Class BasicNodeValidator<I>

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    NodeValidator<I>
    Direct Known Subclasses:
    AnnotationValidator, AnyToAnyValidator, DataFileValidator, NameableNodeValidator

    public abstract class BasicNodeValidator<I>
    extends Object
    implements NodeValidator<I>
    A simple node validation implementation that takes care of missing and denied access to items. This implementation will create child nodes for items that we are denied access to but not to missing items. Missing items are reported as failures to the parent node. Denied access are reported as failures to the node representing the item.

        Description copied from interface: NodeValidator
        Validate an item that the current user doen't have access to before creating a node for it.

      • postValidateFolder

        public void postValidateFolder​(DbControl dc,
                                       OverviewContext context,

        Parameters:
        dc - A DbControl to use for database access

      • getMissingItemFix

        protected abstract Fix getMissingItemFix​(DbControl dc,
                                                 Node parentNode)
        Subclasses should override this method if they have a suggessted fix for a missing item problem. The default implementation does nothing, but the following template may be usable by most subclasses:
                        new Fix("Add item to parent", parentNode.getItem())
                        
      • getDeniedItemFix

        protected Fix getDeniedItemFix​(DbControl dc,
                                       Node node,
                                       Node parentNode)
        Subclasses should override this method if they have a suggessted fix for an access denied problem. The default implementation does nothing.
