Class ConstructedBERTLV


public final class ConstructedBERTLVextends BERTLV

The ConstructedBERTLV class encapsulates a constructed BER TLV structure. It extends the generic BER TLV class. The rules on the allowed encoding of the Tag, length and value fields is based on the ASN.1 BER encoding rules ISO/IEC 8825-1:2002.

The  ConstructedBERTLV class only supports encoding of the length(L)

octets in definite form. The value(V) field which encodes the contents octets are merely viewed as a set of other BERTLVs. Every ConstructedBERTLV has a capacity which represents the size of the allocated internal data structures to reference all the contained BER TLV objects. As long as the number of contained BER TLV objects of the ConstructedBERTLV does not exceed the capacity, it is not necessary to allocate new internal data. If the internal buffer overflows, and the implementation supports automatic expansion which might require new data allocation and possibly old data/object deletion, it is automatically made larger. Otherwise a TLVException is thrown.

The BERTLV class and the subclasses ConstructedBERTLV and

PrimitiveBERTLV, also provide static methods to parse or edit a TLV structure representation in a byte array.

Constructor Detail

ConstructedBERTLV

public ConstructedBERTLV(short numTLVs)

Constructor creates an empty ConstructedBERTLV object capable of encapsulating a ConstructedBERTLV structure. The initial capacity is specified by the numTLVs argument.

Parameters:numTLVs - is the number of contained TLVs to allocate

Throws: TLVException- with the following reason codes:

  • TLVException.INVALID_PARAM if numTLVs parameter is negative or larger than the maximum capacity supported by the implementation.


Method Detail

init

public short init(byte[] bArray, short bOff, short bLen) throws TLVException

(Re-)Initializes this ConstructedBERTLV using the input byte data. If this ConstructedBERTLV is not empty, internal references to the previously contained BER TLV objects is removed.

Each contained BERTLV is constructed and initialized using this init method. The initial capacity of each of the contained ConstructedBERTLV objects is set to the number of TLVs contained at the top level of that TLV structure in the byte array.

Note:

  • If bOff+bLen is greater than bArray.length, the length of the bArray array, an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException exception is thrown.


Specified by:initin class BERTLV

Parameters:bArray - input byte array

bOff - offset within byte array containing the tlv data

bLen - byte length of input data

Returns:the resulting size of this TLV if represented in bytes

Throws: ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException- if accessing the input array would cause access of data outside array bounds, or if the array offset or array length parameter is negative

NullPointerException- if bArray is null

TLVException- with the following reason codes:

  • TLVException.ILLEGAL_SIZE if the required capacity is not available and the implementation does not support automatic expansion.


  • TLVException.MALFORMED_TLV if the input data is not a well-formed constructed BER TLV structure.



init

public short init(ConstructedBERTag  tag, BERTLV  aTLV) throws TLVException

(Re-)Initializes this ConstructedBERTLV object with the input tag and TLV parameter. Note that a reference to the BER Tag object parameter is retained by this object. If the input BER Tag object is modified, the TLV structure encapsulated by this TLV instance is also modified. Similarly, a reference to the BER TLV object parameter is also retained by this object.If the input BER TLV object is modified, the TLV structure encapsulated by this TLV instance is also modified.

Parameters:tag - a BERTag object

aTLV - to use to initialize as the value of this TLV

Returns:the resulting size of this TLV if represented in bytes

Throws: NullPointerException- if either tag oraTLV is null

TLVException- with the following reason codes:

  • TLVException.INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE if the required capacity is not available and the implementation does not support automatic expansion


  • TLVException.INVALID_PARAM if aTLV is this or this TLV object is contained in any of the constructed TLV objects in the hierarchy of the aTLV object.



init

public short init(ConstructedBERTag  tag, byte[] vArray, short vOff, short vLen) throws TLVException

(Re-)Initializes this ConstructedBERTLV object with the input tag and specified data as value of the object. Note that a reference to the BER Tag object is retained by this object. If the input BER Tag object is modified, the TLV structure encapsulated by this TLV instance is also modified.

Each contained BERTLV is constructed and initialized using this init method. The initial capacity of each of the contained ConstructedBERTLV objects is set to the number of TLVs contained at the top level of that TLV structure in the byte array.

Note:

  • If vOff+vLen is greater than vArray.length, the length of the vArray array, an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException exception is thrown.


Parameters:tag - a BERTag object

vArray - the byte array containing vLen bytes of TLV Value

vOff - offset within the vArray byte array where data begins

vLen - byte length of the value data in vArray

Returns:the resulting size of this TLV if represented in bytes

Throws: ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException- if accessing the input array would cause access of data outside array bounds, or if the array offset or array length parameter is negative

NullPointerException- if either tag or vArray is null

TLVException- with the following reason codes:

  • TLVException.INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE or if the required capacity is not available and the implementation does not support automatic expansion.



append

public short append(BERTLV  aTLV) throws TLVException

Append the specified TLV to the end of ConstructedBERTLV. Note that a reference to the BER TLV object parameter is retained by this object. A change in the BER TLV object contents affects this TLV instance.

Parameters:aTLV - a BER TLV object

Returns:the resulting size of this TLV if represented in bytes

Throws: NullPointerException- if aTLV is null

TLVException- with the following reason codes:

  • TLVException.INSUFFICIENT_STORAGE if the required capacity is not available and the implementation does not support automatic expansion.

Parameters:aTLV - the BER TLV object to delete from this

occurrenceNum - specifies which occurrence of aTLV within this BER TLV to use

Returns:the resulting size of this TLV if represented in bytes

Throws: NullPointerException- if aTLV is null

TLVException- with the following reason codes:

findNext

public BERTLVfindNext(BERTag  tag, BERTLV  aTLV, short occurrenceNum)
