RefAny Class

The RefAny class is designed to support a reference to any type. Its primary purpose is to handle generic references and allow conversions of Ref in the type hierarchy. A RefAny object can be used as an intermediary between any two types, Ref<x> and Ref<y>, where x and y are different types.

Table 13-36 Summary of RefAny Methods

Method Summary

RefAny()

Constructor for RefAny class.

clear()

Clears the reference.

getConnection()

Returns the connection this ref was created from.

isNull()

Checks if the RefAny object is NULL.

markDelete()

Marks the object as deleted.

operator=()

Assignment operator for RefAny.

operator==()

Checks if this RefAny object is equal to a specified RefAny.

operator!=()

Checks if not equal.

unmarkDelete()

Unmarks the object as deleted.



RefAny()

A Ref<T> can always be converted to a RefAny; there is a method to perform the conversion in the Ref<T> template. Each Ref<T> has a constructor and assignment operator that takes a reference to RefAny.

Syntax Description
RefAny();
Creates a NULL RefAny.
RefAny(
   const Connection *sessptr,
   const OCIRef *ref);
Creates a RefAny from a session pointer and a reference.
RefAny(
   const RefAny& src);
Creates a RefAny as a copy of another RefAny object.

Parameter Description
sessptr
Session pointer
ref
A reference
src
The source RefAny object to be assigned


clear()

This method clears the reference.

Syntax

void clear();

getConnection()

Returns the connection from which this reference was instantiated.

Syntax

const Connection* getConnection() const;

isNull()

Returns TRUE if the object pointed to by this ref is NULL else FALSE.

Syntax

bool isNull() const;

markDelete()

This method marks the referred object as deleted.

Syntax

void markDelete();

operator=()

Assignment operator for RefAny.

Syntax

RefAny& operator=(
   const RefAny& src);
Parameter Description
src
The source RefAny object to be assigned.


operator==()

Compares this ref with a RefAny object and returns TRUE if both the refs are referring to the same object in the cache, otherwise it returns FALSE.

Syntax

bool operator== (
   const RefAny &refAnyR) const;
Parameter Description
refAnyR
RefAny object to which the comparison is made.


operator!=()

Compares this ref with the RefAny object and returns TRUE if both the refs are not referring to the same object in the cache, otherwise it returns FALSE.

Syntax

bool operator!= (
   const RefAny &refAnyR) const;
Parameter Description
refAnyR
RefAny object to which the comparison is made.


unmarkDelete()

This method unmarks the referred object as dirty.

Syntax

void unmarkDelete();
