public final class Severity
extends EnumSyntax
implements Attribute

Class Severity is a printing attribute class, an enumeration, that denotes the severity of a PrinterStateReason attribute.

Instances of Severity do not appear in a Print Service's attribute set directly. Rather, a PrinterStateReasons attribute appears in the Print Service's attribute set. The PrinterStateReasons attribute contains zero, one, or more than one PrinterStateReason objects which pertain to the Print Service's status, and each PrinterStateReason object is associated with a Severity level of REPORT (least severe), WARNING, or ERROR (most severe). The printer adds a PrinterStateReason object to the Print Service's PrinterStateReasons attribute when the corresponding condition becomes true of the printer, and the printer removes the PrinterStateReason object again when the corresponding condition becomes false, regardless of whether the Print Service's overall PrinterState also changed.

IPP Compatibility: Severity.toString() returns either "error", "warning", or "report". The string values returned by each individual PrinterStateReason and associated Severity object's toString() methods, concatenated together with a hyphen ("-") in between, gives the IPP keyword value for a PrinterStateReasons. The category name returned by getName() gives the IPP attribute name.

Field Detail

REPORT

public static final Severity REPORT
Indicates that the PrinterStateReason is a "report" (least severe). An implementation may choose to omit some or all reports. Some reports specify finer granularity about the printer state; others serve as a precursor to a warning. A report must contain nothing that could affect the printed output.


WARNING

public static final Severity WARNING
Indicates that the PrinterStateReason is a "warning." An implementation may choose to omit some or all warnings. Warnings serve as a precursor to an error. A warning must contain nothing that prevents a job from completing, though in some cases the output may be of lower quality.


ERROR

public static final Severity ERROR
Indicates that the PrinterStateReason is an "error" (most severe). An implementation must include all errors. If this attribute contains one or more errors, the printer's PrinterState must be STOPPED.

Constructor Detail

Severity

protected Severity(int value)
Construct a new severity enumeration value with the given integer value.

Parameters:
value - Integer value.
Method Detail

getStringTable

protected String[] getStringTable()
Returns the string table for class Severity.

Overrides:
getStringTable in class EnumSyntax
Returns:
the string table

getEnumValueTable

protected EnumSyntax[] getEnumValueTable()
Returns the enumeration value table for class Severity.

Overrides:
getEnumValueTable in class EnumSyntax
Returns:
the value table

getCategory

public final Class<? extends Attribute> getCategory()
Get the printing attribute class which is to be used as the "category" for this printing attribute value.

For class Severity, the category is class Severity itself.

Specified by:
getCategory in interface Attribute
Returns:
Printing attribute class (category), an instance of class java.lang.Class.

getName

public final String getName()
Get the name of the category of which this attribute value is an instance.

For class Severit, the category name is "severity".

Specified by:
getName in interface Attribute
Returns:
Attribute category name.
