Enum VariableDeclaredType

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable, java.lang.Comparable<VariableDeclaredType>

    public enum VariableDeclaredType
    extends java.lang.Enum<VariableDeclaredType>
    This enum represents a declared type on a variable which is desired by the user. It is used for searching for variables that have that type set. It is not used for any validation if the actual configuration on the variable (like mapping to entity, fields or schema types) match the declared type. We can consider it more like an additional naming label (together with Unit and Description). It was introduced to allow more backwards compatibility with the old CALS API.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static VariableDeclaredType[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (VariableDeclaredType c : VariableDeclaredType.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static VariableDeclaredType valueOf​(java.lang.String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null
