Class XMLParserActivator

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.osgi.util.xml.XMLParserActivator
All Implemented Interfaces:
BundleActivator, ServiceFactory

public class XMLParserActivator
extends java.lang.Object
implements BundleActivator, ServiceFactory

A BundleActivator class that allows any JAXP compliant XML Parser to register itself as an OSGi parser service. Multiple JAXP compliant parsers can concurrently register by using this BundleActivator class. Bundles who wish to use an XML parser can then use the framework's service registry to locate available XML Parsers with the desired characteristics such as validating and namespace-aware.

The services that this bundle activator enables a bundle to provide are:

The algorithm to find the implementations of the abstract parsers is derived from the JAR file specifications, specifically the Services API.

An XMLParserActivator assumes that it can find the class file names of the factory classes in the following files:

If either of the files does not exist, XMLParserActivator assumes that the parser does not support that parser type.

XMLParserActivator attempts to instantiate both the SAXParserFactory and the DocumentBuilderFactory. It registers each factory with the framework along with service properties:

Individual parser implementations may have additional features, properties, or attributes which could be used to select a parser with a filter. These can be added by extending this class and overriding the setSAXProperties and setDOMProperties methods.

XMLParserActivator

public XMLParserActivator()
Method Detail

start

public void start(BundleContext context)
           throws java.lang.Exception
Called when this bundle is started so the Framework can perform the bundle-specific activities necessary to start this bundle. This method can be used to register services or to allocate any resources that this bundle needs.

This method must complete and return to its caller in a timely manner.

This method attempts to register a SAX and DOM parser with the Framework's service registry.

Specified by:
start in interface BundleActivator
Parameters:
context - The execution context of the bundle being started.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - If this method throws an exception, this bundle is marked as stopped and the Framework will remove this bundle's listeners, unregister all services registered by this bundle, and release all services used by this bundle.

stop

public void stop(BundleContext context)
          throws java.lang.Exception
This method has nothing to do as all active service registrations will automatically get unregistered when the bundle stops.

Specified by:
stop in interface BundleActivator
Parameters:
context - The execution context of the bundle being stopped.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - If this method throws an exception, the bundle is still marked as stopped, and the Framework will remove the bundle's listeners, unregister all services registered by the bundle, and release all services used by the bundle.

setSAXProperties

public void setSAXProperties(javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory factory,
                             java.util.Hashtable properties)

Set the customizable SAX Parser Service Properties.

This method attempts to instantiate a validating parser and a namespace aware parser to determine if the parser can support those features. The appropriate properties are then set in the specified properties object.

This method can be overridden to add additional SAX2 features and properties. If you want to be able to filter searches of the OSGi service registry, this method must put a key, value pair into the properties object for each feature or property. For example, properties.put("http://www.acme.com/features/foo", Boolean.TRUE);

Parameters:
factory - - the SAXParserFactory object
properties - - the properties object for the service

setDOMProperties

public void setDOMProperties(javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory factory,
                             java.util.Hashtable props)

Set the customizable DOM Parser Service Properties.

This method attempts to instantiate a validating parser and a namespace aware parser to determine if the parser can support those features. The appropriate properties are then set in the specified props object.

This method can be overridden to add additional DOM2 features and properties. If you want to be able to filter searches of the OSGi service registry, this method must put a key, value pair into the properties object for each feature or property. For example, properties.put("http://www.acme.com/features/foo", Boolean.TRUE);

Parameters:
factory - - the DocumentBuilderFactory object
props - - Hashtable of service properties.

getService

public java.lang.Object getService(Bundle bundle,
                                   ServiceRegistration registration)
Creates a new XML Parser Factory object.

A unique XML Parser Factory object is returned for each call to this method.

The returned XML Parser Factory object will be configured for validating and namespace aware support as specified in the service properties of the specified ServiceRegistration object. This method can be overridden to configure additional features in the returned XML Parser Factory object.

Specified by:
getService in interface ServiceFactory
Parameters:
bundle - The bundle using the service.
registration - The ServiceRegistration object for the service.
Returns:
A new, configured XML Parser Factory object or null if a configuration error was encountered

BundleContext.getService(ServiceReference)

ungetService

public void ungetService(Bundle bundle,
                         ServiceRegistration registration,
                         java.lang.Object service)
Releases a XML Parser Factory object.

Specified by:
ungetService in interface ServiceFactory
Parameters:
bundle - The bundle releasing the service.
registration - The ServiceRegistration object for the service.
service - The XML Parser Factory object returned by a previous call to the getService method.
