This interface can be implemented to represent a single mount point.

It provides function to get the absolute mounted uri and a shortcut method to post events via the DmtAdmin.

 java.lang.String[] getMountPath()
          Provides the absolute mount path of this MountPoint
 int hashCode()
          This object must provide a suitable hash function such that a Mount Point given in MountPlugin.mountPointAdded(MountPoint) has the same hashCode as the corresponding Mount Point in MountPlugin.mountPointRemoved(MountPoint).
 void postEvent(java.lang.String topic, java.lang.String[] relativeURIs, java.util.Dictionary properties)
          Posts an event via the DmtAdmin about changes in the current plugins subtree.
 void postEvent(java.lang.String topic, java.lang.String[] relativeURIs, java.lang.String[] newRelativeURIs, java.util.Dictionary properties)

Method Detail

getMountPath

java.lang.String[] getMountPath()
Provides the absolute mount path of this MountPoint

Returns:
the absolute mount path of this MountPoint

postEvent

void postEvent(java.lang.String topic,
               java.lang.String[] relativeURIs,
               java.util.Dictionary properties)
Posts an event via the DmtAdmin about changes in the current plugins subtree.

This method distributes Events asynchronously to the EventAdmin as well as to matching local DmtEventListeners.

Parameters:
topic - the topic of the event to send. Valid values are:
  • org/osgi/service/dmt/DmtEvent/ADDED if the change was caused by an add action
  • org/osgi/service/dmt/DmtEvent/DELETED if the change was caused by a delete action
  • org/osgi/service/dmt/DmtEvent/REPLACED if the change was caused by a replace action
Must not be null.
relativeURIs - an array of affected node URI's. All URI's specified here are relative to the current MountPoint's mountPath. The value of this parameter determines the value of the event property EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES. An empty array or null is permitted. In both cases the value of the events EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES property will be set to an empty array.
properties - an optional parameter that can be provided to add properties to the Event that is going to be send by the DMTAdmin. If the properties contain a key EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES, then the value of this property is ignored and will be overwritten by relativeURIs.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if the topic has not one of the defined values

postEvent

void postEvent(java.lang.String topic,
               java.lang.String[] relativeURIs,
               java.lang.String[] newRelativeURIs,
               java.util.Dictionary properties)
Posts an event via the DmtAdmin about changes in the current plugins subtree.

This method distributes Events asynchronously to the EventAdmin as well as to matching local DmtEventListeners.

Parameters:
topic - the topic of the event to send. Valid values are:
  • org/osgi/service/dmt/DmtEvent/RENAMED if the change was caused by a rename action
  • org/osgi/service/dmt/DmtEvent/COPIED if the change was caused by a copy action
Must not be null.
relativeURIs - an array of affected node URI's.

All URI's specified here are relative to the current MountPoint's mountPath. The value of this parameter determines the value of the event property EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES. An empty array or null is permitted. In both cases the value of the events EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES property will be set to an empty array.

newRelativeURIs - an array of affected node URI's.The value of this parameter determines the value of the event property EVENT_PROPERTY_NEW_NODES. An empty array or null is permitted. In both cases the value of the events EVENT_PROPERTY_NEW_NODES property will be set to an empty array.
properties - an optional parameter that can be provided to add properties to the Event that is going to be send by the DMTAdmin. If the properties contain the keys EVENT_PROPERTY_NODES or EVENT_PROPERTY_NEW_NODES, then the values of these properties are ignored and will be overwritten by relativeURIs and newRelativeURIs.
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if the topic has not one of the defined values

hashCode

int hashCode()
This object must provide a suitable hash function such that a Mount Point given in MountPlugin.mountPointAdded(MountPoint) has the same hashCode as the corresponding Mount Point in MountPlugin.mountPointRemoved(MountPoint). Object.hashCode()

Overrides:
hashCode in class java.lang.Object

equals

boolean equals(java.lang.Object other)
This object must provide a suitable hash function such that a Mount Point given in MountPlugin.mountPointAdded(MountPoint) is equal to the corresponding Mount Point in MountPlugin.mountPointRemoved(MountPoint). Object.equals(Object)

Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object
