public interface ErrorListener
To provide customized error handling, implement this interface and
setErrorListener method to register an instance of the
implementation with the
Transformer then reports all errors and warnings through this
If an application does not register its own custom
ErrorListener, the default
is used which reports all warnings and errors to
and does not throw any
Applications are strongly encouraged to register and use
ErrorListeners that insure proper behavior for warnings and
For transformation errors, a
Transformer must use this
interface instead of throwing an
Exception: it is up to the
application to decide whether to throw an
different types of errors and warnings. Note however that the
Transformer is not required to continue with the transformation
after a call to
Transformers may use this mechanism to report XML parsing
errors as well as transformation errors.
Modifier and Type Method Description
error(TransformerException exception)Receive notification of a recoverable error.
fatalError(TransformerException exception)Receive notification of a non-recoverable error.
warning(TransformerException exception)Receive notification of a warning.
Receive notification of a warning.
Transformercan use this method to report conditions that are not errors or fatal errors. The default behaviour is to take no action.
After invoking this method, the Transformer must continue with the transformation. It should still be possible for the application to process the document through to the end.
Receive notification of a recoverable error.
The transformer must continue to try and provide normal transformation after invoking this method. It should still be possible for the application to process the document through to the end if no other errors are encountered.
Receive notification of a non-recoverable error.
The processor may choose to continue, but will not normally proceed to a successful completion.
The method should throw an exception if it is unable to process the error, or if it wishes execution to terminate immediately. The processor will not necessarily honor this request.
