public interface: XMLObject [javadoc | source]

All Implemented Interfaces:
    XMLStructure

A representation of the XML Object element as defined in the W3C Recommendation for XML-Signature Syntax and Processing. An XMLObject may contain any data and may include optional MIME type, ID, and encoding attributes. The XML Schema Definition is defined as:

<element name="Object" type="ds:ObjectType"/>
<complexType name="ObjectType" mixed="true">
  <sequence minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
    <any namespace="##any" processContents="lax"/>
  </sequence>
  <attribute name="Id" type="ID" use="optional"/>
  <attribute name="MimeType" type="string" use="optional"/>
  <attribute name="Encoding" type="anyURI" use="optional"/>
</complexType>
A XMLObject instance may be created by invoking the newXMLObject method of the XMLSignatureFactory class; for example:
  XMLSignatureFactory fac = XMLSignatureFactory.getInstance("DOM");
  List content = Collections.singletonList(fac.newManifest(references)));
  XMLObject object = factory.newXMLObject(content, "object-1", null, null);

Note that this class is named XMLObject rather than Object to avoid naming clashes with the existing java.lang.Object class.

Field Summary
static final  String TYPE    URI that identifies the Object element (this can be specified as the value of the type parameter of the Reference class to identify the referent's type). 
Method from javax.xml.crypto.dsig.XMLObject Summary:
getContent,   getEncoding,   getId,   getMimeType
Method from javax.xml.crypto.dsig.XMLObject Detail:
 public List getContent()
 public String getEncoding()
    Returns the encoding URI of this XMLObject. The encoding URI identifies the method by which the object is encoded.
 public String getId()
    Returns the Id of this XMLObject.
 public String getMimeType()
    Returns the mime type of this XMLObject. The mime type is an optional attribute which describes the data within this XMLObject (independent of its encoding).
