Detailed Description

A null filter.

This filter accepts any kind of event, it is useful for the implementation: a) Consumers that accept all events b) Consumers that trust the filtering done at the Supplier layer. c) Event Channels that don't do filtering (such as CosEC backends)

virtual int TAO_EC_Null_Filter::add_dependencies const RtecEventComm::EventHeader header,
const TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[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.

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

int TAO_EC_Null_Filter::can_match const RtecEventComm::EventHeader header  )  const [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

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

void TAO_EC_Null_Filter::clear void   )  [virtual]
 

Clear any saved state, must reset and assume no events have been received.

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

int TAO_EC_Null_Filter::filter const RtecEventComm::EventSet event,
TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[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?

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

int TAO_EC_Null_Filter::filter_nocopy RtecEventComm::EventSet event,
TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[virtual]
 

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

CORBA::ULong TAO_EC_Null_Filter::max_event_size void   )  const [virtual]
 

Returns the maximum size of the events pushed by this filter.

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

void TAO_EC_Null_Filter::push const RtecEventComm::EventSet event,
TAO_EC_QOS_Info &qos_info  ACE_ENV_ARG_DECL
[virtual]
 

This is called by the children when they accept an event and which to pass it up. Notice that there are two versions of the method, if the event is not const then filter can take ownership of the event.

Implements TAO_EC_Filter.

void TAO_EC_Null_Filter::push_nocopy RtecEventComm::EventSet event,
