Oracle® OLAP Java API Reference
11g Release 2 (11.2)

E10794-05


oracle.olapi.data.source
Class FundamentalMetadataObject

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.olapi.data.source.FundamentalMetadataObject

All Implemented Interfaces:
MetadataObject

public final class FundamentalMetadataObject
extends java.lang.Object
implements MetadataObject

An object that represents a data type, function, or function parameter used by the Oracle OLAP Java API. Typically, application programmers only use the objects that represent OLAP Java API data types. They do not use the objects that represent OLAP Java API functions or their parameters. To get a FundamentalMetadataObject you use a method of the FundamentalMetadataProvider class. For example, to get a FundamentalMetadataObject that represents the OLAP Java API Boolean data type, use the FundamentalMetadataProvider.getBooleanDataType() method.

A FundamentalMetadataObject has a unique identifier (ID) that persists from one MetadataProvider instance to another. Therefore, an application can store the ID for a FundamentalMetadataObject during one and then it can use that ID in a later session. Of course, repeated use assumes that the FundamentalMetadataObject has not changed from session to session.
