Constructor Detail

ByteAttribute

public ByteAttribute(String id)
Constructs a new instance of a ByteAttribute.

Parameters:
id - the id of the attribute

ByteAttribute

public ByteAttribute(String id,
                     byte value)
Constructs a new instance of a ByteAttribute with the given value.

Parameters:
id - the id of the attribute.
value - the value of the attribute.

ByteAttribute

public ByteAttribute(String id,
                     Byte value)
Constructs a new instance of a ByteAttribute with the given value.

Parameters:
id - the id of the attribute.
value - the value of the attribute.
Method Detail

setByte

public void setByte(byte value)
Set the value of this Object.

Parameters:
value - the new value for this object.

getByte

public byte getByte()
Returns the value of this object.

Returns:
the value of this object.

setDefaultValue

public void setDefaultValue()
Description copied from interface: Attribute
The attribute's value is set so that its getValue() method will not return null.

See Also:
Attribute.setDefaultValue()

getValue

public Object getValue()
Returns the value of the attribute wrapped in an Byte object..

Returns:
the value of the attribute wrapped in an Byte object.

copy

public Object copy()
Returns a deep copy of this instance.

Returns:
a deep copy of this instance.

doSetValue

protected void doSetValue(Object o)
                   throws IllegalArgumentException
Sets the value of the attribute. The ListenerManager is informed by the method setValue().

Specified by:
doSetValue in class AbstractAttribute
Parameters:
o - the new value of the attribute.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the parameter has not the appropriate class for this attribute.

toXMLString

public String toXMLString()
Description copied from interface: Displayable
Returns a well-formed XML string representing the Displayable. The Displayable should be reconstructable via this representation. Therefore it must at least include the type of Displayable (classname) and a representation of its value. PROBABLE FUTURE DESIGN: The Displayables themselves will provide a method to reconstruct their value from the XML representation they provided.

Specified by:
toXMLString in interface Displayable<Object>
Overrides:
toXMLString in class AbstractAttribute
Returns:
string holding an XML representation of this Displayable
