    public interface Pipeline
    extends Contained

    Interface describing a collection of Valves that should be executed in sequence when the invoke() method is invoked. It is required that a Valve somewhere in the pipeline (usually the last one) must process the request and create the corresponding response, rather than trying to pass the request on.

    There is generally a single Pipeline instance associated with each Container. The container's normal request processing functionality is generally encapsulated in a container-specific Valve, which should always be executed at the end of a pipeline. To facilitate this, the setBasic() method is provided to set the Valve instance that will always be executed last. Other Valves will be executed in the order that they were added, before the basic Valve is executed.

    • Method Detail

      • getBasic

        Valve getBasic()
        Returns:
        the Valve instance that has been distinguished as the basic Valve for this Pipeline (if any).
      • setBasic

        void setBasic​(Valve valve)

        Set the Valve instance that has been distinguished as the basic Valve for this Pipeline (if any). Prior to setting the basic Valve, the Valve's setContainer() will be called, if it implements Contained, with the owning Container as an argument. The method may throw an IllegalArgumentException if this Valve chooses not to be associated with this Container, or IllegalStateException if it is already associated with a different Container.

        Parameters:
        valve - Valve to be distinguished as the basic Valve
      • addValve

        void addValve​(Valve valve)

        Add a new Valve to the end of the pipeline associated with this Container. Prior to adding the Valve, the Valve's setContainer() method will be called, if it implements Contained, with the owning Container as an argument. The method may throw an IllegalArgumentException if this Valve chooses not to be associated with this Container, or IllegalStateException if it is already associated with a different Container.

        Implementation note: Implementations are expected to trigger the Container.ADD_VALVE_EVENT for the associated container if this call is successful.

        Parameters:
        valve - Valve to be added
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this Container refused to accept the specified Valve
        IllegalArgumentException - if the specified Valve refuses to be associated with this Container
        IllegalStateException - if the specified Valve is already associated with a different Container
      • getValves

        Valve[] getValves()
        Returns:
        the set of Valves in the pipeline associated with this Container, including the basic Valve (if any). If there are no such Valves, a zero-length array is returned.
      • removeValve

        void removeValve​(Valve valve)
        Remove the specified Valve from the pipeline associated with this Container, if it is found; otherwise, do nothing. If the Valve is found and removed, the Valve's setContainer(null) method will be called if it implements Contained.

        Implementation note: Implementations are expected to trigger the Container.REMOVE_VALVE_EVENT for the associated container if this call is successful.

        Parameters:
        valve - Valve to be removed
      • getFirst

        Valve getFirst()
        Returns:
        the Valve instance that has been distinguished as the basic Valve for this Pipeline (if any).
      • isAsyncSupported

        boolean isAsyncSupported()
        Returns true if all the valves in this pipeline support async, false otherwise
        Returns:
        true if all the valves in this pipeline support async, false otherwise
      • findNonAsyncValves

        void findNonAsyncValves​(Set<String> result)
        Identifies the Valves, if any, in this Pipeline that do not support async.
        Parameters:
        result - The Set to which the fully qualified class names of each Valve in this Pipeline that does not support async will be added
