Nested Class Summary
Nested Classes Modifier and Type Interface Description
FieldAdapter.IdentityIdentity implementation of FieldAdapter.
boolean isLanguageSpecific()Returns whether the adapted value can depend on the language.
- true or false
adaptAdapts a T to return the value in the specified language. The specified language may be null, in which case no specific language may be used. An implementation may return null, which is equivalent to "do not index this field for this language". The returned value is the one that is stored and is thus what is returned and displayed in Advanced Search. If this adapter is language specific, its adapt methods will be called for each language and for a null language to index the value in a language agnostic way (if possible). If it is not language specific, only the latter is the case. This method is only invoked if this adapter's field is stored. The returned value should match one of the registered
value- the value to adapt
forLocale- the target locale to represent the value in
- the adapted value, or null if no value should be stored
