JIDLObjectI, java.io.Serializable

Description


This class wraps an IDL object.

In many of the methods of this class, one or more flags are required to be specified for parameters being passed to or from the bridge. These flags follow the following guidelines:

For all types of parameters (subclasses of JIDLNumber, JIDLString, JIDLObjectI and JIDLArray), a flag should be set that determines whether the parameter is in-only (const) or in-out (we expect it to be changed by IDL). The constants that determine this are either JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONST or JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_IN_OUT.

For parameters that are arrays, a flag should be set that tells the bridge whether the array is to be convolved when passed to IDL. If the PARM_IN_OUT flag is set, this flag will also tell the bridge whether to convolve the array when it is copied back to Java. The constants that determine this are either JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONVMAJORITY or JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_NO_CONVMAJORITY.

For example, if the parameter in question is an array that is to be modified by IDL (in-out) and needs to be convolved when passed to and from IDL, we would set its argpal array member as follows:

argpal[2] = JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_IN_OUT | JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONV MAJORITY;

createObject()

public void createObject()

Create the wrapped object by calling IDL’s ::INIT method.

Used for ::INIT methods that take zero parameters. Assumes a default JIDLProcessInitializer.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

See Also:

createObject(int, Object[], int[])

createObject(int, Object[], int[])

public void createObject(int argc, java.lang.Object[] argv, int[] argpal)

Create the wrapped object by calling IDL’s ::INIT method.

The argc, argv, argpal parameters are used to supply parameters to the underlying IDL object’s ::Init method.

If the ::Init method does not have any parameters, the caller sets argc, argv, argpal to 0, null, null, respectively. createObject does the following:

• Calls ::Init method in the IDL object

• Calls the superclass initListeners method to initialize any event handlers. The initListeners method has default behavior, which is different for graphical and non-graphical objects. If the default behavior is not desired, a sub-class to modify the listener initialization may override the initListeners method.

Specified By:

createObject in interface JIDLObjectI

Parameters:

argc - the number of parameters to be passed to INIT

argv - array of Objects to be passed to IDL. This array should be of length argc and should contain objects of type JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString or JIDLArray.

argpal - array of flags denoting whether each argv parameter that is of type array should be convolved or not. For parameters that are not arrays, the value within the array will always be 0.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

createObject(int, Object[], int[], JIDLProcessInitializer)

public void createObject(int argc, java.lang.Object[] argv, int[] argpal, com.idl.javaidl.JIDLProcessInitializer initializer)

Create the wrapped object by calling IDL’s ::INIT method.

The argc, argv, argpal parameters are used to supply parameters to the underlying IDL object’s ::Init method The initializer parameter is used to supply IDL process initialization values.

If the ::Init method does not have any parameters, the caller sets argc, argv, argpal to 0, null, null, respectively. createObject does the following:

• Calls ::Init method in the IDL object

• Calls the superclass initListeners method to initialize any event handlers. The initListeners method has default behavior, which is different for graphical and non-graphical objects. If the default behavior is not desired, a sub-class to modify the listener initialization may override the initListeners method.

Specified By:

createObject in interface JIDLObjectI

Parameters:

argc - the number of parameters to be passed to INIT

argv - array of Objects to be passed to IDL. This array should be of length argc and should contain objects of type JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString or JIDLArray.

argpal - array of flags denoting whether each argv parameter that is of type array should be convolved or not. For parameters that are not arrays, the value within the array will always be 0.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

createObject(JIDLProcessInitializer)

public void createObject(com.idl.javaidl.JIDLProcessInitializer initializer)

Create the wrapped object by calling IDL’s ::INIT method. Used for ::INIT methods that take zero parameters.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

destroyObject()

public void destroyObject()

Destroys the underlying IDL object associated with the wrapper.

If the object being destroyed is the last object within an OPS process, the OPS process is also destroyed.

Note: This does not destroy the actual wrapper object. Because the wrapper object is a Java object, it follows all the Java reference counting/garbage collection schemes. Once all references to the wrapper object are released from Java code and once the Java Virtual Machine calls the garbage collector, the wrapper object may be deleted from memory.

Specified By:

destroyObject in interface JIDLObjectI

executeString(String)

public void executeString(java.lang.String sCmd)

Specified By:

executeString in interface JIDLObjectI

getIDLObjectVariableName in interface JIDLObjectI

Returns:

the variable name

getIDLVariable(String)

public java.lang.Object getIDLVariable(java.lang.String sVar)

Given a variable name, return the IDL variable.

initListeners()

public void initListeners()

Initialize listeners.

This method is always called by createObject. The JIDLObject listens to no events, but this method may be overridden by sub-classes to initialize a different set of listeners (or none at all).

For example if a sub-class of JIDLObject wished to listen to IDL output events, it would need to implement JIDLOutputListener and register to listen for these events in initListeners, as follows:

  public class newObject extends JIDLObject implements JIDLOutputListener
  {
  public void initListeners()
  {
  addIDLOutputListener(this);
  }
  void IDLoutput(JIDLObjectI obj, String s)
  {
  // do something with the output
  }
  }
