org.apache.http.message
Class BasicLineParser

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.http.message.BasicLineParser
All Implemented Interfaces:
LineParser

public class BasicLineParser
extends Object
implements LineParser

Basic parser for lines in the head section of an HTTP message. There are individual methods for parsing a request line, a status line, or a header line. The lines to parse are passed in memory, the parser does not depend on any specific IO mechanism. Instances of this class are stateless and thread-safe. Derived classes MUST maintain these properties.

Note: This class was created by refactoring parsing code located in various other classes. The author tags from those other classes have been replicated here, although the association with the parsing code taken from there has not been traced.

Field Detail

DEFAULT

public static final BasicLineParser DEFAULT
A default instance of this class, for use as default or fallback. Note that BasicLineParser is not a singleton, there can be many instances of the class itself and of derived classes. The instance here provides non-customized, default behavior.


protocol

protected final ProtocolVersion protocol
A version of the protocol to parse. The version is typically not relevant, but the protocol name.

Constructor Detail

BasicLineParser

public BasicLineParser(ProtocolVersion proto)
Creates a new line parser for the given HTTP-like protocol.

Parameters:
proto - a version of the protocol to parse, or null for HTTP. The actual version is not relevant, only the protocol name.

BasicLineParser

public BasicLineParser()
Creates a new line parser for HTTP.

Method Detail

parseProtocolVersion

public static final ProtocolVersion parseProtocolVersion(String value,
                                                         LineParser parser)
                                                  throws ParseException
Throws:
ParseException

parseProtocolVersion

public ProtocolVersion parseProtocolVersion(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                                            ParserCursor cursor)
                                     throws ParseException
Description copied from interface: LineParser
Parses the textual representation of a protocol version. This is needed for parsing request lines (last element) as well as status lines (first element).

Specified by:
parseProtocolVersion in interface LineParser
Parameters:
buffer - a buffer holding the protocol version to parse
cursor - the parser cursor containing the current position and the bounds within the buffer for the parsing operation
Returns:
the parsed protocol version
Throws:
ParseException - in case of a parse error

createProtocolVersion

protected ProtocolVersion createProtocolVersion(int major,
                                                int minor)
Creates a protocol version. Called from parseProtocolVersion(java.lang.String, org.apache.http.message.LineParser).

Parameters:
major - the major version number, for example 1 in HTTP/1.0
minor - the minor version number, for example 0 in HTTP/1.0
Returns:
the protocol version

hasProtocolVersion

public boolean hasProtocolVersion(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                                  ParserCursor cursor)
Description copied from interface: LineParser
Checks whether there likely is a protocol version in a line. This method implements a heuristic to check for a likely protocol version specification. It does not guarantee that LineParser.parseProtocolVersion(org.apache.http.util.CharArrayBuffer, org.apache.http.message.ParserCursor) would not detect a parse error. This can be used to detect garbage lines before a request or status line.

Specified by:
hasProtocolVersion in interface LineParser
Parameters:
buffer - a buffer holding the line to inspect
cursor - the cursor at which to check for a protocol version, or negative for "end of line". Whether the check tolerates whitespace before or after the protocol version is implementation dependent.
Returns:
true if there is a protocol version at the argument index (possibly ignoring whitespace), false otherwise

parseRequestLine

public static final RequestLine parseRequestLine(String value,
                                                 LineParser parser)
                                          throws ParseException
Throws:
ParseException

parseRequestLine

public RequestLine parseRequestLine(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                                    ParserCursor cursor)
                             throws ParseException
Parses a request line.

Specified by:
parseRequestLine in interface LineParser
Parameters:

Throws:
ParseException - in case of a parse error

protected RequestLine createRequestLine(String method,
                                        String uri,
                                        ProtocolVersion ver)

Description copied from interface: LineParser
Parses a status line.

Specified by:
parseStatusLine in interface LineParser
Parameters:
buffer - a buffer holding the line to parse
cursor - the parser cursor containing the current position and the bounds within the buffer for the parsing operation
Returns:
the parsed status line

Specified by:
parseHeader in interface LineParser
Parameters:
buffer - a buffer holding the full header line. This buffer MUST NOT be re-used afterwards, since the returned object may reference the contents later.
Returns:
the header in the argument buffer. The returned object MAY be a wrapper for the argument buffer. The argument buffer MUST NOT be re-used or changed afterwards.
Throws:
ParseException - in case of a parse error

skipWhitespace

protected void skipWhitespace(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                              ParserCursor cursor)
