public class GreaterFilter
extends ComparisonFilter
implements IndexAwareFilter

Filter which compares the result of a method invocation with a value for "Greater" condition. In a case when either result of a method invocation or a value to compare are equal to null, the evaluate test yields false. This approach is equivalent to the way the NULL values are handled by SQL.

Constructor Detail

GreaterFilter

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


GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(ValueExtractor extractor,
                     java.lang.Comparable oValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
extractor - the ValueExtractor to use by this filter
oValue - the object to compare the result with

GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(java.lang.String sMethod,
                     java.lang.Comparable oValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection
oValue - the object to compare the result with

GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(java.lang.String sMethod,
                     int iValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection
iValue - the integer value to compare the result with

GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(java.lang.String sMethod,
                     long lValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection
lValue - the long value to compare the result with

GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(java.lang.String sMethod,
                     float fValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection
fValue - the float value to compare the result with

GreaterFilter

public GreaterFilter(java.lang.String sMethod,
                     double dValue)
Construct a GreaterFilter for testing "Greater" condition.

Parameters:
sMethod - the name of the method to invoke via reflection
dValue - the double value to compare the result with
Method Detail

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

calculateEffectiveness

public int calculateEffectiveness(java.util.Map mapIndexes,
                                  java.util.Set setKeys)
Given a Map of available indexes, determine if this IndexAwareFilter can use any of the indexes to assist in its processing, and if so, determine how effective the use of that index would be.

The returned value is an effectiveness estimate of how well this filter can use the specified indexes to filter the specified keys. An operation that requires no more than a single access to the index content (i.e. Equals, NotEquals) has an effectiveness of one. Evaluation of a single entry is assumed to have an effectiveness that depends on the index implementation and is usually measured as a constant number of the single operations. This number is referred to as evaluation cost.

If the effectiveness of a filter evaluates to a number larger than the keySet.size() * <evaluation cost> then a user could avoid using the index and iterate through the keySet calling evaluate rather then applyIndex.

Specified by:
calculateEffectiveness in interface IndexAwareFilter
Parameters:
mapIndexes - the available MapIndex objects keyed by the related ValueExtractor; read-only
setKeys - the set of keys that will be filtered; read-only
Returns:
an effectiveness estimate of how well this filter can use the specified indexes to filter the specified keys

applyIndex

public Filter applyIndex(java.util.Map mapIndexes,
                         java.util.Set setKeys)
Filter remaining keys using a Map of available indexes.

The filter is responsible for removing all keys from the passed set of keys that the applicable indexes can prove should be filtered. If the filter does not fully evaluate the remaining keys using just the index information, it must return a filter (which may be an EntryFilter) that can complete the task using an iterating implementation. If, on the other hand, the filter does fully evaluate the remaining keys using just the index information, then it should return null to indicate that no further filtering is necessary.

Specified by:
applyIndex in interface IndexAwareFilter
Parameters:
mapIndexes - the available MapIndex objects keyed by the related ValueExtractor; read-only
setKeys - the mutable set of keys that remain to be filtered
Returns:
a Filter object (which may be an EntryFilter) that can be used to process the remaining keys, or null if no additional filter processing is necessary
