Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.0 Developer's Guide

Registration Identifiers

Preoperation plug-in registrations use IDs of the form SLAPI_PLUGIN_PRE_operation_FN. Postoperation registrations use IDs of the form SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_operation_FN. Here, operation is one of ABANDON, ADD, BIND, COMPARE, DELETE, ENTRY (sending entries to the client), MODIFY, MODRDN, REFERRAL (sending referrals to the client), RESULT (sending results to the client), SEARCH, or UNBIND.


Note –

Preoperation and postoperation plug-ins can also register functions to run at Directory Server startup, using SLAPI_PLUGIN_START_FN, and at Directory Server shutdown, using SLAPI_PLUGIN_STOP_FN.


Part II, Directory Server Plug-In API Reference describes these IDs. Refer also to install-path/include/slapi-plugin.h for the complete list of IDs used at build time.

The following example demonstrates how the functions are registered with Directory Server by using the appropriate registration IDs.


Example 6–1 Registering Postoperation Functions (testpostop.c)

#include "slapi-plugin.h"

Slapi_PluginDesc postop_desc = {
    "test-postop",                     /* plug-in identifier         */
    "Sun Microsystems, Inc.",          /* vendor name                */
    "6.0",                             /* plug-in revision number    */
    "Sample post-operation plug-in"    /* plug-in description        */
};

static Slapi_ComponentId * postop_id;  /* Used to set log            */

/* Register the plug-in with the server. */
#ifdef _WIN32
__declspec(dllexport)
#endif
int
testpostop_init(Slapi_PBlock * pb)
{
    int rc = 0;                        /* 0 means success            */
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Plug-in API version        */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_VERSION,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_CURRENT_VERSION
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Plug-in description        */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_DESCRIPTION,
        (void *) &postop_desc
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Open log at startup        */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_START_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_set_log
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Post-op add function       */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_ADD_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_add
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Post-op modify function    */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_MODIFY_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_mod
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Post-op delete function    */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_DELETE_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_del
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Post-op modrdn function    */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_POST_MODRDN_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_modrdn
    );
    rc |= slapi_pblock_set(            /* Close log on shutdown      */
        pb,
        SLAPI_PLUGIN_CLOSE_FN,
        (void *) testpostop_free_log
    );
    /* Plug-in identifier is required for internal search.           */
    rc |= slapi_pblock_get(pb, SLAPI_PLUGIN_IDENTITY, &postop_id);
    return (rc);
}

In addition to its postoperation functions, the plug-in that is shown in the preceding example registers a function. The plug-in opens a log file at startup. The plug-in closes the log file at shutdown. For details, refer to install-path/examples/testpostop.c.
