Shared base class for streaming processing contexts used during
reading and writing of Json content using Streaming API.
This context is also exposed to applications:
context object can be used by applications to get an idea of
relative position of the parser/generator within json content
being processed. This allows for some contextual processing: for
example, output within Array context can differ from that of
Index of the currently processed entry. Starts with -1 to signal
that no entries have been started, and gets advanced each
time a new entry is started, either by encountering an expected
separator, or with new values if no separators are expected
(the case for root context).
Accessor for finding parent context of this context; will
return null for root context.
Method that returns true if this context is an Array context;
that is, content is being read from or written to a Json Array.
Method that returns true if this context is a Root context;
that is, content is being read from or written to without
enclosing array or object structure.
Method that returns true if this context is an Object context;
that is, content is being read from or written to a Json Object.
Method for accessing simple type description of current context;
either ROOT (for root-level values), OBJECT (for field names and
values of JSON Objects) or ARRAY (for values of JSON Arrays)
- Number of entries that are complete and started.
- Index of the currently processed entry, if any
Method for accessing name associated with the current location.
and value events that directly
follow field names; null for root level and array values.
