Method Detail

register

public TypeMapping register(java.lang.String encodingStyleURI,
                            TypeMapping mapping)
Registers a TypeMapping instance with the TypeMappingRegistry. This method replaces any existing registered TypeMapping instance for the specified encodingStyleURI.

Parameters:
encodingStyleURI - An encoding style specified as an URI. An example is "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"
mapping - TypeMapping instance
Returns:
Previous TypeMapping associated with the specified encodingStyleURI, or null if there was no TypeMapping associated with the specified encodingStyleURI
Throws:
JAXRPCException - if there is any error that prevents the registration of the TypeMapping for the specified encodingStyleURI

registerDefault

public void registerDefault(TypeMapping mapping)
Registers the TypeMapping instance that is default for all encoding styles supported by the TypeMappingRegistry. A default TypeMapping should include serializers and deserializers that are independent of and usable with any encoding style. Successive invocations of the registerDefault method replace any existing default TypeMapping instance.

If the default TypeMapping is registered, any other TypeMapping instances registered through the TypeMappingRegistry.register method (for a set of encodingStyle URIs) override the default TypeMapping.

Parameters:
mapping - TypeMapping instance
Throws:
JAXRPCException - if there is any error that prevents the registration of the default TypeMapping

getDefaultTypeMapping

public TypeMapping getDefaultTypeMapping()
Gets the registered default TypeMapping instance. This method returns null if there is no registered default TypeMapping in the registry.

Returns:
The registered default TypeMapping instance or null

getRegisteredEncodingStyleURIs

public java.lang.String[] getRegisteredEncodingStyleURIs()
Returns a list of registered encodingStyle URIs in this TypeMappingRegistry instance.

Returns:
Array of the registered encodingStyle URIs

getTypeMapping

public TypeMapping getTypeMapping(java.lang.String encodingStyleURI)
Returns the registered TypeMapping for the specified encodingStyle URI. If there is no registered TypeMapping for the specified encodingStyleURI, this method returns null.

Parameters:
encodingStyleURI - Encoding style specified as an URI
Returns:
TypeMapping for the specified encodingStyleURI or null

createTypeMapping

public TypeMapping createTypeMapping()
Creates a new empty TypeMapping object.

Returns:
TypeMapping instance.

unregisterTypeMapping

public TypeMapping unregisterTypeMapping(java.lang.String encodingStyleURI)
Unregisters a TypeMapping instance, if present, from the specified encodingStyleURI.

Parameters:
encodingStyleURI - Encoding style specified as an URI
Returns:
TypeMapping instance that has been unregistered or null if there was no TypeMapping registered for the specified encodingStyleURI

removeTypeMapping

public boolean removeTypeMapping(TypeMapping mapping)
Removes a TypeMapping from the TypeMappingRegistry. A TypeMapping is associated with 1 or more encodingStyleURIs. This method unregisters the specified TypeMapping instance from all associated encodingStyleURIs and then removes this TypeMapping instance from the registry.

Parameters:
mapping - TypeMapping to remove
Returns:
true if specified TypeMapping is removed from the TypeMappingRegistry; false if the specified TypeMapping was not in the TypeMappingRegistry

clear

public void clear()
Removes all registered TypeMappings and encodingStyleURIs from this TypeMappingRegistry.
