Package Summary  Overview Summary

class:ComponentSampleModel [NONE]

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    BandedSampleModel, PixelInterleavedSampleModel

    public class ComponentSampleModel
    extends SampleModel
    
    This class represents image data which is stored such that each sample of a pixel occupies one data element of the DataBuffer. It stores the N samples which make up a pixel in N separate data array elements. Different bands may be in different banks of the DataBuffer. Accessor methods are provided so that image data can be manipulated directly. This class can support different kinds of interleaving, e.g. band interleaving, scanline interleaving, and pixel interleaving. Pixel stride is the number of data array elements between two samples for the same band on the same scanline. Scanline stride is the number of data array elements between a given sample and the corresponding sample in the same column of the next scanline. Band offsets denote the number of data array elements from the first data array element of the bank of the DataBuffer holding each band to the first sample of the band. The bands are numbered from 0 to N-1. This class can represent image data for which each sample is an unsigned integral number which can be stored in 8, 16, or 32 bits (using DataBuffer.TYPE_BYTE, DataBuffer.TYPE_USHORT, or DataBuffer.TYPE_INT, respectively), data for which each sample is a signed integral number which can be stored in 16 bits (using DataBuffer.TYPE_SHORT), or data for which each sample is a signed float or double quantity (using DataBuffer.TYPE_FLOAT or DataBuffer.TYPE_DOUBLE, respectively). All samples of a given ComponentSampleModel are stored with the same precision. All strides and offsets must be non-negative. This class supports TYPE_BYTE, TYPE_USHORT, TYPE_SHORT, TYPE_INT, TYPE_FLOAT, TYPE_DOUBLE,

method:getNumDataElements() [NONE]

method:getDataElements(int,int,java.lang.Object,java.awt.image.DataBuffer) [NONE]

  • getDataElements

    public Object getDataElements​(int x,
                                  int y,
                                  Object obj,
                                  DataBuffer data)
    Returns data for a single pixel in a primitive array of type TransferType. For a ComponentSampleModel, this is the same as the data type, and samples are returned one per array element. Generally, obj should be passed in as null, so that the Object is created automatically and is the right primitive data type.

    The following code illustrates transferring data for one pixel from DataBuffer db1 , whose storage layout is described by ComponentSampleModel csm1 , to DataBuffer db2 , whose storage layout is described by ComponentSampleModel csm2 . The transfer is usually more efficient than using getPixel and setPixel.

           ComponentSampleModel csm1, csm2;
           DataBufferInt db1, db2;
           csm2.setDataElements(x, y,
                                csm1.getDataElements(x, y, null, db1), db2);
     
    Using getDataElements and setDataElements to transfer between two DataBuffer/SampleModel pairs is legitimate if the SampleModel objects have the same number of bands, corresponding bands have the same number of bits per sample, and the TransferTypes are the same.

    If obj is not null, it should be a primitive array of type TransferType. Otherwise, a ClassCastException is thrown. An ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException might be thrown if the coordinates are not in bounds, or if obj is not null and is not large enough to hold the pixel data.

    Specified by:
    getDataElements in class SampleModel
    Parameters:
    x - the X coordinate of the pixel location
    y - the Y coordinate of the pixel location
    obj - if non-null, a primitive array in which to return the pixel data

    Returns:
    the data of the specified pixel
    Throws:
    NullPointerException - if data is null.
    ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException - if the coordinates are not in bounds, or if obj is too small to hold the output.

method:equals(java.lang.Object) [NONE]

  • equals

    public boolean equals​(Object o)
    Description copied from class: Object
    Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.

    The equals method implements an equivalence relation on non-null object references:

    • It is reflexive: for any non-null reference value x, x.equals(x) should return true.
    • It is symmetric: for any non-null reference values x and y, x.equals(y) should return true if and only if y.equals(x) returns true.
    • It is transitive: for any non-null reference values x, y, and z, if x.equals(y) returns true and y.equals(z) returns true, then x.equals(z) should return true.
    • It is consistent: for any non-null reference values x and y, multiple invocations of x.equals(y) consistently return true or consistently return false, provided no information used in equals comparisons on the objects is modified.
    • For any non-null reference value x, x.equals(null) should return false.

    The equals method for class Object implements the most discriminating possible equivalence relation on objects; that is, for any non-null reference values x and y, this method returns true if and only if x and y refer to the same object (x == y has the value true).

    Note that it is generally necessary to override the hashCode method whenever this method is overridden, so as to maintain the general contract for the hashCode method, which states that equal objects must have equal hash codes.

    Overrides:
    equals in class Object
    Parameters:
    o - the reference object with which to compare.
    Returns:
    true if this object is the same as the obj argument; false otherwise.

method:hashCode() [CHANGED]

  • hashCode

    public int hashCode()
    Description copied from class: Object
    Returns a hash code value for the object. This method is supported for the benefit of hash tables such as those provided by HashMap.

    The general contract of hashCode is:

    • Whenever it is invoked on the same object more than once during an execution of a Java application, the hashCode method must consistently return the same integer, provided no information used in equals comparisons on the object is modified. This integer need not remain consistent from one execution of an application to another execution of the same application.
    • If two objects are equal according to the equals(Object) method, then calling the hashCode method on each of the two objects must produce the same integer result.
    • It is not required that if two objects are unequal according to the Object.equals(java.lang.Object) method, then calling the hashCode method on each of the two objects must produce distinct integer results. However, the programmer should be aware that producing distinct integer results for unequal objects may improve the performance of hash tables.

      As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class Object does return distinct integers for distinct objects. (The hashCode may or may not be implemented as some function of an object's memory address at some point in time.)

    Overrides:
    hashCode in class Object
    Returns:
    a hash code value for this object.

    Object.equals(java.lang.Object), System.identityHashCode(java.lang.Object)
