Namespaces are equal if and only if their URIs are byte-for-byte equals.

Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object
Parameters:
ob - Object to compare to this Namespace.
Returns:
boolean - whether the supplied object is equal to this Namespace.

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
This returns a String representation of this Namespace, suitable for use in debugging.

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
String - information about this instance.

hashCode

public int hashCode()
This returns a probably unique hash code for the Namespace. If two namespaces have the same URI, they are equal and have the same hash code, even if they have different prefixes.

Overrides:
hashCode in class java.lang.Object
Returns:
int - hash code for this Namespace.
