Package Summary  Overview Summary

class:Name [NONE]

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Cloneable, Comparable<Object>, Serializable
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    CompositeName, CompoundName, LdapName

    public interface Name
    extends Cloneable, Serializable, Comparable<Object>
    The Name interface represents a generic name -- an ordered sequence of components. It can be a composite name (names that span multiple namespaces), or a compound name (names that are used within individual hierarchical naming systems).

    There can be different implementations of Name; for example, composite names, URLs, or namespace-specific compound names.

    The components of a name are numbered. The indexes of a name with N components range from 0 up to, but not including, N. This range may be written as [0,N). The most significant component is at index 0. An empty name has no components.

    None of the methods in this interface accept null as a valid value for a parameter that is a name or a name component. Likewise, methods that return a name or name component never return null.

    An instance of a Name may not be synchronized against concurrent multithreaded access if that access is not read-only.

method:clone() [NONE]

  • clone

    Object clone()
    Generates a new copy of this name. Subsequent changes to the components of this name will not affect the new copy, and vice versa.
    Returns:
    a copy of this name
    See Also:
    Object.clone()

method:compareTo(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • compareTo

    int compareTo​(Object obj)
    Compares this name with another name for order. Returns a negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as this name is less than, equal to, or greater than the given name.

    As with Object.equals(), the notion of ordering for names depends on the class that implements this interface. For example, the ordering may be based on lexicographical ordering of the name components. Specific attributes of the name, such as how it treats case, may affect the ordering. In general, two names of different classes may not be compared.

    Specified by:
    compareTo in interface Comparable<Object>
    Parameters:
    obj - the non-null object to compare against.
    Returns:
    a negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as this name is less than, equal to, or greater than the given name
    Throws:
    ClassCastException - if obj is not a Name of a type that may be compared with this name
    See Also:
    Comparable.compareTo(Object)

method:size() [NONE]

  • size

    int size()
    Returns the number of components in this name.
    Returns:
    the number of components in this name

method:isEmpty() [NONE]

  • isEmpty

    boolean isEmpty()
    Determines whether this name is empty. An empty name is one with zero components.
    Returns:
    true if this name is empty, false otherwise

method:getAll() [NONE]

  • getAll

    Enumeration<String> getAll()
    Retrieves the components of this name as an enumeration of strings. The effect on the enumeration of updates to this name is undefined. If the name has zero components, an empty (non-null) enumeration is returned.
    Returns:
    an enumeration of the components of this name, each a string

method:get(int) [NONE]

  • get

    String get​(int posn)
    Retrieves a component of this name.
    Parameters:
    posn - the 0-based index of the component to retrieve. Must be in the range [0,size()).
    Returns:
    the component at index posn
    Throws:
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if posn is outside the specified range

method:getPrefix(int) [NONE]

  • getPrefix

    Name getPrefix​(int posn)
    Creates a name whose components consist of a prefix of the components of this name. Subsequent changes to this name will not affect the name that is returned and vice versa.
    Parameters:
    posn - the 0-based index of the component at which to stop. Must be in the range [0,size()].
    Returns:
    a name consisting of the components at indexes in the range [0,posn).
    Throws:
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if posn is outside the specified range

method:getSuffix(int) [NONE]

  • getSuffix

    Name getSuffix​(int posn)
    Creates a name whose components consist of a suffix of the components in this name. Subsequent changes to this name do not affect the name that is returned and vice versa.
    Parameters:
    posn - the 0-based index of the component at which to start. Must be in the range [0,size()].
    Returns:
    a name consisting of the components at indexes in the range [posn,size()). If posn is equal to size(), an empty name is returned.
    Throws:
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if posn is outside the specified range

method:startsWith(javax.naming.Name) [NONE]

  • startsWith

    boolean startsWith​(Name n)
    Determines whether this name starts with a specified prefix. A name n is a prefix if it is equal to getPrefix(n.size()).
    Parameters:
    n - the name to check
    Returns:
    true if n is a prefix of this name, false otherwise

method:endsWith(javax.naming.Name) [NONE]

  • endsWith

    boolean endsWith​(Name n)
    Determines whether this name ends with a specified suffix. A name n is a suffix if it is equal to getSuffix(size()-n.size()).

    n - the name to check
    Returns:
    true if n is a suffix of this name, false otherwise

method:addAll(javax.naming.Name) [NONE]

                Name n)
         throws InvalidNameException
