Class DefaultCitationDate

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

    @TitleProperty(name="date")
    public class DefaultCitationDate
    extends ISOMetadata
    implements CitationDate
    Reference date and event used to describe it. The following properties are mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    CI_Date   ├─date……………… Reference date for the cited resource.   └─date­Type…… Event used for reference date.

    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.

    • Constructor Detail

      • DefaultCitationDate

        public DefaultCitationDate()
        Constructs an initially empty citation date.
      • DefaultCitationDate

        public DefaultCitationDate​(Date date,
                                   DateType dateType)
        Constructs a citation date initialized to the given date.
        Parameters:
        date - the reference date for the cited resource.
        date­Type - the event used for reference date.
      • DefaultCitationDate

        public DefaultCitationDate​(CitationDate 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.
        Parameters:
        object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • Method Detail

      • castOrCopy

        public static DefaultCitationDate castOrCopy​(CitationDate 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 Default­Citation­Date, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Default­Citation­Date 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.
      • getDate

        public Date getDate()
        Returns the reference date for the cited resource.
        Specified by:
        get­Date in interface Citation­Date
        Returns:
        reference date for the cited resource, or null.
      • setDate

        public void setDate​(Date newValue)
        Sets the reference date for the cited resource.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new date.
      • getDateType

        public DateType getDateType()
        Returns the event used for reference date.
        Specified by:
        get­Date­Type in interface Citation­Date
        Returns:
        event used for reference date, or null.
      • setDateType

        public void setDateType​(DateType newValue)
        Sets the event used for reference date.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new event.
