      public ObjectIdentifier()
      The default constructor.

      public ObjectIdentifier(String valueNotation) throws BadObjectIdentifierException
      Construct from a String. The String can contain ASN.1 Value Notation in the format: "{ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 }" or in the format "". With the first format, the blanks after the '{' and before the '}' are optional. If the string has some extra characters before the '{' or after the '}', they are simply ignored.
      valueNotation - the value to set this object's value to.
      BadObjectIdentifierException - thrown if the String parameter does not contain valid ASN.1 Value Notation
    • ObjectIdentifier

      public ObjectIdentifier(byte[] value)
      Construct from a byte array. Each byte of the array (each subidentifier) must be a value that can be represented in one octet. So for example if one subidentifier has the value, 245 (0xF5 hex), then the correct representation is by two octets: 0x81 and 0x75, and the correct argument for the ObjectIdentifier(byte[]) will have a constructor containing (other values have been left blank): 'new byte[] { ... , (byte)0x81, (byte)0x75, ...}'.
      value - the byte array value to set 'this' object to.

    • equalTo

      public final boolean equalTo(ObjectIdentifier that)
      Compare 'this' object to another ObjectIdentifier object to see if their contents are the same.
      that - the ObjectIdentifier object to compare 'this' object to.
      true if contents of both objects are the same.
