Class XStreamSolutionFileIO<Solution_>

  • Type Parameters:
    Solution_ - the solution type, the class with the PlanningSolution annotation
    All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class XStreamSolutionFileIO<Solution_>
    extends Object
    implements SolutionFileIO<Solution_>
    Security warning: only use this class with XML files from a trusted source, because XStream is configured to allow all permissions, which can be exploited if the XML comes from an untrusted source.

      • getXStream

        public com.thoughtworks.xstream.XStream getXStream()
      • getInputFileExtension

        public String getInputFileExtension()
        Description copied from interface: SolutionFileIO
        Every PlanningSolution type potentially has its own file extension. If no specific file extension is defined by the use case, the following are recommended:
        • If this SolutionFileIO implementation serializes to XML, use file extension "xml".
        • If this SolutionFileIO implementation serializes to text, use file extension "txt".
        • If this SolutionFileIO implementation serializes to binary, use file extension "dat".

        It's good practice that both the input and the output file have the same file extension, because a good output file is able to function as an input file. Therefore SolutionFileIO.getOutputFileExtension() defaults to returning the same as this method.

        The file extension does not include the dot that separates it from the base name.

        This method is thread-safe.

        Specified by:
        getInputFileExtension in interface SolutionFileIO<Solution_>
        never null, for example "xml"
      • write

        public void write​(Solution_ solution,
                          File outputSolutionFile)
        Description copied from interface: SolutionFileIO
        This method is thread-safe.
        Specified by:
        write in interface SolutionFileIO<Solution_>
        solution - never null
        outputSolutionFile - never null, parent directory already exists
