JIDLObjectI

JIDLObjectI

Declaration


public interface JIDLObjectI

All Known Implementing Classes:


JIDLObject, JIDLCanvas

Description


The interface that wrapped IDL objects must implement. Both non-drawable and drawable IDL objects implement this interface.

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;

Methods


abort()

public void abort()

Requests that the IDL process containing the underlying IDL object abort its current activity.

This is only a request and IDL may take a long time before it actually stops.

The client can only Abort the current IDL activity if that wrapper object is the current “owner” of the underlying IDL.

Throws:

JIDLExceptions - If IDL encounters an error.

See Also:

JIDLAbortedException

addIDLNotifyListener(JIDLNotifyListener)

public void addIDLNotifyListener(com.idl.javaidl.JIDLNotifyListener listener)

Adds the specified IDL notify listener to receive IDL notification events on this object.

Note: Registering/unregistering for events should happen in the initListeners method or AFTER the createObject method.

Parameters:

listener - the listener

addIDLOutputListener(JIDLOutputListener)

public void addIDLOutputListener(com.idl.javaidl.JIDLOutputListener listener)

Adds the specified IDL output listener to receive IDL output events on this object. Note that registering/unregistering for events should happen in the initListeners method or AFTER the createObject method.

Parameters:

listener - the listener

callFunction(String, int, Object[], int[], int)

public java.lang.Object callFunction(java.lang.String sMethodName, int argc, java.lang.Object[] argv, int[] argpal, int iPalFlag)

Call IDL function.

The argpal parameter is an array of flags created by OR-ing constants from class JIDLConst. Each array element corresponds to the equivalent parameter in argv.

Parameters:

sMethodName - the procedure name

argc - the number of parameters

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 JIDLObject.

argpal - array of flags denoting whether each argv parameter passed to be bridge is 1) in-out vs constant; or 2) a convolved or non-convolved array This array should be of length argc.

iPalFlag - a flag determining whether a returned array if convolved or not. If the returned value is not an array, this value is zero.

Returns:

an Object of type JIDLNumber, JIDLString, JIDLObjectI or JIDLArray. The caller must know the type of the Object being returned and cast it to its proper type.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

See Also:

JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString, JIDLArray, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONST, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_IN_OUT, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONVMAJORITY, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_NO_CONVMAJORITY

callProcedure(String, int, Object[], int[])

public void callProcedure(java.lang.String sMethodName, int argc, java.lang.Object[] argv, int[] argpal)

Call IDL procedure.

The argpal parameter is an array of flags created by OR-ing constants from class JIDLConst. Each array element corresponds to the equivalent parameter in argv.

Parameters:

sMethodName - the procedure name

argc - the number of parameters

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 JIDLObject.

argpal - array of flags denoting whether each argv parameter passed to be bridge is 1) in-out vs constant; or 2) a convolved or non-convolved array This array should be of length argc.

JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString, JIDLArray, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONST, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_IN_OUT, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONVMAJORITY, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_NO_CONVMAJORITY

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

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

Creates the underlying IDL object. 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, and argpal to 0, null, and 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.

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.

initializer - a JIDLProcessInitializer object that specifies IDL process initialization parameters such as the licensing mode to be used.

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.

executeString(String)

public void executeString(java.lang.String sCmd)

Execute the given command string in IDL.

Parameters:

sCmd - the single-line command to execute in IDL.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

getCookie()

public long getCookie()

Internal use.

getIDLObjectClassName()

public java.lang.String getIDLObjectClassName()

Retrieves the IDL object class name of the underlying IDL object.

Returns:

the IDL object class name

getIDLObjectVariableName()

public java.lang.String getIDLObjectVariableName()

When the underlying IDL object was created in the IDL process, it was assigned a variable name. This method retrieves that name.

Returns:

the variable name

getIDLVariable(String)

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

Given a variable name, return the IDL variable.

Note: In the case of arrays, the array will ALWAYS be convolved when passed between Java and IDL.

Parameters:

sVar - The IDL variable name

Returns:

an Object of type JIDLNumber, JIDLString, JIDLObject or JIDLArray. The caller must know the type of the Object being returned and cast it to its proper type. May also return null.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

getProcessName()

public java.lang.String getProcessName()

Returns the name of the process that contains the underlying IDL object. For an in- process object, returns an empty string.

Returns:

process name. Empty string if the process is in-process.

getProperty(String, int)

public java.lang.Object getProperty(java.lang.StringsProperty, int iPalFlag)

Call IDL getProperty method to get named property.

Parameters:

sProperty - the property name

iPalFlag - a flag determining whether a returned array will be convolved or not. If the returned value is not is ignored.

Returns:

an Object of type JIDLNumber, JIDLString, JIDLObject or JIDLArray. The caller must know the type of the Object being returned and cast it to its proper type. May also return null.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

See Also:

JIDLNumber, JIDLObjectI, JIDLString, JIDLArray, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONVMAJORITY, JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_NO_CONVMAJORITY

initListeners()

public void initListeners()

public boolean isObjectCreated()

Determine if object has been created successfully.

Returns:

true if object created successfully, or false if object not created or creation was unsuccessful.

isObjectDisplayable()

public boolean isObjectDisplayable()

removeIDLNotifyListener(JIDLNotifyListener)

public void removeIDLNotifyListener(com.idl.javaidl.JIDLNotifyListener listener)

Removes the specified IDL notify listener so it no longer receives IDL notifications.

Note: Registering/unregistering for events should happen in the initListeners method or AFTER the createObject method.

Parameters:

listener - the listener

removeIDLOutputListener(JIDLOutputListener)

public void removeIDLOutputListener(com.idl.javaidl.JIDLOutputListener listener)

Removes the specified IDL output listener on this object.

Note: Registering/unregistering for events should happen in the initListeners method or AFTER the createObject method.

Parameters:

listener - the listener

setIDLVariable(String, Object)

public void setIDLVariable(java.lang.String sVar, java.lang.Object obj)

Parameters:

sVar - the IDL variable name

obj - object to be passed to IDL. Should be an object of type JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString or JIDLArray.

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.

setProcessName(String)

public void setProcessName(java.lang.String process)

Set the process name that the object will be created in.

The process name may only be set before createObject is called. If called after the object has been created, this method call does nothing.

Parameters:

process - Process name. Empty String means create in same process (in-process).

setProperty(String, Object, int)

public void setProperty(java.lang.String sProperty, java.lang.Object obj, int iPalFlag)

Call IDL setProperty method to set named property.

The iPalFlag parameter is a set of flags that are or-ed together. Currently this parameter is only used to specify whether a JIDLArray being passed in to IDL is convolved or not. For arrays argpal should be set to either JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_CONVMAJORITY or JIDLConst.PARMFLAG_NO_CONVMAJORITY.

Parameters:

sProperty - the property name

obj - object to be passed to IDL. Should be an object of type JIDLNumber, JIDLObject, JIDLString or JIDLObject.

iPalFlag - flag denoting whether the passed in parameter is convolved or not. Note: setProperty does not allow obj to be modified by IDL

Throws:

JIDLException - If IDL encounters an error.
