NamedCache Class Reference

#include <coherence/net/NamedCache.hpp>

Inherits CacheMap, ConcurrentMap, InvocableMap, QueryMap, and ObservableMap.

Inherited by ContinuousQueryCache [virtual], and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache [virtual].

List of all members.


Detailed Description

A NamedCache is a Map that holds resources shared among members of a cluster.

These resources are expected to be managed in memory, and are typically composed of data that are also stored persistently in a database, or data that have been assembled or calculated at some significant cost, thus these resources are referred to as cached.

Member Function Documentation

virtual String::View getCacheName (  )  const [pure virtual]

Return the cache name.

Returns:
the cache name

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.

virtual CacheServiceHandle getCacheService (  )  [pure virtual]

Return the CacheService that this NamedCache is a part of.

Returns:
the CacheService

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.

virtual CacheServiceView getCacheService (  )  const [pure virtual]

Return the CacheService that this NamedCache is a part of.

Returns:
the CacheService

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.

virtual bool isActive (  )  const [pure virtual]

Specifies whether or not the NamedCache is active.

Returns:
true if the NamedCache is active; false otherwise

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.

virtual void release (  )  [pure virtual]

Release local resources associated with this instance of NamedCache.

Releasing a cache makes it no longer usable, but does not affect the cache itself. In other words, all other references to the cache will still be valid, and the cache data is not affected by releasing the reference. Any attempt to use this reference afterword will result in an exception.

See also:
CacheService::releaseCache

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.

virtual void destroy (  )  [pure virtual]

Release and destroy this instance of NamedCache.

Warning: This method is used to completely destroy the specified cache across the cluster. All references in the entire cluster to this cache will be invalidated, the cached data will be cleared, and all resources will be released.

CacheService::destroyCache

Implemented in ContinuousQueryCache, and ConverterCollections::ConverterNamedCache.
