Interface ExecPlugin

public interface ExecPlugin

An implementation of this interface takes the responsibility of handling node execute requests requests in a subtree of the DMT.

In an OSGi environment such implementations should be registered at the OSGi service registry specifying the list of root node URIs in a String array in the execRootURIs registration parameter.

Method Summary
 void execute(DmtSession session, java.lang.String[] nodePath, java.lang.String correlator, java.lang.String data)
          Execute the given node with the given data.

Method Detail


public void execute(DmtSession session,
                    java.lang.String[] nodePath,
                    java.lang.String correlator,
                    java.lang.String data)
             throws DmtException
Execute the given node with the given data. This operation corresponds to the EXEC command in OMA DM.

The semantics of an execute operation and the data parameter it takes depends on the definition of the managed object on which the command is issued. Session information is given as it is needed for sending alerts back from the plugin. If a correlation ID is specified, it should be used as the correlator parameter for alerts sent in response to this execute operation.

The nodePath parameter contains an array of path segments identifying the node to be executed in the subtree of this plugin. This is an absolute path, so the first segment is always ".". Special characters appear escaped in the segments.

session - a reference to the session in which the operation was issued, must not be null
nodePath - the absolute path of the node to be executed, must not be null
correlator - an identifier to associate this operation with any alerts sent in response to it, can be null
data - the parameter of the execute operation, can be null
DmtException - with the following possible error codes:
  • NODE_NOT_FOUND if the node does not exist and the plugin does not allow executing unexisting nodes
  • METADATA_MISMATCH if the command failed because of meta-data restrictions
  • DATA_STORE_FAILURE if an error occurred while accessing the data store
  • COMMAND_FAILED if some unspecified error is encountered while attempting to complete the command
