Class CamelCaseStyle

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.simpleframework.xml.stream.CamelCaseStyle
All Implemented Interfaces:
Style

public class CamelCaseStyle
extends Object
implements Style

The CamelCaseStyle is used to represent an XML style that can be applied to a serialized object. A style can be used to modify the element and attribute names for the generated document. This styles can be used to generate camel case XML.

 
    <ExampleElement>
        <ChildElement exampleAttribute='example'>
           <InnerElement>example</InnerElement>
        </ChildElement>
     </ExampleElement>
     
 
Above the camel case XML elements and attributes can be generated from a style implementation. Styles enable the same objects to be serialized in different ways, generating different styles of XML without having to modify the class schema for that object.

Constructor Detail

CamelCaseStyle

public CamelCaseStyle()
Constructor for the CamelCaseStyle object. This is used to create a style that will create camel case XML attributes and elements allowing a consistent format for generated XML. By default the elements have an upper case initial character and a lower case attribute.


CamelCaseStyle

public CamelCaseStyle(boolean element)
Constructor for the CamelCaseStyle object. This is used to create a style that will create camel case XML attributes and elements allowing a consistent format for generated XML. By default the attributes have a lower case initial character and an configurable element.

Parameters:
element - if true the element will start as upper case

CamelCaseStyle

public CamelCaseStyle(boolean element,
                      boolean attribute)
Constructor for the CamelCaseStyle object. This is used to create a style that will create camel case XML attributes and elements allowing a consistent format for generated XML. Both the attribute an elements are configurable.

Parameters:
element - if true the element will start as upper case
attribute - if true the attribute starts as upper case
Method Detail

getAttribute

public String getAttribute(String name)
This is used to generate the XML attribute representation of the specified name. Attribute names should ensure to keep the uniqueness of the name such that two different names will be styled in to two different strings.

Specified by:
getAttribute in interface Style
Parameters:
name - this is the attribute name that is to be styled
Returns:
this returns the styled name of the XML attribute

setAttribute

public void setAttribute(String name,
                         String value)
This is used to set the attribute values within this builder. Overriding the attribute values ensures that the default algorithm does not need to determine each of the values. It allows special behaviour that the user may require for XML.

Parameters:
name - the name of the XML attribute to be overridden
value - the value that is to be used for that attribute

getElement

public String getElement(String name)
This is used to generate the XML element representation of the specified name. Element names should ensure to keep the uniqueness of the name such that two different names will be styled in to two different strings.

Specified by:
getElement in interface Style
Parameters:
name - this is the element name that is to be styled
Returns:
this returns the styled name of the XML element

setElement

public void setElement(String name,
                       String value)
This is used to set the element values within this builder. Overriding the element values ensures that the default algorithm does not need to determine each of the values. It allows special behaviour that the user may require for XML.

Parameters:
name - the name of the XML element to be overridden
value - the value that is to be used for that element
