Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescription
(String record)Signal the end of a record based on the content of the current record.
(String record)Give the policy a chance to post-process a complete record, e.g.
(String record)Pre-process a record before another line is appended, in the case of a multi-line record.
(String record)Signal the end of a record based on the content of the current record. During the course of processing, each time this method returns false, the next line read is appended onto it (building the record). The input is what you would expect from
BufferedReader.readLine()- i.e. no line separator character at the end. But it might have line separators embedded in it.
