ODPI-C SODA Document Functions

SODA document handles are used to represent SODA documents in the database. They are created by calling one of the functions dpiSodaColl_getDoc(), dpiSodaColl_insertDoc() or dpiSodaColl_replaceDoc() and are destroyed when the last reference is released by calling the function dpiSodaDoc_release().

See this tracking issue for known issues with SODA.

int dpiSodaDoc_addRef(dpiSodaDoc *doc)

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

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – the document to which a reference is to be added. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

int dpiSodaDoc_getContent(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength, const char **encoding)

Returns the content of the document.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the content is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the document content, as a byte string, which will be populated upon successful comletion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the document content, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

encoding [OUT] – a pointer to the the encoding in which the content was stored, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. If the document content is not “application/json”, a NULL value will be returned.

int dpiSodaDoc_getCreatedOn(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength)

Returns the timestamp when the document was created, as a string, in ISO format. This value will be empty if the metadata used to create the collection in which the document is found does not support the storage of this attribute, or if the document was created using dpiSodaDb_createDocument().

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the creation timestamp is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the document creation timestamp, as a byte string in the encoding used for CHAR data, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the document creation timestamp, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

int dpiSodaDoc_getKey(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength)

Returns the key that uniquely identifies the document in the collection. This value will be empty if no key was supplied when the document was created using dpiSodaDb_createDocument().

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the key is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the document key, as a byte string in the encoding used for CHAR data, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the document key, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

int dpiSodaDoc_getLastModified(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength)

Returns the timestamp when the document was last modified, as a string, in ISO format. This value will be empty if the metadata used to create the collection in which the document is found does not support the storage of this attribute, or if the document was created using dpiSodaDb_createDocument().

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the last modified timestamp is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the document last modified timestamp, as a byte string in the encoding used for CHAR data, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the document last modified timestamp, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

int dpiSodaDoc_getMediaType(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength)

Returns the media type of the document.

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the media type is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the media type, as a byte string in the encoding used for CHAR data, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the media type, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

int dpiSodaDoc_getVersion(dpiSodaDoc *doc, const char **value, uint32_t *valueLength)

Returns the current version of the document. This value will be empty if the metadata used to create the collection in which the document is found does not support the storage of this attribute, or if the document was created using dpiSodaDb_createDocument().

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – a reference to the document from which the version is to be retrieved. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.

value [OUT] – a pointer to the version, as a byte string in the encoding used for CHAR data, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function. The pointer returned will remain valid as long as a reference to the document is held.

valueLength [OUT] – a pointer to the length of the version, in bytes, which will be populated upon successful completion of this function.

int dpiSodaDoc_release(dpiSodaDoc *doc)

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

The function returns DPI_SUCCESS for success and DPI_FAILURE for failure.

doc [IN] – the document from which a reference is to be released. If the reference is NULL or invalid an error is returned.
