Class RawFunction

All Implemented Interfaces:
JepExpressionFunction, JepFunction, org.nfunk.jep.function.PostfixMathCommandI

public class RawFunction
extends Object
implements JepExpressionFunction
A JEP function class that adds a raw(string) function to a JEP expression parser. The function will look up the value of the raw data property with the given name. For example: raw('ch1FgMean') - raw('ch1BgMean')

To be able to use this function it must be registered with the JEP parser and, before the expression is evaluated, a raw data object must be set. For example we can evaluate an expression for every raw data object in a raw bioassay:

DbControl dc = ...
RawBioAssay assay = ...
String expression = "raw('ch1FgMean') - raw('ch1BgMean')";
RawFunction raw = new RawFunction(assay.getRawDataType());
JEP jep = JepUtil.newJep(expression, raw);
DataResultIterator<RawData> result = 
while (result.hasNext())
   double value = jep.getValue();
   // Do something with the value

    • RawFunction

      public RawFunction​(boolean allowUse)
      Create a new instance of this function. The new instance cannot be used to dynamically evaluate expressions. It should only be used for converting JEP formulas to Expression:s.

    • RawFunction

      public RawFunction​(DbControl dc, RawDataType rawDataType, boolean allowUse)
      Create a new instance of this function working with raw data of the specified raw data type.
      rawDataType - The type of raw data this function uses

      public Expression toExpression​(Node node)
      Use the Dynamic.rawData(String) method to create an expression referencing a raw data property.
