Enum CodesystemHierarchyMeaning

    • Enum Constant Detail


        public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning GROUPEDBY
        No particular relationship between the concepts can be assumed, except what can be determined by inspection of the definitions of the elements (possible reasons to use this: importing from a source where this is not defined, or where various parts of the hierarchy have different meanings)
      • ISA

        public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning ISA
        A hierarchy where the child concepts have an IS-A relationship with the parents - that is, all the properties of the parent are also true for its child concepts

        public static final CodesystemHierarchyMeaning CLASSIFIEDWITH
        Child concepts in the hierarchy may have only one parent, and there is a presumption that the code system is a "closed world" meaning all things must be in the hierarchy. This results in concepts such as "not otherwise classified."
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static CodesystemHierarchyMeaning[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (CodesystemHierarchyMeaning c : CodesystemHierarchyMeaning.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static CodesystemHierarchyMeaning valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
