Class DefaultMetadata

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Metadata

public class DefaultMetadata extends ISOMetadata implements Metadata
Root entity which defines metadata about a resource or resources. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
MD_Metadata   ├─language………………………………………………… Language used for documenting metadata.   ├─character­Set……………………………………… Full name of the character coding standard used for the metadata set.   ├─contact…………………………………………………… Parties responsible for the metadata information.   │   ├─party……………………………………………… Information about the parties.   │   │   └─name……………………………………… Name of the party.   │   └─role………………………………………………… Function performed by the responsible party.   ├─identification­Info……………………… Basic information about the resource(s) to which the metadata applies.   │   ├─citation……………………………………… Citation data for the resource(s).   │   │   ├─title…………………………………… Name by which the cited resource is known.   │   │   └─date……………………………………… Reference date for the cited resource.   │   ├─abstract……………………………………… Brief narrative summary of the content of the resource(s).   │   ├─extent…………………………………………… Bounding polygon, vertical, and temporal extent of the dataset.   │   │   ├─description…………………… The spatial and temporal extent for the referring object.   │   │   ├─geographic­Element…… Geographic component of the extent of the referring object.   │   │   ├─temporal­Element………… Temporal component of the extent of the referring object.   │   │   └─vertical­Element………… Vertical component of the extent of the referring object.   │   └─topic­Category………………………… Main theme(s) of the dataset.   ├─date­Info………………………………………………… Date(s) associated with the metadata.   ├─metadata­Scope…………………………………… The scope or type of resource for which metadata is provided.   │   └─resource­Scope………………………… Resource scope   └─parent­Metadata………………………………… Identification of the parent metadata record.       ├─title……………………………………………… Name by which the cited resource is known.       └─date………………………………………………… Reference date for the cited resource.

Localization

When this object is marshalled as an ISO 19139 compliant XML document, the value given to the set­Language(Locale) method will be used for the localization of International­String and Code­List instances of in this Default­Metadata object and every children, as required by INSPIRE rules. If no language were specified, then the default locale will be the one defined in the XML​.LOCALE marshaller property, if any.

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 Details

    • DefaultMetadata

      public DefaultMetadata()
      Creates an initially empty metadata.
    • DefaultMetadata

      public DefaultMetadata(ResponsibleParty contact, Date dateStamp, Identification identificationInfo)
      Creates a meta data initialized to the specified values.
      Parameters:
      contact - party responsible for the metadata information.
      date­Stamp - date that the metadata was created.
      identification­Info - basic information about the resource to which the metadata applies.
    • DefaultMetadata

      public DefaultMetadata(Metadata 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.
      See Also:
  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultMetadata castOrCopy(Metadata 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 Default­Metadata, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Metadata 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.

      Use case

      This method is useful before XML marshalling or serialization, which may not be supported by all implementations. However the returned metadata is not guaranteed to be editable. For editable metadata, see deep­Copy(Metadata).
      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.
    • deepCopy

      public static DefaultMetadata deepCopy(Metadata object)
      Returns an editable copy of the given metadata. All children are also copied. This method is more expensive than cast­Or­Copy(Metadata) because the copy is unconditional and much deeper. However the result is guaranteed to be editable.

      Use case

      Metadata returned by Resource​.get­Metadata() are typically unmodifiable. This deep­Copy(…) method is useful for completing those metadata with new elements, for example before insertion in a catalog.
      Parameters:
      object - the metadata to copy, or null if none.
      Returns:
      a deep copy of the given object, or null if the argument was null.

    • getMetadataIdentifier

      @UML(identifier="metadataIdentifier", obligation=OPTIONAL, specification=ISO_19115) public Identifier getMetadataIdentifier()
      Returns a unique identifier for this metadata record.
      Note: OGC 07-045 (Catalog Service Specification — ISO metadata application profile) recommends usage of a UUID (Universal Unique Identifier) as specified by IETF to ensure identifier’s uniqueness.
      Returns:
      unique identifier for this metadata record, or null.
      Since:
      0.5

      Returns the unique identifier for this metadata file.
      Specified by:
      get­File­Identifier in interface Metadata
      Returns:
      unique identifier for this metadata file, or null.

    • getLocalesAndCharsets

      @UML(identifier="defaultLocale+otherLocale", obligation=CONDITIONAL, specification=ISO_19115) public Map<Locale,Charset> getLocalesAndCharsets()
      Returns the language(s) and character set(s) used for documenting metadata. The first entry in iteration order is the default language and its character set. All other entries, if any, are alternate language(s) and character set(s) used within the resource.

      Unless another locale has been specified with the XML​.LOCALE property, this Default­Metadata instance and its children will use the first locale returned by this method for marshalling International­String and Code­List instances in ISO 19115-2 compliant XML documents.

      Each (Locale, Charset) entry is equivalent to an instance of ISO 19115 PT_Locale class. The language code and the character set are mandatory elements in ISO standard. Consequently this map should not contain null key or null values, but Apache SIS implementations is tolerant for historical reasons. The same character set may be associated to many languages.

      language(s) and character set(s) used for documenting metadata.
