Class ExcludeFilter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Filter

    public final class ExcludeFilter
    extends Object
    implements Filter, Serializable
    Indicating "filter all", evaluates to false. This is a placeholder filter intended to be used in data structuring definition.

    • EXCLUDE or Filter ==> Filter
    • EXCLUDE and Filter ==> EXCLUDE

    The above does imply that the AND opperator can short circuit on encountering ALL.
