9.17. ODPI-C SODA Database Functions

SODA database handles are used to represent connections to the SODA database. They are created by calling the function dpiConn_getSodaDb(). They are destroyed when the last reference is released by calling dpiSodaDb_release().

See this tracking issue for known issues with SODA.

int dpiSodaDb_addRef(dpiSodaDb *db)

Adds a reference to the SODA database. This is intended for situations where a reference to the SODA database needs to be maintained independently of the reference returned when the database was created.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

The database to which a reference is to be added. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

int dpiSodaDb_createCollection(dpiSodaDb *db, const char *name, uint32_t nameLength, const char *metadata, uint32_t metadataLength, uint32_t flags, dpiSodaColl **coll)

Creates a new SODA collection if a collection by that name does not exist. If a collection by that name already exists, the collection is opened if the metadata of the collection is equivalent to the supplied metadata; otherwise, an error is returned.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

NOTE: the creation of the collection is performed using an autonomous transaction. Any current transaction is left unchanged.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

A reference to the database in which the SODA collection is to be created. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

name

IN

The name of the collection which is to be created or opened. NOTE: the name is case sensitive.

nameLength

IN

The length of the name parameter, in bytes.

metadata

IN

The metadata to use when creating the collection, or NULL if default metadata should be used instead.

metadataLength

IN

The length of the metadata parameter, in bytes, or 0 if metadata is NULL.

flags

IN

One or more of the values from the enumeration dpiSodaFlags, OR’ed together.

coll

OUT

A pointer to a reference to the newly created or opened SODA collection if the function completes successfully. The function dpiSodaColl_release() should be called when the collection is no longer required.

int dpiSodaDb_createDocument(dpiSodaDb *db, const char *key, uint32_t keyLength, const char *content, uint32_t contentLength, const char *mediaType, uint32_t mediaTypeLength, uint32_t flags, dpiSodaDoc **doc)

Creates a SODA document that can later be inserted into a collection or used to replace an existing document in a collection.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

A reference to the database in which the SODA document is going to be inserted or replaced. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

key

IN

The key used to identify this document, or NULL if a key should be generated instead (and the collection metadata supports key generation).

keyLength

IN

The length of the key used to identify the document, in bytes, or 0 if the key is NULL.

content

IN

The content of the document to create, as a byte string. The type of content is controlled by the mediaType parameter. If the mediaType parameter is set to NULL or “application/json”, the content must be a valid UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoded JSON string.

contentLength

IN

The length of the document content, in bytes.

mediaType

IN

The type of content that is found in the content parameter. This value may also be NULL, in which case the default value of “application/json” is assumed.

mediaTypeLength

IN

The length of the mediaType parameter, in bytes, or 0 if the mediaType parameter is NULL.

flags

IN

One or more of the values from the enumeration dpiSodaFlags, OR’ed together.

doc

OUT

A pointer to a document reference that will be populated upon successful completion of this function. Call the function dpiSodaDoc_release() when it is no longer needed.

int dpiSodaDb_getCollections(dpiSodaDb *db, const char *startName, uint32_t startNameLength, uint32_t flags, dpiSodaCollCursor **cursor)

Return a cursor to iterate over the SODA collections available in the database.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

A reference to the database to use for iterating over available SODA collections. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

startName

IN

A name from which to start iterating over collections available in the database or NULL if all collections should be returned.

startNameLength

IN

The length of the startName parameter, in bytes, or 0 if startName is NULL.

flags

IN

One or more of the values from the enumeration dpiSodaFlags, OR’ed together.

cursor

OUT

A pointer to a reference to a newly allocated cursor if the function completes successfully. The function dpiSodaCollCursor_getNext() should be used to get the next collection from the database and dpiSodaCollCursor_release() should be used when the cursor is no longer required.

int dpiSodaDb_getCollectionNames(dpiSodaDb *db, const char *startName, uint32_t startNameLength, uint32_t limit, uint32_t flags, dpiStringList *names)

Return an array of names of SODA collections available in the database.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

A reference to the database to use for getting the names of available SODA collections. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

startName

IN

The value from which to start getting the names of collections available in the database or NULL if the names of all collections should be returned.

startNameLength

IN

The length of the startName parameter, in bytes, or 0 if startName is NULL.

limit

IN

The maximum number of collection names to return, or 0 if all names matching the criteria should be returned.

flags

IN

One or more of the values from the enumeration dpiSodaFlags, OR’ed together.

names

IN

A pointer to structure of type dpiStringList which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. A call to the function dpiContext_freeStringList() should be made once the names of the collections returned in this structure are no longer needed.

int dpiSodaDb_openCollection(dpiSodaDb *db, const char *name, uint32_t nameLength, uint32_t flags, dpiSodaColl **coll)

Opens an existing SODA collection.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

A reference to the database in which the SODA collection is to be opened. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.

name

IN

The name of the collection which is to be opened. NOTE: the name is case sensitive.

nameLength

IN

The length of the name parameter, in bytes.

flags

IN

One or more of the values from the enumeration dpiSodaFlags, OR’ed together.

coll

OUT

A pointer to a reference to the newly opened SODA collection if the function completes successfully. The function dpiSodaColl_release() should be called when the collection is no longer required. If the collection with the specified name does not exist, the returned reference is NULL and no error is returned.

int dpiSodaDb_release(dpiSodaDb *db)

Releases a reference to the database. A count of the references to the database is maintained and when this count reaches zero, the memory associated with the database is freed.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

Parameter

Mode

Description

db

IN

The database from which a reference is to be released. If the reference is NULL or invalid, an error is returned.
