Detailed Description

Abstract base class for the filter hierarchy.

The per-consumer filtering mechanisms. The EC needs to filter data passed to the consumers, so it can correctly satisfy its subscription requirements. This filtering can include correlations, sequences, timeouts, etc. each consumer can request different filtering criteria. Different filtering objects are associated with each consumer, the filters are organized in a hierarchical structure, corresponding to the subscription "expression" that the events must satisfy. The hierarchy is constructed using the "Builder" pattern.

Memory Management

It does *not* assume ownership of its parent.

virtual int TAO_EC_Filter::add_dependencies const RtecEventComm::EventHeader header,
const TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[pure virtual]
 

This is used for computing the scheduling dependencies:

Leaf filters check if the header could be matched, similar to the can_match() method; if it does they return 1, and 0 otherwise. Intermediate nodes always return 0.

This is used to build precise dependencies between the suppliers and the leaf of the filters that accept that event. Notice that only the nodes doing scheduling recurse through the list, so in configurations that do no require scheduling the recursion stops fairly soon.

void TAO_EC_Filter::adopt_child TAO_EC_Filter child  ) 
 

Become the parent of child.

TAO_EC_Filter::ChildrenIterator TAO_EC_Filter::begin void   )  const [virtual]
 

STL-like iterators Filters follow the Composite pattern. All filters expose the same interface as if they all had children, but for simple filters the iterators return an empty range.

virtual int TAO_EC_Filter::can_match const RtecEventComm::EventHeader header  )  const [pure virtual]
 

Returns 0 if an event with that header could never be accepted. This can used by the suppliers to filter out consumers that couldn't possibly be interested in their events. The rt_info and

virtual int TAO_EC_Filter::filter const RtecEventComm::EventSet event,
TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[pure virtual]
 

Filter this event, returns 1 if the event is accepted, 0 otherwise. Notice that there are two versions of the method, if the event is not const then filter can take ownership of the event.

Attention:
There seems to be a disparity in interfaces: Supplier always push event sets of size 1 to the EC_ProxyPushSupplier, and EC_Filters do not implement handling of sets of more than 1 event. Then, why is this not enforced by the interface by having EC_ProxyPushSupplier take an event rather than a set?

Obtain the QOS information for this filter, the default implementation returns an invalid QOS. Only the filters that support scheduling information implement this method.
