Detailed Description

Table that maintains the set of ObjectKey's seen by the ORB.

The ORB maintains one table for the whole ORB. ObjectKeys generated by the ORB or the ones seen by the ORB from remote ORB's are stored here. The ObjectKeys are stored through a wrapper which encapsulates the refcount on them. This class actually provides the synchronization mechanism for manipulating the reference counts on the object keys provided by the wrapper class.

This class does not offer a find () call with a reason. The call to bind () will return a pointer which is expected to be cached by the client/caller and use the pointer in every invocation.

Note:
This class uses the ACE_RB_Tree to maintain the table of ObjectKeys. The RB_Tree has good insertion and lookup properties. Its Iteration properties are not that good, but we dont need to do much iteration unless we are closing down the table.

The reasons to use RB_Tree are its good dynamic properties. We should try to strategize the class to use either a Hash_Map or a RB_Tree based on some runtime option. For that we need an adapter class in ACE, like an ACE_Lock_Adapter class. We will do that if our instrumentation shows the need for it.

Member Function Documentation

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::bind const ObjectKey key,
Refcounted_ObjectKey *&  key_new
 

Bind the ObjectKey in the table.

Bind an ObjectKey in the table and return a pointer to the Refcounted_ObjectKey which the client can use. If the ObjectKey is already available in the table, this operation just increments the refcount on the ObjectKey. If the ObjectKey is new it is bounded to the table. Returns a 0 on success and a -1 on failure.

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::bind_i const ObjectKey key,
Refcounted_ObjectKey *&  key_new

Implementation for bind ().

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::destroy void   ) 
 

Iterates and unbinds the contents of the table.

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::init TAO_ORB_Core orb  ) 
 

Initialize method that sets up the underlying lock and other related stuff.

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::unbind TAO::Refcounted_ObjectKey *&  key  ) 
 

Unbind an ObjectKey from the table.

int TAO::ObjectKey_Table::unbind_i Refcounted_ObjectKey *&  key  )  [protected]
 

Implementation for unbind ().
