Detailed Description

The PG_Property_Set captures the set of properties from a PortableGroup::Properties structure in a more usable format (a hash map), and provides methods for operating on these properties.

It supports "chains" of property sets to implement default value semantics. If a requested property is not found in this set, the default set(s) are searched. Thus, any property found at this level overrides the defaults.

See: PG_Properties_Support for more details on use of this object.

A PG_Property_Set may also be used for it's original purpose as a stand-alone helper class for extracting values from PortableGroup::Properties.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

TAO::PG_Property_Set::PG_Property_Set void   ) 

constructor: empty set with no defaults.

TAO::PG_Property_Set::PG_Property_Set const PortableGroup::Properties &property_set  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL_WITH_DEFAULTS  )  throw (CORBA::SystemException)


property_set the properties to be decoded

TAO::PG_Property_Set::PG_Property_Set const PortableGroup::Properties property_set,
throw (CORBA::SystemException)

constructor with defaults

property_set the properties to be decoded
defaults a propert set decoder that supplies default values.

TAO::PG_Property_Set::PG_Property_Set PG_Property_Set defaults  ) 

constructor with defaults, but no properties (yet) (note this is not a copy constructor)

defaults a propert set decoder that supplies default values.

Member Function Documentation

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::clear  ) 

Clear properties Does not clear default properties.

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::decode const PortableGroup::Properties &property_set  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL  )  throw (CORBA::SystemException)

Decode additional properties Duplicate values replace previous values.

property_set the properties to be decoded

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::export_properties PortableGroup::Properties property_set  )  const

Export the properties to a PortableGroup::Properties

This method is intended to be used to implement the PropertyManager::get_*_properties methods. If you want to access the properties for any purpose other than exporting them across a CORBA interface, it is much more efficient to use the find interface.

int TAO::PG_Property_Set::find const ACE_CString key,
const PortableGroup::Value *&  pValue

general purpose find. returns a pointer to an Any if templated methods were available: template <typename type=""> int find (const ACE_CString & key, TYPE & value) const; instead, see global function below

key the (simple) name of the property
pValue an out parameter to receive a pointer to the Any containing the value
boolean true if found

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::merge_properties ValueMap merged_values  )  const [private]

populate a ValueMap with the properties known to this decoder including but overriding default values

PG_Property_Set& TAO::PG_Property_Set::operator= const PG_Property_Set rhs  )  [private]

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::remove const PortableGroup::Properties property_set  )  throw (CORBA::SystemException)

void TAO::PG_Property_Set::set_property const char *  name,
const PortableGroup::Value &value  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL

set or replace a single property

Member Data Documentation

PG_Property_Set* TAO::PG_Property_Set::defaults_ [private]

a parent to another property decoder that provides default values these can be chained indefinitely. @ TODO: reference counted pointers would be a good idea here.

TAO_SYNCH_MUTEX TAO::PG_Property_Set::internals_ [mutable, private]

Protect internal state.
