Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-3936) Add CharacterStreamDescriptor
Date Thu, 06 Nov 2008 09:43:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-3936?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Kristian Waagan updated DERBY-3936:

    Attachment: derby-3936-1a-CharacterStreamDescriptor.diff

'derby-3936-1a-CharacterStreamDescriptor.diff' is the first revision of the CharacterStreamDescriptor

There is no code showing how it will be used yet, but I plan to pass it to UTF8Reader so that
it can properly configure itself.
Patch ready for review.

What you people think of the builder pattern used?
The reasons I tried it are to avoid a constructor with a load of arguments, avoid having a
set of many constructors and a wish to keep the descriptor object immutable.

>            Reporter: Kristian Waagan

> A set of state information is required about byte streams representing characters to
be able to handle them properly.
> The basic pieces of information are:
>  - is bufferable
>  - is position aware
>  - data offset
>  - current byte position
>  - current char position
>  - byte length
>  - char length
> Additional info:
>  - encoding
>  - max allowed length
>  - bytes per char information
> The information is chosen with UTF8Reader in mind, and the plan is to pass a CharacterStreamDescriptor
instance to the constructor to allow the reader to configure itself appropriately. The information
is expected to be valid only at a specific point in time, as some of it will change as soon
as the reader starts working with the underlying stream.
