,DirectedBreadthFirstIterator
public class BreadthFirstIterator extends SourceGraphIterator
Iterates over the nodes of a graph in a Breadth First Search pattern starting from a specified node. The following illustrates the iteration order.
The iteration operates by maintaining a node queue of active nodes. An active node is a node that will returned at a later stage of the iteration. The node queue for a Breadth First iteration is implemented as a First In First Out queue. A node is placed in the the node queue if it has not been visited, and it is adjacent to a a node that has been visited. The node queue intially contains only the source node of the traversal.

Method Detail

setSource
public void setSource(Graphable source)
Sets the source of the traversal and places it in the node queue. The first call to this method will result in the internal node queue being built. Subsequent calls to the method clear the node queue and reset the iteration. Overrides:
setSource
in classSourceGraphIterator
 Parameters:
source
 The source of the iteration. See Also:
SourceGraphIterator.setSource(Graphable)

init
public void init(Graph graph, GraphTraversal traversal)
Does nothing. Parameters:
graph
 The graph being whose components are being iterated over. See Also:
org.geotools.graph.traverse.GraphIterator#init(Graph)

next
public Graphable next(GraphTraversal traversal)
Returns the next node from the node queue that has not yet been visited. It is possible for the node queue to contain duplicate entries. To prevent the iteration returning the same node multiple times, the visited flag is checked on nodes coming out of the queue. If the flag is set, the node is ignored, not returned, and the next node in the queue is returned. This is however transparent to the caller. Returns:
 The next component in the iteration, or null if iteration is complete.
 See Also:
org.geotools.graph.traverse.GraphIterator#next()

cont
public void cont(Graphable current, GraphTraversal traversal)
Looks for nodes adjacent to the current node to place into the node queue. An adjacent node is only placed into the node queue if its visited flag is unset. Parameters:
current
 The current component of the traversal. See Also:
org.geotools.graph.traverse.GraphIterator#cont(Graphable)

killBranch
public void killBranch(Graphable current, GraphTraversal traversal)
Kills the current branch by not looking for any adjacent nodes to place into the node queue. Parameters:
current
 The current component of the traversal. See Also:
org.geotools.graph.traverse.GraphIterator#killBranch(Graphable)

buildQueue
protected Queue<Graphable> buildQueue(Graph graph)
Builds the node queue for the iteration. Parameters:
graph
 The graph being iterated over. Returns:
 A First In First Out queue.
