Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-80) org.apache.sis.metadata.PropertyDescriptor to implement org.opengis.feature.type.PropertyDescriptor
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 20:21:12 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-80:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: org.apache.sis.metadata.PropertyDescriptor to implement org.opengis.feature.type.PropertyDescriptor
                 Key: SIS-80
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SIS-80
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Metadata
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor


The {{org.apache.sis.metadata}} package contains a package-private {{PropertyDescriptor}}
class, which currently implements {{org.opengis.parameter.ParameterDescriptor}}. The later
is not really appropriate since metadata are not parameters. The {{org.opengis.feature.type.PropertyDescriptor}}
interface would probably be more appropriate. However the feature packages are not yet part
of GeoAPI standard (they are still in the pending part), while {{ParameterDescriptor}} is
part of GeoAPI 3.0.0.

While the package-private class is not directly exposed to users, the interface implemented
by this class is accessible by users. So the choice of {{ParameterDescriptor}} / {{PropertyDescriptor}}
is significant. For now we stick on {{ParameterDescriptor}}, but a future Apache SIS version
may need a transition path to features.
