Public Methods

abstract ByteDataBuffer
applyTo (S buffer)
Apply this layout to the provided buffer.
abstract byte
readByte (S buffer, long index)
Reads n = scale() values from the buffer at the given index and return them as a byte.
abstract Byte
readObject (S buffer, long index)
Reads n = scale() values from the buffer at the given index and return them as a single value in the user type.

Public Methods

public abstract ByteDataBuffer applyTo (S buffer)

Apply this layout to the provided buffer.

The returned DataBuffer instance is simply a wrapper to the original buffer and does not have a backing storage of his own.

Parameters
buffer the target buffer to apply this layout to
Returns
  • a buffer with this layout

public abstract byte readByte (S buffer, long index)

Reads n = scale() values from the buffer at the given index and return them as a byte.

Parameters
buffer the buffer to read from
index position of the buffer to read in the buffer
Returns
  • the byte value

public abstract Byte readObject (S buffer, long index)

Reads n = scale() values from the buffer at the given index and return them as a single value in the user type.

It is the responsibility of the implementors of this interface to read the value to be converted from the given buffer, using the most appropriate method. For example, for a layout that converting a single long to a BigInteger ,

 @Override
 public BigInteger readObject(LongDataBuffer buffer, long index) {
   return BigInteger.valueOf(buffer.getLong(index));
 }
 
If a single user value scales over more than one buffer values, index indicates the starting position of the sequence to be read from the buffer.

Parameters
buffer the buffer to read from
index position of the buffer to read in the buffer
Returns
  • the converted value

public abstract void writeByte (S buffer, byte value, long index)

Writes a byte into the buffer at the given index after converting it to the buffer type.

Parameters
buffer the buffer to write to
value the byte to convert and write
index index in the buffer where the converted value should be written

public abstract void writeObject (S buffer, Byte value, long index)
