Description

This factory constructs various TpProxy subclasses as well as TpContact, which guarantees that at most one instance of those objects will exist for a given remote object or contact. It also stores the desired features for contacts and each type of proxy.

Note that the factory will not prepare the desired features: it is the caller's responsibility to do so. By default, only core features are requested.

Currently supported classes are TpAccount, TpConnection, TpChannel and TpContact. Those objects should always be acquired through a factory or a "larger" object (e.g. getting the TpConnection from a TpAccount), rather than being constructed directly.

One can subclass TpSimpleClientFactory and override some of its virtual methods to construct more specialized objects. See TpAutomaticClientFactory for a subclass which automatically constructs subclasses of TpChannel for common channel types.

An application using its own factory subclass would look like this:

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
  TpSimpleClientFactory *factory;
  TpAccountManager *manager;

  factory = my_factory_new ();
  manager = tp_account_manager_new_with_factory (factory);
  tp_account_manager_set_default (manager);

  ...
  tp_proxy_prepare_async (manager, am_features, callback, user_data);
  ...
}

The call to tp_account_manager_set_default() near the beginning of main() will ensure that any libraries or plugins which also use Telepathy (and call tp_account_manager_dup()) will share your TpAccountManager.

The class structure for TpSimpleClientFactory.

TpSimpleClientFactory maintains a cache of previously-constructed proxy objects, so the implementations of create_account, create_connection, create_channel, and create_contact may assume that a new object should be created when they are called. The default implementations create unadorned instances of the relevant classes; subclasses of the factory may choose to create more interesting proxy subclasses.

The default implementation of dup_channel_features returns TP_CHANNEL_FEATURE_CORE, plus all features passed to tp_simple_client_factory_add_channel_features() by the application. Subclasses may override this method to prepare more interesting features from subclasses of TpChannel, for instance. The default implementations of the other dup_x_features methods behave similarly.

tp_simple_client_factory_new ()

TpSimpleClientFactory * tp_simple_client_factory_new    (TpDBusDaemon *dbus);

Creates a new TpSimpleClientFactory instance. If dbus is NULL, tp_dbus_daemon_dup() will be used.

Returns :

tp_simple_client_factory_ensure_account ()

TpAccount *         tp_simple_client_factory_ensure_account
                                                        (TpSimpleClientFactory *self,

                                                         GError **error);

Returns a TpAccount proxy for the account at object_path. The returned TpAccount is cached; the same TpAccount object will be returned by this function repeatedly, as long as at least one reference exists.

Note that the returned TpAccount is not guaranteed to be ready; the caller is responsible for calling tp_proxy_prepare_async() with the desired features (as given by tp_simple_client_factory_dup_account_features()).

This function is rather low-level. tp_account_manager_dup_valid_accounts() and "validity-changed" are more appropriate for most applications.

self :

a TpSimpleClientFactory object

object_path :

the object path of an account

immutable_properties :

the immutable properties of the account, or NULL. [transfer none][element-type utf8 GObject.Value]

error :

Returns :

a reference to a TpAccount; see tp_account_new(). [transfer full]

                                                         TpAccount *account);

                                                         const GQuark *features);

Add features to the desired features to be prepared on TpAccount objects. Those features will be added to the features already returned be tp_simple_client_factory_dup_account_features().

It is not necessary to add TP_ACCOUNT_FEATURE_CORE as it is already included by default.

Note that these features will not be added to existing TpAccount objects; the user must call tp_proxy_prepare_async() themself.

self :

a TpSimpleClientFactory object

features :

an array of desired features, ending with 0; NULL is equivalent to an array containing only 0. [transfer none][array zero-terminated=1][allow-none]

The same as tp_simple_client_factory_add_account_features(), but with a more convenient calling convention from C.

Returns a TpConnection proxy for the connection at object_path. The returned TpConnection is cached; the same TpConnection object will be returned by this function repeatedly, as long as at least one reference exists.

Note that the returned TpConnection is not guaranteed to be ready; the caller is responsible for calling tp_proxy_prepare_async() with the desired features (as given by tp_simple_client_factory_dup_connection_features()).

This function is rather low-level. "connection" is more appropriate for most applications.
