Interface Optimization.OnFilter<R>

Type Parameters:
R - the type of resources to filter.
All Superinterfaces:
Filter<R>, Predicate<R>
Enclosing class:
Optimization

public static interface Optimization.OnFilter<R> extends Filter<R>
Filter that can be optimized. Each filter implementation knows which rules can be applied. For that reason, the optimization algorithms are kept in each implementation class. This interface allows Optimization to invoke that code.

Implementations need to override only one of the 2 methods defined in this interface.

  • Method Details

    • optimize

      default Filter<? super R> optimize(Optimization optimization)
      Tries to optimize this filter. The default implementation performs the following steps:
      • If all expressions are literals, evaluate this filter immediately.
      • Otherwise if at least one child expression can be optimized, recreate the filter.
      • Otherwise returns this.
      Parameters:
      optimization - the simplifications or optimizations to apply on this filter.
      Returns:
      the simplified or optimized filter, or this if no optimization has been applied.
    • recreate

      default Filter<R> recreate(Expression<? super R,?>[] effective)
      Creates a new filter of the same type and parameters than this filter, except for the expressions. The expressions given to this method shall be equivalent to the expressions used by this filter, potentially more efficient.

      This method is used by the default implementation of optimize(Optimization) and can be ignored if above method is overridden.

      Parameters:
      effective - the expressions to use as a replacement of this filter expressions.
      Returns:
      the new filter, or this if unsupported.
    • and

      default Predicate<R> and(Predicate<? super R> other)
      Returns the AND logical operation between this filter and the given predicate. If the given predicate is an instance of Filter, then the returned predicate is an instance of Optimization​.On­Filter.
      Specified by:
      and in interface Predicate<R>
      Parameters:
      other - the other predicate.
      Returns:
      the AND logical operation between this filter and the given predicate.
      See Also:
    • or

      default Predicate<R> or(Predicate<? super R> other)
      Returns the OR logical operation between this filter and the given predicate. If the given predicate is an instance of Filter, then the returned predicate is an instance of Optimization​.On­Filter.
      Specified by:
      or in interface Predicate<R>
      Parameters:
      other - the other predicate.
      Returns:
      the OR logical operation between this filter and the given predicate.
      See Also:
    • negate

      default Predicate<R> negate()
      Returns the logical negation of this filter. The returned predicate is an instance of Optimization​.On­Filter.
      Specified by:
      negate in interface Predicate<R>
      Returns:
      the logical negation of this filter.
