Applying the Visitor Pattern to the DOM API. Abstract: It is well known that traversing the XML DOM is a sometimes difficult and often tedious task, executing code based on data retrieved from the DOM is even more complex. In this project I will attempt to abstract much of the logic for this repetitive task. The implementation of patterns is a technique that is often used to help simplify and intellectually manage projects; the Visitor pattern seemed the most appropriate and useful to help solve this problem. Reflection also plays a key roll, and is used to determine the executed code based on the DOM node values at runtime.
