Class DefaultLegalConstraints

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Constraints, Legal­Constraints

public class DefaultLegalConstraints extends DefaultConstraints implements LegalConstraints
Restrictions and legal prerequisites for accessing and using the resource. The following properties are mandatory or conditional (i.e. mandatory under some circumstances) in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
MD_Legal­Constraints   ├─access­Constraints…… Access constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property.   ├─use­Constraints…………… Constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property.   └─other­Constraints……… Other restrictions and legal prerequisites for accessing and using the resource.
The other constraints collection shall be non-empty if access constraints and/or use constraints elements have a value of Restriction​.OTHER_RESTRICTIONS.

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

    • DefaultLegalConstraints

      public DefaultLegalConstraints()
      Constructs an initially empty constraints.
    • DefaultLegalConstraints

      public DefaultLegalConstraints(CharSequence useLimitation)
      Constructs a new constraints with the given use limitation.
      Parameters:
      use­Limitation - the use limitation, or null if none.
    • DefaultLegalConstraints

      public DefaultLegalConstraints(LegalConstraints 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 DefaultLegalConstraints castOrCopy(LegalConstraints 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 Default­Legal­Constraints, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Legal­Constraints 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.
    • getAccessConstraints

      public Collection<Restriction> getAccessConstraints()
      Returns the access constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property, and any special restrictions or limitations on obtaining the resource.
      Specified by:
      get­Access­Constraints in interface Legal­Constraints
      Returns:
      access constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property.
    • setAccessConstraints

      public void setAccessConstraints(Collection<? extends Restriction> newValues)
      Sets the access constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property, and any special restrictions or limitations on obtaining the resource.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new access constraints.
    • getUseConstraints

      public Collection<Restriction> getUseConstraints()
      Returns the constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property, and any special restrictions or limitations or warnings on using the resource.
      Specified by:
      get­Use­Constraints in interface Legal­Constraints
      Returns:
      constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property.
    • setUseConstraints

      public void setUseConstraints(Collection<? extends Restriction> newValues)
      Sets the constraints applied to assure the protection of privacy or intellectual property, and any special restrictions or limitations or warnings on using the resource.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new use constraints.
    • getOtherConstraints

      public Collection<InternationalString> getOtherConstraints()
      Returns the other restrictions and legal prerequisites for accessing and using the resource. Shall be a non-empty value only if access constraints or use constraints declares other restrictions.
      Specified by:
      get­Other­Constraints in interface Legal­Constraints
      Returns:
      other restrictions and legal prerequisites for accessing and using the resource.
    • setOtherConstraints

      public void setOtherConstraints(Collection<? extends InternationalString> newValues)
      Sets the other restrictions and legal prerequisites for accessing and using the resource.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - Other constraints.
