Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (IMAGING-159) There should be a Parameters class

---------------------------------------------------------------

How about provide options as an enum rather than a Map? Like:
{noformat}
Options.PARAM_KEY_COMPRESSION.getInt()
{noformat}

But there is a problem in it. If the value of another option is something else than an int,
maybe a Byte, and then caller calls

{noformat}
Options.PARAM_KEY_ANOTHER_IS_A_BYTE.getInt()
{noformat}
instead of
{noformat}
Options.PARAM_KEY_ANOTHER_IS_A_BYTE.getByte()
{noformat}
then - what then?

> Currently options for image I/O are defined as Maps. The leads to the problem that our
code has to validate parameter types when they are used:
> {code:java}
> final Object value = params.get(PARAM_KEY_COMPRESSION);
> if (value != null) {
>   if (!(value instanceof Number)) {
>     throw new ImageWriteException(
>       "Invalid compression parameter, must be numeric: "
>          + value);
>   }
>   compression = ((Number) value).intValue();
> }
> {code}
> This can be simplified if we define a Parameters class that provides additional methods
like {{public int getInt(String key)}}. The implementation could then look up the value from
the map through an exception if it is null or not a number.
