Class Variables

plainTextFlavor

public static DataFlavor plainTextFlavor

A preset DataFlavor object representing plain text.

stringFlavor

public static DataFlavor stringFlavor

A preset DataFlavor object representing a Java String.

Constructors

DataFlavor

public DataFlavor (Class representationClass, String humanPresentableName)

Parameters

representationClass

The Java class that represents data in this flavor.

humanPresentableName

A name for this flavor that humans will recognize.

Description

Constructs a DataFlavor object with the given characteristics. The MIME type for this DataFlavor is application/x-java-serialized-object <Java ClassName>.[1]

[1] The type name changed to x-java-serialized-object in the 1.1.1 release.

public DataFlavor (String MIMEType, String humanPresentableName)

Parameters

MIMEType

The MIME type string this DataFlavor represents.

humanPresentableName

A name for this flavor that humans will recognize.

Description

Constructs a DataFlavor object with the given characteristics. The representation class used for this DataFlavor is java.io.InputStream.

Instance Methods

equals

public boolean equals (DataFlavor dataFlavor)

Parameters

dataFlavor

The flavor to compare.

Returns

true if dataFlavor is equivalent to this DataFlavor, false otherwise.

Description

Compares two different DataFlavor instances for equivalence.

getHumanPresentableName

public String getHumanPresentableName()

Returns

The name of this flavor.

getMIMEType

public String getMIMEType()

Returns

The MIME type string for this flavor.

getRepresentationClass

public Class getRepresentationClass()

Returns

The Java class that will be used to represent data in this flavor.

isMIMETypeEqual

public boolean isMIMETypeEqual (String MIMEType)

Parameters

MIMEType

The type to compare.

Returns

true if the given MIME type is the same as this DataFlavor's MIME type; false otherwise.

Description

Compares two different DataFlavor MIME types for equivalence.

public final boolean isMIMETypeEqual (DataFlavor dataFlavor)

Parameters

dataFlavor

The flavor to compare.

Returns

true if DataFlavor's MIME type is the same as this DataFlavor's MIME type; false otherwise.

Description

Compares two different DataFlavor MIME types for equivalence.

setHumanPresentableName

public void setHumanPresentableName (String humanPresentableName)

Parameters

humanPresentableName

A name for this flavor that humans will recognize.

Description

Changes the name of the DataFlavor.

Protected Instance Methods

normalizeMIMEType

protected String normalizeMIMEType (String MIMEType)

Parameters

MIMEType

The MIME type string to normalize.

Returns

Normalized MIME type string.

Description

This method is called for each MIME type string. Subclasses can override this method to add default parameter/value pairs to MIME strings.

normalizeMIMETypeParameter

protected String normalizeMIMETypeParameter (String parameterName, String parameterValue)

Parameters

parameterName

The MIME type parameter to normalize.

parameterValue

The corresponding value.

Returns

Normalized MIME type parameter string.

Description

This method is called for each MIME type parameter string. Subclasses can override this method to handle special parameters, such as those that are case-insensitive.
