Constructor Detail

EntityCacheOverRowSet

public EntityCacheOverRowSet()
Method Detail

iterator

protected java.util.Iterator iterator()
Description copied from class: EntityCache
Return an Iterator for the EntityCache. The naming of this method is consistent with the JDK 1.2 Collection classes. The behaviour of the Iterator isn't defined if the underlying values in the cache change as it is executing.

Overrides:
iterator in class EntityCache
Returns:
an Interator over the cache values.

getEntityDefOverRowSet

protected EntityDefOverRowSet getEntityDefOverRowSet()

setMasterRowSetIterator

public boolean setMasterRowSetIterator(RowSetIterator masterRSI)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Sets the master iterator.

Specified by:
setMasterRowSetIterator in interface RowSet
Parameters:
masterRSI - the new master row set iterator for this row set.
Returns:
true if the operation succeeded.

isDefaultRowSet

public boolean isDefaultRowSet()
Internal: Applications should not use this method.

Specified by:
isDefaultRowSet in interface RowSet
Returns:
false always as this is not a default rowset of a ViewObject

getViewObject

public ViewObject getViewObject()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Gets the view object that owns this row set.

If this row set is the result of calling a view link accessor, the returned view object is an internal view object. ViewObject.isInternal() indicates whether the view object is internal or not. Even if a view link is defined between the master and detail view object, and even if an instance of them are included in the application module's data model, calling the view link by default uses a separate view object instance from the one in the AM's data model. To access the view link accessor's ViewObject, use the following code snippet (assuming that the detail side is called "MyDetail"):

    RowSet detailRS = (RowSet) masterViewRow.getMyDetail();
    ViewObject detailVO = detailRS.getViewObject();
 

Specified by:
getViewObject in interface RowSet
Returns:
the parent view object.

setNamedWhereClauseParams

public void setNamedWhereClauseParams(AttributeList attrlist)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Sets the value of a named where-clause parameters for the entire viewObject.

Setting a named where-clause parameter does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() to apply the new bind value.

Specified by:
setNamedWhereClauseParams in interface RowSet
Parameters:
attrlist - is a Name, value pair of bind variables.

getNamedWhereClauseParams

public AttributeList getNamedWhereClauseParams()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Gets all the Name, value pairs of a named where-clause parameter of the viewObject.

It uses the method getNamedWhereClauseParam to return all the name,value pairs from VariableValueManager.

Specified by:
getNamedWhereClauseParams in interface RowSet
Returns:
an AttributeList of name, value pairs of all named bind variables.

setWhereClauseParams

public void setWhereClauseParams(java.lang.Object[] values)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Specifies the bind variable values to use with the view object's where-clause.

Setting the where-clause bind values through this method does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() to apply the new bind values.

Specified by:
setWhereClauseParams in interface RowSet
Parameters:
values - an array of bind values. If the view object is using the JDBC style bindings ("?" for bind variable), values[n] is bound to the bind variable that appears in the n-th order (0 based indexing). If the view object is using the Oracle style bindings (":1", ":2", etc. for bind variable), values[n] is bound to the bind variable :(n+1), i.e., values[0] is bound to :1, values[1] is bound to :2, etc.

setWhereClauseParam

public void setWhereClauseParam(int index,
                                java.lang.Object value)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Specifies a single bind variable value to use with the view object's where-clause.

Setting the where-clause bind values through this method does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() to apply the new bind values.

Specified by:
setWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
index - the index identifying the bind variable. If the view object is using the JDBC style bindings ("?" for bind variable), value is bound to the bind variable that appears in the index-th order (0 based indexing). If the view object is using the Oracle style bindings (":1", ":2", etc. for bind variable), value is bound to the bind variable :(index+1). If index is 0, value is bound to :1. If index is 1, value is bound to :2.
value - the bind variable value.

defineNamedWhereClauseParam

public void defineNamedWhereClauseParam(java.lang.String name,
                                        java.lang.Object defaultValue,
                                        int[] indices)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Defines a named bind variable to use with the view object's where-clause.

This named where-clause parameter will be defined as a variable on the view object. That is, if a named where-clause parameter is defined through one row set, all other row sets that belongs to the same parent view object will "see" that parameter.

Through the defaultValue, one can specify the default value for this where-clause parameter. If no default value is supplied, null will be used as the parameter value.

The indices parameter specifies where-clause parameter indices into which this named parameter will be bound. The same value can be bound into multiple indices. For example, if { 1, 2 } is specified for indices, the value will be bound for where-clause parameter indices of 1 and 2. I.e., this parameter will produce setWhereClauseParam(1, value) and setWhereClauseParam(2, value).

This method can be invoked to redefine an existing named where-clause paramter (to change the default value and the indices) only if the named parameter is found on the view object. If the named parameter/variable is found on one of the parent objects, a new where-clause parameter definition is still added to the view object.

When redefining, a check is made to ensure that the existing variable has no kind specification (null) or is of the "where" kind (which means that the existing variable is a where-clause parameter). If not, an InvalidParamException is thrown.

Defining a named where-clause parameter does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() to apply the new bind value.

Specified by:
defineNamedWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
name - the name of the where-clause parameter.
defaultValue - specifies the default value for this where-clause parameter. This default value can be overridden through a call to setNamedWhereClauseParam().
indices - where-clause indices into which this parameter value should be bound. See above.

removeNamedWhereClauseParam

public void removeNamedWhereClauseParam(java.lang.String name)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Removes a named where-clause parameter.

This method removes previously defined named where-clause parameter. A check is made to ensure that the variable being removed is a where-clause parameter (variable kind = "where"). If not, an InvalidParamException is thrown.

If the named where-clause parameter is found but it does not belong to the view object that owns this row set, an InvalidOperException is thrown. This means one is disallowed from removing a named where-clause parameter that belongs to the View definition, for example.

Removing a named where-clause parameter does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() for the removal to take effect.

Specified by:
removeNamedWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
name - the name of the where-clause parameter to remove.

getNamedWhereClauseParam

public java.lang.Object getNamedWhereClauseParam(java.lang.String name)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Gets the value of a named where-clause parameter for this row set.

If the view object owns multiple row sets, each row set may have its own (different) named where-clause parameter value.

Specified by:
getNamedWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
name - the name of the where-clause parameter.

setNamedWhereClauseParam

public void setNamedWhereClauseParam(java.lang.String name,
                                     java.lang.Object value)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Sets the value of a named where-clause parameter for this row set.

If the view object owns multiple row sets, each row set may have its own (different) named where-clause parameter value.

Setting a named where-clause parameter does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() to apply the new bind value.

Specified by:
setNamedWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
name - the name of the where-clause parameter.
value - the where-clause parameter value for this row set.

skipNamedWhereClauseParam

public void skipNamedWhereClauseParam(java.lang.String name)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Skips the named where-clause parameter for this row set. This method does not remove the named where-clause parameter. However, it "masks out" the named where-clause parameter, so that the parameter is skipped when the query is executed.

Skipping a named where-clause parameter does not automatically execute the query. You must call RowSet.executeQuery() for the skip to take effect.

Specified by:
skipNamedWhereClauseParam in interface RowSet
Parameters:
name - the name of the where-clause parameter.

getWhereClauseParams

public java.lang.Object[] getWhereClauseParams()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Gets the bind variable values to be used with the view object's where-clause.

Specified by:
getWhereClauseParams in interface RowSet
Returns:
an array of bind-variable values.

executeQuery

public void executeQuery()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Executes the query.

This method does not necessarily retrieve data. The View Object's fetch mode determines whether the rows are retrieved immediately or not. If FETCH_AS_NEEDED is specified, the ResultSet is left open, and the rows are retrieved as the user navigates through the row set.

Calling this method will ensure that the user will see the latest data from the database, as well as the data changes that the user has made in the current transaction.

If the user changes the SQL statement, or modifies attributes used by it, view rows that were visible may "disappear" after this method is invoked, and the new WHERE clause takes effect.

When a row set is first instantiated and the application calls a navigational method such as, next(), previous(), first(), or last(), this method is implicitly called.

Upon successful execution of the query, this method fires a RangeRefreshEvent event to RowSetListener's registered with this object, by calling RowSetListener.rangeRefreshed().

Specified by:
executeQuery in interface RowSet

executeEmptyRowSet

public void executeEmptyRowSet()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Executes the row set as an empty row set. After the call succeeds, the row set has no rows. This method is useful to build an empty row set and not execute the database query.

Specified by:
executeEmptyRowSet in interface RowSet

cancelQuery

public boolean cancelQuery()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Cancels a running query.

Specified by:
cancelQuery in interface RowSet
Returns:
a flag indicating whether the request to cancel was honored or not. It will return false if the JDBC statement is not executing a query.

isExecuted

public boolean isExecuted()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Returns true if the current ViewObject's query has been executed for this row set.

Specified by:
isExecuted in interface RowSet
Returns:
true if query has been executed.

Description copied from interface: RowSet
Return all controlling masters of this row set.

Specified by:
getMasterRowSetIterators in interface RowSet
Returns:
An array of master iterators.

getApplicationModule

public ApplicationModule getApplicationModule()
Description copied from class: ComponentObjectImpl
Gets the parent Application Module that contains this component object. If the object has no parent, it return null. For example, if you call this method on a root AM, it will return null.

Specified by:
getApplicationModule in interface RowSet
Overrides:
getApplicationModule in class ComponentObjectImpl
Returns:
ApplicationModule or null if the component object has no parent.

getEstimatedRowCount

public long getEstimatedRowCount()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Counts the number of rows in the collection defined by the view object's query.

This method uses a "SELECT COUNT(1) FROM (<query-statement>)" query to obtained the initial count. After that, changes to row count (such as insertion and deletion of rows) is kept up to date.

However, since the row counting query and the query to retrieve actual rows are issued at two different times, it is possible for the accurate count to change between these two points. This is why this method is named getEstimatedRowCount().

Specified by:
getEstimatedRowCount in interface RowSet
Returns:
an estimated number of rows.

getDeferredEstimatedRowCount

public long getDeferredEstimatedRowCount()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
If this ViewObject is marked to not perform the estimatedRowCount query, then return -1 until either the estimatedRowCount is called and the count is known or the RowSet is fetched completely in which case the actual row count is known.

Specified by:
getDeferredEstimatedRowCount in interface RowSet
Returns:
-1 until either EstimatedRowCount or real RowCount is known.

getCappedRowCount

public long getCappedRowCount(long cap)
Specified by:
getCappedRowCount in interface RowSet

isForwardOnly

public boolean isForwardOnly()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Tests if the row set is constrained to sequential access.

Specified by:
isForwardOnly in interface RowSet
Returns:
true if the row set is restricted to forward-only processing.
See Also:
RowSet.setForwardOnly(boolean)

setForwardOnly

public void setForwardOnly(boolean forwardOnly)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Constrains the row set to sequential access.

When set to true, a row preceeding the current row cannot be designated as the new current row. This restriction allows performance to be optimized.

Specified by:
setForwardOnly in interface RowSet
Parameters:
forwardOnly - true restricts the row set to forward-only processing, false otherwise.

getAccessMode

public byte getAccessMode()
Specified by:
getAccessMode in interface RowSet
Returns:
Returns the current access mode for this row set.
See Also:
RowSet.setAccessMode(byte)

setAccessMode

public void setAccessMode(byte mode)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Constrains the row access based on the following settings:

Switching access modes for a rowset will not take effect until the next explicit call to executeQuery. Switching accessmode back to SCROLLABLE from any other mode is not allowed.

Specified by:
setAccessMode in interface RowSet
Parameters:
mode - One of the four enumerated values RowSet.SCROLLABLE, RowSet.FORWARD_ONLY, RowSet.RANGE_PAGING, RowSet.RANGE_PAGING_AUTO_POST.

getRangePagingCacheFactor

public int getRangePagingCacheFactor()
Specified by:
getRangePagingCacheFactor in interface RowSet

setRangePagingCacheFactor

public void setRangePagingCacheFactor(int f)
Specified by:
setRangePagingCacheFactor in interface RowSet

setAssociationConsistent

public void setAssociationConsistent(boolean consistent)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Sets the association-consistent flag for this row set.

Association-consistent mode allows the user to see new rows created/inserted through another view object. Note that this mode is effective only for view objects that are entity based. If the view object has no entity base, this mode has no effect.

Suppose we have an entity named E. Suppose two view objects, V1 and V2 are based on E. (V1 and V2 do not have to come from the same view definition.) Suppose the user creates a new row through V1. This creates an instance of E as well. The new entity row is registered only when its primary key is attribute set. At this time, an event is sent out to all view objects based on E, i.e., V1 and V2.

When V2 receives this event, it enumerates through all its collections (essentially its row sets--strictly speaking its query collections) looking for those whose isAssociationConsistent() value is true. For each row set whose flag value is true (say R2), it checks to see if it has any view row mapped to the new entity row. If not, it create a new view row and maps it to the new entity row. A rowInserted event fires.

Thus, from the user's view point, R2 is "seeing" the new row, although the row has not yet been posted to database. Hence, setting this flag to true enables the user to see new rows before the row is posted/queried when the view object is entity based.

If flag is false or if the view object is not entity based, the user needs to post the new row through Transaction.postChanges() and requery the row set through RowSet.executeQuery() to see the new row.

The default value for this flag can be globally controlled through the jbo.viewlink.consistent property. Its value can be true, false, or DEFAULT. If the property is not specified, the default value is DEFAULT. A similar property jbo.assoc.consistent controls whether the new-row-appearing behavior should be supported for row sets returned from entity association accessor calls. For jbo.assoc.consistent, supported values are true or false.

If the property value is set to true, all row sets will have true for its initial isAssociationConsistent() value. If the property value is set to false, all row sets will have false for its initial value. If the property value is set to DEFAULT (which is the default), the view object will use the following logic to compute its initial isAssociationConsistent() value: if the view object has multiple entity bases that are updateable, then the initial value is false. If the view object has a where-clause, then the initial value is false. Otherwise, it is true.

Once this method is called to set the flag value manually, neither the property setting nor the view object's initial flag value has an effect.

Specified by:
setAssociationConsistent in interface RowSet
Parameters:
consistent - indicates whether association-consistency should be on or not.

isAssociationConsistent

public boolean isAssociationConsistent()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Returns the flag indicating whether association-consistent mode is on or not.

Specified by:
isAssociationConsistent in interface RowSet
Returns:
true if un-posted new rows are to appear, false otherwise. This flag has no effect if the view object is not entity based.
See Also:
RowSet.setAssociationConsistent(boolean)

closeRowSet

public void closeRowSet()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Closes the row set. It closes all row set iterators that belong to this row set. If this row set is a detail row set in a master-detail relationship, closeRowSet removes this row set from the master row set iterator.

Specified by:
closeRowSet in interface RowSet

isFetchComplete

public boolean isFetchComplete()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Tests if the query result set has been fetched to the end.

Specified by:
isFetchComplete in interface RowSet
Returns:
true if the result set has been fetched to the end.

isMaxFetchSizeExceeded

public boolean isMaxFetchSizeExceeded()
Description copied from interface: RowSet
Tests if the query result has been fetched to the end and the end was reached due to hitting the maxFetchSize limit

Specified by:
isMaxFetchSizeExceeded in interface RowSet
Returns:
true if the result set has been fetched to the maxFetchSize limit and there are still more rows in the database.

isNameGenerated

public boolean isNameGenerated()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Tests if the Iterator's name was generated by the system.

Specified by:
isNameGenerated in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
true if the name was generated by the system. false if the name was given by the user and not generated by the system.

getNextRangeSet

public Row[] getNextRangeSet()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Gets the next set of rows in the range. This method is good for processing rows in a range-ful fashion. Suppose the Row Set has 20 rows and the Iterator range size is 10. Suppose further that the Iterator is showing rows 0 through 9 (0-based indexing). Calling getNextRangeSet() will return rows 10 through 19.

If the next range set does not have enough rows to fill up the range, getNextRangeSet() returns a partially filled range. That is, this method operates as if the iteration mode is RowIterator.ITER_MODE_LAST_PAGE_PARTIAL.

If there is no more rows, this method returns an empty array (an array of length 0).

While obtaining the next range set, the range will be scrolled. This causes a ScrollEvent to be sent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent). To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

After the next range set is obtained, the method sets the first Row of the range as the current row. This may fire a NavigationEvent and sends it to RowSetListener.navigated(oracle.jbo.NavigationEvent).

Specified by:
getNextRangeSet in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
an array of Rows in the next range set. An array of length 0 if there are no more rows.

getPreviousRangeSet

public Row[] getPreviousRangeSet()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Gets the previous set of rows in the range. This method is good for processing rows in a range-ful fashion. Suppose the Row Set has 20 rows and the Iterator range size is 10. Suppose further that the Iterator is showing rows 10 through 19 (0-based indexing). Calling getPreviousRangeSet() will return rows 0 through 9.

If there is no more rows, this method returns an empty array (an array of length 0).

While obtaining the previous range set, the range will be scrolled. This causes a ScrollEvent to be sent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent). To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

After the previous range set is obtained, the method sets the first Row of the range as the current row. This may fire a NavigationEvent and sends it to RowSetListener.navigated(oracle.jbo.NavigationEvent).

Specified by:
getPreviousRangeSet in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
an array of Rows in the previous range set. An array of length 0 if there are no more rows.

getRowSet

public RowSet getRowSet()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Gets the Row Set that this Iterator belongs to.

Specified by:
getRowSet in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
the owning Row Set.

getEstimatedRangePageCount

public int getEstimatedRangePageCount()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Returns getEstimatedRowCount()/rangePageSize, if rangeSize > 0. For rangeSize <= 0, returns 1.

This number may fluxuate when the View Object is syncronized with its Entity Object.

Specified by:
getEstimatedRangePageCount in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
the number of range-pages that this RowSet collection has.

scrollToRangePage

public int scrollToRangePage(int pageIndex)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Moves the row set range start to the given page index where every page consists of RangeSize number of rows. PageIndex should start at page number 1. This method calculates the rowIndex that should start at that page and then scrolls the iterator to start at that row by using the following calculation:

(rangeSize * (pageSize-1)) - getRangeStart();

Specified by:
scrollToRangePage in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
pageIndex - the page number to go to in the result set.
Returns:
the number of rows actually scrolled.

getDetailRowSets

public RowSet[] getDetailRowSets()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Gets an array of detail Row Sets for which this Iterator is the master.

In a master-detail relationship in an Application Module, the master in reality is a Row Set Iterator. (Though we often speak of master View Object, in reality, it is the Iterator behind the View Object which is playing the role of the master). Whenever the currency of this master Iterator moves, the detail Row Sets are re-executed to show related Rows.

Calling this method returns an array of Row Sets that are related to this Iterator as detail Row Sets.

Specified by:
getDetailRowSets in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
an array of detail RowSet.

createDetailRowSet

public RowSet createDetailRowSet(java.lang.String rsName,
                                 java.lang.String viewLinkDefName)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Creates a detail Row Set. See RowSetIterator.getDetailRowSets() for explanation of detail Row Sets.

This method creates a new detail Row Set for this Iterator.

Specified by:
createDetailRowSet in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
rsName - the name of the new detail Row Set.
viewLinkDefName - the name of a View Link definition. This View Link chooses the relationship in which this Iterator is the master and the new Row Set is the detail. It must be a fully qualified name (including the package name).
Returns:
the new detail Row Set.

addManagementListener

public void addManagementListener(RowSetManagementListener listener)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Adds a subscriber (listener) to be notified of RowSetManagementListener events generated by this Row Set Iterator.

Specified by:
addManagementListener in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be added. It should implement RowSetManagementListener.

removeManagementListener

public void removeManagementListener(RowSetManagementListener listener)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Removes a subscriber (listener) for RowSetManagementListener events generated by this row set iterator.

Specified by:
removeManagementListener in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be removed.

closeRowSetIterator

public void closeRowSetIterator()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Closes this row set iterator. If this row set iterator is a master in a master-detail relationship, closeRowSetIterator closes all detail row sets.

After that, it fires a RowSetManagementListener.iteratorClosed() event to its RowSetManagementListener's.

Then, it deregisters this row set iterator from the owning row set, and deregisters all its listeners.

Specified by:
closeRowSetIterator in interface RowSetIterator

getSyncLock

public java.lang.Object getSyncLock()
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Gets the locking object for this Row Set Iterator. Actually, this method locks the Application Module to which this Row Set Iterator belongs. See ApplicationModule.getSyncLock() for details.

Specified by:
getSyncLock in interface RowSetIterator
Returns:
the locking object.

getFilteredRows

public Row[] getFilteredRows(java.lang.String attrName,
                             java.lang.Object attrValue)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Returns all rows in this collection whose attribute value matches the value being passed in attrValue.

Note that this method does not affect the current RowSetIterator.

Specified by:
getFilteredRows in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
attrName - name of the attribute to be used for filtering.
attrValue - attribute value for filtering.
Returns:
an array of rows that match.

getFilteredRowsInRange

public Row[] getFilteredRowsInRange(java.lang.String attrName,
                                    java.lang.Object attrValue)
Description copied from interface: RowSetIterator
Returns all rows in this range whose attribute value matches the value being passed in attrValue.

This method uses getAllRowsInRange() to retrieve all rows and then match the rows.

Specified by:
getFilteredRowsInRange in interface RowSetIterator
Parameters:
attrName - name of the attribute to be used for filtering.
attrValue - attribute value for filtering.
Returns:
an array of rows in the current range that match.

addListener

public void addListener(java.lang.Object listener)
Description copied from interface: NavigatableRowIterator
Adds a subscriber (listener) to be notified of RowSetListener events generated by this row set iterator.

Specified by:
addListener in interface NavigatableRowIterator
Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be added. It should implement RowSetListener.

removeListener

public void removeListener(java.lang.Object listener)
Description copied from interface: NavigatableRowIterator
Removes a subscriber (listener) for RowSetListener events generated by this row set iterator.

Specified by:
removeListener in interface NavigatableRowIterator
Parameters:
listener - the subscriber to be removed.

next

public Row next()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the next row in the iterator. If next() is called on an iterator whose Row Set has not yet been RowSet.executeQuery()'ed, the Row Set's query is executed. Thus, the user does not need to call executeQuery() himself before calling next(). We refer to this as implicit query execution or implicit Row Set execution.

Before moving to the next row, next() validates the current row (if the iterator has a current row) through a call to Row.validate().

If the currency is on the last row of the range and next() is called, the range is scolled down by one row to bring the next row into the visible range. In particular, if the range size is 1, next() scrolls the range down by 1 row.

When this method is called, the current row of the iterator may be outside the range. (Note that the current row does not have to be within the range.) If so, next() will scroll the range, so that the row that will be the current row at the conclusion of this method will be positioned in the middle of the range.

If the iterator is just opened or reset (see RowIterator.reset()), next() will return the first row if one exists. In this situation, next() is functionally equivalent to RowIterator.first().

If the iterator is at the last row of the Row Set, next() push the currency into the imaginary slot after the last row. This will set the current slot status to SLOT_BEYOND_LAST.

When the next row is required, a check is made to see if the row has already been brought into the collection. If not, the row is fetched from database. Note that the View Object's fetch mode affects how rows are fetched from database into the collection. See ViewObjectImpl.getFetchMode() for details.

If successful, this method designates the next row as the current row (the currency finally moves).

This method generates events to notify the changes to the iterator. If scrolling occurs because of conditions described above, a ScrollEvent will be sent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent). To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

If the currency is changed, it generates a NavigationEvent and sends it to RowSetListener.navigated(oracle.jbo.NavigationEvent).

Specified by:
next in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the next Row object, or null if there is no next row.

previous

public Row previous()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the previous row in the iterator. If previous() is called on an iterator whose Row Set has not yet been RowSet.executeQuery()'ed, the Row Set's query is executed. Thus, the user does not need to call executeQuery() himself before calling previous(). We refer to this as implicit query execution or implicit Row Set execution.

Before moving to the previous row, previous() validates the current row (if the iterator has a current row) through a call to Row.validate().

If the currency is on the first row of the range and previous() is called, the range is scolled up by one row to bring the previous row into the visible range. In particular, if the range size is 1, previous() scrolls the range up by 1 row.

When this method is called, the current row of the iterator may be outside the range. (Note that the current row does not have to be within the range.) If so, previous() will scroll the range, so that the row that will be the current row at the conclusion of this method will be positioned in the middle of the range.

If the iterator is just opened or reset (see RowIterator.reset()), previous() will null as the currency is already on the imaginary slot before the first row.

If the iterator is at the first row of the Row Set, previous() push the currency into the imaginary slot before the first row. This will set the current slot status to SLOT_BEFORE_FIRST.

If successful, this method designates the previous row as the current row (the currency finally moves).

This method generates events to notify the changes to the iterator. If scrolling occurs because of conditions described above, a ScrollEvent will be sent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent). To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

If the currency is changed, it generates a NavigationEvent and sends it to RowSetListener.navigated(oracle.jbo.NavigationEvent).

Specified by:
previous in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the previous Row object, or null if there is no previous row.

first

public Row first()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the first row in the iterator. If first() is called on an iterator whose Row Set has not yet been RowSet.executeQuery()'ed, the Row Set's query is executed. Thus, the user does not need to call executeQuery() himself before calling first(). We refer to this as implicit query execution or implicit Row Set execution.

This method checks to see if the currency is not on the first row. If not, it resets the currency to the imaginary slot before the first row and then calls RowIterator.next(). Note that the act of resetting the currency may cause the range to scroll upward.

If the currency is on the slot before the first row, it simply calls next(). In this case, first() is equivalent to next().

If the currency is already on the first row, nothing happens.

If first() is called on an empty Row Set (a Row Set that has no row), the currency is set to the slot after the last row, and null is returned.

This method generates events to notify the changes to the iterator, e.g., ScrollEvent and/or NavigationEvent. See RowIterator.next() for details.

Specified by:
first in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the first Row object, or null if there is no first row. In that case (null return), the current slot status will be RowIterator.SLOT_BEYOND_LAST.

last

public Row last()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the last row in the iterator. If last() is called on an iterator whose Row Set has not yet been RowSet.executeQuery()'ed, the Row Set's query is executed. Thus, the user does not need to call executeQuery() himself before calling last(). We refer to this as implicit query execution or implicit Row Set execution.

Before moving to the last row, last() validates the current row (if the iterator has a current row) through a call to Row.validate().

This method retrieves all rows from the Row Set and scrolls (if necessary) to the last row. If some of these rows have not yet been fetched from database, it fetches them. The View Object's fetch mode affects how rows are fetched from database into the collection. See ViewObjectImpl.getFetchMode() for details.

If successful, this method designates the last row as the current row.

If last() is called on an empty Row Set, the currency moves to the slot beyond the last row. The current slot status is set to RowIterator.SLOT_BEYOND_LAST.

The caller of this method should be aware that it may take a long time to complete as all rows from the Row Set are fetched.

The number of rows in the range at the completion of this method is affected by the "iteration mode". See Iteration Modes above for details.

This method generates events to notify the changes to the iterator. If scrolling occurs because of conditions described above, a ScrollEvent will be sent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent). To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

If the currency is changed, it generates a NavigationEvent and sends it to RowSetListener.navigated(oracle.jbo.NavigationEvent).

Specified by:
last in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the last Row object, or null if there is no last row.

reset

public void reset()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Moves the currency to the slot before the first row.

After this method, the current slot status will be RowIterator.SLOT_BEFORE_FIRST except in cases where this iterator is associated to an iterator binding in an ADF application which sets the currency to the first row in the iterator if available. A subsequent invocation of RowIterator.next() will cause the first row to become the current row.

It sends a ScrollEvent to RowSetListener.rangeScrolled(oracle.jbo.ScrollEvent) if the currency was not on the first row or on the slot before the first row. To pick up such an event, the listener object must implement the RowSetListener interface. Further, this listener must be registered through a call to NavigatableRowIterator.addListener(Object) (the listener object passed in as the parameter to addListener).

Specified by:
reset in interface RowIterator

hasNext

public boolean hasNext()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Tests for the existence of a row after the current row.

Specified by:
hasNext in interface RowIterator
Returns:
true if there is a next row. Specifically, if the Row Set is empty or if the currency is on the last row or the slot after the last row (current slot status == RowIterator.SLOT_BEYOND_LAST), it returns false. Otherwise, true.

hasPrevious

public boolean hasPrevious()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Tests for the existence of a row before the current row.

If the Row Set is forward-only, it returns false.

Specified by:
hasPrevious in interface RowIterator
Returns:
true if there is a previous row. Specifically, if the Row Set is empty or forward-only or if the currency is on the first row or the slot before the first row (current slot status == RowIterator.SLOT_BEFORE_FIRST), it returns false. Otherwise, true.

getFetchedRowCount

public int getFetchedRowCount()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Counts the number of rows fetched from database into the Row Set collection up to this point.

Specified by:
getFetchedRowCount in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the number of rows fetched.

getRowCount

public int getRowCount()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Counts the total number of rows in the Row Set.

Note that this method retrieves all rows from the database then returns the number of rows in the Row Set collection.

Specified by:
getRowCount in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the number of rows.

getRow

public Row getRow(Key key)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Returns the first row whose key matches key.

If the key being passed in has the row handle, it uses the row handle to locate the row. This is a quick operation. (A key returned from a call to Row.getKey() contains the row handle.)

If the key does not have a row handle, or if the handle look up did not find the row in the View row cache, it performs a linear search through the Row Set collection looking for a match. Hence, this method could take quite a long time to complete.

This method is similar to RowIterator.findByKey(Key, int) in that both methods return Row(s) that match the given key. However, the user should understand the differences. First, findByKey() performs random search. getKey() only performs random search if the key has the row handle portion and if the row with that handle is currently in the Row Set collection. Otherwise, getKey() does a linear search until a match is found, or the end of collection is reached. This could result in a long search for a match. Hence, findByKey() is generally much faster.

However, findByKey() may find the matching Row(s) out of sequence. When a row is not found in the View row cache, findByKey() issues a database query. Matching rows are retrieved and appended to the Row Set collection. For example, suppose the Row Set collection has 200 rows that qualify in the database. Suppose the user retrieved only 10 rows (190 not yet retrieved). Suppose, at this time, the user issues findByKey() that locates the 200-th row (the last row in database result set). That row is appended to the Row Set collection at the 11-th spot. Thus, when you use findByKey(), you may see rows out of sequence. In contrast, getRow() always retrieves rows in sequence.

If the Row Set collection is of any non-trivial size (say over 50), we would recommend findByKey().

findByKey() allows for partial key (only for View Objects that have multiple Entity bases). When a partial key is specified, multiple rows may return. getKey() returns one and only one row (exact match).

Specified by:
getRow in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
key - the key.
Returns:
the Row object matching the key.

getRowAtRangeIndex

public Row getRowAtRangeIndex(int index)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Accesses a row through its range index.

Specified by:
getRowAtRangeIndex in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
index - an index in the range: 0 to getRangeSize() - 1.
Returns:
a Row object, or null if the index is out of range.

getCurrentRow

public Row getCurrentRow()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Accesses the current row.

Specified by:
getCurrentRow in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the Row object designated as the current row.

getCurrentRowIndex

public int getCurrentRowIndex()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the absolute index (not range index) of the current row.

Specified by:
getCurrentRowIndex in interface RowIterator
Returns:
a row index.

getCurrentRowSlot

public int getCurrentRowSlot()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the slot status of the current row.

Specified by:
getCurrentRowSlot in interface RowIterator
Returns:
one of the class constants prefixed by SLOT_.

setCurrentRow

public boolean setCurrentRow(Row row)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Designates a given row as the current row.

Specified by:
setCurrentRow in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
row - the new current row.
Returns:
true if the operation succeeded.

createAndInitRow

public Row createAndInitRow(AttributeList nvp)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Creates and initializes a new Row object, but does not insert it into the Row Set. This method differs from createRow() mainly in that this method allows the user to pass in a list of name-value pairs with which row attributes are initialized.

nvp is a named value pair. When building an nvp from scratch, use NameValuePairs to build a new nvp. Here is an example:

    NameValuePairs nvp = new NameValuePairs();
    nvp.setAttribute("EmpTyp", "C");

    Row row = voEmp.createAndInitRow(nvp);
 
This method is particularly useful when creating a subclass View Row or Entity Row. You can include polymorphic discriminator attribute values in nvp and correct subclass row object will be created.

When this method is called, underlying entities are created. After the new entities are created, a new view row is created. After that ViewRowImpl.create(oracle.jbo.AttributeList) is called with this nvp. ViewRowImpl.create(AttributeList) walks thru the list of entities and calls EntityImpl.create(AttributeList) with the same nvp for each entity in the view row.

Specified by:
createAndInitRow in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
nvp - a list of name-value pairs.
Returns:
a new Row object.

createRow

public Row createRow()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Creates a new Row object, but does not insert it into the Row Set.

Specified by:
createRow in interface RowIterator
Returns:
a new Row object.

insertRow

public void insertRow(Row row)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Inserts a row to the Row Set, before the current row. This method sets the current row to the row just inserted. With respect to eventing, this method call will generate two events (of oracle.jbo.RowSetListener): rowInserted, followed by navigated.

Specified by:
insertRow in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
row - the Row object to be added.

removeCurrentRow

public void removeCurrentRow()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Removes the current Row object from the Row Set.

Specified by:
removeCurrentRow in interface RowIterator

removeCurrentRowFromCollection

public void removeCurrentRowFromCollection()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Removes the current Row object from the collection.

It does not cause the row to be deleted from the database table. It just removes the row from the row collection. However, once the row is removed, it cannot be used any more. If you want to remove the current row from collection and insert it elsewhere, call RowIterator.removeCurrentRowAndRetain(), change currency to the desired location, and then call RowIterator.insertRow(oracle.jbo.Row) with that row.

Specified by:
removeCurrentRowFromCollection in interface RowIterator

removeCurrentRowAndRetain

public Row removeCurrentRowAndRetain()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Removes the current Row object from the collection and retain it for insertion into another location.

It does not cause the row to be deleted from the database table. It just removes the row from the row collection.

This method differs from RowIterator.removeCurrentRowFromCollection() in that after the current row is removed from the collection, it can be inserted back into the collection at another location.

To do so, call RowIterator.removeCurrentRowAndRetain(), and get the returning row. Then, change currency to the desired location, and call RowIterator.insertRow(oracle.jbo.Row) with that row.

Specified by:
removeCurrentRowAndRetain in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the current row which was just removed from collection.

setRangeSize

public int setRangeSize(int size)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Modifies the size of the Row Set Iterator range.

This method takes effect when the next set of data is fetched. For an example usage of setRangeSize, see setRangeStart.

Specified by:
setRangeSize in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
size - the new number of rows in the iterator range. Size of 0 is treated same as 1. Size < -1 is treated same as -1.
Returns:
the new size of the range.
See Also:
RowIterator.setRangeStart(int)

getRangeSize

public int getRangeSize()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the size of the Row Set Iterator range.

Specified by:
getRangeSize in interface RowIterator
Returns:
the number of rows in the range.

getRangeStart

public int getRangeStart()
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Gets the absolute row index of the first row in the Row Set Iterator range.

The absolute index is 0-based, and is the row's index relative to the entire result set.

Specified by:
getRangeStart in interface RowIterator
Returns:
an index.

setRangeStart

public int setRangeStart(int start)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Moves the Row Set Iterator range.

Note that the index is 0-based. When you call setRangeStart(1), the range start will be positioned at the second table row.

Another behavior of setRangeStart (and also setRangeSize) is that it tries to position the range, so as to fill up the range as much as possible. For example, assume you have View Object vo focused on a table with four rows (A, B, C, D), and you execute the following code:

     vo.setRangeStart(4);
     vo.setRangeSize(3);
     Row[] rows = vo.getAllRowsInRange();
 

In this case, rows contains the last 3 rows (B, C, D). When you call setRangeStart(4), it will try to position you at row 4. Since the index is 0-based, it finds that there is no row. Since the default range size is 1, it will position you to the last row (row index 3).

Then, when you call getRangeSize(3), it tries to fill up the range from the bottom. This is why you get (B, C, D).

Specified by:
setRangeStart in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
start - the absolute index of the new first row in the Row Set Iterator range.

scrollRange

public int scrollRange(int amount)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator

Specified by:
scrollRangeTo in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
row - the row.
index - the range index at which the row is to be found.

insertRowAtRangeIndex

public void insertRowAtRangeIndex(int index,
                                  Row row)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Inserts a row to the Row Set at the given range index. The index is relative to the range, i.e., index of 0 would mean to insert before the first row of the range. Allowed values for index is 0 to range size. If index equals range size, the row is inserted right after the last row in the range. This method call does not alter the current position of the iterator, nor does it affect the range position.

an array of Row objects. The size if the array is setViewSize().

findByKey

public Row[] findByKey(Key key,
                       int maxNumOfRows)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Finds and returns View rows that match the specified key.

If this View Object has multiple Entity Object bases, the key need not be specified for all. However, if a key is specified for n-th Entity Object, and if this Entity Object's primary key consists of multiple parts, all parts of the key must be specified.

If not all Entity keys are included, multiple rows may match the partial key. The maxNumOfRows parameter is used to specify the maximum number of rows to return.

For example, suppose the View Object has Emp and DeptLocation as its Entity Object bases. Suppose further that Emp has a one part primary key (employee number) and DeptLocation has a two part primary key (dept name and location).

The user can make the following call to look for all employees working in ACCOUNTING's NEW YORK office:

    // The key will consist of 3 parts.  The first part is
    // for the employee number (which is null, meaning not
    // specified).  The second part is the department name.
    // The third is the location.
    Object [] keyValues = new Object[3];

    keyValues[0] = null;  // All employees
    keyValues[1] = "ACCOUNTING";
    keyValues[4] = "NEW YORK"; // third Entity Object, key part 1

    Row[] rows = myAM.findByKey(new Key(keyValues), -1);
 

In this example, if you were to include the key for DeptLocation, you must specify both key parts.

Note that the position of the key must patch the order of the Entity Object bases and their keys. In the above example, keyValues[0] is always the employee number. You cannot specify the employee number in keyValues[1] or keyValues[2].

This method works even on a View Object which has no Entity Object base. For this to work, however, the ViewObject's key attribute list must have been set up through a call to ViewObjectImpl.setKeyAttributeDefs(int[]). For example, suppose we have a View Object with 5 attributes where attribute 0 and 2 are to be its key attributes.

Then, the following code block will retrieve all rows whose attribute 0 is "PERM" and attribute 2 is 30.

    // First set up the key attributes
    myVO.setKeyAttributeDefs(new int[] { 0, 2 });

    // The key will consist of 2 parts.  The first part is
    // for attribtue 0 and the second is for attribute 2.
    Object [] keyValues = new Object[2];

    keyValues[0] = "PERM";
    keyValues[1] = new Integer(30);

    Row[] rows = myAM.findByKey(new Key(keyValues), -1);
 

Internally, findByKey() works as follows for a View Object with Entity Object bases: It takes the first non-null entity key from key. It uses it to find the Entity row in the cache. If it finds it, then it looks at all View rows in the Row Set collection that uses that Entity row and apply the remaining keys to qualify them. It may or may not find as many rows as requested.

If the requested number of rows have been found, the array returns. Otherwise, a check is made to see if the View Object's fetch size is unlimited (which is -1, see ViewObject.setMaxFetchSize(int)) and the Row Set has fetched all the rows out of database into its collection. If this is the case, we return the array even if the requested number of rows have not been found. This is because these conditions imply that all rows have been brought into Row Set collection and no further search is necessary.

Otherwise (the requested number of rows not yet found and the Row Set has not yet fetched all rows or the fetch size is not -1), the search continues. We now use the key build a where-clause for an internal View Object. That where-clause is applied and qualifying rows are retrieved from it to find the requested number of rows.

For a View Object which has no Entity Object base, we simply skip the step of looking in the Entity Object cache. Other than that, the logic is applied.

As new rows are retrieved from database they are added to the Row Set collection. Thus, the user can work with these rows immediately, e.g., call RowIterator.setCurrentRow(Row) with one of them. Care is applied to make sure the same row is not added to the Row Set collection multiple times.

This method does not fire any navigation event, nor does it move the range or the current row. Also, as rows are added to the Row Set collection, no insertion event fires (as this is analogous to fetching rows).

See RowIterator.getRow(Key) for comparison between this method and getRow(Key).

Specified by:
findByKey in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
key - the key to match.
maxNumOfRows - the maximum size of the array to return, or -1 to return all rows.
Returns:
an array of rows matching the key.

findByAltKey

public RowIterator findByAltKey(java.lang.String keyName,
                                Key key,
                                int maxNumOfRows,
                                boolean skipWhere)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Same as RowIterator.findByKey(Key, int) with a few extra functionalities. The key is for an alternate key. You can specifcy the alternate key name through the keyName parameter.

A skipWhere parameter controls whether or notthe current view object's where-clause is included in the db query if a db query is issued to get the row(s).

It returns a RowIterator and not a row array. You can enumerate through rows of this row iterator.

Specified by:
findByAltKey in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
keyName - the name of the alternate key. If null the primary key is specified, i.e., this function call becomes equivalent to findByKey with skipWhere = false.
key - the alternate key to match.
maxNumOfRows - the maximum size of the array to return, or -1 to return all rows.
skipWhere - A flag that controls whether, when a db query is issued to get the matching row(s), the view object's current where-clause is to be included in the query or not.
Returns:
an array of rows matching the alternate key.

findByViewCriteria

public RowIterator findByViewCriteria(ViewCriteria criteria,
                                      int maxNumOfRows,
                                      int queryMode)
Description copied from interface: RowIterator
Finds and returns View rows that match the specified View Criteria. See ViewCriteria for details on how to build and use a View Criteria.

The queryMode parameter controls the manner in which the qualifying View rows are searched. See the QUERY_MODE_... constants in ViewObject for different contants that can be specified (they can be OR'ed together).

If QUERY_MODE_SCAN_VIEW_ROWS is specified, the existing View rows in the current Row Set are scanned for matching rows.

If QUERY_MODE_SCAN_ENTITY_ROWS is specified, the Entity cache is searched for qualifying rows. If qualifying rows are found, they are added to the current Row Set. I.e., they become part of the current row collection. Internally, a finder View Object is created to search the Entity cache and to produce View rows from the Entity cache.

If QUERY_MODE_SCAN_DATABASE_TABLES is specified, a database query is issued to find matching rows. The View Criteria is converted into a where-clause. ViewObject.applyViewCriteria(ViewCriteria) on the finder View Object is invoked and the query executed.

Upon completion of this operation, the finder View Object is closed and removed.

Specified by:
findByViewCriteria in interface RowIterator
Parameters:
criteria - the View Criteria to be used to qualify View rows.
maxNumOfRows - the maximum size of the array to return, or -1 to return all rows. If a value other than -1 is specified and if the specified number of rows is reached, the method returns without performing any further operation.
queryMode - the mode in which qualify View rows are scanned. See above for further info.
Returns:
a RowSet (parented by the same View Object as this RowIterator) that contains qualifying rows. For convenience, this RowSet's range size is initialized to -1 (all rows).

createKey

writeXML

public Node writeXML(int depthCount,
                     long options)
Description copied from interface: XMLInterface
Renders data in a canonical XML-format. The classes ViewObjectImpl and ViewRowImpl implement this method to render data in XML.

Use this method whenever data is required in XML format, either to present a UI (after converting XML data into some HTTP format using a stylesheet) or to pass the data as payload for messages via JMS.

The depthcount parameter represents to what level the rendering should recurse. A depthcount of zero (0) means do not traverse any View Links while rendering. One (1) means traverse the View Links on this object but no View Links thereafter, and so on.

The options parameter represents a set of bit flags that will control the writeXML behavior. The following bit flags have been defined:

Specified by:
writeXML in interface XMLInterface
Parameters:
depthCount - represents to what level the rendering should recurse.
options - a set of bit flags that will control the writeXML behavior.

writeXML

public Node writeXML(long options,
                     java.util.HashMap voAttrMap)
Description copied from interface: XMLInterface
Renders data in a canonical XML-format. The classes ViewObjectImpl and ViewRowImpl implement this method to render data in XML.

Use this method whenever data is required in XML format, either to present a UI (after converting XML data into some HTTP format using a stylesheet) or to pass the data as payload for messages via JMS.

The options parameter represents a set of bit flags that will control the writeXML behavior. The following bit flags have been defined:

The voAttrMap parameter represents in a hashmap, the mapping between a given ViewObject's definition type and the corresponding Attributes/accessors to render. A null entry in the hashmap means, render all attributes and accessors of that viewobject type.

Specified by:
writeXML in interface XMLInterface
Parameters:
options - a set of bit flags that will control the writeXML
voAttrMap - HashMap containing Definition names of ViewObjects and an array of AttributeDef to render for a ViewObject of that definition type.

writeXML

public Node writeXML(long options,
                     java.util.HashMap voAttrMap,
                     XSLStylesheet xslt)
Specified by:
writeXML in interface XMLInterface

deepCopy

public RowSet deepCopy(java.util.HashMap voAttrMap,
                       long options)
Description copied from interface: RowSet
This method performs a copy of view rows and the Entity row references of the view rows that belong to this RowSet. To avoid unique key constraint violations, the values of the key attributes are not copied.

voAttrMap attribute could be used to specify a subset of the attributes that need to be copied. The map consists of name value pairs of the view object name and its attributes.

By including the name of the Accessor in the voAttrMap as a key, deep copy could be used to copy rows obtained by traversing the view links.

Example 1: Deep copy a OrderLine RowSet copying attributes value of Item ID, Order ID and Description of a OrderLine view row.

     voOrderLine     = myAM.findViewObject("OrderLine");
     attrFilter      = new HashMap();
     filterAttrDefs  = new ArrayList();
     filterAttrDefs.add("ItemID");
     filterAttrDefs.add("OrderID");
     filterAttrDefs.add("Description");
     attrFilter.put(voOrderLine.getDefFullName(), 
                   (String[]) filterAttrDefs.toArray(new String[filterAttrDefs.size()]));
     RowSet rsOrderLinesCopy = rsOrderLines.deepCopy(attrFilter, RowSet.COPY_OPT_ALL_ROWS);
 
Row API could be used to set the primary keys on the newly created rows and eventually the transaction commit would insert the rows in the database.

Example 2: Deep copy a set of Orders and their Lines. Copy the Customer attribute from an Order and Item ID, Description from Order Lines.

     voOrder         = myAM.findViewObject("Order");
     voOrderLine     = myAM.findViewObject("OrderLine");
     attrFilter      = new HashMap();
     filterAttrDefs  = new ArrayList();
     filterAttrDefs.add("Customer");
     // The name of the Order Line Accessor
     filterAttrDefs.add("Lines");
     attrFilter.put(voOrder.getDefFullName(), 
                   (String[]) filterAttrDefs.toArray(new String[filterAttrDefs.size()]));
     filterAttrDefs  = new ArrayList();
     filterAttrDefs.add("ItemID");
     filterAttrDefs.add("Description");
     attrFilter.put(voOrderLine.getDefFullName(), 
                   (String[]) filterAttrDefs.toArray(new String[filterAttrDefs.size()]));
     RowSet rsCopy = rs.deepCopy(attrFilter, RowSet.COPY_OPT_ALL_ROWS);
 
For each Order row in the copied rowset the accessor could be used to get its Order Lines. If there is Cascade update set on the association, setting the Order number on an Order row would update the foreign key in its Order Line rows.

Specified by:
deepCopy in interface RowSet
Parameters:
voAttrMap - a name value pair of a View Object name and an array of its AttributeDef objects or an array of attribute names. A null value for this parameter results in copying all the non-key attribute values of this RowSet. View Links are not traversed for a null value.
options - valid values are RowSet.COPY_OPT_ALL_ROWS and RowSet.COPY_OPT_LIMIT_RANGE.
Returns:
a deep copy of the RowSet
