Subscription Class

The subscription class encapsulates the information and operations necessary for registering a subscriber for notification.

Table 13-46 Enumerated Values Used by Subscription Class

Attribute Options
Presentation
  • PRES_DEFAULT indicates that the event notification should be in default format.

  • PRES_XML indicates that the event notification should be in XML format.

Protocol
  • PROTO_CBK indicates that the client will receive notifications through the default system protocol.

  • PROTO_MAIL indicates that the client will receive notifications through e-mail, like xyz@oracle.com. The database does not check if the e-mail is valid.

  • PROTO_SERVER indicates that the client will receive notifications through an invoked PL/SQL procedure in the database, like schema.procedure. The subscriber must have the appropriate permissions on the procedure.

  • PROTO_HTTP indicates that the client will receive notifications through an HTTP URL, like http://www.oracle.com:80. The database does not check if the URL is valid.

Namespace
  • NS_ANONYMOUS indicates that the registrations will be made in an anonymous namespace.

  • NS_AQ indicates that the registrations will be made in the Oracle Streams Advanced Queuing namespace.

env
The Environment.
sub
The original Subscription.


getCallbackContext()

Retrieves the callback context.

Syntax

void* getCallbackContext() const;

getDatabaseServersCount()

Returns the number of database servers in which the client is interested for the registration.

Syntax

unsigned int getDatabaseServersCount() const;

getDatabaseServerNames()

Returns the names of all the database servers where the client registered an interest for notification.

Syntax

vector<string> getDatabaseServerNames() const;

getNotifyCallback()

Returns the pointer to the callback function registered for this Subscription.

getPayload()

Retrieves the payload that has been set on the Subscription object prior to posting.

Syntax

Bytes getCPayload() const;

getSubscriptionName()

Retrieves the name of the subscription.

Syntax
