Enum Constant Detail

CONDITIONAL

public static final Obligation CONDITIONAL
Element is required when a specific condition is met.


OPTIONAL

@UML(identifier="optional",
     obligation=CONDITIONAL,
     specification=ISO_19115)
public static final Obligation OPTIONAL
Element is not required.


MANDATORY

@UML(identifier="mandatory",
     obligation=CONDITIONAL,
     specification=ISO_19115)
public static final Obligation MANDATORY
Element is always required.


FORBIDDEN

@Extension
public static final Obligation FORBIDDEN
The element should always be null. This obligation code is used only when a subinterface overrides an association and force it to a null value. An example is TemporalDatum.getAnchorPoint().

Method Detail

values

public static Obligation[] 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 (Obligation c : Obligation.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static Obligation valueOf(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.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
