Class ModuleDescriptor.Version

All Implemented Interfaces:
Enclosing class:

public static final class ModuleDescriptor.Version
extends Object
implements Comparable<ModuleDescriptor.Version>
A module's version string.

A version string has three components: The version number itself, an optional pre-release version, and an optional build version. Each component is a sequence of tokens; each token is either a non-negative integer or a string. Tokens are separated by the punctuation characters '.', '-', or '+', or by transitions from a sequence of digits to a sequence of characters that are neither digits nor punctuation characters, or vice versa.

  • The version number is a sequence of tokens separated by '.' characters, terminated by the first '-' or '+' character.
  • The pre-release version is a sequence of tokens separated by '.' or '-' characters, terminated by the first '+' character.
  • The build version is a sequence of tokens separated by '.', '-', or '+' characters.

When comparing two version strings, the elements of their corresponding components are compared in pointwise fashion. If one component is longer than the other, but otherwise equal to it, then the first component is considered the greater of the two; otherwise, if two corresponding elements are integers then they are compared as such; otherwise, at least one of the elements is a string, so the other is converted into a string if it is an integer and the two are compared lexicographically. Trailing integer elements with the value zero are ignored.

Given two version strings, if their version numbers differ then the result of comparing them is the result of comparing their version numbers; otherwise, if one of them has a pre-release version but the other does not then the first is considered to precede the second, otherwise the result of comparing them is the result of comparing their pre-release versions; otherwise, the result of comparing them is the result of comparing their build versions.

    • parse

      public static ModuleDescriptor.Version parse​(String v)
      Parses the given string as a version string.
      v - The string to parse
      The resulting Version
      IllegalArgumentException - If v is null, an empty string, or cannot be parsed as a version string
    • compareTo

      public int compareTo​(ModuleDescriptor.Version that)
      Compares this module version to another module version. Module versions are compared as described in the class description.
      Specified by:
      compareTo in interface Comparable<ModuleDescriptor.Version>
      that - The module version to compare
      A negative integer, zero, or a positive integer as this module version is less than, equal to, or greater than the given module version
    • equals

      public boolean equals​(Object ob)
      Tests this module version for equality with the given object.

      If the given object is not a Version then this method returns false. Two module version are equal if their corresponding components are equal.

      This method satisfies the general contract of the Object.equals method.

      equals in class Object
      ob - the object to which this object is to be compared
      true if, and only if, the given object is a module reference that is equal to this module reference

      Object.hashCode(), HashMap
    • hashCode

      public int hashCode()
      Computes a hash code for this module version.

      The hash code is based upon the components of the version and satisfies the general contract of the Object.hashCode method.

      hashCode in class Object
      The hash-code value for this module version
      See Also:
      Object.equals(java.lang.Object), System.identityHashCode(java.lang.Object)
    • toString

      public String toString()
      Returns the string from which this version was parsed.
      toString in class Object
      The string from which this version was parsed.
