javax.sql.rowset.spi
Class SyncFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.sql.rowset.spi.SyncFactory

public class SyncFactory
extends Object

The Service Provider Interface (SPI) mechanism that generates SyncProvider instances to be used by disconnected RowSet objects. The SyncProvider instances in turn provide the javax.sql.RowSetReader object the RowSet object needs to populate itself with data and the javax.sql.RowSetWriter object it needs to propagate changes to its data back to the underlying data source.

Because the methods in the SyncFactory class are all static, there is only one SyncFactory object per Java VM at any one time. This ensures that there is a single source from which a RowSet implementation can obtain its SyncProvider implementation.

1.0 Overview

The SyncFactory class provides an internal registry of available synchronization provider implementations (SyncProvider objects). This registry may be queried to determine which synchronization providers are available. The following line of code gets an enumeration of the providers currently registered.
     java.util.Enumeration e = SyncFactory.getRegisteredProviders();
 
All standard RowSet implementations must provide at least two providers: Note that the JDBC RowSet Implementations include the SyncProvider implemtations RIOptimisticProvider and RIXmlProvider, which satisfy this requirement.

The SyncFactory class provides accessor methods to assist applications in determining which synchronization providers are currently registered with the SyncFactory.

Other methods let RowSet persistence providers be registered or de-registered with the factory mechanism. This allows additional synchronization provider implementations to be made available to RowSet objects at run time.

Applications can apply a degree of filtering to determine the level of synchronization that a SyncProvider implementation offers. The following criteria determine whether a provider is made available to a RowSet object:

  1. If a particular provider is specified by a RowSet object, and the SyncFactory does not contain a reference to this provider, a SyncFactoryException is thrown stating that the synchronization provider could not be found.

  2. If a RowSet implementation is instantiated with a specified provider and the specified provider has been properly registered, the requested provider is supplied. Otherwise a SyncFactoryException is thrown.

  3. If a RowSet object does not specify a SyncProvider implementation and no additional SyncProvider implementations are available, the reference implementation providers are supplied.

2.0 Registering SyncProvider Implementations

Both vendors and developers can register SyncProvider implementations using one of the following mechanisms.

Next, an application will register the JNDI context with the SyncFactory instance. This allows the SyncFactory to browse within the JNDI context looking for SyncProvider implementations.
    Hashtable appEnv = new Hashtable();
    appEnv.put(Context.INITIAL_CONTEXT_FACTORY, "CosNaming");
    appEnv.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "iiop://hostname/providers");
    Context ctx = new InitialContext(appEnv);

    SyncFactory.registerJNDIContext(ctx);
 
If a RowSet object attempts to obtain a MyProvider object, the SyncFactory will try to locate it. First it searches for it in the system properties, then it looks in the resource files, and finally it checks the JNDI context that has been set. The SyncFactory instance verifies that the requested provider is a valid extension of the SyncProvider abstract class and then gives it to the RowSet object. In the following code fragment, a new CachedRowSet object is created and initialized with env, which contains the binding to MyProvider.
    Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
    env.put(SyncFactory.ROWSET_SYNC_PROVIDER, "com.fred.providers.MyProvider");
    CachedRowSet crs = new com.sun.rowset.CachedRowSetImpl(env); 
 
Further details on these mechanisms are available in the javax.sql.rowset.spi package specification.

Field Detail

ROWSET_SYNC_PROVIDER

public static String ROWSET_SYNC_PROVIDER
The standard property-id for a synchronization provider implementation name.


ROWSET_SYNC_VENDOR

public static String ROWSET_SYNC_VENDOR
The standard property-id for a synchronization provider implementation vendor name.


ROWSET_SYNC_PROVIDER_VERSION

public static String ROWSET_SYNC_PROVIDER_VERSION
The standard property-id for a synchronization provider implementation version tag.

Method Detail

registerProvider

public static void registerProvider(String providerID)
                             throws SyncFactoryException
Adds the the given synchronization provider to the factory register. Guidelines are provided in the SyncProvider specification for the required naming conventions for SyncProvider implementations.

Synchronization providers bound to a JNDI context can be registered by binding a SyncProvider instance to a JNDI namespace.

Furthermore, an initial JNDI context should be set with the SyncFactory using the setJNDIContext method. The SyncFactory leverages this context to search for available SyncProvider objects bound to the JNDI context and its child nodes.

Parameters:
providerID - A String object with the unique ID of the synchronization provider being registered
Throws:
SyncFactoryException - if an attempt is made to supply an empty or null provider name
See Also:
setJNDIContext(javax.naming.Context)

getSyncFactory

public static SyncFactory getSyncFactory()
Returns the SyncFactory singleton.

Returns:
the SyncFactory instance

unregisterProvider

public static void unregisterProvider(String providerID)
                               throws SyncFactoryException
Removes the designated currently registered synchronization provider from the Factory SPI register.

Parameters:
providerID - The unique-id of the synchronization provider
Throws:
SyncFactoryException - If an attempt is made to unregister a SyncProvider implementation that was not registered.

getInstance

public static SyncProvider getInstance(String providerID)
                                throws SyncFactoryException
Returns the SyncProvider instance identified by providerID.

Parameters:
providerID - the unique identifier of the provider
Returns:
a SyncProvider implementation
Throws:
SyncFactoryException - If the SyncProvider cannot be found or some error was encountered when trying to invoke this provider.

getRegisteredProviders

public static Enumeration<SyncProvider> getRegisteredProviders()
                                                        throws SyncFactoryException
Returns an Enumeration of currently registered synchronization providers. A RowSet implementation may use any provider in the enumeration as its SyncProvider object.

At a minimum, the reference synchronization provider allowing RowSet content data to be stored using a JDBC driver should be possible.

Returns:
Enumeration A enumeration of available synchronization providers that are registered with this Factory
Throws:
SyncFactoryException

setLogger

public static void setLogger(Logger logger)
Sets the logging object to be used by the SyncProvider implementation provided by the SyncFactory. All SyncProvider implementations can log their events to this object and the application can retrieve a handle to this object using the getLogger method.

This method checks to see that there is an SQLPermission object which grants the permission setSyncFactory before allowing the method to succeed. If a SecurityManager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setLogger, this method throws a java.lang.SecurityException.

Parameters:
logger - A Logger object instance
Throws:
SecurityException - if a security manager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setLogger
See Also:
SecurityManager.checkPermission(java.security.Permission)

setLogger

public static void setLogger(Logger logger,
                             Level level)
Sets the logging object that is used by SyncProvider implementations provided by the SyncFactory SPI. All SyncProvider implementations can log their events to this object and the application can retrieve a handle to this object using the getLogger method.

This method checks to see that there is an SQLPermission object which grants the permission setSyncFactory before allowing the method to succeed. If a SecurityManager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setLogger, this method throws a java.lang.SecurityException.

Parameters:
logger - a Logger object instance
level - a Level object instance indicating the degree of logging required
Throws:
SecurityException - if a security manager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setLogger
See Also:
SecurityManager.checkPermission(java.security.Permission)

getLogger

public static Logger getLogger()
                        throws SyncFactoryException
Returns the logging object for applications to retrieve synchronization events posted by SyncProvider implementations.

Throws:
SyncFactoryException - if no logging object has been set.

setJNDIContext

public static void setJNDIContext(Context ctx)
                           throws SyncFactoryException
Sets the initial JNDI context from which SyncProvider implementations can be retrieved from a JNDI namespace

This method checks to see that there is an SQLPermission object which grants the permission setSyncFactory before allowing the method to succeed. If a SecurityManager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setJNDIContext, this method throws a java.lang.SecurityException.

Parameters:
ctx - a valid JNDI context
Throws:
SyncFactoryException - if the supplied JNDI context is null
SecurityException - if a security manager exists and its checkPermission method denies calling setJNDIContext
