OracleSiteMapProvider Class

This class allows ASP.NET applications to retrieve site map information from an Oracle database.

Class Inheritance

System.Object

  System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderBase

    System.Web.SiteMapProvider

      System.Web.StaticSiteMapProvider

        Oracle.Web.SiteMap.OracleSiteMapProvider

Declaration

// C#
Public class OracleSiteMapProvider: StaticSiteMapProvider, IDisposable

Thread Safety

All public static methods are thread-safe, although instance members are not guaranteed to be thread-safe.

Remarks

This class allows ASP.NET applications to read and load site map information from an Oracle database.

Examples

The following is a web.config example for an ASP.NET application that uses OracleSiteMapProvider as the default provider. This configuration uses the connection string and default attribute values specified in the machine.config file.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
  <system.web>
    <siteMap defaultProvider="OracleSiteMapProvider"/>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

The following is a web.config example for an ASP.NET application that uses OracleSiteMapProvider as the default provider, with customized settings and an application-specific connection string:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration xmlns=
  "http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0">
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="my_sitemap_app_con_string" connectionString=
      "User Id=scott;Password=tiger;Data Source=Oracle"/>
  </connectionStrings>
  <system.web>
    <!-- Enable and customize OracleSiteMapProvider -->
    <siteMap defaultProvider="CustomOracleSiteMapProvider">
      <providers>
        <add name="CustomOracleSiteMapProvider"
             type="Oracle.Web.SiteMap.OracleSiteMapProvider,
                   Oracle.Web, Version=2.111.6.20, Culture=neutral,
                   PublicKeyToken=89b483f429c47342"
             connectionStringName="my_sitemap_app_con_string"
             applicationName="my_sitemap_app"
             securityTrimmingEnabled="false"/>
      </providers>
    </siteMap>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

Note that the applicationName attribute should be set to a unique value for each ASP.NET application.

Namespace: Oracle.Web.SiteMap

Assembly: Oracle.Web.dll

Overload List:

OracleSiteMapProvider()

This constructor instantiates a new instance of the OracleSiteMapProvider class.

Declaration

// C#
public OracleSiteMapProvider();

Remarks

The OracleSiteMapProvider constructor is called by ASP.NET to create an instance of the OracleSiteMapProvider class as specified in the configuration file for the application. Initialization values for the OracleSiteMapProvider constructor are passed through the Initialize method.

This constructor is not intended to be used directly by the application.

ApplicationName

This property gets or sets the name of the application that differentiates site map data for different applications.

Declaration

// C#
public string ApplicationName{get; set;}

Property Value

The name of the application. If the applicationName attribute is not specified in the application configuration file, or if the value is an empty string, then this property is set to the application virtual path.

Exceptions

HttpException - The ApplicationName property was set by a caller that does not have high ASP.NET hosting permission.

System.Configuration.Provider.ProviderException - The application name supplied exceeds 256 characters.

ArgumentException - The application name supplied is an empty string or a null reference.

Remarks

The string value of the ApplicationName property is used for organizing user information.

Multiple ASP.NET applications can use the same data source and create duplicate user names because user information is stored uniquely for each application name. This property can be set programmatically, or it can be set declaratively in the configuration file for the Web application using the applicationName attribute. The attribute name in the configuration file is case-sensitive.

The ApplicationName property is not thread-safe. It is recommended that program code not allow users to set the ApplicationName property in Web applications.

CommandTimeout

This property gets the number of seconds that the command is allowed to execute before it is terminated with an exception.

Declaration

// C#
public int CommandTimeout {get;}
 

Property Value

An int.

Remarks

To customize a provider, ASP.NET developers can set an integer value for this property through the web.config file using the commandTimeout attribute.

The default value is 30 seconds. The attribute name in the configuration file is case-sensitive.
