Constructor Detail

SVGBridgeExtension

public SVGBridgeExtension()
Method Detail

getPriority

public float getPriority()
Return the priority of this Extension. Extensions are registered from lowest to highest priority. So if for some reason you need to come before/after another existing extension make sure your priority is lower/higher than theirs.

Specified by:
getPriority in interface BridgeExtension

getImplementedExtensions

public Iterator getImplementedExtensions()
This should return the list of extensions implemented by this BridgeExtension.

Specified by:
getImplementedExtensions in interface BridgeExtension
Returns:
An iterator containing strings one for each implemented extension.

getAuthor

public String getAuthor()
This should return the individual or company name responsible for the this implementation of the extension.

Specified by:
getAuthor in interface BridgeExtension

getContactAddress

public String getContactAddress()
This should contain a contact address (usually an e-mail address).

Specified by:
getContactAddress in interface BridgeExtension

getURL

public String getURL()
This should return a URL where information can be obtained on this extension.

Specified by:
getURL in interface BridgeExtension

getDescription

public String getDescription()
Human readable description of the extension. Perhaps that should be a resource for internationalization? (although I suppose it could be done internally)

Specified by:
getDescription in interface BridgeExtension

registerTags

public void registerTags(BridgeContext ctx)
This method should update the BridgeContext with support for the tags in this extension. In some rare cases it may be necessary to replace existing tag handlers, although this is discouraged.

Specified by:
registerTags in interface BridgeExtension
Parameters:
ctx - The BridgeContext instance to be updated

isDynamicElement

public boolean isDynamicElement(Element e)
Whether the presence of the specified element should cause the document to be dynamic. If this element isn't handled by this BridgeExtension, just return false.

Specified by:
isDynamicElement in interface BridgeExtension
Parameters:
e - The element to check.
