Study

class Study(*args)

Study.

Available constructors:

Study()

Study(fileName)

Parameters
fileNamestr

Name of the file used by the underlying storage manager, a XMLStorageManager in this case.

Notes

The study allows the user to save all its data to a structure looking like a map. The data are copied verbatim to the study. This is not a link, so future modification of the original won’t affect the data saved in the study. To update the data saved in the study, the user has to explicitely save it again. Study allows the user to retrieve previously saved objects either by their name if a name was defined for the object or by their Id.

Examples

>>> import openturns as ot

Create a Study object:

>>> myStudy = ot.Study()
>>> myStudy.setStorageManager(ot.XMLStorageManager('myStudy.xml'))
>>> myStudy2 = ot.Study('myStudy2.xml')

Add PersistentObjects to the study:

>>> # a Point:
>>> point = ot.Point(3, 0.0)
>>> point[0] = 10.0
>>> point[1] = 11.0
>>> point[2] = 12.0
>>> myStudy.add('point', point)
>>> # a simulation result:
>>> simulationResult = ot.ProbabilitySimulationResult(ot.Event(), 0.5, 0.01, 150, 4)
>>> myStudy.add('simulationResult', simulationResult)

Get objects from the study:

>>> print(myStudy.getObject('point'))
[10,11,12]

Save the Study:

>>> myStudy.save()

Create a new Study object:

>>> myStudy = ot.Study()
>>> myStudy.setStorageManager(ot.XMLStorageManager('myStudy.xml'))

Load data from the study:

>>> myStudy.load()

Create data from the ones stored in the study:

>>> # a Point:
>>> otherPoint = ot.Point()
>>> myStudy.fillObject('point', otherPoint)
>>> # a simulation result:
>>> otherSimulationResult = ot.ProbabilitySimulationResult()
>>> myStudy.fillObject('simulationResult', otherSimulationResult)

Get information from the study:

>>> myStudy.printLabels()
'point;simulationResult'

Remove data:

>>> myStudy.hasObject('simulationResult')
True
>>> myStudy.remove('simulationResult')
>>> myStudy.hasObject('simulationResult')
False
