All Implemented Interfaces:
BeanNameAware, ApplicationContextAware, ServletContextAware, View

Deprecated. since Spring 2.5; superseded by XsltView and its more flexible XsltView.locateSource(java.util.Map) mechanism

@Deprecated
public abstract class AbstractXsltView
extends AbstractView

Convenient superclass for views rendered using an XSLT stylesheet.

Subclasses typically must provide the Source to transform by overriding createXsltSource(java.util.Map, java.lang.String, javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest, javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse). Subclasses do not need to concern themselves with XSLT other than providing a valid stylesheet location.

Properties:

Note that setting "cache" to false will cause the template objects to be reloaded for each rendering. This is useful during development, but will seriously affect performance in production and is not thread-safe.

Constructor Detail

AbstractXsltView

protected AbstractXsltView()
Deprecated. 
This constructor sets the content type to "text/xml;charset=ISO-8859-1" by default. This will be switched to the standard web view default "text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1" if a stylesheet location has been specified.

A specific content type can be configured via the "contentType" bean property.

Method Detail

setContentType

public void setContentType(java.lang.String contentType)
Deprecated. 
Description copied from class: AbstractView
Set the content type for this view. Default is "text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1".

May be ignored by subclasses if the view itself is assumed to set the content type, e.g. in case of JSPs.

Overrides:
setContentType in class AbstractView

setTransformerFactoryClass

public void setTransformerFactoryClass(java.lang.Class transformerFactoryClass)
Deprecated. 
Specify the XSLT TransformerFactory class to use.

The default constructor of the specified class will be called to build the TransformerFactory for this view.


setStylesheetLocation

public void setStylesheetLocation(Resource stylesheetLocation)
Deprecated. 
Set the location of the XSLT stylesheet.

If the TransformerFactory used by this instance has already been initialized then invoking this setter will result in the attendant templates being re-cached.

Parameters:
stylesheetLocation - the location of the XSLT stylesheet
See Also:
ResourceLoader.getResource(java.lang.String)

getStylesheetLocation

protected Resource getStylesheetLocation()
Deprecated. 
Return the location of the XSLT stylesheet, if any.


setRoot

public void setRoot(java.lang.String root)
Deprecated. 
The document root element name. Default is "DocRoot".

Only used if we're not passed a single Node as the model.

Parameters:
root - the document root element name
See Also:
DEFAULT_ROOT

setUseSingleModelNameAsRoot

public void setUseSingleModelNameAsRoot(boolean useSingleModelNameAsRoot)
Deprecated. 
Set whether to use the name of a given single model object as the document root element name.

Default is true : If you pass in a model with a single object named "myElement", then the document root will be named "myElement" as well. Set this flag to false if you want to pass in a single model object while still using the root element name configured through the "root" property.

Parameters:
useSingleModelNameAsRoot - true if the name of a given single model object is to be used as the document root element name
See Also:
setRoot(java.lang.String)

setUriResolver

public void setUriResolver(javax.xml.transform.URIResolver uriResolver)
Deprecated. 
Set the URIResolver used in the transform.

The URIResolver handles calls to the XSLT document() function.


setErrorListener

public void setErrorListener(javax.xml.transform.ErrorListener errorListener)
Deprecated. 
Set an implementation of the ErrorListener interface for custom handling of transformation errors and warnings.

If not set, a default SimpleTransformErrorListener is used that simply logs warnings using the logger instance of the view class, and rethrows errors to discontinue the XML transformation.

See Also:
SimpleTransformErrorListener

setIndent

public void setIndent(boolean indent)
Deprecated. 
Set whether the XSLT transformer may add additional whitespace when outputting the result tree.

Default is true (on); set this to false (off) to not specify an "indent" key, leaving the choice up to the stylesheet.

See Also:
OutputKeys.INDENT

setOutputProperties

public void setOutputProperties(java.util.Properties outputProperties)
Deprecated. 
Set arbitrary transformer output properties to be applied to the stylesheet.

Any values specified here will override defaults that this view sets programmatically.

See Also:
Transformer.setOutputProperty(java.lang.String, java.lang.String)

setCache

public void setCache(boolean cache)
Deprecated. 
Set whether to activate the template cache for this view.

Default is true. Turn this off to refresh the Templates object on every access, e.g. during development.

See Also:
resetCachedTemplates()

resetCachedTemplates

public final void resetCachedTemplates()
Deprecated. 
Reset the cached Templates object, if any.

The Templates object will subsequently be rebuilt on next access, if caching is enabled.

See Also:
setCache(boolean)

initApplicationContext

protected final void initApplicationContext()
                                     throws ApplicationContextException
Deprecated. 
Here we load our template, as we need the ApplicationContext to do it.

Overrides:
initApplicationContext in class ApplicationObjectSupport
Throws:
ApplicationContextException - in case of initialization errors
See Also:
ApplicationObjectSupport.setApplicationContext(org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext)

newTransformerFactory

protected javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory newTransformerFactory(java.lang.Class transformerFactoryClass)
Deprecated. 
Instantiate a new TransformerFactory for this view.

The default implementation simply calls TransformerFactory.newInstance(). If a "transformerFactoryClass" has been specified explicitly, the default constructor of the specified class will be called instead.

Can be overridden in subclasses.

Parameters:
transformerFactoryClass - the specified factory class (if any)
Returns:
the new TransactionFactory instance
Throws:
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactoryConfigurationError - in case of instantiation failure
See Also:
setTransformerFactoryClass(java.lang.Class), getTransformerFactory()

getTransformerFactory

protected final javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory getTransformerFactory()
Deprecated. 
Return the TransformerFactory used by this view. Available once the View object has been fully initialized.


renderMergedOutputModel

protected final void renderMergedOutputModel(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.Object> model,
                                             javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request,
                                             javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse response)
                                      throws java.lang.Exception
Deprecated. 
Description copied from class: AbstractView
Subclasses must implement this method to actually render the view.

The first step will be preparing the request: In the JSP case, this would mean setting model objects as request attributes. The second step will be the actual rendering of the view, for example including the JSP via a RequestDispatcher.

Specified by:
renderMergedOutputModel in class AbstractView
Parameters:
model - combined output Map (never null), with dynamic values taking precedence over static attributes
request - current HTTP request
response - current HTTP response
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - if rendering failed

createXsltSource

protected javax.xml.transform.Source createXsltSource(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.Object> model,
                                                      java.lang.String root,
                                                      javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request,
                                                      javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse response)
                                               throws java.lang.Exception
Deprecated. 
Return the XML Source to transform.

Parameters:
model - the model Map
root - name for root element. This can be supplied as a bean property to concrete subclasses within the view definition file, but will be overridden in the case of a single object in the model map to be the key for that object. If no root property is specified and multiple model objects exist, a default root tag name will be supplied.
request - HTTP request. Subclasses won't normally use this, as request processing should have been complete. However, we might want to create a RequestContext to expose as part of the model.
response - HTTP response. Subclasses won't normally use this, however there may sometimes be a need to set cookies.
Returns:
the XSLT Source to transform
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - if an error occurs

doTransform

protected void doTransform(java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.lang.Object> model,
                           javax.xml.transform.Source source,

                    throws java.lang.Exception
Deprecated. 
Perform the actual transformation, writing to the HTTP response.

The default implementation delegates to the doTransform(javax.xml.transform.Source, java.util.Map, javax.xml.transform.Result, String) method, building a StreamResult for the ServletResponse OutputStream or for the ServletResponse Writer (according to useWriter()).

Parameters:
model - the model Map
source - the Source to transform

whether to use a Writer (true) or an OutputStream (false)
See Also:
ServletResponse.getWriter(), ServletResponse.getOutputStream()

doTransform

protected void doTransform(javax.xml.transform.Source source,
