public enum AttributeKind
extends java.lang.Enum<AttributeKind>

Attribute kind enumeration.

All the attributes can be used for query operations. But the performance in query operations with the Basic attributes will be worse than with Indexed and Unique attributes. Unique attributes works as a primary key, that is two objects cannot have the same value for an attribute (but NULL).

Enum Constant Detail

Basic

public static final AttributeKind Basic
Basic attribute kind.


Indexed

public static final AttributeKind Indexed
Indexed attribute kind.


Unique

public static final AttributeKind Unique
Unique attribute kind.

Method Detail

values

public static AttributeKind[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (AttributeKind c : AttributeKind.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static AttributeKind valueOf(java.lang.String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
java.lang.NullPointerException - if the argument is null
