#WarDBC A simple World of Warcraft DBC toolkit for Java

####Primary API

DBC.header(byte[]) -> DBC.Header

Extract the DBC header from the DBC data (already loaded as bytes). The header contains format, row, column, and other information.

DBC.read(byte[], DBC.Header, Decoder<T>, Consumer<T>)

Extract the DBC content from the DBC data (already loaded as bytes). You may provide a previously parsed header or null. The decoder is given a ByteBuffer and returns a type which represents a row. The decoded row is then passed to the consumer.

Parsing the header before calling this function is useful for things like: allocating a sufficient storage capacity or verifying the decoder has the correct number of columns.

###But raffy, I'm so lazy!

####Lazy API

LazyDBC lazy = new LazyDBC(Paths.get("DBFilesClient"));

Create a LazyDBC instance with a directory containing DBC files.

The LazyDBC loader uses Java reflection to turn mutable struct-like objects into DBC rows. Simply subclass LazyRow<K>, statically define the associated file name, define your columns, and define the primary key K. You can use LazyRowId if the primary key is an integer and is the first column.

Here is an example:

package wardbc.lazy.rows;

import wardbc.lazy.LazyRowId;

public class ExampleData extends LazyRowId {

    static public final String FILE = "Example.dbc";
    // public int id; // not required: defined through LazyRowId
    public String someString;
    public int someInt;
    public float[] someFloats = new float[3];
    public byte someByte;
    public boolean someBool;

Assuming there is a Example.dbc file in the directory associated with your LazyDBC instance, ExampleData.class is ready to be used.

A full list of supported files can be found here.

####Read via Lazy Class

// dump to stdout using toString()

// load to list
ArrayList<ExampleData> list = lazy.list(ExampleData.class);

// load to array
ExampleData[] array = lazy.array(ExampleData.class);

// load to map
TreeMap<Integer,ExampleData> map = lazy.map(ExampleData.class);

####Inspection via Lazy Class

// load some data
TreeMap<Integer,ExampleData> map = lazy.map(ExampleData.class);

// dump to stdout with multi-line formating
/* eg.       id = 12345
     someString = "u wot m8"
        someInt = 1337
     someFloats = [0.3, 0.4, 0.7] ... */

// dump to string with inline formatting
// eg. id(67890) someString(u wot m8) someInt(1337) someFloats([0.3, 0.4, 0.7]) ...

####Reflection via Lazy Class

// get number of columns found through reflection
// eg. 8

// get file name
// eg. "ExampleData.dbc"

// get path of file (note: must be called on a lazy instance)
// eg. "~/DBClientFiles/ExampleData.dbc"

// get a reflection decoder (for use with primary API)

// convert to string
ExampleData obj = ...
LazyDBC.toString(obj, true); // inline string
// related: obj.toString()
LazyDBC.toString(obj, false); // multi-line string
// related: obj.dump()
