Detailed Description

Shows file metadata as a list to make it easy to copy and paste. Typically shows the same data that can also be found in the ResultViewer table, just a different order and allows the full path to be visible in the bottom area.

DataContentViewer org.sleuthkit.autopsy.contentviewers.Metadata.createInstance ( )

Create and return a new instance of your viewer. The reason that this is needed is because the specific viewer modules will be found via NetBeans Lookup and the type will only be DataContentViewer. This method is used to get an instance of your specific type.

Component org.sleuthkit.autopsy.contentviewers.Metadata.getComponent ( )

Return the Swing Component to display. Implementations of this method that extend JPanel and do a 'return this;'. Otherwise return an internal instance of the JPanel.

void org.sleuthkit.autopsy.contentviewers.Metadata.initComponents ( )

int org.sleuthkit.autopsy.contentviewers.Metadata.isPreferred ( Node  node)

Checks whether the given viewer is preferred for the Node. This is a bit subjective, but the idea is that Autopsy wants to display the most relevant tab. The more generic the viewer, the lower the return value should be. This will only be called on viewers that support the given node (i.e., isSupported() has already returned true).

The following are some examples of the current levels in use. If the selected node is an artifact, the level may be determined by both the artifact and its associated file.

Level 8 - Used for viewers that summarize a data artifact and display a relevant subset to help the examiner decide if they should look into it further. Not currently used by any modules, but an example would be a module that summarizes an email message.

Level 7 - Used for data artifact viewers. These have higher priority over file content viewers because a Node will likely have the ‘source’ file for a data artifact and we want to give the artifact priority. Currently used by the Data Artifacts viewer.

Level 6 - Used for type-specific file content viewers that summarize the file content and display a relevant subset. These viewers help the examiner determine if the file is worth looking into further. Examples of this would be Video Triage Module that displays a subset of a video or a document.

Level 5 - Used for type-specific file content viewers that are optimized for that type, such as displaying an image or a PDF file with images and proper layout. Currently used by the Application viewer.

Level 4 - Used for type-specific file content viewers that are not optimized. For example, displaying only the plain text from a PDF would be at this level, but displaying the same PDF with images and layout would be level 5. Currently used by the Text viewer that returns text from Solr.

Level 3 - Used for viewing Data Artifacts that refer to files and the user may want to view the files more than the artifact itself. This is currently used by the Data Artifact viewer when a Web Download artifact is selected.

Level 2 - Used for viewing Analysis Results. This is a lower priority than Data Artifacts and file content because Analysis Results are used to identify content of interest and therefore the content itself should be shown. Currently used by the Analysis Results viewer. * Level 1 - Used for metadata viewers that give more information and context about the primary file or artifact. Currently used by Metadata, Annotations, Context, Other Occurrences, and OS Account.

Level 0 - Used for general purpose file content viewers that are not file specific and will always be enabled. Currently used by Text/Strings and Hex.

an int (0-10) higher return means the viewer has higher priority

boolean org.sleuthkit.autopsy.contentviewers.Metadata.isSupported ( Node  node)

Checks whether the given node is supported by the viewer. This will be used to enable or disable the tab for the viewer.
