        Constant Field Values
      • headerIt

        protected final HeaderIterator headerIt
        The iterator from which to obtain the next header.
      • currentHeader

        protected String currentHeader
        The value of the current header. This is the header value that includes currentToken. Undefined if the iteration is over.
      • currentToken

        protected String currentToken
        The token to be returned by the next call to nextToken(). null if the iteration is over.

      • BasicTokenIterator

        public BasicTokenIterator(HeaderIterator headerIterator)
        Creates a new instance of BasicTokenIterator.
        Parameters:
        headerIterator - the iterator for the headers to tokenize
    • Method Detail

      • hasNext

        public boolean hasNext()
        Description copied from interface: TokenIterator
        Indicates whether there is another token in this iteration.
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface Iterator<Object>
        Specified by:
        hasNext in interface TokenIterator
        Returns:
        true if there is another token, false otherwise
      • findNext

        protected int findNext(int pos)
                        throws ParseException
        Determines the next token. If found, the token is stored in currentToken. The return value indicates the position after the token in currentHeader. If necessary, the next header will be obtained from headerIt. If not found, currentToken is set to null.
        Parameters:
        pos - the position in the current header at which to start the search, -1 to search in the first header
        Returns:
        the position after the found token in the current header, or negative if there was no next token
        Throws:
        ParseException - if an invalid header value is encountered
      • createToken

        protected String createToken(String value,
                         int start,
                         int end)
        Creates a new token to be returned. Called from findNext after the token is identified. The default implementation simply calls String.substring.
        If header values are significantly longer than tokens, and some tokens are permanently referenced by the application, there can be problems with garbage collection. A substring will hold a reference to the full characters of the original string and therefore occupies more memory than might be expected. To avoid this, override this method and create a new string instead of a substring.
        Parameters:
        value - the full header value from which to create a token
        start - the index of the first token character
        end - the index after the last token character
        Returns:
        a string representing the token identified by the arguments
      • findTokenStart

        protected int findTokenStart(int pos)
        Determines the starting position of the next token. This method will iterate over headers if necessary.
        Parameters:
        pos - the position in the current header at which to start the search
        Returns:
        the position of the token start in the current header, negative if no token start could be found
      • findTokenSeparator

        protected int findTokenSeparator(int pos)
        Determines the position of the next token separator. Because of multi-header joining rules, the end of a header value is a token separator. This method does therefore not need to iterate over headers.
        Parameters:
        pos - the position in the current header at which to start the search
        Returns:
        the position of a token separator in the current header, or at the end
        Throws:
        ParseException - if a new token is found before a token separator. RFC 2616, section 2.1 explicitly requires a comma between tokens for #.
      • findTokenEnd

        protected int findTokenEnd(int from)
        Determines the ending position of the current token. This method will not leave the current header value, since the end of the header value is a token boundary.
        Parameters:
        from - the position of the first character of the token
        Returns:
        the position after the last character of the token. The behavior is undefined if from does not point to a token character in the current header value.
      • isTokenSeparator

        protected boolean isTokenSeparator(char ch)
        Checks whether a character is a token separator. RFC 2616, section 2.1 defines comma as the separator for #token sequences. The end of a header value will also separate tokens, but that is not a character check.
        Parameters:
        ch - the character to check
        Returns:
        true if the character is a token separator, false otherwise
      • isWhitespace

        protected boolean isWhitespace(char ch)
        Checks whether a character is a whitespace character. RFC 2616, section 2.2 defines space and horizontal tab as whitespace. The optional preceeding line break is irrelevant, since header continuation is handled transparently when parsing messages.
        Parameters:
        ch - the character to check
        Returns:
        true if the character is whitespace, false otherwise
      • isTokenChar

        protected boolean isTokenChar(char ch)
        Checks whether a character is a valid token character. Whitespace, control characters, and HTTP separators are not valid token characters. The HTTP specification (RFC 2616, section 2.2) defines tokens only for the US-ASCII character set, this method extends the definition to other character sets.
        Parameters:
        ch - the character to check
        Returns:
        true if the character is a valid token start, false otherwise
      • isHttpSeparator

        protected boolean isHttpSeparator(char ch)
        Checks whether a character is an HTTP separator. The implementation in this class checks only for the HTTP separators defined in RFC 2616, section 2.2. If you need to detect other separators beyond the US-ASCII character set, override this method.
        Parameters:
        ch - the character to check
        Returns:
        true if the character is an HTTP separator
