Class DefaultClockControl

java.lang.Object
jmri.implementation.DefaultClockControl
All Implemented Interfaces:
ClockControl
Direct Known Subclasses:
CbusClockControl, LnClockControl, MrcClockControl, NceClockControl, OlcbClockControl, SRCPClockControl

public class DefaultClockControl
extends Object
implements ClockControl
Class providing default logic of the ClockControl interface. Hardware systems that have fast clocks should "extend DefaultClockControl" and override the appropriate methods. This class provides default implementations of ClockControl methods that are not needed in the hardware implementation if one exists, or for those systems with no hardware fast clock.
  • Constructor Details

  • Method Details

    • getStatus

      public int getStatus()
      Get Status of the Fast Clock. Potentially unused? Get status of the fast clock. Potentially unused?
      Specified by:
      getStatus in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      the status
    • getHardwareClockName

      Get name of hardware clock.

      If there is no hardware clock, this method returns null. Get name of hardware clock Note: If there is no hardware clock, DefaultClockControl returns null, so all hardware clocks must override this method.

      Specified by:
      getHardwareClockName in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      the name
    • canCorrectHardwareClock

      public boolean canCorrectHardwareClock()
      Returns true if hardware clock accuracy can be corrected using the computer clock.

      Hardware implementations should override this and return true if they can correct their hardware clock. Returns true if hardware clock accuracy can be corrected using the computer clock.

      Specified by:
      canCorrectHardwareClock in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      true if correctable; false otherwise
    • canSet12Or24HourClock

      public boolean canSet12Or24HourClock()
      Returns true if hardware clock can be set to 12 or 24 hour display from JMRI software.

      Default implementation is to return false. Returns 'true' if hardware clock can be set to 12 or 24 hour display from JMRI software.

      Specified by:
      canSet12Or24HourClock in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      true if settable; false otherwise
    • requiresIntegerRate

      public boolean requiresIntegerRate()
      Default implementation returns false.

      If an integer rate is required by the hardware, this method should be overridden. Returns true if hardware clock requires an integer rate.

      Specified by:
      requiresIntegerRate in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      true if integer rates only; false otherwise
    • setRate

      public void setRate​(double newRate)
      For the default implementation, setRate is ignored. Set the rate of the Fast Clock.

      The rate is a number that multiplies the wall clock time For example, a rate of 4 specifies that the fast clock runs 4 times faster than the wall clock.

      Specified by:
      setRate in interface ClockControl
      Parameters:
      newRate - the new rate
    • getRate

      public double getRate()
      Default implementation returns the rate of the internal clock. Get the rate of the Fast Clock.

      The rate is a number that multiplies the wall clock. For example, a rate of 4 specifies that the fast clock runs 4 times faster than the wall clock.

      Specified by:
      getRate in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      Fast Clock rate.
    • setTime

      public void setTime​(Date now)
      For the default implementation, set time is ignored. Set the fast clock time.
      Specified by:
      setTime in interface ClockControl
      Parameters:
      now - the new time
    • getTime

      public Date getTime()
      Default implementation returns InstanceM default jmri.Timebase getTime(). ie. the time of the internal clock. Get the fast clock time.
      Specified by:
      getTime in interface ClockControl
      Returns:
      current time.
    • startHardwareClock

      public void startHardwareClock​(Date now)
      Default implementation is to call SetTime to now. Start hardware fast clock Some hardware fast clocks continue to run indefinitely. This is provided for the case where the hardware clock can be stopped and started.
      Specified by:
      startHardwareClock in interface ClockControl
      Parameters:
      now - the starting time
    • stopHardwareClock

      public void stopHardwareClock()
      Default implementation is to ignore. Stop hardware fast clock. This is provided for the case where the hardware clock can be stopped and started.
      Specified by:
      stopHardwareClock in interface ClockControl
    • initializeHardwareClock

      public void initializeHardwareClock​(double rate, Date now, boolean getTime)
      Default implementation is to ignore this request. Initialize the hardware fast clock Note: When the hardware clock control receives this, it should initialize those clock settings that are available on the hardware clock. This method is used when the fast clock is started, and when time source, synchronize, or correct options are changed. If rate is 0.0, the hardware clock should be initialized "stopped", and the current rate saved for when the clock is restarted. If getTime is "true" the time from the hardware clock should be used in place of the supplied time if possible.
      Specified by:
      initializeHardwareClock in interface ClockControl
      Parameters:
      rate - the rate
      now - the time
      getTime - true if hardware clock should be used; false otherwise
