Class AbstractConfig<Config_ extends AbstractConfig<Config_>>

Type Parameters:
Config_ - the same class as the implementing subclass
Direct Known Subclasses:
BenchmarkReportConfig, ConstructionHeuristicForagerConfig, EntityPlacerConfig, LocalSearchAcceptorConfig, LocalSearchForagerConfig, MonitoringConfig, PhaseConfig, ProblemBenchmarksConfig, ScoreDirectorFactoryConfig, SelectorConfig, SolverBenchmarkConfig, SolverConfig, SolverManagerConfig, TerminationConfig

public abstract class AbstractConfig<Config_ extends AbstractConfig<Config_>> extends Object
A config class is a user-friendly, validating configuration class that maps XML input. It builds the runtime impl classes (which are optimized for scalability and performance instead).

A config class should adhere to "configuration by exception" in its XML/JSON input/output, so all non-static fields should be null by default. Using the config class to build a runtime class, must not alter the config class's XML/JSON output.

    • inherit

      public abstract Config_ inherit(Config_ inheritedConfig)
      Inherits each property of the inheritedConfig unless that property (or a semantic alternative) is defined by this instance (which overwrites the inherited behaviour).

      After the inheritance, if a property on this AbstractConfig composition is replaced, it should not affect the inherited composition instance.

      inheritedConfig - never null
    • copyConfig

      public abstract Config_ copyConfig()
      Typically implemented by constructing a new instance and calling inherit(AbstractConfig) on it.
      new instance
    • visitReferencedClasses

      public abstract void visitReferencedClasses(Consumer<Class<?>> classVisitor)
      Call the class visitor on each (possibly null) Class instance provided to this config by the user (including those provided in child configs). Required to create the bean factory in Quarkus.
      classVisitor - The visitor of classes, never null. Can accept null instances of Class.
