Class DOMStructure

  extended by javax.xml.crypto.dom.DOMStructure
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class DOMStructure
extends Object
implements XMLStructure

A DOM-specific XMLStructure. The purpose of this class is to allow a DOM node to be used to represent extensible content (any elements or mixed content) in XML Signature structures.

If a sequence of nodes is needed, the node contained in the DOMStructure is the first node of the sequence and successive nodes can be accessed by invoking Node.getNextSibling().

If the owner document of the DOMStructure is different than the target document of an XMLSignature, the XMLSignature.sign(XMLSignContext) method imports the node into the target document before generating the signature.
