public class OverflowMap
extends AbstractKeySetBasedMap
implements CacheMap

An Observable Map implementation that wraps two maps - a front map (assumed to be fast but limited in its maximum size) and a back map (assumed to be slower but much less limited in its maximum size).

The OverflowMap is observable, and as such it is allowed to be an active data structure. In other words, it supports item expiration, eviction, and other types of "self-generating" events. (The SimpleOverflowMap) is an alternative that may be more efficient if the overflow map is passive.) As a consequence of the requirements for managing the overflow map as an active data structure, the OverflowMap maintains information about each entry in the map; in practice, this will limit the size of the OverflowMap since all keys and some additional information for each key will be maintained in memory. On the other hand, by maintaining this information in memory, certain operations will be more efficient, such as the methods containsKey(), size(), keySet().iterator(), etc. (Again, for an alternative, see SimpleOverflowMap, which does not maintain the entire set of keys in memory.)

The primary reason why OverflowMap is based on the AbstractKeySetBasedMap is that the set of keys within the OverflowMap is considered to be "known", although not altogether stable due to concurrency issues (the OverflowMap is designed to support a high level of concurrency). AbstractKeySetBasedMap conceptually delegates many operations down to its key Set, which the OverflowMap implementation reverses (by having the implementations on the OverflowMap itself). However, the key and entry Sets and the values Collection benefit significantly in terms of their ability to optimize the Collection.iterator() and Collection.toArray() methods.

Further, as a result (and sometimes as a consequence) of its observability, the OverflowMap supports (and has to support) a number of capabilities that the SimpleOverflowMap does not:

                            java.lang.Object oValue)
Associates the specified value with the specified key in this map.
Specified by:
put in interface CacheMap
Specified by:
put in interface java.util.Map
Overrides:
put in class AbstractKeyBasedMap
Parameters:
oKey - key with which the specified value is to be associated
oValue - value to be associated with the specified key
Returns:
previous value associated with specified key, or null if there was no mapping for key

putAll

public void putAll(java.util.Map map)
Copies all of the mappings from the specified map to this map. The effect of this call is equivalent to that of calling AbstractKeyBasedMap.put(java.lang.Object, java.lang.Object) on this map once for each mapping in the passed map. The behavior of this operation is unspecified if the passed map is modified while the operation is in progress.
Specified by:
putAll in interface java.util.Map
Overrides:
putAll in class AbstractKeyBasedMap
Parameters:
map - the Map containing the key/value pairings to put into this Map

remove

public java.lang.Object remove(java.lang.Object oKey)
Removes the mapping for this key from this map if present. Expensive: updates both the underlying cache and the local cache.

remove in interface java.util.Map
Overrides:
remove in class AbstractKeyBasedMap
Parameters:
oKey - key whose mapping is to be removed from the map
Returns:
previous value associated with specified key, or null if there was no mapping for key. A null return can also indicate that the map previously associated null with the specified key, if the implementation supports null values.

Specified by:
size in interface java.util.Map
Overrides:

public java.lang.Object put(java.lang.Object oKey,
                            java.lang.Object oValue,
                            long cMillis)
Associates the specified value with the specified key in this cache. If the cache previously contained a mapping for this key, the old value is replaced. This variation of the CacheMap.put(Object oKey, Object oValue) method allows the caller to specify an expiry (or "time to live") for the cache entry.
Specified by:
put in interface CacheMap
Parameters:
oKey - key with which the specified value is to be associated
oValue - value to be associated with the specified key
cMillis - the number of milliseconds until the cache entry will expire, also referred to as the entry's "time to live"; pass CacheMap.EXPIRY_DEFAULT to use the cache's default time-to-live setting; pass CacheMap.EXPIRY_NEVER to indicate that the cache entry should never expire; this milliseconds value is not a date/time value, such as is returned from System.currentTimeMillis()
Returns:
previous value associated with specified key, or null if there was no mapping for key. A null return can also indicate that the map previously associated null with the specified key, if the implementation supports null values

getAll

public java.util.Map getAll(java.util.Collection colKeys)
Get all the specified keys, if they are in the Map. For each key that is in the cache, that key and its corresponding value will be placed in the map that is returned by this method. The absence of a key in the returned map indicates that it was not in the cache, which may imply (for caches that can load behind the scenes) that the requested data could not be loaded.
Specified by:
getAll in interface CacheMap
Overrides:
getAll in class AbstractKeyBasedMap
Parameters:
colKeys - a collection of keys that may be in the named cache
Returns:
a Map of keys to values for the specified keys passed in colKeys

Specified by:
addMapListener in interface ObservableMap
Parameters:
listener - the MapEvent listener to add

removeMapListener

public void removeMapListener(MapListener listener)

Specified by:
addMapListener in interface ObservableMap

protected MapListener getFrontMapListener()
Get the MapListener for the front map.
Returns:
the MapListener for the front map

setFrontMapListener

Specify the MapListener for the front map.

The caller is required to manage all of the thread concurrency issues associated with modifying the listener.

Parameters:
listener - the MapListener for the front map

getBackMapListener

protected MapListener getBackMapListener()
Get the MapListener for the back map.
Returns:
the MapListener for the back map

setBackMapListener

protected void setBackMapListener(MapListener listener)
Specify the MapListener for the back map.

The caller is required to manage all of the thread concurrency issues associated with modifying the listener.

Parameters:
listener - the MapListener for the back map

getDeferredList

protected java.util.List getDeferredList()
Obtain the List of keys that may have deferred events.
Returns:

isNullValuesAllowed

public boolean isNullValuesAllowed()
Determine if null values are permitted. By default, they are not.
Returns:
true iff null values are permitted

setNullValuesAllowed

public void setNullValuesAllowed(boolean fAllowNulls)
Specify whether null values are permitted.
Parameters:
fAllowNulls - pass true to allow null values; false to disallow

isExpiryEnabled

public boolean isExpiryEnabled()
Determine if this OverflowMap supports entry expiry.
Returns:
true iff the entry expiry feature is supported

setExpiryEnabled

public void setExpiryEnabled(boolean fEnableExpiry)
Specify whether or not entry expiry is supported. Since there is a per-entry (memory) cost just to support the expiry feature, and since there is additional memory cost (and a small performance cost) to keep track of entries that are set to expire, this feature is made optional.

Note that this feature must be enabled before populating the cache.

Parameters:
fEnableExpiry - pass true to enable entry expiry, false to disable it

isFrontPutBlind

Determine if the front Map is more efficiently updated using putAll. (The use of putAll instead of put is called put-blind because it does not return a value.)
Returns:
true iff the use of the put method should be avoided when updating the front Map, and putAll should be used instead

setFrontPutBlind

public void setFrontPutBlind(boolean fUseFrontPutAll)
Specify whether the front Map is more efficiently updated using putAll.
Parameters:
fUseFrontPutAll - pass true to allow null values; false to disallow

beginKeyProcess

protected OverflowMap.Status beginKeyProcess(java.lang.Object oKey)
Block until a key is available for processing, and return the Status object for that key. The caller is then expected to perform its processing, during which time events against the Map Entry may occur. Note that those events can occur on threads other than the current thread; when this current thread can no longer handle events from other threads, it must call OverflowMap.Status.closeProcessing() and then perform its final adjustments to the Status data structure, handling any events that were queued in the meantime on the Status. After completing the processing during this "quiet period" in which all other threads are prevented from accessing this entry or handling events for this entry, then the caller must call endKeyProcess(java.lang.Object, com.tangosol.net.cache.OverflowMap.Status) passing the Status object returned from this method.
Parameters:
oKey - the key to process
Returns:
the Status object for the specified key

endKeyProcess

protected void endKeyProcess(java.lang.Object oKey,
                             OverflowMap.Status status)

Block until this thread has exclusive access to perform operations against the OverflowMap.

endMapProcess

protected void endMapProcess()
Release exclusive access for the OverflowMap.

prepareStatus
