Interface Record<T>

  • Type Parameters:
    T - The type managed by the Record.
    All Superinterfaces:
    All Known Implementing Classes:

    public interface Record<T>
    extends java.util.Map<java.lang.String,T>
    A Record is a Map containing Field data structures with support for Column definitions. The Field instances can be managed with the functionality provided by a Column.

    A value can be retrieved from a Record by providing an according Column definition, which verifies the value type. Also values can be converted to and from the appropriate interchange and string formats by the according Column instances.

    In contrast to a Row, a Record relates the key (name) to its values. Similar to a Row, a Record makes use of Column instances (for example as provided by a Header or a Header instance) to give the fields additional semantics.
