public interface IMarkupSelectorReferenceResolver
This tuning is performed by means of selector references, which look like %ref and which are passed to the reference resolvers in order to convert them to more specific selectors.
For example, a reference resolver might convert %someref to //p[data-additional="someref"] so that %someref simply becomes an easier way to specify "a paragraph element that has an attribute called 'data-additional' with value 'someref'".
As another example, this %fragment (or simply fragment) syntax is heavily used by Thymeleaf in order to search for elements with a th:fragment or data-th-fragment attribute with a specific "fragment" value.
Note: avoid creating new instances of the same class implementing this interface: better always use just one instance, unless the implementation gives non-deterministic results. The object equality of this class (its equals()) will be used for caching parsed selectors.
String resolveSelectorFromReference(String reference)
Convert the specified value, coming from a selector reference, into a complete markup selector.
For example given a selector reference like %someref, this method will be called with reference value "someref", and the result could be something like //p[data-additional="someref"] in order to make %ref a synonym to "a paragraph element that has an attribute called 'data-additional' with value 'someref'".
reference- the reference value (without the %).
