Class DefaultAggregateInformation

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

    public class DefaultAggregateInformation
    extends DefaultAssociatedResource
    implements AggregateInformation
    Associated resource information. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    MD_Aggregate­Information   ├─association­Type………… Type of relation between the resources.   ├─metadata­Reference…… Reference to the metadata of the associated resource.   │   ├─title………………………… Name by which the cited resource is known.   │   └─date…………………………… Reference date for the cited resource.   └─name……………………………………… Citation information about the associated resource.
    According ISO 19115, at least one of name and metadata reference shall be provided.
    Upcoming API change — renaming
    As of ISO 19115:2014, Aggregate­Information has been renamed Associated­Resource. This class will be replaced by Default­Associated­Resource when GeoAPI will provide the Associated­Resource interface (tentatively in GeoAPI 3.1 or 4.0).
    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.
    Since:
    0.3

    • Constructor Detail

      • DefaultAggregateInformation

        public DefaultAggregateInformation()
        Constructs an initially empty Aggregate dataset information.
      • DefaultAggregateInformation

        public DefaultAggregateInformation​(AggregateInformation 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 DefaultAggregateInformation castOrCopy​(AggregateInformation 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 Default­Aggregate­Information, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Default­Aggregate­Information 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.
      • setAggregateDataSetIdentifier

        @Deprecated
        public void setAggregateDataSetIdentifier​(Identifier newValue)
        Deprecated.
        As of ISO 19115:2014, replaced by an identifier of get­Aggregate­Data­Set­Name().
        Sets the identification information about aggregate dataset.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new identifier.
