The switch the delegates to the createXXX methods.

Constructor Detail

ModelAdapterFactory

public ModelAdapterFactory()
Creates an instance of the adapter factory.

Method Detail

isFactoryForType

public boolean isFactoryForType(Object object)
Returns whether this factory is applicable for the type of the object. This implementation returns true if the object is either the model's package or is an instance object of the model.

Returns:
whether this factory is applicable for the type of the object.

createAdapter

public Adapter createAdapter(Notifier target)
Creates an adapter for the target.

Parameters:
target - the object to adapt.
Returns:
the adapter for the target.

createRelationshipAdapter

public Adapter createRelationshipAdapter()
Creates a new adapter for an object of class 'Relationship'. This default implementation returns null so that we can easily ignore cases; it's useful to ignore a case when inheritance will catch all the cases anyway.

Returns:
the new adapter.
See Also:
Relationship

createArtifactAdapter

public Adapter createArtifactAdapter()
Creates a new adapter for an object of class 'Artifact'. This default implementation returns null so that we can easily ignore cases; it's useful to ignore a case when inheritance will catch all the cases anyway.

Returns:
the new adapter.
See Also:
Artifact

createApplicationModelAdapter

public Adapter createApplicationModelAdapter()
Creates a new adapter for an object of class 'Application Model'. This default implementation returns null so that we can easily ignore cases; it's useful to ignore a case when inheritance will catch all the cases anyway.

Returns:
the new adapter.
See Also:
ApplicationModel

createEObjectAdapter

public Adapter createEObjectAdapter()
Creates a new adapter for the default case. This default implementation returns null.

Returns:
the new adapter.

It is being made available at this early stage to solicit feedback from pioneering adopters on the understanding that any code that uses this API will almost certainly be broken (repeatedly) as the API evolves.
