public class ValueChangeEventFilter
extends ExtractorFilter
implements Filter

Filter which evaluates the content of a MapEvent values based on the specified value extractor. This filter evaluates to true only for update events that change the value of an extracted attribute.

Example: a filter that evaluates to true if there is an update to an Employee object that changes a value of the LastName property.

   new ValueChangeEventFilter("LastName");

Constructor Detail

ValueChangeEventFilter

public ValueChangeEventFilter()
Default constructor (necessary for the ExternalizableLite interface).

ValueChangeEventFilter

public ValueChangeEventFilter(ValueExtractor extractor)
Construct a ValueChangeEventFilter that evaluates MapEvent values based on the specified extractor.
Parameters:
extractor - ValueExtractor to extract MapEvent values

ValueChangeEventFilter

public ValueChangeEventFilter(java.lang.String sMethod)
Construct a ValueChangeEventFilter that evaluates MapEvent values based on the specified method name.
Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection

Method Detail

evaluate

public boolean evaluate(java.lang.Object o)
Apply the test to the object.
Specified by:
evaluate in interface Filter
Overrides:
evaluate in class ExtractorFilter
Parameters:
o - the object to test
Returns:
true if the test passes, false otherwise

evaluateExtracted

protected boolean evaluateExtracted(java.lang.Object oExtracted)
Evaluate the specified extracted value.
Specified by:
evaluateExtracted in class ExtractorFilter
Parameters:
oExtracted - an extracted value to evaluate

equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object o)
Compare the ValueChangeEventFilter with another object to determine equality.
Returns:
true iff this ValueChangeEventFilter and the passed object are equivalent filters

hashCode

public int hashCode()
