Class DefaultResponsibility

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object
    Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class DefaultResponsibility
    extends ISOMetadata
    Information about the party and their role. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    CI_Responsibility   ├─party…………………… Information about the parties.   │   └─name…………… Name of the party.   └─role……………………… Function performed by the responsible party.
    Note on International Standard versions
    This class is derived from a new type defined in the ISO 19115 international standard published in 2014, while GeoAPI 3.0 is based on the version published in 2003. Consequently this implementation class does not yet implement a GeoAPI interface, but is expected to do so after the next GeoAPI releases. When the interface will become available, all references to this implementation class in Apache SIS will be replaced be references to the Responsibility interface.


    • 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.

      • DefaultResponsibility

        public DefaultResponsibility()
        Constructs an initially empty responsible party.
      • DefaultResponsibility

        public DefaultResponsibility​(Role role,
                                     Extent extent,
                                     AbstractParty party)
        Constructs a responsibility initialized to the specified values.
        role - function performed by the responsible party, or null.
        extent - spatial or temporal extent of the role, or null.
        party - information about the party, or null.
      • DefaultResponsibility

        public DefaultResponsibility​(DefaultResponsibility 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.
        object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

      • setRole

        public void setRole​(Role newValue)
        Sets the function performed by the responsible party.
        new­Value - the new role, or null if none.
      • setExtents

        public void setExtents​(Collection<? extends Extent> newValues)
        Sets the spatial and temporal extents of the role.
        new­Values - the new spatial and temporal extents of the role.
      • setParties

        public void setParties​(Collection<? extends AbstractParty> newValues)
        Sets information about the parties.
        Upcoming API change — generalization
        The element type will be changed to the Party interface when GeoAPI will provide it (tentatively in GeoAPI 3.1).
        new­Values - new information about the parties.
