All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface XMLStreamReaderExt
extends XMLStreamReader
This interface extends the simple XMLStreamReader interface adding methods to get java objects asociated with schemas simple types like: ints, long, BigIntegers, Dates etc Note: Given the fact that an implemetation of this interface will not run validation in the stream, we will not include support for lists, enumeration and unions. They might be possible to introduce but the user has to push the corect schema type. Because usualy the backends are not list/union aware, there would be not performance win from this. If interest rises for this, support should be added. Author: Cezar Andrei (cezar.andrei at Date: Nov 14, 2003
