The parsers package is a set of files used for reading, validating and writing the model classes.
All methods and classes of this package are for internal use of the library. No third party application should use them as they are all connected to the model classes
Reading files are used to read the SDMX files and parse its information.
The methods for reading and writing the metadata are triggered from the parsers but can be found on each model class.
Data generic file contains a set of classes to parse the SDMX Generic file format.
Data parser contains the superclass for all parsing classes. Parsing is based on the Factory design pattern with slight modifications for XML files:
Build attributes: parses the attributes for each XML element
Build children: parses the child of each XML element, calling the proper factory method
Message parsers contains the classes to parse the XML elements in a Message. It also includes some classes for parsing the metadata XML elements, which call the relevant model classes.
Payload parsers contains the classes to parse the structures of a header in a data message
References contains the classes to parse the XML elements that references a SDMX object from another.
Data validations file includes functions for validating data in a Dataset. Please refer to the Validations Page for more details.
Metadata validations includes methods to check if the referenced objects are in the same file at parsing.
The writing file includes all methods to write the data or metadata to a SDMX-ML file.
