Method Detail


String getCreator()
Creator of the object. Returns null if nothing appropriate found. For RSS 0.91 and 2.0 feeds: return text under managingEditor element For RSS 1.0 feed: first checks if creator element exists as dublin core metadata, and then falls back to managingEditor element For RSS 2.0 entries: checks the author element for each entry or fallback to creator metadata element from dublin core For Atom 0.3 and 1.0 feeds: checks author element. For Atom 1.0, multiple authors are possible, in which case we return a list of authors delimited by semicolon. Note that the author name itself may contain a semicolon, in which case seperation of author names by splitting at every semicolon will not work.


void setCreator(String creator)
