Class DefaultLineage

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

    public class DefaultLineage
    extends ISOMetadata
    implements Lineage
    Information about the events or source data used in constructing the data specified by the scope or lack of knowledge about lineage. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
    LI_Lineage   ├─statement…………………………………………………………… General explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset.   ├─process­Step……………………………………………………… Information about an event in the creation process for the data specified by the scope.   │   └─description…………………………………………… Description of the event, including related parameters or tolerances.   └─source…………………………………………………………………… Information about the source data used in creating the data specified by the scope.       ├─description…………………………………………… Detailed description of the level of the source data.       └─scope…………………………………………………………… Type and / or extent of the source.           ├─level………………………………………………… Hierarchical level of the data specified by the scope.           └─level­Description…………………… Detailed description about the level of the data specified by the scope.               ├─attribute­Instances…… Attribute instances to which the information applies.               ├─attributes………………………… Attributes to which the information applies.               ├─dataset………………………………… Dataset to which the information applies.               ├─feature­Instances………… Feature instances to which the information applies.               ├─features……………………………… Features to which the information applies.               └─other……………………………………… Class of information that does not fall into the other categories.
    At least one of statement, process steps and sources shall be provided.
    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

      • DefaultLineage

        public DefaultLineage()
        Constructs an initially empty lineage.
      • DefaultLineage

        public DefaultLineage​(Lineage 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 DefaultLineage castOrCopy​(Lineage 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 Default­Lineage, then it is returned unchanged.
        • Otherwise a new Default­Lineage 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.
      • getStatement

        public InternationalString getStatement()
        Returns the general explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset. Can be provided only if scope level is DATASET or SERIES.
        Specified by:
        get­Statement in interface Lineage
        Returns:
        explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage, or null.
      • setStatement

        public void setStatement​(InternationalString newValue)
        Sets the general explanation of the data producer’s knowledge about the lineage of a dataset.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new statement.
      • setScope

        public void setScope​(Scope newValue)
        Sets the type of resource and / or extents to which the lineage information applies.
        Parameters:
        new­Value - the new type of resource.

      • setAdditionalDocumentation

        public void setAdditionalDocumentation​(Collection<? extends Citation> newValues)
        Sets additional documentation.
        Parameters:

      • getProcessSteps

        public Collection<ProcessStep> getProcessSteps()
