 package org.apache.jasper.xmlparser;

This class is used as a structure to pass text contained in the underlying character buffer of the scanner. The offset and length fields allow the buffer to be re-used without creating new character arrays.

Note: Methods that are passed an XMLString structure should consider the contents read-only and not make any modifications to the contents of the buffer. The method receiving this structure should also not modify the offset and length if this structure (or the values of this structure) are passed to another method.

Note: Methods that are passed an XMLString structure are required to copy the information out of the buffer if it is to be saved for use beyond the scope of the method. The contents of the structure are volatile and the contents of the character buffer cannot be assured once the method that is passed this structure returns. Therefore, methods passed this structure should not save any reference to the structure or the character array contained in the structure.

 public class XMLString {
 
     //
     // Data
     //
 
    
The character array.
 
     public char[] ch;

    
The offset into the character array.
 
     public int offset;

    
The length of characters from the offset.
 
     public int length;
 
     //
     // Constructors
     //
 
    
Default constructor.
 
     public XMLString() {
     } // <init>()
 
    
Constructs an XMLString structure preset with the specified values.

Parameters:
ch The character array.
offset The offset into the character array.
length The length of characters from the offset.
 
     public XMLString(char[] chint offsetint length) {
         setValues(choffsetlength);
     } // <init>(char[],int,int)
 
    
Constructs an XMLString structure with copies of the values in the given structure.

Note: This does not copy the character array; only the reference to the array is copied.

Parameters:
string The XMLString to copy.
 
     public XMLString(XMLString string) {
         setValues(string);
     } // <init>(XMLString)
 
    //
    // Public methods
    //

    
Initializes the contents of the XMLString structure with the specified values.

Parameters:
ch The character array.
offset The offset into the character array.
length The length of characters from the offset.
    public void setValues(char[] chint offsetint length) {
        this. = ch;
        this. = offset;
        this. = length;
    } // setValues(char[],int,int)

    
Initializes the contents of the XMLString structure with copies of the given string structure.

Note: This does not copy the character array; only the reference to the array is copied.

Parameters:
s
    public void setValues(XMLString s) {
        setValues(s.chs.offsets.length);
    } // setValues(XMLString)

    
Resets all of the values to their defaults.
    public void clear() {
        this. = null;
        this. = 0;
        this. = -1;
    } // clear()

    
Returns true if the contents of this XMLString structure and the specified array are equal.

Parameters:
ch The character array.
offset The offset into the character array.
length The length of characters from the offset.
    public boolean equals(char[] chint offsetint length) {
        if (ch == null) {
            return false;
        }
        if (this. != length) {
            return false;
        }
        for (int i=0; i<lengthi++) {
            if (this.[this.+i] != ch[offset+i] ) {
                return false;
            }
        }
        return true;
    } // equals(char[],int,int):boolean

    
Returns true if the contents of this XMLString structure and the specified string are equal.

Parameters:
s The string to compare.
    public boolean equals(String s) {
        if (s == null) {
            return false;
        }
        if (  != s.length() ) {
            return false;
        }
        // is this faster than call s.toCharArray first and compare the 
        // two arrays directly, which will possibly involve creating a
        // new char array object.
        for (int i=0; i<i++) {
            if ([+i] != s.charAt(i)) {
                return false;
            }
        }
        return true;
    } // equals(String):boolean
    //
    // Object methods
    //

    
Returns a string representation of this object.
    public String toString() {
        return  > 0 ? new String() : "";
    } // toString():String
// class XMLString
