javax.sql.rowset.serial
Class SerialArray

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.sql.rowset.serial.SerialArray
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Cloneable, Array

public class SerialArray
extends Object
implements Array, Serializable, Cloneable

A serialized version of an Array object, which is the mapping in the Java programming language of an SQL ARRAY value.

The SerialArray class provides a constructor for creating a SerialArray instance from an Array object, methods for getting the base type and the SQL name for the base type, and methods for copying all or part of a SerialArray object.

Note: In order for this class to function correctly, a connection to the data source must be available in order for the SQL Array object to be materialized (have all of its elements brought to the client server) if necessary. At this time, logical pointers to the data in the data source, such as locators, are not currently supported.

Constructor Detail

SerialArray

public SerialArray(Array array,
                   Map<String,Class<?>> map)
            throws SerialException,
                   SQLException
Constructs a new SerialArray object from the given Array object, using the given type map for the custom mapping of each element when the elements are SQL UDTs.

This method does custom mapping if the array elements are a UDT and the given type map has an entry for that UDT. Custom mapping is recursive, meaning that if, for instance, an element of an SQL structured type is an SQL structured type that itself has an element that is an SQL structured type, each structured type that has a custom mapping will be mapped according to the given type map.

The new SerialArray object contains the same elements as the Array object from which it is built, except when the base type is the SQL type STRUCT, ARRAY, BLOB, CLOB, DATALINK or JAVA_OBJECT. In this case, each element in the new SerialArray object is the appropriate serialized form, that is, a SerialStruct, SerialArray, SerialBlob, SerialClob, SerialDatalink, or SerialJavaObject object.

Note: (1) The Array object from which a SerialArray object is created must have materialized the SQL ARRAY value's data on the client before it is passed to the constructor. Otherwise, the new SerialArray object will contain no data.

Note: (2) If the Array contains java.sql.Types.JAVA_OBJECT types, the SerialJavaObject constructor is called where checks are made to ensure this object is serializable.

Note: (3) The Array object supplied to this constructor cannot return null for any Array.getArray() methods. SerialArray cannot serialize null array values.

Parameters:
array - the Array object to be serialized
map - a java.util.Map object in which each entry consists of 1) a String object giving the fully qualified name of a UDT (an SQL structured type or distinct type) and 2) the Class object for the SQLData implementation that defines how the UDT is to be mapped. The map parameter does not have any effect for Blob, Clob, DATALINK, or JAVA_OBJECT types.
Throws:
SerialException - if an error occurs serializing the Array object
SQLException - if a database access error occurs or if the array or the map values are null

SerialArray

public SerialArray(Array array)
            throws SerialException,
                   SQLException
Constructs a new SerialArray object from the given Array object.

This constructor does not do custom mapping. If the base type of the array is an SQL structured type and custom mapping is desired, the constructor SerialArray(Array array, Map map) should be used.

The new SerialArray object contains the same elements as the Array object from which it is built, except when the base type is the SQL type BLOB, CLOB, DATALINK or JAVA_OBJECT. In this case, each element in the new SerialArray object is the appropriate serialized form, that is, a SerialBlob, SerialClob, SerialDatalink, or SerialJavaObject object.

Note: (1) The Array object from which a SerialArray object is created must have materialized the SQL ARRAY value's data on the client before it is passed to the constructor. Otherwise, the new SerialArray object will contain no data.

Note: (2) The Array object supplied to this constructor cannot return null for any Array.getArray() methods. SerialArray cannot serialize null array values.

Parameters:
array - the Array object to be serialized
Throws:
SerialException - if an error occurs serializing the Array object
SQLException - if a database access error occurs or the array parameter is null.
Method Detail

free

public void free()
          throws SQLException
This method frees the Array object and releases the resources that it holds. The object is invalid once the free method is called.

After free has been called, any attempt to invoke a method other than free will result in a SQLException being thrown. If free is called multiple times, the subsequent calls to free are treated as a no-op.

Specified by:
free in interface Array
Throws:
SQLException - if an error occurs releasing the Array's resources
SQLFeatureNotSupportedException - if the JDBC driver does not support this method
Since:
1.6
