Subject [jira] [Reopened] (SIS-188) Hide FieldDescriptor (a DBase3 internal format structure)
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2017 01:07:01 GMT


Martin Desruisseaux reopened SIS-188:

{{DBase3FieldDescriptor}} and {{ShapefileDescriptor}} moved to internal package but are still
exposed as public API in {{ShapeFile}}. They should be replaced by supported API based on
OGC/ISO standards.

> The {{}} package contains a {{FieldDescriptor}} public
class, which contain information that look likes very specific to the internal of DBase format.
For example:
> * Field name as an array of bytes (this is not what user would usually handle, which
are rather {{String}} objects)
> * Field address in memory (maybe an heritage from C/C++ ?)
> * DBase+ Lan Reserved 2 (not sure what it is, documentation only said "reserved 2")
> Those internal details should not be visible to the users. I suggest to either declare
the class package-privated, or move it to an internal package.
> The {{FieldDescriptors}} class, which is a list of {{FieldDescriptor}}, should also move
in the same way.
