Class DefaultInstrument

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

public class DefaultInstrument extends ISOMetadata implements Instrument
Designations for the measuring instruments. The following properties are mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
MI_Instrument   ├─identifier…… Unique identification of the instrument.   │   └─code………… Alphanumeric value identifying an instance in the namespace.   └─type…………………… Name of the type of instrument.

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

    • DefaultInstrument

      public DefaultInstrument()
      Constructs an initially empty instrument.
    • DefaultInstrument

      public DefaultInstrument(Instrument 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.

  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultInstrument castOrCopy(Instrument 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 Default­Instrument, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Instrument 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.
      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.
    • getCitations

      public Collection<Citation> getCitations()
      Returns the complete citation of the instrument.
      Specified by:
      get­Citations in interface Instrument
      Returns:
      complete citation of the instrument.
    • setCitations

      public void setCitations(Collection<? extends Citation> newValues)
      Sets the complete citation of the instrument.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new citation values.
    • getIdentifier

      public Identifier getIdentifier()
      Returns the unique identification of the instrument.
      Specified by:
      get­Identifier in interface Instrument
      Overrides:
      get­Identifier in class ISOMetadata
      Returns:
      unique identification of the instrument, or null.
    • setIdentifier

      public void setIdentifier(Identifier newValue)
      Sets the unique identification of the instrument.
      Overrides:
      set­Identifier in class ISOMetadata
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new identifier value.
    • getType

      public InternationalString getType()
      Returns the name of the type of instrument. Examples: framing, line-scan, push-broom, pan-frame.
      Specified by:
      get­Type in interface Instrument
      Returns:
      type of instrument, or null.
    • setType

      public void setType(InternationalString newValue)
      Sets the name of the type of instrument. Examples: framing, line-scan, push-broom, pan-frame.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new type value.
    • getDescription

      public InternationalString getDescription()
      Returns the textual description of the instrument. null if unspecified.
      Specified by:
      get­Description in interface Instrument
      Returns:
      textual description, or null.
    • setDescription

      public void setDescription(InternationalString newValue)
      Sets the textual description of the instrument.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new description value.
    • getMountedOn

      public Platform getMountedOn()
      Returns the platform on which the instrument is mounted. null if unspecified.
      Specified by:
      get­Mounted­On in interface Instrument
      Returns:
      platform on which the instrument is mounted, or null.
    • setMountedOn

      public void setMountedOn(Platform newValue)
      Sets the platform on which the instrument is mounted.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new platform value.
