Detailed Description

This class is a singleton and serves as a factory and repository for instances of ACE_DLL_Handle.

This class is a singleton whose lifetime is managed by the ACE_Framework_Repository. Although it is normally meant to be used directly only by ACE_DLL, applications can call the unload_policy() methods in order get/set the the dll unload policy. Unload policies include per_process/per-dll and eager/lazy. Dlls can export set their own policy by using the ACE_DLL_UNLOAD_POLICY macro found in config-all.h. If a dll choses to set an unload policy, it will be used when the per-dll policy (the default) is in effect. If the per-dll policy is in effect and a dll has not chosen to set a policy, the current per-process policy will be used.

The following policy macros are provided in config-all.h:

ACE_DLL_UNLOAD_POLICY_PER_PROCESS - Per-process policy that unloads dlls eagerly.

ACE_DLL_UNLOAD_POLICY_PER_DLL - Apply policy on a per-dll basis. If the dll doesn't use one of the macros below, the current per-process policy will be used.

ACE_DLL_UNLOAD_POLICY_LAZY - Don't unload dll when refcount reaches zero, i.e., wait for either an explicit unload request or program exit.

ACE_DLL_UNLOAD_POLICY_DEFAULT - Default policy allows dlls to control their own destinies, but will unload those that don't make a choice eagerly.

ACE_DLL_Handle * ACE_DLL_Manager::open_dll ( const ACE_TCHAR dll_name,
int  openmode,

Factory for ACE_DLL_Handle objects. If one already exits, its refcount is incremented.

void ACE_DLL_Manager::unload_policy ( u_long  unload_policy  ) 

Set the per-process UNLOAD_POLICY. If the policy is changed from LAZY to EAGER, then it will also unload any dlls with zero refcounts.

u_long ACE_DLL_Manager::unload_policy ( void   )  const

Returns the current per-process UNLOAD_POLICY.
