    • Method Detail

      • isGlobal

        boolean isGlobal()
        Indicates whether this namespace is a "top level" namespace. Global, or top-level namespaces are not contained within another namespace. There is no namespace called "global" or "root" which contains all of the top-level namespaces. Hence, this flag indicates whether the namespace has a parent.
        true if this namespace has no parent.
      • name

        GenericName name()
        Represents the identifier of this namespace. If the global attribute is true, indicating that this is a top level NameSpace, then the name should be a local name. If false, name should be a fully-qualified name where name.scope().isGlobal() == true .
        The identifier of this namespace.
