Class MimeHeaders

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.apache.tomcat.util.http.MimeHeaders

public class MimeHeaders
extends java.lang.Object

Memory-efficient repository for Mime Headers. When the object is recycled, it will keep the allocated headers[] and all the MimeHeaderField - no GC is generated. For input headers it is possible to use the MessageByte for Fileds - so no GC will be generated. The only garbage is generated when using the String for header names/values - this can't be avoided when the servlet calls header methods, but is easy to avoid inside tomcat. The goal is to use _only_ MessageByte-based Fields, and reduce to 0 the memory overhead of tomcat. TODO: XXX one-buffer parsing - for http ( other protocols don't need that ) XXX remove unused methods XXX External enumerations, with 0 GC. XXX use HeaderName ID

MimeHeaders

public MimeHeaders()
Creates a new MimeHeaders object using a default buffer size.

Method Detail

setLimit

public void setLimit(int limit)
Set limit on the number of header fields.


recycle

public void recycle()

clear

public void clear()
Clears all header fields.


toString

public java.lang.String toString()
EXPENSIVE!!! only for debugging.

Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object

size

public int size()
Returns the current number of header fields.


getName

public MessageBytes getName(int n)
Returns the Nth header name, or null if there is no such header. This may be used to iterate through all header fields.


getValue

public MessageBytes getValue(int n)
Returns the Nth header value, or null if there is no such header. This may be used to iterate through all header fields.


findHeader

public int findHeader(java.lang.String name,
                      int starting)
Find the index of a header with the given name.


names

public java.util.Enumeration names()
Returns an enumeration of strings representing the header field names. Field names may appear multiple times in this enumeration, indicating that multiple fields with that name exist in this header.


values

public java.util.Enumeration values(java.lang.String name)

addValue

public MessageBytes addValue(java.lang.String name)
Create a new named header , return the MessageBytes container for the new value


addValue

public MessageBytes addValue(byte[] b,
                             int startN,
                             int len)
Create a new named header using un-translated byte[]. The conversion to chars can be delayed until encoding is known.


addValue

public MessageBytes addValue(char[] c,
                             int startN,
                             int len)
Create a new named header using translated char[].


setValue

public MessageBytes setValue(java.lang.String name)
Allow "set" operations - return a MessageBytes container for the header value ( existing header or new if this .


getValue

public MessageBytes getValue(java.lang.String name)
Finds and returns a header field with the given name. If no such field exists, null is returned. If more than one such field is in the header, an arbitrary one is returned.


getUniqueValue

public MessageBytes getUniqueValue(java.lang.String name)
Finds and returns a unique header field with the given name. If no such field exists, null is returned. If the specified header field is not unique then an IllegalArgumentException is thrown.


getHeader

public java.lang.String getHeader(java.lang.String name)

removeHeader

public void removeHeader(java.lang.String name)
Removes a header field with the specified name. Does nothing if such a field could not be found.

Parameters:
name - the name of the header field to be removed
