|Method from net.sf.rvpf.metadata.Point Detail:|
public Content getContent()
The Point's Content handling provides normalization / denormalization services.
public List getFilters()
The filters allow the filtering of Notice values.
public String getIdent()
A Point's identification is either its name or ident when available, or its UUID as a String.
public List getInputs()
The Point's inputs are the points that may trigger a computation of this point and / or are needed by this Point's Transform program.
public int getLevel()
In the context of a Processor, a Point's level determines the order of processing within the Processor.
public Params getParams()
public List getResults()
When a new or updated value of this Point may trigger the computation of an other Point and / or this Point's value is used in its computation, that other Point is considered a dependant.
public Store getStore()
public Transform getTransform()
A Point's UUID is the logical primary key for that Point's definition.
