      Set whether to check dates on directories.
      includeDirs - whether to check the timestamp on directories.
    • setGranularity

      public void setGranularity(int granularity)
      Sets the number of milliseconds leeway we will give before we consider a file not to have matched a date.
      granularity - the number of milliseconds leeway.
    • setWhen

      public void setWhen(DateSelector.TimeComparisons tcmp)
      Sets the type of comparison to be done on the file's last modified date.

      parameters - the complete set of parameters for this selector.
    • verifySettings

      public void verifySettings()
      This is a consistency check to ensure the selector's required values have been set.
      verifySettings in class BaseSelector
    • isSelected

      public boolean isSelected(File basedir, String filename, File file)
      The heart of the matter. This is where the selector gets to decide on the inclusion of a file in a particular fileset.
      Specified by:
      isSelected in interface FileSelector
      Specified by:
      isSelected in class BaseExtendSelector
      basedir - the base directory from which the scan is being performed.
