Enum ResolverStyle

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable, java.lang.Comparable<ResolverStyle>

    public enum ResolverStyle
    extends java.lang.Enum<ResolverStyle>
    Enumeration of different ways to resolve dates and times.

    Parsing a text string occurs in two phases. Phase 1 is a basic text parse according to the fields added to the builder. Phase 2 resolves the parsed field-value pairs into date and/or time objects. This style is used to control how phase 2, resolving, happens.

    Specification for implementors

    This is an immutable and thread-safe enum.

      • STRICT

        public static final ResolverStyle STRICT
        Style to resolve dates and times strictly.

        Using strict resolution will ensure that all parsed values are within the outer range of valid values for the field. Individual fields may be further processed for strictness.

        For example, resolving year-month and day-of-month in the ISO calendar system using strict mode will ensure that the day-of-month is valid for the year-month, rejecting invalid values.

      • SMART

        public static final ResolverStyle SMART
        Style to resolve dates and times in a smart, or intelligent, manner.

        Using smart resolution will perform the sensible default for each field, which may be the same as strict, the same as lenient, or a third behavior. Individual fields will interpret this differently.

        For example, resolving year-month and day-of-month in the ISO calendar system using smart mode will ensure that the day-of-month is from 1 to 31, converting any value beyond the last valid day-of-month to be the last valid day-of-month.

      • LENIENT

        public static final ResolverStyle LENIENT
        Style to resolve dates and times leniently.

        Using lenient resolution will resolve the values in an appropriate lenient manner. Individual fields will interpret this differently.

        For example, lenient mode allows the month in the ISO calendar system to be outside the range 1 to 12. For example, month 15 is treated as being 3 months after month 12.

    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static ResolverStyle[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (ResolverStyle c : ResolverStyle.values())
            System.out.println(c);
        
        Returns:
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static ResolverStyle valueOf​(java.lang.String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        Parameters:
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        Returns:
        the enum constant with the specified name
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null
