  • Method Details

    • getNextFilename

      String getNextFilename​(T owner, String suggestedFilename)
      Get the next file name. This method should never return the same file name more than one time (given a single implementor instance). The generator implementation should not concern itself with the underlying file system or if the file already exists or not (this is a task for the DataWriterFactory implementation).
      owner - The owner of the data in the file
      suggestedFilename - A default suggested file name (can be null)
      A unique file name
