Class FeatureQuery

Query
FeatureQuery
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable

public class FeatureQuery extends Query implements Cloneable, Serializable
Definition of filtering to apply for fetching a subset of Feature­Set. This query mimics SQL SELECT statements using OGC Filter and Expressions. Information stored in this query can be used directly with Stream API.

Terminology

This class uses relational database terminology:
  • A selection is a filter choosing the features instances to include in the subset. In relational databases, a feature instances are mapped to table rows.
  • A projection (not to be confused with map projection) is the set of feature property to keep. In relational databases, feature properties are mapped to table columns.

Optional values

All aspects of this query are optional and initialized to "none". Unless otherwise specified, all methods accept a null argument or can return a null value, which means "none".

  • Constructor Details

    • FeatureQuery

      public FeatureQuery()
      Creates a new query applying no filter.
  • Method Details

    • setProjection

      public void setProjection(String... properties)
      Sets the properties to retrieve by their names. This convenience method wraps the given names in Value­Reference expressions without alias and delegates to set­Projection(Named­Expression...).
      Specified by:
      set­Projection in class Query
      Parameters:
      properties - properties to retrieve, or null to retrieve all properties.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if a property is duplicated.
    • setProjection

      @SafeVarargs public final void setProjection(Expression<? super AbstractFeature,?>... properties)
      Sets the properties to retrieve, or null if all properties shall be included in the query. This convenience method wraps the given expression in Feature­Query​.Named­Expressions without alias and delegates to set­Projection(Named­Expression...).
      Parameters:
      properties - properties to retrieve, or null to retrieve all properties.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if a property is duplicated.
    • setProjection

      public void setProjection(FeatureQuery.NamedExpression... properties)
      Sets the properties to retrieve, or null if all properties shall be included in the query. A query column may use a simple or complex expression and an alias to create a new type of property in the returned features.

      This is equivalent to the column names in the SELECT clause of a SQL statement. Subset of columns is called projection in relational database terminology.

      Parameters:
      properties - properties to retrieve, or null to retrieve all properties.
      Throws:
      Illegal­Argument­Exception - if a property or an alias is duplicated.
    • getProjection

      public FeatureQuery.NamedExpression[] getProjection()
      Returns the properties to retrieve, or null if all properties shall be included in the query. This is the expressions specified in the last call to set­Projection(Named­Expression[]). The default value is null.
      Returns:
      properties to retrieve, or null to retrieve all feature properties.
    • setSelection

      public void setSelection(Envelope domain)
      Sets the approximate area of feature instances to include in the subset. This convenience method creates a filter that checks if the bounding box of the feature's "sis:geometry" property interacts with the given envelope.
      Specified by:
      set­Selection in class Query
      Parameters:
      domain - the approximate area of interest, or null if none.
    • setSelection

      public void setSelection(Filter<? super AbstractFeature> selection)
      Sets a filter for trimming feature instances. Features that do not pass the filter are discarded. Discarded features are not counted for the query limit.
      Parameters:
      selection - the filter, or null if none.
    • getSelection

      public Filter<? super AbstractFeature> getSelection()
      Returns the filter for trimming feature instances. This is the value specified in the last call to set­Selection(Filter). The default value is null, which means that no filtering is applied.
      Returns:
      the filter, or null if none.
    • setOffset

      public void setOffset(long skip)
      Sets the number of feature instances to skip from the beginning. Offset and limit are often combined to obtain paging. The offset can not be negative.

      Note that setting this property can be costly on parallelized streams. See Stream​.skip(long) for more information.

      Parameters:
      skip - the number of feature instances to skip from the beginning.
    • getOffset

      public long getOffset()
      Returns the number of feature instances to skip from the beginning. This is the value specified in the last call to set­Offset(long). The default value is zero, which means that no features are skipped.
      Returns:
      the number of feature instances to skip from the beginning.
    • setUnlimited

      public void setUnlimited()
      Removes any limit defined by set­Limit(long).
    • setLimit

      public void setLimit(long limit)
      Set the maximum number of feature instances contained in the Feature­Set. Offset and limit are often combined to obtain paging.

      Note that setting this property can be costly on parallelized streams. See Stream​.limit(long) for more information.

      Parameters:
      limit - maximum number of feature instances contained in the Feature­Set.
    • getLimit

      public OptionalLong getLimit()
      Returns the maximum number of feature instances contained in the Feature­Set. This is the value specified in the last call to set­Limit(long).
      Returns:
      maximum number of feature instances contained in the Feature­Set, or empty if none.
    • setLinearResolution

      public void setLinearResolution(Quantity<Length> linearResolution)
      Sets the desired spatial resolution of geometries. This property is an optional hint; resources may ignore it.
      Parameters:
      linear­Resolution - desired spatial resolution, or null for full resolution.
    • getLinearResolution

      public Quantity<Length> getLinearResolution()
      Returns the desired spatial resolution of geometries. A null value means that data are queried at their full resolution.
      Returns:
      desired spatial resolution, or null for full resolution.
    • clone

      public FeatureQuery clone()
      Returns a clone of this query.
      Overrides:
      clone in class Object
      Returns:
      a clone of this query.
    • hashCode

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

      public boolean equals(Object obj)
      Compares this query with the given object for equality.
      Overrides:
      equals in class Object
      Parameters:
      obj - the object to compare with this query.
      Returns:
      whether the two objects are equal.
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Returns a textual representation of this query for debugging purposes. The default implementation returns a string that looks like an SQL Select query.
      Overrides:
      to­String in class Object
      Returns:
      textual representation of this query.
