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.

anonymous enum

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ACE_DLL_Manager::ACE_DLL_Manager ( int  size = ACE_DLL_Manager::DEFAULT_SIZE)

Default constructor.

ACE_DLL_Manager::~ACE_DLL_Manager ( void  )


ACE_DLL_Manager::ACE_DLL_Manager ( const ACE_DLL_Manager )

Disallow copying and assignment since we don't handle these.

Member Function Documentation

int ACE_DLL_Manager::close ( void  )

Close all open dlls and deallocate memory.

int ACE_DLL_Manager::close_dll ( const ACE_TCHAR dll_name)

Close the underlying dll. Decrements the refcount.

void ACE_DLL_Manager::close_singleton ( void  )

Close the singleton instance.

ACE_DLL_Handle * ACE_DLL_Manager::find_dll ( const ACE_TCHAR dll_name) const

Find dll in handle_vector_.

ACE_DLL_Manager * ACE_DLL_Manager::instance ( int  size = ACE_DLL_Manager::DEFAULT_SIZE)

Return a unique instance.

int ACE_DLL_Manager::open ( int  size)

Allocate handle_vector_.

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::operator= ( const ACE_DLL_Manager )
int ACE_DLL_Manager::unload_dll ( ACE_DLL_Handle dll_handle,
int  force_unload = 0 

Applies strategy for unloading dll.

u_long ACE_DLL_Manager::unload_policy ( void  ) const

Returns the current per-process UNLOAD_POLICY.

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.
