Class AbstractElement

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Element
Direct Known Subclasses:
Abstract­Completeness, Abstract­Logical­Consistency, Abstract­Positional­Accuracy, Abstract­Temporal­Accuracy, Abstract­Thematic­Accuracy, Default­Usability

public class AbstractElement extends ISOMetadata implements Element
Type of test applied to the data specified by a data quality scope. The following property is mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
DQ_Element   └─result…………… Value obtained from applying a data quality measure.

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.
Since:
0.3

  • Constructor Details

    • AbstractElement

      public AbstractElement()
      Constructs an initially empty element.
    • AbstractElement

      public AbstractElement(Result result)
      Creates an element initialized to the given result.
      Parameters:
      result - the value obtained from applying a data quality measure against a specified acceptable conformance quality level.
    • AbstractElement

      public AbstractElement(Element 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 AbstractElement castOrCopy(Element 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 an instance of Positional­Accuracy, Temporal­Accuracy, Thematic­Accuracy, Logical­Consistency, Completeness or Usability, then this method delegates to the cast­Or­Copy(…) method of the corresponding SIS subclass. Note that if the given object implements more than one of the above-cited interfaces, then the cast­Or­Copy(…) method to be used is unspecified.
      • Otherwise if the given object is already an instance of Abstract­Element, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Abstract­Element 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.
    • getNamesOfMeasure

      public Collection<InternationalString> getNamesOfMeasure()
      Returns the name of the test applied to the data.
      Specified by:
      get­Names­Of­Measure in interface Element
      Returns:
      name of the test applied to the data.
      See Also:
    • setNamesOfMeasure

      public void setNamesOfMeasure(Collection<? extends InternationalString> newValues)
      Sets the name of the test applied to the data.
      Parameters:
      new­Values - the new name of measures.
    • getMeasureIdentification

      public Identifier getMeasureIdentification()
      Returns the code identifying a registered standard procedure, or null if none.
      Specified by:
      get­Measure­Identification in interface Element
      Returns:
      code identifying a registered standard procedure, or null.
      See Also:
    • setMeasureIdentification

      public void setMeasureIdentification(Identifier newValue)
      Sets the code identifying a registered standard procedure.
      Parameters:
      new­Value - the new measure identification.
    • getMeasureDescription

      public InternationalString getMeasureDescription()
      Returns the description of the measure being determined.
      Specified by:
      get­Measure­Description in interface Element
      Returns:
