Enum Class ModifiableMetadata.State

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Modifiable­Metadata​.State>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum ModifiableMetadata.State extends Enum<ModifiableMetadata.State>
Whether the metadata is still editable or has been made final. New Modifiable­Metadata instances are initially EDITABLE and can be made FINAL after construction by a call to Modifiable­Metadata​.transition­To(State).

Future evolution

More states may be added in future Apache SIS versions. On possible candidate is STAGED. See SIS-81.

  • Enum Constant Details


      public static final ModifiableMetadata.State EDITABLE
      The metadata is modifiable. This is the default state when new Modifiable­Metadata instances are created. Note that a modifiable metadata instance does not imply that all properties contained in that instance are also editable.

      public static final ModifiableMetadata.State COMPLETABLE
      The metadata allows missing values to be set, but does not allow existing values to be modified. This state is not appendable, i.e. it does not allow adding elements in a collection.
    • FINAL

      public static final ModifiableMetadata.State FINAL
      The metadata is unmodifiable. When a metadata is final, it cannot be moved back to an editable state (but it is still possible to create a modifiable copy with Metadata­Copier). Invoking any setter method on an unmodifiable metadata cause an Unmodifiable­Metadata­Exception to be thrown.
