heimbase - Man Page

Registers a DB type for use with heim_db_create().

Synopsis

Detailed Description

Registers a DB type for use with heim_db_create().

heim_db_register

Parameters:

dbtype Name of DB type
data Private data argument to the dbtype's openf method
plugin Structure with DB type methods (function pointers)

Backends that provide begin/commit/rollback methods must provide ACID semantics.

The registered DB type will have ACID semantics for backends that do not provide begin/commit/rollback methods but do provide lock/unlock and rdjournal/wrjournal methods (using a replay log journalling scheme).

If the registered DB type does not natively provide read vs. write transaction isolation but does provide a lock method then the DB will provide read/write transaction isolation.

Returns:

ENOMEM on failure, else 0.

Open a database of the given dbtype.

Database type names can be composed of one or more pseudo-DB types and one concrete DB type joined with a '+' between each. For example: 'transaction+bdb' might be a Berkeley DB with a layer above that provides transactions.

Options may be provided via a dict (an associative array). Existing options include:

·

·

·

Parameters:

dbtype Name of DB type
dbname Name of DB (likely a file path)
options Options dict
db Output open DB handle
error Output error object

Returns:

a DB handle

Clone (duplicate) an open DB handle.

This is useful for multi-threaded applications. Applications must synchronize access to any given DB handle.

Returns EBUSY if there is an open transaction for the input db.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
error Output error object

Returns:

a DB handle

Open a transaction on the given db.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
error Output error object

Returns:

0 on success, system error otherwise

Commit an open transaction on the given db.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
error Output error object

Returns:

0 on success, system error otherwise

Rollback an open transaction on the given db.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
error Output error object

Returns:

0 on success, system error otherwise

Get type ID of heim_db_t objects.

Lookup a key's value in the DB.

Returns 0 on success, -1 if the key does not exist in the DB, or a system error number on failure.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
key Key
error Output error object

Returns:

the value (retained), if there is one for the given key

Set a key's value in the DB.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
key Key
value Value (if NULL the key will be deleted, but empty is OK)
error Output error object

Returns:

0 on success, system error otherwise

Delete a key and its value from the DB

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
key Key
error Output error object

Returns:

0 on success, system error otherwise

Iterate a callback function over keys and values from a DB.

Parameters:

db Open DB handle
iter_data Callback function's private data
iter_f Callback function, called once per-key/value pair
error Output error object

Get a node in a heim_object tree by path

Parameters:

ptr tree
error error (output)
ap NULL-terminated va_list of heim_object_ts that form a path

Returns:

object (not retained) if found

Get a node in a tree by path, with retained reference

Parameters:

ptr tree
error error (output)
ap NULL-terminated va_list of heim_object_ts that form a path

Returns:

retained object if found

Get a node in a tree by path

Parameters:

ptr tree
error error (output)
... NULL-terminated va_list of heim_object_ts that form a path

Returns:

object (not retained) if found

Get a node in a tree by path, with retained reference

Parameters:

ptr tree
error error (output)
... NULL-terminated va_list of heim_object_ts that form a path

Returns:

retained object if found

Create a path in a heim_object_t tree

Parameters:

ptr the tree
size the size of the heim_dict_t nodes to be created
leaf leaf node to be added, if any
error error (output)
ap NULL-terminated of path component objects

Create a path of heim_dict_t interior nodes in a given heim_object_t tree, as necessary, and set/replace a leaf, if given (if leaf is NULL then the leaf is not deleted).

Returns:

0 on success, else a system error

Create a path in a heim_object_t tree

Parameters:

ptr the tree
size the size of the heim_dict_t nodes to be created
leaf leaf node to be added, if any
error error (output)
... NULL-terminated list of path component objects

Create a path of heim_dict_t interior nodes in a given heim_object_t tree, as necessary, and set/replace a leaf, if given (if leaf is NULL then the leaf is not deleted).

Returns:

0 on success, else a system error

Delete leaf node named by a path in a heim_object_t tree

Parameters:

ptr the tree
error error (output)
ap NULL-terminated list of path component objects

Dump a heimbase object to stderr (useful from the debugger!)

Parameters:

obj object to dump using JSON or JSON-like format
