Description:XPath Document API

XDA is a representation implemented by the Java class/interface org.netkernel.xml.xda.IXDAReadOnly.

Javadoc may be available but not built for this representation. Build here.

Import Requirements

To use XDA representation you must import the module urn:org:netkernel:xml:core:


The XML Document API (XDA) was developed by 1060 Research to provide an API around an XML document which cleanly separates read-only and mutation operations into clean interfaces. Methods generally use semi-declarative XPath expressions to define which nodes are read or changed.

Usually the IXDAReadOnly is used as a representation due to it's immutability. Then endpoints which wish to mutate the document can get a mutable clone using the getClone() method, this returns the IXDA interface.
