StructuredData

public class StructuredData extends Object

Helper utility to generate a StructuredDataObject.

Structured data initialization occurs when start() calls init(Schema). Once initialized, IndexingItemBuilder calls getStructuredData(String, Multimap) to generate a StructuredDataObject for each document.

Typically the connector code does not access the structured data objects and methods directly. The build() automates the structure data generation using the connector provided data values when creating a document item:

String itemName = ... // set the unique ID for the item
 String objectType = ... // set the schema object type (possibly from the config file)
 // build a map that contains structured data values to pass on to the item builder
 Multimap<String, Object> multiMapValues = ... // populate item values from your data repository
 // ... add other item metadata values from your data repository

 // build the item
 Item item = IndexingItemBuilder.fromConfiguration(itemName)
     .setObjectType(objectType)
     .setValues(multiMapValues)
     // set other metadata such as setAcl, setItemType, setSourceRepositoryUrl, and so on
     .build();

Public Methods

public static StructuredDataObject getStructuredData (String objectType, Multimap<String, Object> values)

Generate a StructuredDataObject for the given object type using the input values.

The object type must be present in the current schema. The structured data properties are populated with the matching named values. init(Schema) must be executed before calling this method to initialize the structure data mappings.

Parameters
objectType object type name as defined in getName()
values Multimap of values to generate the StructuredDataObject
Returns

public static boolean hasObjectDefinition (String objectType)

Returns true if object definition is available in Schema for specified objectType. False if if object definition is not available in Schema.

Parameters
objectType to check if object definition is available in schema.
Returns
  • true if object definition is available. False otherwise.
Throws
IllegalStateException} if structured data object is not initialized yet.

public static synchronized void init (Schema schema)

Initializes the StructuredData object as defined by the Schema.

Build a map of all the structured data objects to their property definitions. This is used during document indexing to populate the document's data values to the appropriate structured data fields. This method must be executed before any other structured data methods can be called.

Only one of initFromConfiguration(IndexingService) or init can be called.

Parameters
schema the schema defined in the data source

public static synchronized void initFromConfiguration (IndexingService indexingService)

Initializes the StructuredData object as defined by a configured or default Schema.

Build a map of all the structured data objects to their property definitions. This is used during document indexing to populate the document's data values to the appropriate structured data fields. This method must be executed before any other structured data methods can be called.

Only one of initFromConfiguration or init(Schema) can be called.

Parameters
indexingService IndexingService instance used to get the default schema

public static boolean isInitialized ()

Determines whether the StructuredData object has been initialized.

The method init(Schema) must be called first to initialize structured data.

Returns
