Class PathSegment

Direct Known Subclasses:
PathSegment.ArraySegment, PathSegment.NameSegment

public abstract class PathSegment extends Object
Used to represent path to nested field within schema as a chain of path segments. Where each segment in the chain may be either named or array segment.

    • contains

      public boolean contains(PathSegment otherSeg)
      Check if another path is contained in this one. This is useful for 2 cases. The first is checking if the other is lower down in the tree, below this path. The other is if a path is actually contained above the current one. Examples: [a] . contains( [a.b.c] ) returns true [a.b.c] . contains( [a] ) returns true This behavior is used for cases like scanning json in an event based fashion, when we arrive at a node in a complex type, we will know the complete path back to the root. This method can be used to determine if we need the data below. This is true in both the cases where the column requested from the user is below the current node (in which case we may ignore other nodes further down the tree, while keeping others). This is also the case if the requested path is further up the tree, if we know we are at position a.b.c and a.b was a requested column, we need to scan all of the data at and below the current a.b.c node.
      otherSeg - - path segment to check if it is contained below this one.
      - is this a match
