Class AbstractTemporalQuality

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Element, Temporal­Accuracy
Direct Known Subclasses:
Abstract­Temporal­Accuracy, Default­Accuracy­Of­ATime­Measurement, Default­Temporal­Consistency, Default­Temporal­Validity

@UML(identifier="DQ_TemporalQuality", specification=UNSPECIFIED) public class AbstractTemporalQuality extends AbstractElement implements TemporalAccuracy
Accuracy of the temporal attributes and temporal relationships of features. The following property is mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19157:
DQ_Temporal­Quality   └─result…………… Value obtained from applying a data quality measure.


  • 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.

    • AbstractTemporalQuality

      public AbstractTemporalQuality()
      Constructs an initially empty temporal accuracy.
    • AbstractTemporalQuality

      public AbstractTemporalQuality(TemporalAccuracy object)
      Constructs a new instance initialized with the values from the specified metadata object. This is a shallow copy constructor, because the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
      object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

    • castOrCopy

      public static AbstractTemporalQuality castOrCopy(TemporalAccuracy 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 an instance of Accuracy­Of­ATime­Measurement, Temporal­Consistency or Temporal­Validity, then this method delegates to the cast­Or­Copy(…) method of the corresponding SIS subclass. Note that if the given object implements more than one of the above-cited interfaces, then the cast­Or­Copy(…) method to be used is unspecified.
      • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Abstract­Temporal­Quality, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Abstract­Temporal­Quality instance is created using the copy constructor and returned. Note that this is a shallow copy operation, because the other metadata contained in the given object are not recursively copied.
      object - the object to get as a SIS implementation, or null if none.
      a SIS implementation containing the values of the given object (may be the given object itself), or null if the argument was null.
    • getStandard

      public MetadataStandard getStandard()
      Returns the metadata standard, which is ISO 19157.
      get­Standard in class ISOMetadata
      the metadata standard, which is ISO 19157.
