Class ClassLocator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Locator, XMLResourcesLocator

    public class ClassLocator
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements XMLResourcesLocator
    The locator searches the current thread's context class loader, and then this class's class loader.

    It is important to use this locator if you want to load something in other jar files.

    Since this locator is used frequently, Locators.getDefault() is provided to return an instance of this class,

                                                                                     java.lang.String elName,

        Description copied from interface: XMLResourcesLocator
        Returns a list of resources (XMLResourcesLocator.Resource) after resolving the dependence. The resource is returned in the format of XMLResourcesLocator.Resource

        To resolve the dependence, it assumes each resource has two element whose name is identified by elName and elDepends. The elName element specifies the unique name of each resource. The elDepends element specifies a list of names of resources that this resource depends on. If not found, it assumes it could be loaded first.

        Specified by:
        getDependentXMLResources in interface XMLResourcesLocator
        name - the resource name, such as "metainfo/config.xml".
        elName - the element used to specify the name.
        elDepends - the element used to specify the dependence.
        a list of XMLResourcesLocator.Resource of the specified name.
