Class DBCSOnlyFieldDescription

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    VariableLengthFieldDescription, java.io.Serializable


    public class DBCSOnlyFieldDescription
    extends FieldDescription
    implements VariableLengthFieldDescription, java.io.Serializable
    The DBCSOnlyFieldDescription class represents the description of the data in a DBCS-only field. It allows:
    • The user to describe a DBCS-only field to the RecordFormat object.
    • The RecordFormat object to describe a DBCS-only field to the user.

      • DBCSOnlyFieldDescription

        public DBCSOnlyFieldDescription()
        Constructs a DBCSOnlyFieldDescription object.
      • DBCSOnlyFieldDescription

        public DBCSOnlyFieldDescription(AS400Text dataType,
                                java.lang.String name)
        Constructs a DBCSOnlyFieldDescription object. It uses the specified data type and name of the field. The length of the field will be the length specified on the AS400Text object.
        Parameters:
        dataType - Describes the field and provides the conversion capability for the contents of the field.
        name - The name of the field.
      • DBCSOnlyFieldDescription

        public DBCSOnlyFieldDescription(AS400Text dataType,
                                java.lang.String name,
                                java.lang.String ddsName)
        Constructs a DBCSOnlyFieldDescription object. It uses the specified data type, name, and DDS name of the field. The length of the field will be the length specified on the AS400Text object.
        Parameters:
        dataType - Describes the field and provides the conversion capability for the contents of the field.
        name - The name of the field.
        ddsName - The DDS name of this field. This is the name of the field as it would appear in a DDS description of the field. The length of ddsName must be 10 characters or less.

    • Method Detail

      • getCCSID

        public java.lang.String getCCSID()
        Returns the value specified for the CCSID keyword for this field.
        Returns:
        The value specified for the CCSID keyword for this field. If CCSID was not specified for this field, an empty string is returned.
      • getVARLEN

        public int getVARLEN()
        Returns the value specified for the VARLEN keyword for this field.
        Returns:
        The value specified for VARLEN for this field. If VARLEN was not specified for this field, 0 is returned.
      • isVariableLength

        public boolean isVariableLength()
        Indicates if the field is a variable-length field.
        Specified by:
        isVariableLength in interface VariableLengthFieldDescription
        Returns:
        true if the field is a variable-length field; false otherwise.
      • setCCSID

        public void setCCSID(java.lang.String ccsid)
        Sets the value for the CCSID keyword for this field.
        Parameters:
        ccsid - The value for the CCSID keyword for this field.
      • setDataType

        public void setDataType(AS400Text dataType)
        Sets the AS400DataType object describing this field.
        Parameters:
        dataType - The AS400DataType that describes this field. The dataType cannot be null.
      • setDFT

        public void setDFT(java.lang.String defaultValue)
        Sets the value for the DFT keyword for this field.
        Parameters:
        defaultValue - The default value for this field. The defaultValue cannot be null. To set a default value of *NULL, use the setDFTNull() method.
      • setDFTNull

        public void setDFTNull()
        Sets the value for the DFT keyword to be *NULL for this field. Calling this method will replace the DFT keyword that was previously set on a call to setDFT(). Note: This field must also have its ALWNULL keyword set to true to prevent DDS errors.
      • setVariableLength

        public void setVariableLength(boolean value)
        Sets the value that indicates if the field is a variable-length field.
        Specified by:
        setVariableLength in interface VariableLengthFieldDescription
        Parameters:
        value - true if the field is a variable-length field; false otherwise.
      • setVARLEN

        public void setVARLEN(int varLen)
        Sets the value to specify for the VARLEN keyword for this field.
        Parameters:
        varLen - The value to specify for the VARLEN keyword for this field. The varLen cannot be less than zero.
