public abstract class SMOutputtable
- extends java.lang.Object
Basic building block for all outputtable content within StaxMate.
Used as the base for both "active" nodes (elements, fragments; both
buffered and unbuffered variations, entities that are created for
output scoping, ie. as output containers)
and those "passive" nodes that are blocked (ones for which instances
are only created when they can not be output right away).
It will not be passed for content that can be directly output
without buffering (non-blocked text, CDATA, PIs, entity references
and so on).
Note that parent linkage is not included at this level since it is
really only needed for active nodes (output containers; all of them
since a non-bufferable container may still contain buffered containers).

protected abstract boolean doOutput(SMOutputContext ctxt,
- Method called to request that the entity output itself; either
as much as it can without closing, or as much as it can if it is to
get closed. In both cases output can fail or be only a partial one:
buffered nodes will not be output at all, and nodes with buffered
children can only be partially output.
ctxt - Output context to use for outputting this node (and
canClose - If true, indicates that the node can (and should)
be fully closed if possible. This (passing true) is usually done
when a new sibling
is added after a node (element/fragment); if so, current one
should be recursively closed. If false, should only try to output
as much as can be done without forcing closures.
- True if the whole node could be output, ie. neither it nor
its children are buffered.
protected abstract void forceOutput(SMOutputContext ctxt)
- Method similar to
doOutput(org.codehaus.staxmate.out.SMOutputContext, boolean), except that this method will
always succeed in doing the output. Specifically, it will force all
buffered nodes to be unbuffered, and then output.
