public interface ICoverageFeatureClass
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that retrieve ArcInfo Coverage Feature Class information.

Superseded By

ICoverageFeatureClass2

When To Use

Use this interface to find the values of the properties: type, attribute table, and topology, for an ArcInfo feature class.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux


Method Summary
 int getFeatureClassType()
          Type of the Feature Class.
 int getTopology()
          Topology of the Feature Class.
 boolean isHasFAT()
          Indicates if the Feature Class has a Feature Attribute Table.
 

Method Detail

getFeatureClassType

int getFeatureClassType()
                        throws IOException,
                               AutomationException
Type of the Feature Class.

Remarks

Feature classes are used to group all the features based on their type. The feature class type is important since each feature class type has different attributes and methods that it supports.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Supported Platforms

Windows, Solaris, Linux

Returns:
A com.esri.arcgis.datasourcesfile.esriCoverageFeatureClassType constant
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

getTopology

int getTopology()
                throws IOException,
                       AutomationException
Topology of the Feature Class.

Remarks

Topology explicitly defines spatial relationships, between features. This property will return the current state of the feature class' topology, if it is unknown, or if it is supported.
