All Implemented Interfaces:
ExternalizableLite, PortableObject, PriorityTask, Filter, EntryFilter, IndexAwareFilter, java.io.Serializable

public class PriorityFilter
extends AbstractPriorityTask
implements IndexAwareFilter, ExternalizableLite, PortableObject

PriorityFilter is used to explicitly control the scheduling priority and timeouts for execution of filter-based methods.

For example, let's assume that there is a cache that belongs to a partitioned cache service configured with a request-timeout and task-timeout of 5 seconds. Also assume that we are willing to wait longer for a particular rarely executed parallel query that does not employ any indexes. Then we could override the default timeout values by using the PriorityFilter as follows:

   EqualsFilter   filterStandard = new LikeFilter("getComments", "%fail%");
   PriorityFilter filterPriority = new PriorityFilter(filterStandard);
   filterPriority.setExecutionTimeoutMillis(PriorityTask.TIMEOUT_NONE);
   filterPriority.setRequestTimeoutMillis(PriorityTask.TIMEOUT_NONE);
   Set setEntries = cache.entrySet(filterPriority);
 

This is an advanced feature which should be used judiciously.

Constructor Detail

PriorityFilter

public PriorityFilter()
Default constructor (necessary for the ExternalizableLite interface).

PriorityFilter

public PriorityFilter(IndexAwareFilter filter)
Construct a PriorityFilter.
Parameters:
filter - the filter wrapped by this PriorityFilter

Method Detail

evaluate

public boolean evaluate(java.lang.Object o)
Apply the test to the object.
Specified by:
evaluate in interface Filter
Parameters:
o - the object to test
Returns:
true if the test passes, false otherwise

evaluateEntry

public boolean evaluateEntry(java.util.Map.Entry entry)
Apply the test to a Map Entry.
Specified by:
evaluateEntry in interface EntryFilter
Parameters:
entry - the Map Entry to evaluate; never null
Returns:
true if the test passes, false otherwise

calculateEffectiveness

public int calculateEffectiveness(java.util.Map mapIndexes,
                                  java.util.Set setKeys)
Given a Map of available indexes, determine if this IndexAwareFilter can use any of the indexes to assist in its processing, and if so, determine how effective the use of that index would be.

The returned value is an effectiveness estimate of how well this filter can use the specified indexes to filter the specified keys. An operation that requires no more than a single access to the index content (i.e. Equals, NotEquals) has an effectiveness of one. Evaluation of a single entry is assumed to have an effectiveness that depends on the index implementation and is usually measured as a constant number of the single operations. This number is referred to as evaluation cost.

If the effectiveness of a filter evaluates to a number larger than the keySet.size() * <evaluation cost> then a user could avoid using the index and iterate through the keySet calling evaluate rather then applyIndex.

Specified by:
calculateEffectiveness in interface IndexAwareFilter
Parameters:
mapIndexes - the available MapIndex objects keyed by the related ValueExtractor; read-only
setKeys - the set of keys that will be filtered; read-only
Returns:
an effectiveness estimate of how well this filter can use the specified indexes to filter the specified keys

applyIndex

public Filter applyIndex(java.util.Map mapIndexes,
                         java.util.Set setKeys)
Filter remaining keys using a Map of available indexes.

The filter is responsible for removing all keys from the passed set of keys that the applicable indexes can prove should be filtered. If the filter does not fully evaluate the remaining keys using just the index information, it must return a filter (which may be an EntryFilter) that can complete the task using an iterating implementation. If, on the other hand, the filter does fully evaluate the remaining keys using just the index information, then it should return null to indicate that no further filtering is necessary.

Specified by:
applyIndex in interface IndexAwareFilter
Parameters:
mapIndexes - the available MapIndex objects keyed by the related ValueExtractor; read-only
setKeys - the mutable set of keys that remain to be filtered
Returns:
a Filter object (which may be an EntryFilter) that can be used to process the remaining keys, or null if no additional filter processing is necessary

getFilter

public IndexAwareFilter getFilter()
Obtain the underlying filter.
Returns:
the filter wrapped by this PriorityFilter

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Return a human-readable description for this Filter.
Returns:
a String description of the Filter

writeExternal

                   throws java.io.IOException
Save the contents of this object by storing the object's state into the passed DataOutput object.
