Class GenericXml

public class GenericXml extends GenericData implements Cloneable

Beta
Generic XML data that stores all unknown key name/value pairs.

Each data key name maps into the name of the XPath expression value for the XML element, attribute, or text content (using "text()"). Subclasses can declare fields for known XML content using the Key annotation. Each field can be of any visibility (private, package private, protected, or public) and must not be static. null unknown data key names are not allowed, but null data values are allowed.

Implementation is not thread-safe. For a thread-safe choice instead use an implementation of ConcurrentMap.

Methods

Makes a "deep" clone of the generic data, in which the clone is completely independent of the original.

GenericXml

set(String fieldName, Object value)

public GenericXml set(String fieldName, Object value)

Sets the given field value (may be null) for the given field name. Any existing value for the field will be overwritten. It may be more slightly more efficient than #put(String, Object) because it avoids accessing the field's original value.

Overriding is only supported for the purpose of calling the super implementation and changing the return type, but nothing else.
