public abstract class IntegerSyntax extends Object implements Cloneable, Serializable
Class IntegerSyntax is an abstract base class providing the common implementation of all attributes with integer values.

Under the hood, an integer attribute is just an integer. You can get an integer attribute's integer value by calling {@link #getValue() getValue()}. An integer attribute's integer value is established when it is constructed (see {@link #IntegerSyntax(int) IntegerSyntax(int)}). Once constructed, an integer attribute's value is immutable.

Fields Summary
private static final long
private int
This integer attribute's integer value.
Constructors Summary
protected IntegerSyntax(int value)
Construct a new integer attribute with the given integer value.

value Integer value.

	this.value = value;
protected IntegerSyntax(int value, int lowerBound, int upperBound)
Construct a new integer attribute with the given integer value, which must lie within the given range.

value Integer value.
lowerBound Lower bound.
upperBound Upper bound.
IllegalArgumentException (Unchecked exception) Thrown if value is less than lowerBound or greater than upperBound.

	if (lowerBound > value || value > upperBound) {
	    throw new IllegalArgumentException("Value " + value +
					       " not in range " + lowerBound +
					       ".." + upperBound);
	this.value = value;
Methods Summary
public booleanequals(java.lang.Object object)
Returns whether this integer attribute is equivalent to the passed in object. To be equivalent, all of the following conditions must be true:
  1. object is not null.
  2. object is an instance of class IntegerSyntax.
  3. This integer attribute's value and object's value are equal.

object Object to compare to.
True if object is equivalent to this integer attribute, false otherwise.

	return (object != null && object instanceof IntegerSyntax &&
		value == ((IntegerSyntax) object).value);
public intgetValue()
Returns this integer attribute's integer value.

the integer value

	return value;
public inthashCode()
Returns a hash code value for this integer attribute. The hash code is just this integer attribute's integer value.

	return value;
public java.lang.StringtoString()
Returns a string value corresponding to this integer attribute. The string value is just this integer attribute's integer value converted to a string.

	return "" + value;
