Field Detail

LANGUAGE

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute LANGUAGE
Attribute key for the language of some text.

Values are instances of Locale.

See Also:
Locale

READING

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute READING
Attribute key for the reading of some text. In languages where the written form and the pronunciation of a word are only loosely related (such as Japanese), it is often necessary to store the reading (pronunciation) along with the written form.

Values are instances of Annotation holding instances of String.

See Also:
Annotation, String

INPUT_METHOD_SEGMENT

public static final AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute INPUT_METHOD_SEGMENT
Attribute key for input method segments. Input methods often break up text into segments, which usually correspond to words.

Values are instances of Annotation holding a null reference.

See Also:
Annotation
Constructor Detail

AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute

protected AttributedCharacterIterator.Attribute(String name)
Constructs an Attribute with the given name.

Method Detail

equals

public final boolean equals(Object obj)
Compares two objects for equality. This version only returns true for x.equals(y) if x and y refer to the same object, and guarantees this for all subclasses.

Overrides:
equals in class Object
Parameters:
obj - the reference object with which to compare.
Returns:
true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.
See Also:
Object.hashCode(), Hashtable

hashCode

public final int hashCode()
Returns a hash code value for the object. This version is identical to the one in Object, but is also final.

Overrides:
hashCode in class Object
Returns:
a hash code value for this object.
See Also:
Object.equals(java.lang.Object), Hashtable

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string representation of the object. This version returns the concatenation of class name, "(", a name identifying the attribute and ")".

Overrides:
toString in class Object
Returns:
a string representation of the object.

getName

protected String getName()
Returns the name of the attribute.


readResolve

protected Object readResolve()
                      throws InvalidObjectException
Resolves instances being deserialized to the predefined constants.

Throws:
InvalidObjectException
