Method Detail

getPriority

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.


getAuthor

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


getContactAddress

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


getURL

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


getDescription

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


registerTags

void registerTags(ExtensibleDOMImplementation di)
This method should update the DOMImplementation 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. This is called before the DOMImplementation starts.

Parameters:
di - The DOMImplementation instance to be updated
