Subject [jira] [Updated] (COLLECTIONS-322) Adds a Collections wrapper around the w3c NodeList
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 10:29:13 GMT


Thomas Vahrst updated COLLECTIONS-322:

    Attachment: nodelistAsIterable.patch

I implemented the suggested Utility methods, which provide an Iterable for a given NodeList
or ParentNode. See nodelistAsIterable.patch

I chose IteratorUtils as implementation class, I found this class matching best  for the new

The util methods now allow easy iteration over org.w3c.NodeLists or ChildNodes of a given
parent node:

for(Node childNode : IteratorUtils.asIterable(parentNode){
  ... do something;

> org.w3c.dom.NodeList is defined as an "abstract collection of Nodes" and java.util.List
is defined as "An ordered collection (also known as a sequence). The user of this interface
has precise control over where in the list each element is inserted. The user can access elements
by their integer index (position in the list), and search for elements in the list.". It seemed
similar enough, so I did an implementation of the useful methods, while throwing the appropriate
exception when the method wouldn't make sense.
