Interface LineParser

All Known Implementing Classes:
BasicLineParser

public interface LineParser

Interface for parsing 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 interface are expected to be stateless and thread-safe.

Since:
4.0

 Header parseHeader(CharArrayBuffer buffer)
          Creates a header from a line.
 ProtocolVersion parseProtocolVersion(CharArrayBuffer buffer, ParserCursor cursor)
          Parses the textual representation of a protocol version.
 RequestLine parseRequestLine(CharArrayBuffer buffer, ParserCursor cursor)
          Parses a request line.
 StatusLine parseStatusLine(CharArrayBuffer buffer, ParserCursor cursor)
          Parses a status line.
 

Method Detail

parseProtocolVersion

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

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

hasProtocolVersion

boolean hasProtocolVersion(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                           ParserCursor cursor)
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 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.

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

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

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 request line
Throws:
ParseException - in case of a parse error

parseStatusLine

StatusLine parseStatusLine(CharArrayBuffer buffer,
                           ParserCursor cursor)
                           throws ParseException
Parses a status line.

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
Throws:
ParseException - in case of a parse error

parseHeader

Header parseHeader(CharArrayBuffer buffer)
                   throws ParseException
Creates a header from a line. The full header line is expected here. Header continuation lines must be joined by the caller before invoking this method.

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
