Allow the application to resolve external entities.
The DOMBuilder will call this method before opening any external entity except the top-level document entity (including the external DTD subset, external entities referenced within the DTD, and external entities referenced within the document element): the application may request that the DOMBuilder resolve the entity itself, that it use an alternative URI, or that it use an entirely different input source.
Application writers can use this method to redirect external system identifiers to secure and/or local URIs, to look up public identifiers in a catalogue, or to read an entity from a database or other input source (including, for example, a dialog box).
If the system identifier is a URL, the DOMBuilder parser must resolve it fully before reporting it to the application.
The returned DOMInputSource is owned by the DOMBuilder which is responsible to clean up the memory.
"Experimental - subject to change"
|publicId ||The public identifier of the external entity being referenced, or null if none was supplied. |
|systemId ||The system identifier of the external entity being referenced. |
|baseURI ||The absolute base URI of the resource being parsed, or |
null if there is no base URI.
- A DOMInputSource object describing the new input source, or
null to request that the parser open a regular URI connection to the system identifier. The returned DOMInputSource is owned by the DOMBuilder which is responsible to clean up the memory.
