  • Method Details

    • equalsIgnoreMetadata

      public static boolean equalsIgnoreMetadata(Object object1, Object object2)
      Compares the specified objects for equality, ignoring metadata. If this method returns true, then:
      • If the two given objects are math transforms, then transforming a set of coordinate values using one transform will produce the same results than transforming the same coordinates with the other transform.
      • If the two given objects are Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS), then a call to find­Operation(crs1, crs2, null) will return an identity operation.
      If a more lenient comparison allowing slight differences in numerical values is wanted, then equals­Approximately(Object, Object) can be used instead.

      Implementation note

      This is a convenience method for the following method call:
      return deepEquals(object1, object2, ComparisonMode.IGNORE_METADATA);
      Parameters:
      object1 - the first object to compare (may be null).
      object2 - the second object to compare (may be null).
      Returns:
      true if both objects are equal, ignoring metadata.

    • equalsApproximately

      public static boolean equalsApproximately(Object object1, Object object2)
      Compares the specified objects for equality, ignoring metadata and slight differences in numerical values. If this method returns true, then:
      • If the two given objects are math transforms, then transforming a set of coordinate values using one transform will produce approximately the same results than transforming the same coordinates with the other transform.
      • If the two given objects are Coordinate Reference Systems (CRS), then a call to find­Operation(crs1, crs2, null) will return an operation close to identity.

      Implementation note

      This is a convenience method for the following method call:
      return deepEquals(object1, object2, ComparisonMode.APPROXIMATE);
      Parameters:
      object1 - the first object to compare (may be null).
      object2 - the second object to compare (may be null).
      Returns:
      true if both objects are approximately equal.
      See Also:
    • deepEquals

      public static boolean deepEquals(Object object1, Object object2, ComparisonMode mode)
      Convenience method for testing two objects for equality using the given level of strictness. If at least one of the given objects implement the Lenient­Comparable interface, then the comparison is performed using the Lenient­Comparable​.equals(Object, Comparison­Mode) method. Otherwise this method performs the same work than the Objects​.deep­Equals(Object, Object) convenience method.

      If both arguments are arrays or collections, then the elements are compared recursively.

      Parameters:
      object1 - the first object to compare, or null.
      object2 - the second object to compare, or null.
      mode - the strictness level of the comparison.
      Returns:
      true if both objects are equal for the given level of strictness.

    • deepHashCode

      public static int deepHashCode(Object object)
      Returns a hash code for the specified object, which may be an array. This method returns one of the following values: This method should be invoked only if the object type is declared exactly as Object, not as some subtype like Object[], String or float[]. In the later cases, use the appropriate Arrays method instead.
      Parameters:
      object - the object to compute hash code. May be null.
      Returns:
      the hash code of the given object.
    • deepToString

      public static String deepToString(Object object)
      Returns a string representation of the specified object, which may be an array. This method returns one of the following values: This method should be invoked only if the object type is declared exactly as Object, not as some subtype like Object[], Number or float[]. In the later cases, use the appropriate Arrays method instead.
      Parameters:
      object - the object to format as a string. May be null.
      Returns:
      a string representation of the given object.
