Class DefaultTemporalValidity

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Emptiable, Lenient­Comparable, Identified­Object, Element, Temporal­Accuracy, Temporal­Validity

public class DefaultTemporalValidity extends AbstractTemporalAccuracy implements TemporalValidity
Validity of data specified by the scope with respect to time. The following property is mandatory in a well-formed metadata according ISO 19115:
DQ_Temporal­Validity   └─result…………… Value obtained from applying a data quality measure.


  • 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.

    • DefaultTemporalValidity

      public DefaultTemporalValidity()
      Constructs an initially empty temporal validity.
    • DefaultTemporalValidity

      public DefaultTemporalValidity(TemporalValidity 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.

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultTemporalValidity castOrCopy(TemporalValidity 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 Default­Temporal­Validity, then it is returned unchanged.
      • Otherwise a new Default­Temporal­Validity 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.
