This appendix describes the SAX 2.0 standard features and properties. Although a vendor’s parsing software can add additional features and properties for vendor-specific functionality, this list represents the core set of functionality that any SAX 2.0-compliant parser implementation should support.
The core set of
features supported by SAX 2.0
implementations is listed here. These features can be set through
setFeature(), and the value of a feature can be
getFeature(). Any feature can be
read-only or read/write; features also may be modifiable only when
parsing is occurring, or only when parsing is not occurring. For more
information on SAX features and properties, refer to Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.
This feature instructs a parser to perform namespace processing,
which causes namespace prefixes, namespace URIs, and element local
names to be available through the SAX namespace callbacks
endPrefixMapping(), as well as certain parameters
endElement()). When this feature is true, the
processing will occur. When false, namespace processing will not
occur (this implies that the namespace prefix reporting feature is
on). The default in most parsers is true.
