Detailed Description

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL, class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
class ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >

Primary interface for application message processing, as well as input and output message queueing.

Unlike ACE_Task, these class doesn't have the ability to be a part of a Stream chain. I.e. You cannot (yet) chain modules based on ACE_Task_Ex.

Todo:
: We can merge ACE_Task and ACE_Task_Ex to be one class. something like that: template <ACE_SYNCH_DECL, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE = ACE_Message_Block> class ACE_Task : public ACE_Task_Base { // use here the code from ACE_Task_Ex using ACE_Message_Queue_Ex };
Now specialized version of ACE_Task with ACE_Message_Block as its ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE...

template <ACE_SYNCH_DECL> class ACE_Task <ACE_SYNCH_USE, ACE_Message_Block> : public ACE_Task_Base { // put here the good old ACE_Task code };

When User (and legacy code) write ACE_Task<ACE_MT_SYNCH>, specialized ACE_Task code is in action.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::ACE_Task_Ex ACE_Thread_Manager thr_mgr = 0,
MESSAGE_QUEUE_EX mq = 0
 

Initialize a Task, supplying a thread manager and a message queue. If the user doesn't supply a ACE_Message_Queue pointer then we'll allocate one dynamically. Otherwise, we'll use the one passed as a parameter.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::~ACE_Task_Ex void   )  [virtual]
 

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::can_put ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *   ) 
 

Tests whether we can enqueue a message without blocking.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
void ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::dump void   )  const
 

Dump the state of an object.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::flush u_long  flag = ACE_Task_Flags::ACE_FLUSHALL  ) 
 

Flush the task's queue, i.e., free all of the enqueued message blocks and releases any threads blocked on the queue. Note that if this conflicts with the C++ iostream <flush> function, just rewrite the iostream function as ::<flush>.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::getq ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *&  mb,
ACE_Time_Value timeout = 0
 

Extract the first message from the queue (blocking). Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time. Returns number of items in queue if the call succeeds or -1 otherwise.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_Module< ACE_SYNCH_USE > * ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::module void   )  const
 

Return the Task's Module if there is one, else returns 0.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE void ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::msg_queue MESSAGE_QUEUE_EX  ) 
 

Sets the message queue associated with this task.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_Message_Queue_Ex< ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE, ACE_SYNCH_USE > * ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::msg_queue void   ) 
 

Gets the message queue associated with this task.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
const ACE_TCHAR * ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::name void   )  const
 

Return the name of the enclosing Module if there's one associated with the Task, else returns 0.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE void ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::next ACE_Task< ACE_SYNCH_USE > *   ) 
 

Set next Task pointer.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE ACE_Task< ACE_SYNCH_USE > * ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::next void   ) 
 

Get next Task pointer.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
void ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::operator= const ACE_Task_Ex< _ACE_SYNCH, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE > &   )  [private]
 

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::put_next ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *  msg,
ACE_Time_Value timeout = 0
 

Transfer message to the adjacent ACE_Task_Ex in a ACE_Stream. Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::putq ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *  ,
ACE_Time_Value timeout = 0
 

Insert message into the message queue. Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::reply ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *  ,
ACE_Time_Value timeout = 0
 

Turn the message around and send it back down the Stream. Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_Task< ACE_SYNCH_USE > * ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::sibling void   ) 
 

Alwasy return 0.

FIXME

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE int ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::ungetq ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE *  ,
ACE_Time_Value timeout = 0
 

Return a message to the queue. Note that <timeout> uses <{absolute}> time rather than <{relative}> time.

template<ACE_SYNCH_DECL , class ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE>
ACE_INLINE void ACE_Task_Ex<, ACE_MESSAGE_TYPE >::water_marks ACE_IO_Cntl_Msg::ACE_IO_Cntl_Cmds  ,
size_t 
 

Manipulate watermarks.
