Interface Param<P>

  • Type Parameters:
    P - type of parameter
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    Param.ExecutionMode, Param.LockingMode, Param.PersistenceMode, Param.ReplicationMode, Param.StatisticsMode

    public interface Param<P>
    An easily extensible parameter that allows functional map operations to be tweaked. Examples would include local-only parameter, skip-cache-store parameter and others.

    What makes Param different from MetaParam is that Param values are never stored in the functional map. They merely act as ways to tweak how operations are executed.

    Since Param instances control how the internals work, only Param implementations by Infinispan will be supported.

    This interface is equivalent to Infinispan's Flag, but it's more powerful because it allows to pass a flag along with a value. Infinispan's Flag are enum based which means no values can be passed along with value.

    Since each param is an independent entity, it's easy to create public versus private parameter distinction. When parameters are stored in enums, it's more difficult to make such distinction.

    • Nested Class Summary

      Nested Classes 
      Modifier and Type Interface Description
      static class  Param.ExecutionMode
      Defines where is the command executed.
      static class  Param.LockingMode
      Normally the cache has to acquire locks during any write operation to guarantee its correctness.
      static class  Param.PersistenceMode
      When a persistence store is attached to a cache, by default all write operations, regardless of whether they are inserts, updates or removes, are persisted to the store.
      static class  Param.ReplicationMode  
      static class  Param.StatisticsMode
      Defines how statistics are gathered for this command.
    • Method Detail

      • id

        int id()
        A parameter's identifier. Each parameter must have a different id.

        A numeric id makes it flexible enough to be stored in collections that take up low resources, such as arrays.

      • get

        P get()
        Parameter's value.
