Interface IActivityPatternBinding

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Comparable<IActivityPatternBinding>

    public interface IActivityPatternBinding
    extends Comparable<IActivityPatternBinding>
    An instance of this interface represents a binding between an activity and a regular expression pattern. It's typically unnecessary to use this interface directly. Rather, clients wishing to test strings against activity patterns should use instances of IIdentifier.

    This interface is not intended to be extended or implemented by clients.

    Since:
    3.0

    IActivity, IIdentifier, IActivityManager.getIdentifier(String)
    Restriction:
    This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.
    • Method Detail

      • getActivityId

        String getActivityId()
        Returns the identifier of the activity represented in this binding.
        Returns:
        the identifier of the activity represented in this binding. Guaranteed not to be null.
      • getPattern

        Pattern getPattern()
        Returns the pattern represented in this binding. This pattern should conform to the regular expression syntax described by the java.util.regex.Pattern class. If isEqualityPattern() is true a Pattern will be generated based on the escaped version of the String returned by getString().
        Returns:
        the pattern. Guaranteed not to be null.
      • getString

        String getString()
        If isEqualityPattern() is true this will return the raw pattern string. Otherwise it will return the string version of the compiled pattern.
        Returns:
        The raw pattern string, or the string version of the compiled pattern, depending on isEqualityPattern().

      • isEqualityPattern

        boolean isEqualityPattern()
        Answers whether or not the pattern should be treated as a regular string or a regular expression. If true, this pattern binding will represent an equality match between the pattern and a target ID rather than a regular expression match.
        Returns:
        whether the pattern should be treated as regular string
