Enum Constant Detail

WRITE_HEADER

public static final SmileGenerator.Feature WRITE_HEADER
Whether to write 4-byte header sequence when starting output or not. If disabled, no header is written; this may be useful in embedded cases where context is enough to know that content is encoded using this format. Note, however, that omitting header means that default settings for shared names/string values can not be changed.

Default setting is true, meaning that header will be written.


WRITE_END_MARKER

public static final SmileGenerator.Feature WRITE_END_MARKER
Whether write byte marker that signifies end of logical content segment (SmileConstants.BYTE_MARKER_END_OF_CONTENT) when SmileGenerator.close() is called or not. This can be useful when outputting multiple adjacent logical content segments (documents) into single physical output unit (file).

Default setting is false meaning that such marker is not written.


ENCODE_BINARY_AS_7BIT

public static final SmileGenerator.Feature ENCODE_BINARY_AS_7BIT
Whether to use simple 7-bit per byte encoding for binary content when output. This is necessary ensure that byte 0xFF will never be included in content output. For other data types this limitation is handled automatically; but since overhead for binary data (14% size expansion, processing overhead) is non-negligible, it is not enabled by default. If no binary data is output, feature has no effect.

Default setting is true, indicating that binary data is quoted as 7-bit bytes instead of written raw.


CHECK_SHARED_NAMES

public static final SmileGenerator.Feature CHECK_SHARED_NAMES
Whether generator should check if it can "share" field names during generating content or not. If enabled, can replace repeating field names with back references, which are more compact and should faster to decode. Downside is that there is some overhead for writing (need to track existing values, check), as well as decoding.

Since field names tend to repeat quite often, this setting is enabled by default.


CHECK_SHARED_STRING_VALUES

public static final SmileGenerator.Feature CHECK_SHARED_STRING_VALUES
Whether generator should check if it can "share" short (at most 64 bytes encoded) String value during generating content or not. If enabled, can replace repeating Short String values with back references, which are more compact and should faster to decode. Downside is that there is some overhead for writing (need to track existing values, check), as well as decoding.

Since efficiency of this option depends a lot on type of content being produced, this option is disabled by default, and should only be enabled if it is likely that same values repeat relatively often.

Method Detail

values

public static SmileGenerator.Feature[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (SmileGenerator.Feature c : SmileGenerator.Feature.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static SmileGenerator.Feature valueOf(String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null

collectDefaults

public static int collectDefaults()
Method that calculates bit set (flags) of all features that are enabled by default.


enabledByDefault

public boolean enabledByDefault()

getMask

public int getMask()
