public boolean isMatch(DocumentContent docContent,
- Description copied from interface:
- Returns true if this Attribute finds a match in the given DocContent. If true,
the associated document will be routed to the users specifed by the UNF
The isMatch method is responsible for determining whether content in a document matches content saved in workflow, thus determining whether to fire a rule or not.
The isMatch method takes a DocumentContent object and a list of rule extension objects and returns a Boolean. The DocumentContent object contains the data in XML
format that will be compared with the rules saved in workflow. Rule extension objects come from a potential rule that may match the document content on this eDoc.
The potential rule is selected based on the Document Type and Rule Templates associated with this eDoc. Each rule extension object contains a list of rule extension
value objects which have the data we will use in key value format to compare to the document content. The key will be determined by a unique string assigned by this
attribute. The Value is determined when a rule is created and data is entered for the particular key. If a match is found, this method returns true and the eDoc will
be routed based on this rule. If no match is found, the method returns false and the eDoc will not be routed based on this rule.
