NAME

       confdb_initialize - Create a new connection to the ConfDb service

SYNOPSIS

       #include <corosync/confdb.h>

       int confdb_initialize(confdb_handle_t *handle, confdb_callbacks_t *callbacks);

DESCRIPTION

       The  confdb_initialize  function  is  used to initialize a connection to the configuration
       database API.

       Each application may have several connections to the CONFDB API.  Each   application  uses
       the handle argument to uniquely identify the connection.  The handle argument is then used
       in other function calls to identify the connection to be used for communication  with  the
       CONFDB service.

       Every  time  the  configuration database is updated, the callback is called.  The callback
       function is described by the following type definitions:

              typedef void (*confdb_change_notify_fn_t) (
                  confdb_handle_t handle,
                  unsigned int parent_object_handle,
                  unsigned int object_handle,
                  void *object_name,
                  int  object_name_len,
                  void *key_name,
                  int key_name_len,
                  void *key_value,
                  int key_value_len);

       The callbacks argument is of the type:

              typedef struct {
              confdb_change_notify_fn_t confdb_change_notify_fn;
              } confdb_callbacks_t;

       When a configuration change occurs, the callback  is  called  from  the  confdb_dispatch()
       function.

RETURN VALUE

       This call returns the CONFDB_OK value if successful, otherwise an error is returned.

BUGS

       Callbacks are not support at the moment.

ERRORS

       The errors are undocumented.
