OctetArrayWriteBuffer Class Reference

#include <coherence/io/OctetArrayWriteBuffer.hpp>

Inherits AbstractWriteBuffer.

Inherited by BinaryWriteBuffer.

List of all members.


Detailed Description

OctetArrayWriteBuffer is an implementation of WriteBuffer on an octet array.

It is designed to support both fixed length buffers and resizable buffers.

This implementation is explicitly not thread-safe.

Public Member Functions

virtual size32_t length () const
 Determine the length of the data that is in the buffer.

This is the actual number of octets of data that have been written to the buffer, not the capacity of the buffer.

Returns:
the number of octets of data represented by this WriteBuffer
virtual size32_t getCapacity () const
 Determine the number of octets that the buffer can hold without resizing itself.

In other words, a WriteBuffer has getCapacity() - length() octets that can be written to it without overflowing the current underlying buffer allocation. Since the buffer is an abstract concept, the actual mechanism for the underlying buffer is not known.

Note that if the maximum size returned by getMaximumCapacity() is greater than the current size returned by this method, then the WriteBuffer will automatically resize itself to allocate more space when the amount of data written to it passes the current size.

Returns:
the number of octets of data that this WriteBuffer can hold without resizing its underlying buffer
virtual size32_t getMaximumCapacity () const
 Determine the maximum number of octets that the buffer can hold.

If the maximum size is greater than the current size, then the buffer is expected to resize itself as necessary up to the maximum size in order to contain the data given to it.

Returns:
the maximum number of octets of data that the WriteBuffer can hold
virtual void write (size32_t ofDest, octet_t b)
 Store the specified octet at the specified offset within the buffer.

For purposes of side-effects and potential exceptions, this method is functionally equivalent to the following code:

 Array<octet_t>::Handle habSrc = Array<octet_t>::create(1);
 habSrc[0] = b;
 write(ofDest, habSrc, 0, 1);
 

Parameters:
 ofDest the offset within this buffer to store the passed data
 b the octet to store in this buffer
virtual void write (size32_t ofDest, Array< octet_t >::View vabSrc, size32_t ofSrc, size32_t cbSrc)
 Store the specified number of octets from the specified location within the passed octet array at the specified offset within this buffer.

As a result of this method, the buffer length as reported by the length() method will become max(length(), ofDest + cbSrc).

As a result of this method, the buffer capacity as reported by the getCapacity() method will not change if the new value returned by length() would not exceed the old value returned by getCapacity(); otherwise, the capacity will be increased such that {getCapacity() >= length(). Regardless, it is always true that getCapacity() >= length() and getMaximumCapacity() >= getCapacity(). If the buffer capacity cannot be increased due to resource constraints, an undesignated Exception will be thrown.

Parameters:
 ofDest the offset within this buffer to store the passed data
 vabSrc the array containing the octets to store in this buffer
 ofSrc the offset within the passed octet array to copy from
 cbSrc the number of octets to copy from the passed octet array
Exceptions:
 NullPointerException if vabSrc is NULL
 IndexOutOfBoundsException if ofSrc + cbSrc is greater than vabSrc->length, or if ofDest + cbSrc is greater than getMaximumCapacity()
virtual void write (size32_t ofDest, ReadBuffer::View vBufSrc, size32_t ofSrc, size32_t cbSrc)
 Store the specified portion of the contents of the specified ReadBuffer at the specified offset within this buffer.

For purposes of side-effects and potential exceptions, this method is functionally equivalent to the following code:

 Array<octet_t>::View vabSrc = vbufSrc.toOctetArray(ofSrc, cbSrc);
 write(ofDest, vabSrc, 0, vabSrc->length);
 

Parameters:
 ofDest the offset within this buffer to store the passed data
 vBufSrc the source ReadBuffer
 ofSrc the offset within the passed ReadBuffer to copy from
 cbSrc the number of octets to copy from the passed ReadBuffer
virtual void retain (size32_t of, size32_t cb)
 Starting with the octet at offset of, retain cb octets in this WriteBuffer, such that the octet at offset of is shifted to offset 0, the octet at offset of + 1 is shifted to offset 1, and so on up to the octet at offset of + cb - 1, which is shifted to offset cb - 1.

After this method, the length of the buffer as indicated by the length() method will be equal to cb.

Legal values for the offset of the first octet to retain of are (of >= 0 && of <= length()). Legal values for the number of octets to retain cb are (cb >= 0 && cb <= length()), such that (of + cb <= length()).

If cb is zero, then this method will have the same effect as clear. If of is zero, then this method will have the effect of truncating the data in the buffer, but no octets will be shifted within the buffer.

The effect on the capacity of the buffer is implementation- specific; some implementations are expected to retain the same capacity while others are expected to shrink accordingly.

Parameters:
 of the offset of the first octet within the WriteBuffer that will be retained
 cb the number of octets to retain
Exceptions:
 IndexOutOfBoundsException if of + cb is greater than length()
virtual ReadBuffer::View getUnsafeReadBuffer () const
 Get a ReadBuffer object to read data from this buffer.

This method is not guaranteed to return a snapshot of this buffer's data, nor is it guaranteed to return a live view of this buffer, which means that subsequent changes to this WriteBuffer may or may not affect the contents and / or the length of the returned ReadBuffer.

To get a snapshot, use the getReadBuffer() method.

Returns:
a ReadBuffer that reflects the contents of this WriteBuffer but whose behavior is undefined if the WriteBuffer is modified
