This class clones all the data passed to it during instantiation.
Creates a new instance by initializing it with the specified parameters.
Creates a new instance and intializes it by copying the data from the argument configuration.
Indicates whether some other object is "equal to" this one.
Gets the value for a field in this configuration.
Gets the field names present in this configuration.
Gets an user readable identifier for this IDE configuration.
Gets the type of this IDE configuration.
Returns a hash code value for the object.
The object implements the readExternal method to restore its contents by calling the methods of DataInput for primitive types and readObject for objects, strings and arrays.
Returns a string representation of the object.
The object implements the writeExternal method to save its contents by calling the methods of DataOutput for its primitive values or calling the writeObject method of ObjectOutput for objects, strings, and arrays.
The fields will be copied recursively.
null, it is considered to be empty.
equals method implements an equivalence relation on non-null object references:
- It is reflexive: for any non-null reference value

- It is transitive: for any non-null reference values
- It is consistent: for any non-null reference values

Note that it is generally necessary to override the
hashCode method whenever this method is overridden,
so as to maintain the general contract for the
hashCode method, which states that equal objects must have
equal hash codes.

The field names can be arbitrary. They should represent their meaning for a project configuration. It is best that they are short and describe what kind of aspect they correspond to.
If a field has a multiple value then its name should be plural. (E.g.
Although it is not necessary if the usage does not require it. (E.g. both
classpaths should be okay)
Any returned field values should be immutable.

If a field name is present in this returned collection then IDEConfiguration.getField(
null. It is an error to return
null if the field name is present in this
collection, but users of this class should be able to handle that gracefully.
This identifier should be based on a build step or location so the user can identify its correspondence to a build task. It is best if it's unique for a given IDE configuration type.
For example it can be an explicitly assigned identifier by the user, or a base source directory for the task which generated this configuration.
The type can be an arbitrary string which uniquely identifies a type of an IDE configuration. It is recommended that it is a dot separated name identified by the developer domain. (Like reverse domain naming in Java packages.)
The available field names for a given type should be documented by the developer of the given typed IDE configuration.
The general contract of
- Whenever it is invoked on the same object more than once during an execution of a Java application, the
hashCodemethod must consistently return the same integer, provided no information used in
equalscomparisons on the object is modified. This integer need not remain consistent from one execution of an application to another execution of the same application.
- If two objects are equal according to the
equals(Object)method, then calling the
hashCodemethod on each of the two objects must produce the same integer result.
- It is not required that if two objects are unequal according to the
Object)method, then calling the
hashCodemethod on each of the two objects must produce distinct integer results. However, the programmer should be aware that producing distinct integer results for unequal objects may improve the performance of hash tables.
As much as is reasonably practical, the hashCode method defined by class
Object does return distinct
integers for distinct objects. (This is typically implemented by converting the internal address of the object
into an integer, but this implementation technique is not required by the Java™ programming language.)
toStringmethod returns a string that "textually represents" this object. The result should be a concise but informative representation that is easy for a person to read. It is recommended that all subclasses override this method.
toString method for class
Object returns a string consisting of the name of the class of
which the object is an instance, the at-sign character `
@', and the unsigned hexadecimal representation
of the hash code of the object. In other words, this method returns a string equal to the value of:
getClass().getName() + '@' + Integer.toHexString(hashCode())
