Description

This base class makes it easier to write TpSvcConnection implementations by managing connection status, channel factories and handle tracking. A subclass should often not need to implement any of the Connection methods itself.

However, methods may be reimplemented if needed: for instance, Gabble overrides RequestHandles so it can validate MUC rooms, which must be done asynchronously.

Details

TP_INTERNAL_CONNECTION_STATUS_NEW

#   define TP_INTERNAL_CONNECTION_STATUS_NEW ((TpConnectionStatus)(-1))

A special value for TpConnectionStatus, used within GLib connection managers to indicate that the connection is disconnected because connection has never been attempted (as distinct from disconnected after connection has started, either by user request or an error).

Must never be visible on the D-Bus - TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED is sent instead.


TpBaseConnection

typedef struct _TpBaseConnection TpBaseConnection;

Data structure representing a generic TpSvcConnection implementation.

Since 0.19.1, accessing the fields of this structure is deprecated. Use tp_base_connection_get_bus_name(), tp_base_connection_get_object_path(), tp_base_connection_get_status(), tp_base_connection_get_self_handle() instead.

    TpBaseConnectionStartConnectingImpl start_connecting;

    TpBaseConnectionCreateChannelManagersImpl create_channel_managers;

    TpBaseConnectionGetInterfacesImpl get_interfaces_always_present;
};

The class of a TpBaseConnection. Many members are virtual methods etc. to be filled in in the subclass' class_init function.

GObjectClass parent_class;

The superclass' structure

TpBaseConnectionCreateHandleReposImpl create_handle_repos;

Fill in suitable handle repositories in the given array for all those handle types this Connection supports. Must be set by subclasses to a non-NULL value; the function must create at least a CONTACT handle repository (failing to do so will cause a crash).

TpBaseConnectionCreateChannelFactoriesImpl create_channel_factories;

Create an array of channel factories for this Connection. At least one of this or create_channel_managers must be set by subclasses to a non-NULL value; in new code, setting this to NULL and using channel managers exclusively is recommended.

TpBaseConnectionGetUniqueConnectionNameImpl get_unique_connection_name;

Construct a unique name for this connection (for example using the protocol's format for usernames). If NULL (the default), a unique name will be generated. Subclasses should usually override this to get more obvious names, to aid debugging and prevent multiple connections to the same account.

TpBaseConnectionProc connecting;

If set by subclasses, will be called just after the state changes to CONNECTING. May be NULL if nothing special needs to happen.

TpBaseConnectionProc connected;

If set by subclasses, will be called just after the state changes to CONNECTED. May be NULL if nothing special needs to happen.

TpBaseConnectionProc disconnected;

If set by subclasses, will be called just after the state changes to DISCONNECTED. May be NULL if nothing special needs to happen.

TpBaseConnectionProc shut_down;

Called after disconnected() is called, to clean up the connection. Must start the shutdown process for the underlying network connection, and arrange for tp_base_connection_finish_shutdown() to be called after the underlying connection has been closed. May not be left as NULL.

TpBaseConnectionStartConnectingImpl start_connecting;

Asynchronously start connecting - called to implement the Connect D-Bus method. See TpBaseConnectionStartConnectingImpl for details. May not be left as NULL.

TpBaseConnectionCreateChannelManagersImpl create_channel_managers;

Create an array of channel managers for this Connection. At least one of this or create_channel_factories must be set by subclasses to a non-NULL value. Since: 0.7.15

TpBaseConnectionGetInterfacesImpl get_interfaces_always_present;

Returns a GPtrArray of extra D-Bus interfaces which are always implemented by instances of this class, which may be filled in by subclasses. The default is to list no additional interfaces. Individual instances may detect which additional interfaces they support and signal them before going to state CONNECTED by calling tp_base_connection_add_interfaces().

TpBaseConnectionProc ()

void                (*TpBaseConnectionProc)             (TpBaseConnection *self);

Signature of a virtual method on TpBaseConnection that takes no additional parameters and returns nothing.

self :

The connection object

TpBaseConnectionStartConnectingImpl ()

gboolean            (*TpBaseConnectionStartConnectingImpl)
                                                        (TpBaseConnection *self,
                                                         GError **error);

Signature of an implementation of the start_connecting method of TpBaseConnection.

On entry, the implementation may assume that it is in state NEW.

If TRUE is returned, the Connect D-Bus method succeeds; the implementation must either have already set the status to CONNECTED by calling tp_base_connection_change_status(), or have arranged for a status change to either state DISCONNECTED or CONNECTED to be signalled by calling tp_base_connection_change_status() at some later time. If the status is still NEW after returning TRUE, TpBaseConnection will automatically change it to CONNECTING for reason REQUESTED.

If FALSE is returned, the error will be raised from Connect as an exception. If the status is not DISCONNECTED after FALSE is returned, TpBaseConnection will automatically change it to DISCONNECTED with a reason appropriate to the error; NetworkError results in NETWORK_ERROR, PermissionDenied results in AUTHENTICATION_FAILED, and all other errors currently result in NONE_SPECIFIED.

All except the simplest connection managers are expected to implement this asynchronously, returning TRUE in most cases and changing the status to CONNECTED or DISCONNECTED later.

self :

The connection object

error :

Set to the error if FALSE is returned

Returns :

FALSE if failure has already occurred, else TRUE.

tp_base_connection_get_bus_name ()

const gchar *       tp_base_connection_get_bus_name     (TpBaseConnection *self);

Return the bus name starting with TP_CONN_BUS_NAME_BASE that represents this connection on D-Bus.

The returned string belongs to the TpBaseConnection and must be copied by the caller if it will be kept.

If this connection has never been present on D-Bus (tp_base_connection_register() has never been called), return NULL instead.

self :

the connection

Returns :

the bus name of this connection, or NULL. [allow-none][transfer none]

Since 0.19.1


tp_base_connection_get_object_path ()

const gchar *       tp_base_connection_get_object_path  (TpBaseConnection *self);

Return the object path starting with TP_CONN_OBJECT_PATH_BASE that represents this connection on D-Bus.

The returned string belongs to the TpBaseConnection and must be copied by the caller if it will be kept.

If this connection has never been present on D-Bus (tp_base_connection_register() has never been called), return NULL instead.

self :

the connection

Returns :

the object path of this connection, or NULL. [allow-none][transfer none]

Since 0.19.1


tp_base_connection_get_dbus_daemon ()

TpDBusDaemon *      tp_base_connection_get_dbus_daemon  (TpBaseConnection *self);

self :

                                                         GError **error);

Make the connection object appear on the bus, returning the bus name and object path used. If TRUE is returned, the connection owns the bus name, and will release it when destroyed.

Since 0.11.11, bus_name and object_path may be NULL if the strings are not needed.

self :

A connection

cm_name :

The name of the connection manager in the Telepathy protocol

bus_name :

Used to return the bus name corresponding to the connection if TRUE is returned. To be freed by the caller. [out]

Returns the "self-handle" property, which is guaranteed not to be 0 once the connection has moved to the CONNECTED state.

self :

A connection

Returns :

the current self handle of the connection.

Since 0.7.15


tp_base_connection_set_self_handle ()

void                tp_base_connection_set_self_handle  (TpBaseConnection *self,
                                                         TpHandle self_handle);

Sets the "self-handle" property. self_handle may not be 0 once the connection has moved to the CONNECTED state.

self :

A connection

self_handle :

The new self handle for the connection.

Since 0.7.15


tp_base_connection_get_status ()

TpConnectionStatus  tp_base_connection_get_status       (TpBaseConnection *self);

Return the status of this connection, as set by tp_base_connection_change_status() or similar functions like tp_base_connection_disconnect_with_dbus_error().

Like the corresponding D-Bus property, this method returns TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED in two situations: either the connection is newly-created (and has never emitted "status-changed"), or D-Bus clients have already been told that it has been destroyed (by the Disconnect D-Bus method, a failed attempt to connect, or loss of an established connection). Use tp_base_connection_is_destroyed() to distinguish between the two.

self :

the connection

Returns :

the value of "dbus-status"

Since 0.19.1


tp_base_connection_is_destroyed ()

gboolean            tp_base_connection_is_destroyed     (TpBaseConnection *self);

Return whether this connection has already emitted the D-Bus signal indicating that it has been destroyed.

In particular, this can be used to distinguish between the two reasons why tp_base_connection_get_status() would return TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED: it will return FALSE if the connection is newly-created, and TRUE if the Disconnect D-Bus method has been called, an attempt to connect has failed, or an established connection has encountered an error.

self :

the connection

Returns :

TRUE if this connection is disappearing from D-Bus

Since 0.19.1


tp_base_connection_check_connected ()

gboolean            tp_base_connection_check_connected  (TpBaseConnection *self,
                                                         GError **error);

Return whether this connection is fully active and connected. If it is not, raise TP_ERROR_DISCONNECTED.

This is equivalent to checking whether tp_base_connection_get_status() returns TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_CONNECTED; it is provided because methods on the connection often need to make this check, and return a GError if it fails.

self :

the connection

error :

used to raise TP_ERROR_DISCONNECTED if FALSE is returned

Returns :

TRUE if this connection is connected

tp_base_connection_change_status ()

                                                         TpConnectionStatusReason reason);

Change the status of the connection. The allowed state transitions are:

Before the transition to TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_CONNECTED, the implementation must have discovered the handle for the local user and passed it to tp_base_connection_set_self_handle().

Changing from NEW to CONNECTED is implemented by doing the transition from NEW to CONNECTING, followed by the transition from CONNECTING to CONNECTED; it's exactly equivalent to calling tp_base_connection_change_status for those two transitions one after the other.

Any other valid transition does the following, in this order:

To provide more details about what happened when moving to status TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED due to an error, consider calling tp_base_connection_disconnect_with_dbus_error() instead of this function.

Changed in 0.7.35: the self_handle member of TpBaseConnection was previously set to 0 at this stage. It now remains non-zero until the object is disposed.

                                                         TpConnectionStatusReason reason);

Changes the TpBaseConnection.status of self to TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED, as if by a call to tp_base_connection_change_status(), but additionally emits the ConnectionError D-Bus signal to provide more details about the error.

Well-known keys for details are documented in the Telepathy specification's definition of the ConnectionError signal, and include:

  • "debug-message", whose value should have type G_TYPE_STRING, for debugging information about the disconnection which should not be shown to the user
  • "server-message", whose value should also have type G_TYPE_STRING, for a human-readable error message from the server (in an unspecified language) explaining why the user was disconnected.

error_name :

The D-Bus error with which the connection changed status to Disconnected

details :

Further details of the error, as a hash table where the keys are strings as defined in the Telepathy specification, and the values are GValues. NULL is allowed, and treated as an empty hash table.

Changes the TpBaseConnection.status of self to TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED, as if by a call to tp_base_connection_change_status(), but additionally emits the ConnectionError D-Bus signal to provide more details about the error.

Well-known keys for details are documented in the Telepathy specification's definition of the ConnectionError signal, and include:

Add some interfaces to the list supported by this Connection. If you're going to call this function at all, you must do so before moving to state CONNECTED (or DISCONNECTED); if you don't call it, only the set of interfaces always present (get_interfaces_always_present in TpBaseConnectionClass) will be supported.

interfaces :

A NULL-terminated array of D-Bus interface names, which must remain valid at least until the connection enters state TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED (in practice, you should either use static strings, or use strdup'd strings and free them in the dispose callback).

Property Details

The "account-path-suffix" property

  "account-path-suffix"      gchar*                : Read / Write / Construct Only

The suffix of the account object path such as "gabble/jabber/chris_40example_2ecom0" for the account whose object path is TP_ACCOUNT_OBJECT_PATH_BASE + "gabble/jabber/chris_40example_2ecom0". The same as returned by tp_account_get_path_suffix().

It is given by the AccountManager in the connection parameters. Or NULL if the ConnectionManager or the AccountManager are too old.

Default value: NULL

Since 0.23.2


The "dbus-daemon" property

  "dbus-daemon"              TpDBusDaemon*         : Read / Write / Construct Only

TpDBusDaemon object encapsulating this object's connection to D-Bus. Read-only except during construction.

If this property is NULL or omitted during construction, the object will automatically attempt to connect to the starter or session bus with tp_dbus_daemon_dup() just after it is constructed; if this fails, this property will remain NULL, and tp_base_connection_register() will fail.

Since 0.11.3


The "dbus-status" property

  "dbus-status"              guint                 : Read

The Connection.Status as visible on D-Bus, which is the same as TpBaseConnection.status except that TP_INTERNAL_CONNECTION_STATUS_NEW is replaced by TP_CONNECTION_STATUS_DISCONNECTED.

The "notify" signal is not currently emitted for this property.

Allowed values: <= 2

Default value: 2

Since 0.11.3


The "has-immortal-handles" property

  "has-immortal-handles"     gboolean              : Read

This property is not useful to use directly. Its value is TRUE, to indicate that this version of telepathy-glib never unreferences handles until the connection becomes disconnected.

Default value: TRUE

Since 0.13.8


The "interfaces" property

  "interfaces"               GStrv                 : Read

The set of D-Bus interfaces available on this Connection, other than Connection itself.

Since 0.11.3


The "protocol" property

  "protocol"                 gchar*                : Read / Write / Construct Only

Identifier used in the Telepathy protocol when this connection's protocol name is required.

Default value: NULL


The "self-handle" property

  "self-handle"              guint                 : Read / Write

The handle of type TP_HANDLE_TYPE_CONTACT representing the local user. Must be set nonzero by the subclass before moving to state CONNECTED.

Default value: 0

Since 0.7.15


The "self-id" property

  "self-id"                  gchar*                : Read

Signal Details

The "clients-interested" signal

void                user_function                      (TpBaseConnection *connection,
                                                        gchar            *token,

Emitted when a client becomes interested in any token that was added with tp_base_connection_add_possible_client_interest().

The "signal detail" is a GQuark representing token. Modules implementing an interface (Location, say) should typically connect to a detailed signal like "clients-interested::org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.Interface.Location" rather than receiving all emissions of this signal.

connection :

the TpBaseConnection

token :

the interface or part of an interface in which clients are newly interested

user_data :

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

The "clients-uninterested" signal

void                user_function                      (TpBaseConnection *connection,
                                                        gchar            *token,
                                                        gpointer          user_data)       : Has Details

Emitted when no more clients are interested in an interface added with tp_base_connection_add_possible_client_interest(), for which "clients-interested" was previously emitted.

As with "clients-interested", the "signal detail" is a GQuark representing token. Modules implementing an interface (Location, say) should typically connect to a detailed signal like "clients-uninterested::org.freedesktop.Telepathy.Connection.Interface.Location" rather than receiving all emissions of this signal.

connection :

the TpBaseConnection

token :

the interface or part of an interface in which clients are no longer interested

user_data :

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

The "shutdown-finished" signal

void                user_function                      (TpBaseConnection *connection,
                                                        gpointer          user_data)       : Has Details

Emitted by tp_base_connection_finish_shutdown() when the underlying network connection has been closed; TpBaseConnectionManager listens for this signal and removes connections from its table of active connections when it is received.

connection :

the TpBaseConnection

user_data :

user data set when the signal handler was connected.
