Class DefaultFormula

Object
FormattableObject
DefaultFormula
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Formula

public class DefaultFormula extends FormattableObject implements Formula, Serializable
Specification of the coordinate operation method formula. A formula may be given textually, or may be a reference to a publication.

Formula is for human reading. The object that actually does the work of applying formula to coordinate values is Math­Transform.

  • Constructor Details

    • DefaultFormula

      public DefaultFormula(CharSequence formula)
      Creates a new formula from the given string.
      Parameters:
      formula - the formula.
    • DefaultFormula

      public DefaultFormula(Citation citation)
      Creates a new formula from the given citation.
      Parameters:
      citation - the citation.
    • DefaultFormula

      protected DefaultFormula(Formula formula)
      Creates a new formula with the same values than the specified one. This copy constructor provides a way to convert an arbitrary implementation into a SIS one or a user-defined one (as a subclass), usually in order to leverage some implementation-specific API.

      This constructor performs a shallow copy, i.e. the properties are not cloned.

      Parameters:
      formula - the formula to copy.

  • Method Details

    • castOrCopy

      public static DefaultFormula castOrCopy(Formula object)
      Returns a SIS formula implementation with the same values than the given arbitrary implementation. If the given object is null, then this method returns null. Otherwise if the given object is already a SIS implementation, then the given object is returned unchanged. Otherwise a new SIS implementation is created and initialized to the attribute values of the given object.
      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.
    • getFormula

      public InternationalString getFormula()
      Returns the formula(s) or procedure used by the operation method, or null if none.
      Specified by:
      get­Formula in interface Formula
    • getCitation

      public Citation getCitation()
      Returns the reference to a publication giving the formula(s) or procedure used by the coordinate operation method, or null if none.
      Specified by:
      get­Citation in interface Formula
    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      Returns a hash code value for this formula.
      Overrides:
      hash­Code in class Object
    • equals

      public boolean equals(Object object)
      Compares this formula with the given object for equality.
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      object - the object to compare with this formula.
      Returns:
      true if both objects are equal.
    • formatTo

      protected String formatTo(Formatter formatter)
      Formats this formula as a pseudo-Well Known Text element.
      Compatibility note: ISO 19162 does not define a WKT representation for Formula objects. The text formatted by this method is SIS-specific and causes the text to be flagged as invalid WKT. The WKT content of this element may change in any future SIS version.
      Specified by:
      format­To in class Formattable­Object
      Parameters:
      formatter - the formatter where to format the inner content of this WKT element.
      Returns:
      "Formula".
