Class NonSerializableFactory

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--org.jboss.naming.NonSerializableFactory
All Implemented Interfaces:
javax.naming.spi.ObjectFactory

public class NonSerializableFactory
extends java.lang.Object
implements javax.naming.spi.ObjectFactory

A utility class that allows one to bind a non-serializable object into a local JNDI context. The binding will only be valid for the lifetime of the VM in which the JNDI InitialContext lives. An example usage code snippet is: // The non-Serializable object to bind Object nonserializable = ...; // An arbitrary key to use in the StringRefAddr. The best key is the jndi // name that the object will be bound under. String key = ...; // This places nonserializable into the NonSerializableFactory hashmap under key NonSerializableFactory.rebind(key, nonserializable); Context ctx = new InitialContext(); // Bind a reference to nonserializable using NonSerializableFactory as the ObjectFactory String className = nonserializable.getClass().getName(); String factory = NonSerializableFactory.class.getName(); StringRefAddr addr = new StringRefAddr("nns", key); Reference memoryRef = new Reference(className, addr, factory, null); ctx.rebind(key, memoryRef); Or you can use the rebind(Context, String, Object) convience method to simplify the number of steps to: Context ctx = new InitialContext(); // The non-Serializable object to bind Object nonserializable = ...; // The jndiName that the object will be bound into ctx with String jndiName = ...; // This places nonserializable into the NonSerializableFactory hashmap under key NonSerializableFactory.rebind(ctx, jndiName, nonserializable); To unbind the object, use the following code snippet: new InitialContext().unbind(key); NonSerializableFactory.unbind(key);

Method Detail

bind

public static void bind(java.lang.String key,
                        java.lang.Object target)
                 throws javax.naming.NameAlreadyBoundException
Place an object into the NonSerializableFactory namespace for subsequent access by getObject. There cannot be an already existing binding for key.
Parameters:
key, - the name to bind target under. This should typically be the name that will be used to bind target in the JNDI namespace, but it does not have to be.
target, - the non-Serializable object to bind.
Throws:
NameAlreadyBoundException, - thrown if key already exists in the NonSerializableFactory map

rebind

public static void rebind(java.lang.String key,
                          java.lang.Object target)
Place or replace an object in the NonSerializableFactory namespce for subsequent access by getObject. Any existing binding for key will be replaced by target.
Parameters:
key, - the name to bind target under. This should typically be the name that will be used to bind target in the JNDI namespace, but it does not have to be.
target, - the non-Serializable object to bind.

unbind

public static void unbind(java.lang.String key)
                   throws javax.naming.NameNotFoundException
Remove a binding from the NonSerializableFactory map.
Parameters:
key, - the key into the NonSerializableFactory map to remove.
Throws:
NameNotFoundException, - thrown if key does not exist in the NonSerializableFactory map

unbind

public static void unbind(javax.naming.Name name)
                   throws javax.naming.NameNotFoundException
Remove a binding from the NonSerializableFactory map.
Parameters:
name, - the name for the key into NonSerializableFactory map to remove. The key is obtained as name.toString().
Throws:
NameNotFoundException, - thrown if key does not exist in the NonSerializableFactory map

lookup

public static java.lang.Object lookup(java.lang.String key)
Lookup a value from the NonSerializableFactory map.
Returns:
the object bound to key is one exists, null otherwise.

lookup

public static java.lang.Object lookup(javax.naming.Name name)
Lookup a value from the NonSerializableFactory map.
Returns:
the object bound to key is one exists, null otherwise.

rebind

public static void rebind(javax.naming.Context ctx,
                          java.lang.String key,
                          java.lang.Object target)
                   throws javax.naming.NamingException
A convience method that simplifies the process of rebinding a non-zerializable object into a JNDI context.
Parameters:
ctx, - the JNDI context to rebind to.
key, - the key to use in both the NonSerializableFactory map and JNDI. It must be a valid name for use in ctx.bind().
target, - the non-Serializable object to bind.

                   throws javax.naming.NamingException
A convience method that simplifies the process of rebinding a non-zerializable object into a JNDI context. This version binds the target object into the default IntitialContext using name path.
Parameters:
name, - the name to use as JNDI path name. The key into the NonSerializableFactory map is obtained from the toString() value of name. The name parameter cannot be a 0 length name. Any subcontexts between the root and the name must exist.
target, - the non-Serializable object to bind.
Throws:
NamingException, - thrown on failure to rebind key into ctx.

A convience method that simplifies the process of rebinding a non-zerializable object into a JNDI context. This version binds the target object into the default IntitialContext using name path.
Parameters:
name, - the name to use as JNDI path name. The key into the NonSerializableFactory map is obtained from the toString() value of name. The name parameter cannot be a 0 length name.
target, - the non-Serializable object to bind.
createSubcontexts, - a flag indicating if subcontexts of name should be created if they do not already exist.
