Class QueryTreeBuilder

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class QueryTreeBuilder
    extends Object
    implements QueryBuilder
    This class should be used when there is a builder for each type of node.

    The type of node may be defined in 2 different ways: - by the field name, when the node implements the FieldableNode interface - by its class, it keeps checking the class and all the interfaces and classes this class implements/extends until it finds a builder for that class/interface

    This class always check if there is a builder for the field name before it checks for the node class. So, field name builders have precedence over class builders.

    When a builder is found for a node, it's called and the node is passed to the builder. If the returned built object is not null, it's tagged on the node using the tag QUERY_TREE_BUILDER_TAGID.

    The children are usually built before the parent node. However, if a builder associated to a node is an instance of QueryTreeBuilder, the node is delegated to this builder and it's responsible to build the node and its children.

        public Object build​(QueryNode queryNode)
                     throws QueryNodeException
        Builds some kind of object from a query tree. Each node in the query tree is built using an specific builder associated to it.
        Specified by:
        build in interface QueryBuilder
        queryNode - the query tree root node
        the built object
        QueryNodeException - if some node builder throws a QueryNodeException or if there is a node which had no builder associated to it
