Detailed Description

Base class for <ACE_Message_Queue>, which is the central queueing facility for messages in the ACE framework.

For all the <ACE_Time_Value> pointer parameters the caller will block until action is possible if <timeout> == 0. Otherwise, it will wait until the absolute time specified in *<timeout> elapses.

A queue is always in one of three states: . ACTIVATED . DEACTIVATED . PULSED

Member Enumeration Documentation

anonymous enum
 

Enumeration values:
DEFAULT_HWM  Default high watermark (16 K).
DEFAULT_LWM  Default low watermark (same as high water mark).
WAS_ACTIVE 
ACTIVATED  Message queue is active and processing normally.
WAS_INACTIVE 
DEACTIVATED  Queue is deactivated; no enqueue or dequeue operations allowed.
PULSED  Message queue was pulsed; enqueue and dequeue may proceed normally.

Definition at line 50 of file Message_Queue.h.

Member Function Documentation

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::activate void    [pure virtual]
 

Reactivate the queue so that threads can enqueue and dequeue messages again.

Return values:
The  queue's state before this call.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::close void    [pure virtual]
 

Close down the message queue and release all resources.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::deactivate void    [pure virtual]
 

Deactivate the queue and wake up all threads waiting on the queue so they can continue. No messages are removed from the queue, however. Any other operations called until the queue is activated again will immediately return -1 with errno ESHUTDOWN.

Return values:
The  queue's state before this call.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::deactivated void    [pure virtual]
 

Returns 1 if the state of the queue is DEACTIVATED, and 0 if the queue's state is ACTIVATED or PULSED.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::dequeue ACE_Message_Block *&    first_item,
ACE_Time_Value   timeout = 0
[pure virtual]
 

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::dequeue_head ACE_Message_Block *&    first_item,
ACE_Time_Value   timeout = 0
[pure virtual]
 

Dequeue and return the <ACE_Message_Block *> at the head of the queue. Returns number of items in queue if the call succeeds or -1 otherwise. These calls return -1 when queue is closed, deactivated (in which case <errno> == <ESHUTDOWN>), when a signal occurs (in which case <errno> == <EINTR>, or if the time specified in timeout elapses (in which case <errno> == <EWOULDBLOCK>).

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual void ACE_Message_Queue_Base::dump void    const [pure virtual]
 

Dump the state of an object.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::enqueue ACE_Message_Block   new_item,
ACE_Time_Value   timeout = 0
[pure virtual]
 

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::enqueue_tail ACE_Message_Block   new_item,
ACE_Time_Value   timeout = 0
[pure virtual]
 

Enqueue a <ACE_Message_Block *> into the tail of the queue. Returns number of items in queue if the call succeeds or -1 otherwise. These calls return -1 when queue is closed, deactivated (in which case <errno> == <ESHUTDOWN>), when a signal occurs (in which case <errno> == <EINTR>, or if the time specified in timeout elapses (in which case <errno> == <EWOULDBLOCK>).

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::is_empty void    [pure virtual]
 

True if queue is empty, else false.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::is_full void    [pure virtual]
 

True if queue is full, else false.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual void ACE_Message_Queue_Base::message_bytes size_t    new_size [pure virtual]
 

New value of the number of total bytes on the queue, i.e., sum of the message block sizes.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual size_t ACE_Message_Queue_Base::message_bytes void    [pure virtual]
 

Number of total bytes on the queue, i.e., sum of the message block sizes.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::message_count void    [pure virtual]
 

Number of total messages on the queue.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual void ACE_Message_Queue_Base::message_length size_t    new_length [pure virtual]
 

New value of the number of total length on the queue, i.e., sum of the message block lengths.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual size_t ACE_Message_Queue_Base::message_length void    [pure virtual]
 

Number of total length on the queue, i.e., sum of the message block lengths.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual void ACE_Message_Queue_Base::notification_strategy ACE_Notification_Strategy   s [pure virtual]
 

Set the notification strategy for the <Message_Queue>.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual ACE_Notification_Strategy* ACE_Message_Queue_Base::notification_strategy void    [pure virtual]
 

Get the notification strategy for the <Message_Queue>.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

void ACE_Message_Queue_Base::operator= const ACE_Message_Queue_Base &    [private]
 

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::peek_dequeue_head ACE_Message_Block *&    first_item,
ACE_Time_Value   timeout = 0
[pure virtual]
 

Retrieve the first <ACE_Message_Block> without removing it. Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time. If the <timeout> elapses without receiving a message -1 is returned and <errno> is set to <EWOULDBLOCK>. If the queue is deactivated -1 is returned and <errno> is set to <ESHUTDOWN>. Otherwise, returns -1 on failure, else the number of items still on the queue.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

virtual int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::pulse void    [pure virtual]
 

Pulse the queue to wake up any waiting threads. Changes the queue state to PULSED; future enqueue/dequeue operations proceed as in ACTIVATED state.

Return values:
The  queue's state before this call.

Implemented in ACE_Message_Queue.

ACE_INLINE int ACE_Message_Queue_Base::state void    [virtual]
 

Returns the current state of the queue.

Reimplemented in ACE_Message_Queue.
