Class DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation

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

public class DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation extends ISOMetadata implements MetadataExtensionInformation
Information describing metadata extensions.


  • 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.

    • DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation

      public DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation()
      Construct an initially empty metadata extension information.
    • DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation

      public DefaultMetadataExtensionInformation(MetadataExtensionInformation 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.
      object - the metadata to copy values from, or null if none.

  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      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 Default­Metadata­Extension­Information, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Metadata­Extension­Information 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.
      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.
    • getExtensionOnLineResource

      public OnlineResource getExtensionOnLineResource()
      Information about on-line sources containing the community profile name and the extended metadata elements and information for all new metadata elements.
      Specified by:
      get­Extension­On­Line­Resource in interface Metadata­Extension­Information
      online sources to community profile name and extended metadata elements, or null.
    • setExtensionOnLineResource

      public void setExtensionOnLineResource(OnlineResource newValue)
      Sets information about on-line sources.
      new­Value - the new extension online resource.
    • getExtendedElementInformation

      public Collection<ExtendedElementInformation> getExtendedElementInformation()
      Provides information about a new metadata element, not found in ISO 19115, which is required to describe resource.
      Specified by:
      get­Extended­Element­Information in interface Metadata­Extension­Information
      new metadata elements not found in ISO 19115.
    • setExtendedElementInformation

      public void setExtendedElementInformation(Collection<? extends ExtendedElementInformation> newValues)
      Sets information about a new metadata element.
      new­Values - the new extended element information.
