Interface ChannelMessage

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Cloneable, Serializable
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    ChannelData

    public interface ChannelMessage
    extends Serializable, Cloneable
    Message that is passed through the interceptor stack after the data serialized in the Channel object and then passed down to the interceptor and eventually down to the ChannelSender component

      All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods 
      Modifier and Type Method Description
      Object clone()
      Shallow clone, what gets cloned depends on the implementation
      Object deepclone()
      Deep clone, all fields MUST get cloned
      Member getAddress()
      Get the address that this message originated from.
      XByteBuffer getMessage()
      returns the byte buffer that contains the actual message payload
      int getOptions()
      The message options is a 32 bit flag set that triggers interceptors and message behavior.
      long getTimestamp()
      Timestamp of when the message was created.
      byte[] getUniqueId()
      Each message must have a globally unique Id.
      void setAddress​(Member member)
      Sets the source or reply-to address of this message
      void setMessage​(XByteBuffer buf)
      The byte buffer that contains the actual message payload
      void setOptions​(int options)
      sets the option bits for this message
      void setTimestamp​(long timestamp)
      Sets the timestamp of this message
    • Method Detail

      • getAddress

        Member getAddress()
        Get the address that this message originated from. Almost always Channel.getLocalMember(boolean)
        This would be set to a different address if the message was being relayed from a host other than the one that originally sent it.
        Returns:
        the source or reply-to address of this message
      • setAddress

        void setAddress​(Member member)
        Sets the source or reply-to address of this message
        Parameters:
        member - Member
      • getTimestamp

        long getTimestamp()
        Timestamp of when the message was created.
        Returns:
        long timestamp in milliseconds
      • setTimestamp

        void setTimestamp​(long timestamp)
        Sets the timestamp of this message
        Parameters:
        timestamp - The timestamp
      • getUniqueId

        byte[] getUniqueId()
        Each message must have a globally unique Id. interceptors heavily depend on this id for message processing
        Returns:
        byte
      • setMessage

        void setMessage​(XByteBuffer buf)
        The byte buffer that contains the actual message payload
        Parameters:
        buf - XByteBuffer
      • getMessage

        XByteBuffer getMessage()
        returns the byte buffer that contains the actual message payload
        Returns:
        XByteBuffer
      • setOptions

        void setOptions​(int options)
        sets the option bits for this message
        Parameters:
        options - int

        getOptions()
      • clone

        Object clone()
        Shallow clone, what gets cloned depends on the implementation
        Returns:
        ChannelMessage
      • deepclone

        Object deepclone()
        Deep clone, all fields MUST get cloned
        Returns:
        ChannelMessage
