Method Detail

getDimension

public MdmDimension getDimension()
                          throws oracle.express.mdm.MetadataNotFoundException
Gets the MdmPrimaryDimension that is associated with this MdmDimensionality.
Returns:
The MdmPrimaryDimension associated with this MdmDimensionality.
Throws:
oracle.express.mdm.MetadataNotFoundException

setDimension

public void setDimension(MdmDimension value)
Specifies the MdmPrimaryDimension to associate with this MdmDimensionality.
Parameters:
value - The MdmPrimaryDimension to associate with this MdmDimensionality.

getETAttrPrefix

public java.lang.String getETAttrPrefix()
                                 throws oracle.express.mdm.MetadataNotFoundException
Gets the ET attribute prefix of this MdmDimensionality.
Returns:
A String that is the prefix that Oracle OLAP adds to the name of the column for an attribute of a dimension in the materialized view for a cube.
Throws:
oracle.express.mdm.MetadataNotFoundException

setETAttrPrefix

public void setETAttrPrefix(java.lang.String value)
Specifies a prefix for the name of the column for an attribute of a dimension in the materialized view of a cube. When Oracle OLAP creates a materialized view for a cube, it creates columns for the attributes of the dimensions of the cubes. For the name of a column, it uses the name of the attribute column from the ET view of the dimension and adds a default prefix to the name. The ET attribute prefix provides a unique name for the column so that the name does not conflict with that of a column for an attribute of the same name that is owned by for another dimension. For example, each dimension of a cube might have an attribute named LONG_DESCRIPTION.

Oracle OLAP automatically assigns an ET attribute prefix for the column names for the attributes of a dimension in the materialized view for a cube. You can use this method to assign your own prefix for the column names.

Parameters:
value - A String that contains the prefix for Oracle OLAP to add to the name of the column for an attribute of a dimension in a materialized view for a cube.

acceptVisitor

public java.lang.Object acceptVisitor(MdmObjectVisitor visitor,
                                      java.lang.Object context)
Currently does not perform any operations.
Specified by:
acceptVisitor in class MdmObject
Parameters:
visitor - An MdmObjectVisitor that implements the Mdm11_ObjectVisitor interface.
context - An Object.
Returns:
Currently returns null.

getETColumn

public final MdmViewColumn getETColumn()
Gets the MdmViewColumn that represents the ET (Embedded Totals) values for this MdmDimensionality.
Returns:
The MdmViewColumn that represents the ET column for this MdmDimensionality.
