* This interface defines methods that are called by Saxon during the execution of
* a stylesheet, if tracing is switched on. Tracing can be switched on by nominating
* an implementation of this class using the TRACE_LISTENER feature of the TransformerFactory,
* or using the addTraceListener() method of the Controller, which is Saxon's implementation
* of tyhe JAXP javax.xml.transform.Transformer interface.

public interface TraceListener extends EventListener {

  * Method called at the start of execution, that is, when the run-time transformation starts

  public void open();

  * Method called at the end of execution, that is, when the run-time execution ends

  public void close();

   * Method that is called when an instruction in the stylesheet gets processed.
   * @param instruction gives information about the instruction being
   * executed, and about the context in which it is executed. This object is mutable,
   * so if information from the InstructionInfo is to be retained, it must be copied.

  public void enter(InstructionInfo instruction, XPathContext context);

   * Method that is called after processing an instruction of the stylesheet,
   * that is, after any child instructions have been processed.
   * @param instruction gives the same information that was supplied to the
   * enter method, though it is not necessarily the same object. Note that the
   * line number of the instruction is that of the start tag in the source stylesheet,
   * not the line number of the end tag.

  public void leave(InstructionInfo instruction);

   * Method that is called by an instruction that changes the current item
   * in the source document: that is, xsl:for-each, xsl:apply-templates, xsl:for-each-group.
   * The method is called after the enter method for the relevant instruction, and is called
   * once for each item processed.
   * @param currentItem the new current item. Item objects are not mutable; it is safe to retain
   * a reference to the Item for later use.

  public void startCurrentItem(Item currentItem);

   * Method that is called when an instruction has finished processing a new current item
   * and is ready to select a new current item or revert to the previous current item.
   * The method will be called before the leave() method for the instruction that made this
   * item current.
   * @param currentItem the item that was current, whose processing is now complete. This will represent
   * the same underlying item as the corresponding startCurrentItem() call, though it will
   * not necessarily be the same actual object.

  public void endCurrentItem(Item currentItem);
