Interface ReadWriteDataSession

All Superinterfaces:
ReadableDataSession
All Known Subinterfaces:
TransactionalDataSession

public interface ReadWriteDataSession
extends ReadableDataSession

Provides non-atomic read-write access to the part of the tree handled by the plugin that created this session.

The nodePath parameters appearing in this interface always contain an array of path segments identifying a node in the subtree of this plugin. This parameter contains an absolute path, so the first segment is always ".". Special characters appear escaped in the segments.

Error handling

When a tree manipulation command is called on the DmtAdmin service, it must perform an extensive set of checks on the parameters and the authority of the caller before delegating the call to a plugin. Therefore plugins can take certain circumstances for granted: that the path is valid and is within the subtree of the plugin and the session, the command can be applied to the given node (e.g. the target of setNodeValue is a leaf node), etc. All errors described by the error codes DmtException.INVALID_URI, DmtException.URI_TOO_LONG, DmtException.PERMISSION_DENIED, DmtException.COMMAND_NOT_ALLOWED and DmtException.TRANSACTION_ERROR are fully filtered out before control reaches the plugin.

If the plugin provides meta-data for a node, the DmtAdmin service must also check the constraints specified by it, as described in MetaNode. If the plugin does not provide meta-data, it must perform the necessary checks for itself and use the DmtException.METADATA_MISMATCH error code to indicate such discrepancies.

The DmtAdmin does not check that the targeted node exists (or that it does not exist, in case of a node creation) before calling the plugin. It is the responsibility of the plugin to perform this check and to throw a DmtException.NODE_NOT_FOUND or DmtException.NODE_ALREADY_EXISTS if needed. In this case the DmtAdmin must pass through this exception to the caller of the corresponding DmtSession method.

The plugin can use the remaining error codes as needed. If an error does not fit into any other category, the DmtException.COMMAND_FAILED code should be used.

Method Detail

copy

void copy(java.lang.String[] nodePath,
          java.lang.String[] newNodePath,
          boolean recursive)
          throws DmtException
Create a copy of a node or a whole subtree. Beside the structure and values of the nodes, most properties managed by the plugin must also be copied, with the exception of the Timestamp and Version properties.

Parameters:
nodePath - an absolute path specifying the node or the root of a subtree to be copied
newNodePath - the absolute path of the new node or root of a subtree
recursive - false if only a single node is copied, true if the whole subtree is copied
Throws:
DmtException - with the following possible error codes:
  • NODE_NOT_FOUND if nodePath points to a non-existing node, or if newNodePath points to a node that cannot exist in the tree
  • NODE_ALREADY_EXISTS if newNodePath points to a node that already exists
  • METADATA_MISMATCH if the node could not be copied because of meta-data restrictions
  • FEATURE_NOT_SUPPORTED if the copy operation is not supported by the plugin
  • DATA_STORE_FAILURE if an error occurred while accessing the data store
  • COMMAND_FAILED if some unspecified error is encountered while attempting to complete the command
java.lang.SecurityException - if the caller does not have the necessary permissions to execute the underlying management operation

                    throws DmtException

                java.lang.String newName)
                throws DmtException
Rename a node. This operation only changes the name of the node (updating the timestamp and version properties if they are supported), the value and the other properties are not changed. The new name of the node must be provided, the new path is constructed from the base of the old path and the given name.

Parameters:
nodePath - the absolute path of the node to rename
newName - the new name property of the node
Throws:
DmtException - with the following possible error codes:
  • NODE_NOT_FOUND if nodePath points to a non-existing node, or if the new node is not defined in the tree
  • NODE_ALREADY_EXISTS if there already exists a sibling of nodePath with the name newName
  • METADATA_MISMATCH if the node could not be renamed because of meta-data restrictions
  • DATA_STORE_FAILURE if an error occurred while accessing the data store
  • COMMAND_FAILED if some unspecified error is encountered while attempting to complete the command
java.lang.SecurityException - if the caller does not have the necessary permissions to execute the underlying management operation

                  java.lang.String title)
                  throws DmtException
Set the title property of a node. The length of the title is guaranteed not to exceed the limit of 255 bytes in UTF-8 encoding.

Parameters:
nodePath - the absolute path of the node
title - the title text of the node, can be null
Throws:

void setNodeType(java.lang.String[] nodePath,
                 java.lang.String type)
                 throws DmtException
Set the type of a node. The type of leaf node is the MIME type of the data it contains. The type of an interior node is a URI identifying a DDF document.

For interior nodes, the null type should remove the reference (if any) to a DDF document overriding the tree structure defined by the ancestors. For leaf nodes, it requests that the default MIME type is used for the given node.

Parameters:
nodePath - the absolute path of the node
type - the type of the node, can be null
Throws:
DmtException - with the following possible error codes:
  • NODE_NOT_FOUND if nodePath points to a non-existing node
  • METADATA_MISMATCH if the type could not be set because of meta-data restrictions
  • DATA_STORE_FAILURE if an error occurred while accessing the data store
  • COMMAND_FAILED if some unspecified error is encountered while attempting to complete the command

DmtSession.setNodeType(String, String)

setNodeValue

void setNodeValue(java.lang.String[] nodePath,
                  DmtData data)
                  throws DmtException
Set the value of a leaf or interior node. The format of the node is contained in the DmtData object. For interior nodes, the format is FORMAT_NODE, while for leaf nodes this format is never used.

If the specified value is null, the default value must be taken; if there is no default value, a DmtException with error code METADATA_MISMATCH must be thrown.

Parameters:

data - the data to be set, can be null
Throws:
DmtException - with the following possible error codes:
  • NODE_NOT_FOUND if nodePath points to a non-existing node
  • METADATA_MISMATCH if the value could not be set because of meta-data restrictions
  • FEATURE_NOT_SUPPORTED if the specified node is an interior node and does not support Java object values
  • DATA_STORE_FAILURE if an error occurred while accessing the data store
  • COMMAND_FAILED if some unspecified error is encountered while attempting to complete the command
java.lang.SecurityException - if the caller does not have the necessary permissions to execute the underlying management operation
