Class DefaultExtendedElementInformation

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Extended­Element­Information

    @TitleProperty(name="name")
    public class DefaultExtendedElementInformation
    extends ISOMetadata
    implements ExtendedElementInformation
    New metadata element, not found in ISO 19115, which is required to describe geographic data. Metadata elements are contained in a metadata extension information. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    MD_Extended­Element­Information   ├─name……………………………………………………… Name of the extended metadata element.   ├─definition……………………………………… Definition of the extended element.   ├─obligation……………………………………… Obligation of the extended element.   ├─condition………………………………………… Condition under which the extended element is mandatory.   ├─data­Type…………………………………………… Code which identifies the kind of value provided in the extended element.   ├─maximum­Occurrence…………………… Maximum occurrence of the extended element.   ├─domain­Value…………………………………… Valid values that can be assigned to the extended element.   ├─parent­Entity………………………………… Name of the metadata entity(s) under which this extended metadata element may appear.   ├─rule……………………………………………………… Specifies how the extended element relates to other existing elements and entities.   └─source………………………………………………… Name of the person or organisation creating the extended element.       ├─party………………………………………… Information about the parties.       │   └─name………………………………… Name of the party.       └─role…………………………………………… Function performed by the responsible party.

    Limitations:

    • Instances of this class are not synchronized for multi-threading. Synchronization, if needed, is caller's responsibility.
    • Serialized objects of this class are not guaranteed to be compatible with future Apache SIS releases. Serialization support is appropriate for short term storage or RMI between applications running the same version of Apache SIS. For long term storage, use XML instead.

      • DefaultExtendedElementInformation

        public DefaultExtendedElementInformation​(ExtendedElementInformation object)
        Constructs a new instance initialized with the values from the specified metadata object. This is a shallow copy constructor, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
        Note on properties validation: This constructor does not verify the property values of the given metadata (e.g. whether it contains unexpected negative values). This is because invalid metadata exist in practice, and verifying their validity in this copy constructor is often too late. Note that this is not the only hole, as invalid metadata instances can also be obtained by unmarshalling an invalid XML document.
        Parameters:
        object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • Method Detail

      • castOrCopy

        public static DefaultExtendedElementInformation castOrCopy​(ExtendedElementInformation object)
        Returns a SIS metadata implementation with the values of the given arbitrary implementation. This method performs the first applicable action in the following choices:
        • If the given object is null, then this method returns null.
        • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Default­Extended­Element­Information, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Default­Extended­Element­Information instance is created using the copy constructor and returned. Note that this is a shallow copy operation, since the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
        Parameters:
        object - the object to get as a SIS implementation, or null if none.
        Returns:
        a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the given object itself), or null if the argument was null.
