class ParserEngine

Library: XML
Package: XML
Header: Poco/XML/ParserEngine.h

Description

This class provides an object-oriented, stream-based, low-level interface to the XML Parser Toolkit (expat). It is strongly recommended, that you use the SAX parser classes (which are based on this class) instead of this class, since they provide a standardized, higher-level interface to the parser.

Constructors

ParserEngine

ParserEngine();

Creates the parser engine.

ParserEngine

ParserEngine(
    const XMLString & encoding
);

Creates the parser engine and passes the encoding to the underlying parser.

Destructor

~ParserEngine virtual

~ParserEngine();

Destroys the parser.

Member Functions

addEncoding

void addEncoding(
    const XMLString & name,
    Poco::TextEncoding * pEncoding
);

Adds an encoding to the parser.

getColumnNumber virtual

int getColumnNumber() const;

Return the column number where the current document event ends.

getContentHandler inline

ContentHandler * getContentHandler() const;

Return the current content handler.

getDTDHandler inline

DTDHandler * getDTDHandler() const;

Return the current DTD handler.

getDeclHandler inline

DeclHandler * getDeclHandler() const;

Return the current DTD declarations handler.

getEnablePartialReads inline

bool getEnablePartialReads() const;

Returns true if partial reads are enabled (see setEnablePartialReads()), false otherwise.

const XMLString & getEncoding() const;

Returns the encoding used by expat.

getEntityResolver inline

EntityResolver * getEntityResolver() const;

Return the current entity resolver.

getErrorHandler inline

ErrorHandler * getErrorHandler() const;

Return the current error handler.

getExpandInternalEntities inline

bool getExpandInternalEntities() const;

Returns true if internal entities will be expanded automatically, which is the default.

getExternalGeneralEntities inline

bool getExternalGeneralEntities() const;

Returns true if external general entities will be processed; false otherwise.

getExternalParameterEntities inline

bool getExternalParameterEntities() const;

Returns true if external parameter entities will be processed; false otherwise.

getLexicalHandler inline

getPublicId virtual

XMLString getPublicId() const;

Return the public identifier for the current document event.

getSystemId virtual

XMLString getSystemId() const;

parse

void parse(
    InputSource * pInputSource
);

Parse an XML document from the given InputSource.

parse

void parse(
    const char * pBuffer,
    std::size_t size
);

Parses an XML document from the given buffer.

setBillionLaughsAttackProtectionActivationThreshold

void setBillionLaughsAttackProtectionActivationThreshold(
    Poco::UInt64 activationThresholdBytes
);

Sets number of output bytes (including amplification from entity expansion and reading DTD files) needed to activate protection against Billion Laughs Attacks.

Defaults to 8 MiB.

Requires an underlying Expat version >= 2.4.0.

setBillionLaughsAttackProtectionMaximumAmplification

void setBillionLaughsAttackProtectionMaximumAmplification(
    float maximumAmplificationFactor
);

Sets the maximum tolerated amplification factor for protection against Billion Laughs Attacks.

The amplification factor is calculated as:

amplification := (direct + indirect) / direct

while parsing, whereas:

  • direct is the number of bytes read from the primary document in parsing and
  • indirect is the number of bytes added by expanding entities and reading of external DTD files, combined.

maximumAmplificationFactor must be non-NaN and greater than or equal to 1.0.

Requires an underlying Expat version >= 2.4.0.

setContentHandler

void setContentHandler(
    ContentHandler * pContentHandler
);

Allow an application to register a content event handler.

setDTDHandler

void setDTDHandler(
    DTDHandler * pDTDHandler
);

Allow an application to register a DTD event handler.

setDeclHandler

void setDeclHandler(
    DeclHandler * pDeclHandler
);

Allow an application to register a DTD declarations event handler.

setEnablePartialReads

void setEnablePartialReads(
    bool flag = true
);

Enable or disable partial reads from the input source.

This is useful for parsing XML from a socket stream for a protocol like XMPP, where basically single elements are read one at a time from the input source's stream, and following elements depend upon responses sent back to the peer.

Normally, the parser always reads blocks of PARSE_BUFFER_SIZE at a time, and blocks until a complete block has been read (or the end of the stream has been reached). This allows for efficient parsing of "complete" XML documents, but fails in a case such as XMPP, where only XML fragments are sent at a time.

setEncoding

void setEncoding(
    const XMLString & encoding
);

Sets the encoding used by expat. The encoding must be set before parsing begins, otherwise it will be ignored.

setEntityResolver

void setEntityResolver(
    EntityResolver * pResolver
);

Allow an application to register an entity resolver.

setErrorHandler

void setErrorHandler(
    ErrorHandler * pErrorHandler
);

Allow an application to register an error event handler.

setExpandInternalEntities

void setExpandInternalEntities(
    bool flag = true
);

Enables/disables expansion of internal entities (enabled by default). If entity expansion is disabled, internal entities are reported via the default handler. Must be set before parsing begins, otherwise it will be ignored.

setExternalGeneralEntities

void setExternalGeneralEntities(
    bool flag = true
);

Enable or disable processing of external general entities.

setExternalParameterEntities

void setExternalParameterEntities(
    bool flag = true
);

Enable or disable processing of external parameter entities.

setLexicalHandler

void setLexicalHandler(
    LexicalHandler * pLexicalHandler
);

Allow an application to register a lexical event handler.

setNamespaceStrategy

void setNamespaceStrategy(
    NamespaceStrategy * pStrategy
);

Sets the NamespaceStrategy used by the parser. The parser takes ownership of the strategy object and deletes it when it's no longer needed. The default is NoNamespacesStrategy.
