NAME

       CosNotifyFilter_MappingFilter      -      This      module      implements     the     OMG
       CosNotifyFilter::MappingFilter interface.

DESCRIPTION

       The main purpose of this module is to match  events  against  associated  constraints  and
       return  the  value  for the first constraint that returns true for the given event. If all
       constraints return false the default value will be returned.

       To get access to the record definitions for the structures use:
       -include_lib("cosNotification/include/*.hrl").

EXPORTS

       _get_constraint_grammar(MappingFilter) -> Grammar

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 Grammar = string()

              This operation returns which type of Grammar  the  MappingFilter  uses.  Currently,
              only "EXTENDED_TCL" is supported.

       _get_value_type(MappingFilter) -> CORBA::TypeCode

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref

              This  readonly  attribute  maintains  the  CORBA::TypeCode  of  the  default  value
              associated with the target object.

       _get_default_value(MappingFilter) -> #any

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref

              This readonly attribute maintains the #any{}  default  value  associated  with  the
              target object.

       add_mapping_constraints(MappingFilter, MappingConstraintPairSeq) -> Reply

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 MappingConstraintPairSeq = [MappingConstraintPair]
                 MappingConstraintPair                                                          =
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_MappingConstraintPair'{constraint_expression, result_to_set}
                 constraint_expression      =       #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintExp'{event_types,
                 constraint_expr}
                 event_types = #'CosNotification_EventTypeSeq'{}
                 constraint_expr = string()
                 result_to_set = #any
                 Reply         =         MappingConstraintInfoSeq         |         {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_InvalidConstraint'{constr}}          |           {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_InvalidValue'{constr, value}}
                 constr = ConstraintExp
                 ConstraintExp = #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintExp'{event_types, constraint_expr}
                 event_types = #'CosNotification_EventTypeSeq'{}
                 constraint_expr = string()
                 MappingConstraintInfoSeq = [MappingConstraintInfo]
                 MappingConstraintInfo                                                          =
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_MappingConstraintInfo'{constraint_expression,   constraint_id,
                 value}
                 constraint_expression = ConstraintExp
                 constraint_id = long()
                 value = #any

              This  operation  add  new  mapping  constraints,  which will be used when trying to
              override Quality of Service settings defined in the given event.  If  a  constraint
              return true the associated value will be returned, otherwise the default value.

       modify_constraints(MappingFilter, ConstraintIDSeq, MappingConstraintInfoSeq) -> Reply

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 ConstraintIDSeq = [ConstraintID]
                 ConstraintID = long()
                 MappingConstraintInfoSeq = [MappingConstraintInfo]
                 MappingConstraintInfo                                                          =
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_MappingConstraintInfo'{constraint_expression,   constraint_id,
                 value}
                 constraint_expression = ConstraintExp
                 constraint_id = long()
                 value = #any
                 ConstraintInfoSeq = [ConstraintInfo]
                 ConstraintInfo     =    #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintInfo'{constraint_expression,
                 constraint_id}
                 constraint_expression = ConstraintExp
                 constraint_id = long()
                 Reply  =  ok  |  {'EXCEPTION',  #'CosNotifyFilter_InvalidConstraint'{constr}}  |
                 {'EXCEPTION',    #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintNotFound'{id}}    |   {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_InvalidValue'{constr, value}}
                 constr = ConstraintExp
                 id = long()
                 value = #any
                 ConstraintExp = #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintExp'{event_types, constraint_expr}
                 event_types = #'CosNotification_EventTypeSeq'{}
                 constraint_expr = string()

              The ConstraintIDSeq supplied should relate to  constraints  the  caller  wishes  to
              remove. If any of the supplied Id's are not found an exception will be raised. This
              operation also accepts a sequence of MappingConstraintInfo which will be added.  If
              the target object cannot modify the constraints as requested an exception is raised
              describing which constraint, and why, could not be updated.

       get_mapping_constraints(MappingFilter, ConstraintIDSeq) -> Reply

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 ConstraintIDSeq = [ConstraintID]
                 ConstraintID = long()
                 Reply         =         MappingConstraintInfoSeq         |         {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintNotFound'{id}}
                 MappingConstraintInfoSeq = [MappingConstraintInfo]
                 MappingConstraintInfo                                                          =
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_MappingConstraintInfo'{constraint_expression,   constraint_id,
                 value}
                 constraint_expression = ConstraintExp
                 ConstraintExp = #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintExp'{event_types, constraint_expr}
                 event_types = #'CosNotification_EventTypeSeq'{}
                 constraint_expr = string()
                 constraint_id = id = long()
                 value = #any

              When  adding  a  new constraint a unique Id is returned, which is accepted as input
              for this operation. The associated constraint is returned, but if no such Id exists
              an exception is raised.

       get_all_mapping_constraints(MappingFilter) -> MappingConstraintInfoSeq

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 MappingConstraintInfoSeq = [MappingConstraintInfo]
                 MappingConstraintInfo                                                          =
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_MappingConstraintInfo'{constraint_expression,   constraint_id,
                 value}
                 constraint_expression = ConstraintExp
                 ConstraintExp = #'CosNotifyFilter_ConstraintExp'{event_types, constraint_expr}
                 event_types = #'CosNotification_EventTypeSeq'{}
                 constraint_expr = string()
                 constraint_id = long()
                 value = #any

              This  operation  returns  a  sequence of all unique Id's associated with the target
              object. If no constraint have been added the sequence will be empty.

       remove_all_mapping_constraints(MappingFilter) -> ok

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref

              This operation removes all constraints associated with the target object.

       destroy(MappingFilter) -> ok

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref

              This operation terminates the target object. Remember to remove  this  Filter  from
              the objects it have been associated with.

       match(MappingFilter, Event) -> Reply

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 Event = #any
                 Reply         =         {boolean(),         #any}         |        {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_UnsupportedFilterableData'{}}

              This operation evaluates Any events with the Filter's constraints, and returns  the
              value  to  use. The value is the default value if all constraints returns false and
              the value associated with the first constraint returning true.

       match_structured(MappingFilter, Event) -> Reply

              Types:

                 MappingFilter = #objref
                 Event = #'CosNotification_StructuredEvent'{}
                 Reply        =         {boolean(),         #any}         |         {'EXCEPTION',
                 #'CosNotifyFilter_UnsupportedFilterableData'{}}

              Similar to match/2 but accepts a structured event as input.
