Package org.geotoolkit.metadata.iso Description

Metadata implementation. An explanation for this package is provided in the OpenGIS® javadoc. The remaining discussion on this page is specific to the Geotk implementation.


Overview
For a global overview of metadata in Geotk, see the Metadata page on the project web site.


Parameterized types
In GeoAPI interfaces, most collections are typed with wildcards, for example Collection<? extends Citation>. The Geotk implementation removes the wildcards and declares Collection<Citation> instead. This allows collections to be live. Consequently it is possible to add new elements directly in an existing collection using code like getCitations().add(myCitation) instead than setting the collection as a whole with setCitations(myCitations).


Localization
When a metadata object is marshalled as an ISO 19139 compliant XML document, the marshaller XML.LOCALE property will be used for the localization of every InternationalString and CodeList instances, except if the object to be marshalled is an instance of DefaultMetadata, in which case the value given to the setLanguage(Locale) method will have precedence. The later behavior is compliant with INSPIRE rules.
