Interface IParser

All Known Implementing Classes:
JsonParser, JsonParserBase, ParserBase, RdfParser, RdfParserBase, XmlParser, XmlParserBase

public interface IParser
General interface - either an XML or JSON parser: read or write instances Defined to allow a factory to create a parser of the right type
  • Method Details

    • getType

      check what kind of parser this is
      Returns:
      what kind of parser this is
    • getHandleComments

      Whether to parse or ignore comments - either reading or writing
    • setHandleComments

      IParser setHandleComments(boolean value)
    • isAllowUnknownContent

      Parameters:
      allowUnknownContent - Whether to throw an exception if unknown content is found (or just skip it) when parsing
    • setAllowUnknownContent

    • getOutputStyle

      Writing:
    • setOutputStyle

    • setSuppressXhtml

      This method is used by the publication tooling to stop the xhrtml narrative being generated. It is not valid to use in production use. The tooling uses it to generate json/xml representations in html that are not cluttered by escaped html representations of the html representation

      DataType parseType(InputStream input, String knownType) throws IOException, org.hl7.fhir.exceptions.FHIRFormatError
      This is used to parse a type - a fragment of a resource. There's no reason to use this in production - it's used in the build tools Not supported by all implementations

      Throws:
