MidiFileWriter

public MidiFileWriter()
Method Detail

getMidiFileTypes

public abstract int[] getMidiFileTypes()
Obtains the set of MIDI file types for which file writing support is provided by this file writer.

Returns:
array of file types. If no file types are supported, an array of length 0 is returned.

getMidiFileTypes

public abstract int[] getMidiFileTypes(Sequence sequence)
Obtains the file types that this file writer can write from the sequence specified.

Parameters:
sequence - the sequence for which MIDI file type support is queried
Returns:
array of file types. If no file types are supported, returns an array of length 0.

isFileTypeSupported

public boolean isFileTypeSupported(int fileType)
Indicates whether file writing support for the specified MIDI file type is provided by this file writer.

Parameters:
fileType - the file type for which write capabilities are queried
Returns:
true if the file type is supported, otherwise false

isFileTypeSupported

public boolean isFileTypeSupported(int fileType,
                                   Sequence sequence)
Indicates whether a MIDI file of the file type specified can be written from the sequence indicated.

Parameters:
fileType - the file type for which write capabilities are queried
sequence - the sequence for which file writing support is queried
Returns:
true if the file type is supported for this sequence, otherwise false

write

public abstract int write(Sequence in,
                          int fileType,
                          OutputStream out)
                   throws IOException
Writes a stream of bytes representing a MIDI file of the file type indicated to the output stream provided.

Parameters:
in - sequence containing MIDI data to be written to the file
fileType - type of the file to be written to the output stream
out - stream to which the file data should be written
Returns:
the number of bytes written to the output stream
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O exception occurs
IllegalArgumentException - if the file type is not supported by this file writer

isFileTypeSupported(int, Sequence), getMidiFileTypes(Sequence)

write

public abstract int write(Sequence in,
                          int fileType,
                          File out)
                   throws IOException
Writes a stream of bytes representing a MIDI file of the file type indicated to the external file provided.

Parameters:
in - sequence containing MIDI data to be written to the external file
fileType - type of the file to be written to the external file
out - external file to which the file data should be written
Returns:
the number of bytes written to the file
Throws:
IOException - if an I/O exception occurs
IllegalArgumentException - if the file type is not supported by this file writer
See Also:
isFileTypeSupported(int, Sequence), getMidiFileTypes(Sequence)
