Detailed Description


Per-objref data includes the (protocol-specific) Profile, which is handled by placing it into a subclass of this type along with data that may be used in protocol-specific caching schemes. The type ID (the data specified by CORBA 2.0 that gets exposed "on the wire", and in stringified objrefs) is held by this module. The stub APIs are member functions of this type.

int TAO_Stub::get_profile_ior_info TAO_MProfile profile,

THREAD-SAFE Create the IOR info.


All objref representations know how to hash themselves and compare themselves for equivalence to others. It's easily possible to have two objrefs that are distinct copies of data that refers/points to the same remote object (i.e. are equivalent).

CORBA::Boolean TAO_Stub::is_equivalent CORBA::Object_ptr  other_obj  ) 

Implement the is_equivalent() method for the CORBA::Object.

ACE_INLINE TAO_MProfile * TAO_Stub::make_profiles void   ) 

Copy of the profile list, user must free memory when done. although the user can call make_profiles() then reorder the list and give it back to TAO_Stub.

ACE_INLINE TAO_Profile * TAO_Stub::next_forward_profile void   )  [private]

NON-THREAD-SAFE. utility method for next_profile.

ACE_INLINE TAO_Profile * TAO_Stub::next_profile void   ) 

THREAD SAFE. If forward_profiles is null then this will get the next profile in the base_profiles list. If forward is not null then this will get the next profile for the list of forwarding profiles. If all profiles have been tried then 0 is returned and profile_in_use_ is set to the first profile in the base_profiles list.

ACE_INLINE TAO_Profile * TAO_Stub::next_profile_i void   ) 

NON-THREAD SAFE version of next_profile (void).

ACE_INLINE CORBA::Boolean TAO_Stub::next_profile_retry void   )

ACE_INLINE TAO_ORB_Core * TAO_Stub::orb_core void   )  const


ACE_INLINE TAO_Profile * TAO_Stub::profile_in_use void   ) 

returns a pointer to the profile_in_use object. This object retains ownership of this profile.

Return the Profile lock. This lock can be used at places where profiles need to be edited.

ACE_INLINE CORBA::ULong & TAO_Stub::refcount void   ) 

Return number of outstanding references to this object.

This method is meant to be used by the CORBA::Object implementation to allow it to directly manipulate the reference count.

ACE_INLINE TAO_SYNCH_MUTEX & TAO_Stub::refcount_lock void   ) 

Return a reference to the reference count lock.

This method is meant to be used by the CORBA::Object implementation to allow it to directly manipulate the reference count.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Stub::reset_base  )  [private]

NON-THREAD-SAFE. Utility method which resets or initializes the base_profile list and forward flags.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Stub::reset_forward  )  [private]

NOT THREAD-SAFE. Utility method which pops all forward profile lists and resets the forward_profiles_ pointer.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Stub::reset_profiles void   ) 

THREAD SAFE this method will reset the base profile list to reference the first profile and if there are anmy existing forward profiles they are reset.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Stub::reset_profiles_i void   ) 

NON-THREAD SAFE version of reset_profiles (void);.

ACE_INLINE void TAO_Stub::servant_orb CORBA::ORB_ptr  orb  ) 

Accesor and mutator for the servant ORB. Notice that the muatator assumes the ownership of the passed in ORB and the accesor does not return a copy of the orb since the accessing of the ORB is considered temporary.

Member Data Documentation

TAO_MProfile TAO_Stub::base_profiles_ [protected]

Ordered list of profiles for this object.

const CORBA::Boolean TAO_Stub::collocation_opt_ [protected]

This should be the same value as cached in the ORB_Core. The reason for caching this helps our generated code, notably the stubs to be decoubled from ORB_Core. Please do not move it away.

TAO_MProfile* TAO_Stub::forward_profiles_ [protected]

The list of forwarding profiles. This is actually implemented as a linked list of TAO_MProfile objects.

IOP::IOR* TAO_Stub::forwarded_ior_info_ [protected]

Forwarded IOR info.

IOP::IOR* TAO_Stub::ior_info_ [protected]

The ior info. This is needed for GIOP 1.2, as the clients could receive an exception from the server asking for this info. The exception that the client receives is LOC_NEEDS_ADDRESSING_MODE. The data is set up here to be passed on to Invocation classes when they receive an exception. This info is for the base profiles that this class stores

CORBA::ORB_var TAO_Stub::orb_ [protected]

Why do we need both a reference to the ORB_Core and its ORB? It think the memory management rules for the ORB_Core changed, in the good old days it was the CORBA::ORB class who owned the ORB_Core, now it is the other way around....

TAO_ORB_Core_Auto_Ptr TAO_Stub::orb_core_ [protected]

Automatically manage the ORB_Core reference count.

The ORB_Core cannot go away until the object references it creates are destroyed. There are multiple reasons for this, but in particular, the allocators used for some of the TAO_Profile objects contained on each TAO_Stub are owned by the TAO_ORB_Core.

This must be the first field of the class, otherwise the TAO_ORB_Core is destroyed too early!

TAO_Policy_Set* TAO_Stub::policies_ [protected]

The policy overrides in this object, if nil then use the default policies.

TAO_Profile* TAO_Stub::profile_in_use_ [protected]

This is the profile that we are currently sending/receiving with.

ACE_Lock* TAO_Stub::profile_lock_ptr_ [protected]

Mutex to protect access to the forwarding profile.

size_t TAO_Stub::profile_success_ [protected]

Have we successfully talked to the forward profile yet?

CORBA::ULong TAO_Stub::refcount_ [protected]

Number of outstanding references to this object.

TAO_SYNCH_MUTEX TAO_Stub::refcount_lock_ [protected]

Mutex to protect reference count.

CORBA::ORB_var TAO_Stub::servant_orb_ [protected]

If this stub refers to a collocated object then we need to hold on to the servant's ORB (which may be different from the client ORB) so that, 1. we know that the ORB will stay alive long enough, and, 2. we can search for the servant/POA's status starting from the ORB's RootPOA.

CORBA::String_var TAO_Stub::type_id

All objref representations carry around a type ID.
