    • Method Detail

      • createDataStore

        public DataStore createDataStore​(Map<String,​?> params)
                                  throws IOException
        Description copied from interface: DataStoreFactorySpi
        Construct a live data source using the params specifed.

        You can think of this as setting up a connection to the back end data source.

        Magic Params: the following params are magic and are honoured by convention by the GeoServer and uDig application.

        • "user": is taken to be the user name
        • "passwd": is taken to be the password
        • "namespace": is taken to be the namespace prefix (and will be kept in sync with GeoServer namespace management.
        When we eventually move over to the use of OpperationalParam we will have to find someway to codify this convention.

        params - The full set of information needed to construct a live data store. Typical key values for the map include: url - location of a resource, used by file reading datasources. dbtype - the type of the database to connect to, e.g. postgis, mysql
        The created DataStore, this may be null if the required resource was not found or if insufficent parameters were given. Note that canProcess() should have returned false if the problem is to do with insuficent parameters.
        IOException - if there were any problems setting up (creating or connecting) the datasource.
      • getDisplayName

        public String getDisplayName()
        Description copied from interface: DataAccessFactory
        Name suitable for display to end user.

        A non localized display name for this data store type.

        Specified by:
        getDisplayName in interface DataAccessFactory
        A short name suitable for display in a user interface.
      • getDescription

        public String getDescription()
        Description copied from interface: DataAccessFactory
        Describe the nature of the datasource constructed by this factory.

        A non localized description of this data store type.

        Specified by:
        getDescription in interface DataAccessFactory
        A human readable description that is suitable for inclusion in a list of available datasources.
      • getParametersInfo

        public DataAccessFactory.Param[] getParametersInfo()
        Description copied from interface: DataAccessFactory
        MetaData about the required Parameters (for createDataStore).

        Interpretation of FeatureDescriptor values:

        • getDisplayName(): Gets the localized display name of this feature.
        • getName(): Gets the programmatic name of this feature (used as the key in params)
        • getShortDescription(): Gets the short description of this feature.

        This should be the same as:

         Object params = factory.getParameters();
         BeanInfo info = getBeanInfo( params );
         return info.getPropertyDescriptors();
        Specified by:
        getParametersInfo in interface DataAccessFactory
        Param array describing the Map for createDataStore

      • isAvailable

        public boolean isAvailable()
        Test to see if this datastore is available, if it has all the appropriate libraries to construct a datastore. This datastore just returns true for now. This method is used for gui apps, so as to not advertise data store capabilities they don't actually have.
        Specified by:
        isAvailable in interface DataAccessFactory
        true if and only if this factory is available to create DataStores.
        true property datastore is always available

        params - Connection parameters
        true for connection parameters indicating a directory or property file
      • getImplementationHints

        public Map<RenderingHints.Key,​?> getImplementationHints()
        No implementation hints are provided at this time.
        Specified by:
        getImplementationHints in interface Factory
        The map of hints, or an {@linkplain java.util.Collections.emptyMap() empty map} if none.
