GemFire 6.6.4

Interface Delta


public interface Delta

This interface defines a contract between the application and GemFire that allows GemFire to determine whether an application object contains a delta, allows GemFire to extract the delta from an application object, and generate a new application object by applying a delta to an existing application object. The difference in object state is contained in the DataOutput and DataInput parameters.

Since:
6.1

Method Summary
 void fromDelta(DataInput in)
          This method is invoked on an existing application object when an update is received as a delta.
 boolean hasDelta()
          Returns true if this object has pending changes it can write out.
 void toDelta(DataOutput out)
          This method is invoked on an application object at the delta sender, if GemFire determines the presence of a delta by calling hasDelta() on the object.
 

Method Detail

hasDelta

boolean hasDelta()
Returns true if this object has pending changes it can write out.


toDelta

void toDelta(DataOutput out)
             throws IOException
This method is invoked on an application object at the delta sender, if GemFire determines the presence of a delta by calling hasDelta() on the object. The delta is written to the DataOutput object provided by GemFire. Any delta state should be reset in this method.

Throws:
IOException

fromDelta

void fromDelta(DataInput in)
               throws IOException,
                      InvalidDeltaException
This method is invoked on an existing application object when an update is received as a delta. This method throws an InvalidDeltaException when the delta in the DataInput cannot be applied to the object. GemFire automatically handles an InvalidDeltaException by reattempting the update by sending the full application object.

Throws:
IOException
InvalidDeltaException
