    public abstract class Subscriber
    extends Object
    A Subscriber provides synchronization between local resources and a remote location that is used to share those resources.

    When queried for the SyncInfo corresponding to a local resource using getSyncInfo(IResource), the subscriber should not contact the server. Server round trips should only occur within the refresh method of the subscriber. Consequently, the implementation of a subscriber must cache enough state information for a remote resource to calculate the synchronization state without contacting the server. During a refresh, the latest remote resource state information should be fetched and cached. For a subscriber that supports three-way compare, the refresh should also fetch the latest base state unless this is available by some other means (e.g. for some repository tools, the base state is persisted on disk with the local resources).

    After a refresh, the subscriber must notify any listeners of local resources whose corresponding remote resource or base resource changed. The subscriber does not need to notify listeners when the state changes due to a local modification since local changes are available through the IResource delta mechanism. However, the subscriber must cache enough information (e.g. the local timestamp of when the file was in-sync with its corresponding remote resource) to determine if the file represents an outgoing change so that SyncInfo obtained after a delta will indicate that the file has an outgoing change. The subscriber must also notify listeners when roots are added or removed. For example, a subscriber for a repository provider would fire a root added event when a project was shared with a repository. No event is required when a root is deleted as this is available through the IResource delta mechanism. It is up to clients to re-query the subscriber when the state of a resource changes locally by listening to IResource deltas.

    The remote and base states can also include the state for resources that do not exist locally (i.e outgoing deletions or incoming additions). When queried for the members of a local resource, the subscriber should include any children for which a remote exists even if the local does not.

      • getName

        public abstract String getName()
        Return the name of this subscription, in a format that is suitable for display to an end user.
        Returns:
        String representing the name of this subscription.
      • isSupervised

        public abstract boolean isSupervised​(IResource resource)
                                      throws TeamException
        Returns true if this resource is supervised by this subscriber. A supervised resource is one for which this subscriber maintains the synchronization state. Supervised resources are the only resources returned when members(IResource) was invoked with the parent of the resource. Returns false in all other cases.
        Parameters:
        resource - the resource being tested
        Returns:
        true if this resource is supervised, and false otherwise
        Throws:
        TeamException
      • members

        public abstract IResource[] members​(IResource resource)
                                     throws TeamException
        Returns all non-transient member resources of the given resource. The result will include entries for resources that exist either in the workspace or are implicated in an incoming change. Returns an empty list if the given resource exists neither in the workspace nor in the corresponding subscriber location, or if the given resource is transient.

        This is a fast operation; the repository is not contacted.

        Parameters:
        resource - the resource
        Returns:
        a list of member resources
        Throws:
        TeamException
      • roots

        public abstract IResource[] roots()
        Returns the list of root resources this subscriber considers for synchronization. A client should call this method first then can safely call members to navigate the resources managed by this subscriber.
        Returns:
        a list of resources
      • getSyncInfo

        public abstract SyncInfo getSyncInfo​(IResource resource)
                                      throws TeamException
        Returns synchronization info for the given resource, or null if there is no synchronization info because the subscriber does not apply to this resource.

        Note that sync info may be returned for non-existing or for resources which have no corresponding remote resource.

        This method will be quick. If synchronization calculation requires content from the server it must be cached when the subscriber is refreshed. A client should call refresh before calling this method to ensure that the latest information is available for computing the sync state.

        The sync-info node returned by this method does not fully describe all types of changes. A more descriptive change can be obtained from the getDiff(IResource) method.

        Parameters:
        resource - the resource of interest
        Returns:
        sync info
        Throws:
        TeamException

        getDiff(IResource)
      • getResourceComparator

        public abstract IResourceVariantComparator getResourceComparator()
        Returns the comparison criteria that will be used by the sync info created by this subscriber.
        Returns:
        the comparator to use when computing sync states for this subscriber.
      • refresh

        public abstract void refresh​(IResource[] resources,
                                     int depth,
                                     IProgressMonitor monitor)
                              throws TeamException
        Refreshes the resource hierarchy from the given resources and their children (to the specified depth) from the corresponding resources in the remote location. Resources are ignored in the following cases:
        • if they do not exist either in the workspace or in the corresponding remote location
        • if the given resource is not supervised by this subscriber
        • if the given resource is a closed project (they are ineligible for synchronization)

        Typical synchronization operations use the statuses computed by this method as the basis for determining what to do. It is possible for the actual sync status of the resource to have changed since the current local sync status was refreshed. Operations typically skip resources with stale sync information. The chances of stale information being used can be reduced by running this method (where feasible) before doing other operations. Note that this will of course affect performance.

        The depth parameter controls whether refreshing is performed on just the given resource (depth= DEPTH_ZERO), the resource and its children (depth= DEPTH_ONE), or recursively to the resource and all its descendents (depth= DEPTH_INFINITE). Use depth DEPTH_ONE, rather than depth DEPTH_ZERO, to ensure that new members of a project or folder are detected.

        This method might change resources; any changes will be reported in a subsequent subscriber resource change event indicating changes to server sync status.

        This method contacts the server and is therefore long-running; progress and cancellation are provided by the given progress monitor.

        Parameters:
        resources - the resources
        depth - valid values are DEPTH_ZERO, DEPTH_ONE, or DEPTH_INFINITE
        monitor - progress monitor, or null if progress reporting and cancellation are not desired
        Throws:
        TeamException - if this method fails. Reasons include:
        • The server could not be contacted.
      • addListener

        public void addListener​(ISubscriberChangeListener listener)
        Adds a listener to this team subscriber. Has no effect if an identical listener is already registered.

        Team resource change listeners are informed about state changes that affect the resources supervised by this subscriber.

        Parameters:
        listener - a team resource change listener
      • removeListener

        public void removeListener​(ISubscriberChangeListener listener)
        Removes a listener previously registered with this team subscriber. Has no effect if an identical listener is not registered.
        Parameters:
        listener - a team resource change listener
      • collectOutOfSync

        public void collectOutOfSync​(IResource[] resources,
                                     int depth,
                                     SyncInfoSet set,
                                     IProgressMonitor monitor)
        Adds all out-of-sync resources (getKind() != SyncInfo.IN_SYNC) that occur under the given resources to the specified depth. The purpose of this method is to provide subscribers a means of optimizing the determination of all out-of-sync descendants of a set of resources.

        If any of the directly provided resources are not supervised by the subscriber, then they should be removed from the set. If errors occur while determining the sync info for the resources, they should be added to the set using SyncInfoSet.addError.

        Parameters:
        resources - the root of the resource subtrees from which out-of-sync sync info should be collected
        depth - the depth to which sync info should be collected (one of IResource.DEPTH_ZERO, IResource.DEPTH_ONE, or IResource.DEPTH_INFINITE)
        set - the sync info set to which out-of-sync resources should be added (or removed). Any errors should be added to the set as well.
        monitor - a progress monitor
      • fireTeamResourceChange

        protected void fireTeamResourceChange​(ISubscriberChangeEvent[] deltas)
        Fires a team resource change event to all registered listeners. Only listeners registered at the time this method is called are notified. Listener notification makes use of an ISafeRunnable to ensure that client exceptions do not affect the notification to other clients.
      • getDiff

        public IDiff getDiff​(IResource resource)
                      throws CoreException
        Returns synchronization info, in the form of an IDiff for the given resource, or null if there is no synchronization info because the subscriber does not apply to this resource or the resource is in-sync.

        Note that a diff may be returned for non-existing or for resources which have no corresponding remote resource.

        This method will be quick. If synchronization calculation requires content from the server it must be cached when the subscriber is refreshed. A client should call refresh before calling this method to ensure that the latest information is available for computing the diff.

        The diff node returned by this method describes the changes associated with the given resource in more detail than the sync-info returned by calling getSyncInfo(IResource).

        Parameters:
        resource - the resource of interest
        Returns:
        the diff for the resource or null
        Throws:
        CoreException
        TeamException - if errors occur

                            IProgressMonitor monitor)
                     throws TeamException
        Refresh the subscriber for the given traversals. By default this method calls refresh(IResource[], int, IProgressMonitor) for each traversal. Any resources covered by the traversals are ignored in the following cases:
        • if they do not exist either in the workspace or in the corresponding remote location
        • if the given resource is not supervised by this subscriber
        • if the given resource is a closed project (they are ineligible for synchronization)

        Subclasses may override.

        Parameters:
        traversals - the traversals to be refreshed
        monitor - a progress monitor

                            IProgressMonitor monitor)
                     throws CoreException
        Return the synchronization state of the given resource mapping. Only return the portion of the synchronization state that matches the provided stateMask. The synchronization state flags that are guaranteed to be interpreted by this method are: Other flags can be included and may or may not be interpreted by the subscriber.

        An element will only include IDiff.ADD in the returned state if all resources covered by the traversals mappings are added. Similarly, IDiff.REMOVE will only be included if all the resources covered by the traversals are deleted. Otherwise IDiff.CHANGE will be returned.

        Parameters:
        mapping - the resource mapping whose synchronization state is to be determined
        stateMask - the mask that identifies the state flags of interested
        monitor - a progress monitor
