Class StandardObjectChangeFilter.Filter

  • Enclosing class:

    protected static class StandardObjectChangeFilter.Filter
    extends Object
    The Filter class is used internally to do the actual work. A Filter consists of an objectType and a regex Pattern.

    The main method is matches(), which returns true if the given DatabaseObject matches the filter, and false if it does not match the Filter.

    If the objectType is null, then just the Pattern is used to compare the "name" of the object whether it matches or not.

    If the objectType is not null, then the objectType of the Filter must be assignableFrom the given DatabaseObject, AND the "name" of the DatabaseObject must match the Pattern.

    The "name" of the object might be what is returned from getName(), or it might be a different 'identifier' for different objet types.
