Building a Source Document from an application
In Java, the recommended way to build a Saxon tree in memory is to use the
Configuration object. (When using the JAXP Transformation API, the
can be obtained from the
TransformerFactory as the value of the attribute named
buildDocument() method takes a single argument, a JAXP
Source. This can be any of the standard
kinds of JAXP
Source. See JAXP Sources for more information.
All the documents processed in a single transformation or query must be loaded using the same
Configuration. However, it is possible to copy a document from one Configuration
into another by supplying the
DocumentInfo at the root of the existing document
Source supplied to the
buildDocument() method of the new Configuration.
In the .NET API, there is a
DocumentBuilder object that can be created from the processor. This allows options
to be set controlling the way documents are built, and provides an overloaded
Build method allowing a tree to
be built from various kinds of source.
