Class NodeAttributes

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    NodeName

    public class NodeAttributes
    extends Object
    implements NodeName
    The NodeAttributes class contains all attributes for an XML tag.

    This class DOES NOT support XML tags with attributes AND values, it only supports attributes.

    This class can be used for an intermediate conversion result of attributes for an XML tag. The conversion can be done by using the according NodeAttributesConverter.
