Detailed Description

Defines the Endpoint interface in the Pluggable Protocol framework.

Lightweight encapsulation of addressing information for a single acceptor endpoint. In other words, Endpoint represents a single point of contact for the server, and is the smallest unit of addressing information necessary for a client to connect to a server. A Profile contains one or more Endpoints, i.e., knows of one or more ways to contact server(s).


Constructor & Destructor Documentation

ACE_INLINE TAO_Endpoint::TAO_Endpoint CORBA::ULong  tag,
CORBA::Short  priority = TAO_INVALID_PRIORITY
 

Constructor.

TAO_Endpoint::~TAO_Endpoint void   )  [virtual]
 

Destructor.

TAO_Endpoint::TAO_Endpoint const TAO_Endpoint  )  [private]
 

Endpoints should not be copied.


Member Function Documentation

virtual int TAO_Endpoint::addr_to_string char *  buffer,
size_t  length
[pure virtual]
 

Return a string representation for the address.

The purpose of this method is to provide a general interface to the underlying address object's addr_to_string method. This allows the protocol implementor to select the appropriate string format.

Returns:
-1 if buffer is too small.

Implemented in TAO_IIOP_Endpoint.

virtual TAO_Endpoint* TAO_Endpoint::duplicate void   )  [pure virtual]
 

This method returns a deep copy of the corresponding endpoints by allocating memory.

Implemented in TAO_IIOP_Endpoint.

virtual CORBA::ULong TAO_Endpoint::hash void   )  [pure virtual]
 

Return a hash value for this object.

Implemented in TAO_IIOP_Endpoint.

virtual CORBA::Boolean TAO_Endpoint::is_equivalent const TAO_Endpoint other_endpoint  )  [pure virtual]
 

Returns:
true if this endpoint is equivalent to other_endpoint.

Implemented in TAO_IIOP_Endpoint.

virtual TAO_Endpoint* TAO_Endpoint::next void   )  [pure virtual]
 

Endpoints can be stringed in a list.

Returns:
The next endpoint in the list, if any.

Implemented in TAO_IIOP_Endpoint.

void TAO_Endpoint::operator= const TAO_Endpoint  )  [private]
 

Returns:
true if this endpoint is equivalent to other_endpoint.

ACE_INLINE CORBA::Short TAO_Endpoint::priority void   )  const
 

<priority_> attribute getter.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Endpoint::priority CORBA::Short  priority  ) 
 

<priority_> attribute setter.

ACE_INLINE CORBA::ULong TAO_Endpoint::tag void   )  const
 

IOP protocol tag accessor.


Member Data Documentation

TAO_SYNCH_MUTEX TAO_Endpoint::addr_lookup_lock_ [mutable, protected]
 

Lock for the address lookup.

Todo:
This lock should be strategized so that we dont lock in single threaded configurations. It is not possible to do this now as most of the information is available in the ORB_Core which is not available here.

CORBA::ULong TAO_Endpoint::hash_val_ [protected]
 

Cache the hash value.

CORBA::Short TAO_Endpoint::priority_ [protected]
 

CORBA priority of the acceptor this Endpoint is representing. This is part of TAO 'prioritized endpoints' architecture, and is currently used for RTCORBA only.

CORBA::ULong TAO_Endpoint::tag_ [protected]
 

IOP tag, identifying the protocol for which this endpoint contains addressing info.
