Class MajoritySelector

All Implemented Interfaces:
Cloneable, ResourceSelector, FileSelector, SelectorContainer

public class MajoritySelector extends BaseSelectorContainer
This selector is here just to shake up your thinking a bit. Don't get too caught up in boolean, there are other ways you can evaluate a collection of selectors. This one takes a vote of the selectors it contains, and majority wins. You could also have an "all-but-one" selector, a "weighted-average" selector, and so on. These are left as exercises for the reader (as are the usecases where this would be necessary).

    • isSelected

      public boolean isSelected(File basedir, String filename, File file)
      Returns true (the file is selected) if most of the other selectors agree. In case of a tie, go by the allowtie setting. That defaults to true, meaning in case of a tie, the file is selected.
