Class AbstractParty

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

@TitleProperty(name="name") @UML(identifier="CI_Party", specification=ISO_19115) public class AbstractParty extends ISOMetadata
Information about the individual and / or organization of the party. The following property is conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
CI_Party   └─name…… Name of the 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 Party 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.
