@TitleProperty(name="name") public class DefaultRangeElementDescription extends ISOMetadata implements RangeElementDescription
Description of specific range elements. The following properties are mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
MI_Range­Element­Description   ├─name……………………………………………… Designation associated with a set of range elements.   ├─definition……………………………… Description of a set of specific range elements.   └─range­Element………………………… Specific range elements, i.e. range elements associated with a name and their definition.

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

    • DefaultRangeElementDescription

      public DefaultRangeElementDescription()
      Constructs an initially empty range element description.
    • DefaultRangeElementDescription

      public DefaultRangeElementDescription(RangeElementDescription 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 DefaultRangeElementDescription castOrCopy(RangeElementDescription 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 Default­Range­Element­Description, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Range­Element­Description 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.
    • getName

      public InternationalString getName()
      Returns the designation associated with a set of range elements.
      Specified by:
      get­Name in interface Range­Element­Description
      Returns:
      designation associated with a set of range elements, or null.
    • setName

      public void setName(InternationalString newValue)
      Sets the designation associated with a set of range elements.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new name value.
    • getDefinition

      public InternationalString getDefinition()
      Returns the description of a set of specific range elements.
      Specified by:
      get­Definition in interface Range­Element­Description
      Returns:
      description of a set of specific range elements, or null.
    • setDefinition

      public void setDefinition(InternationalString newValue)
      Sets the description of a set of specific range elements.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new definition value.
    • getRangeElements

      public Collection<Record> getRangeElements()
      Returns the specific range elements, i.e. range elements associated with a name and their definition.
      Specified by:
      get­Range­Elements in interface Range­Element­Description
      Returns:
      specific range elements.
      TODO:
      implements Record in order to use the annotation.
    • setRangeElements

      public void setRangeElements(Collection<? extends Record> newValues)
      Sets the specific range elements, i.e. range elements associated with a name and their definition.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new range element values.
