Class TransactionalNull

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class TransactionalNull extends Object implements Transactional
A null action Transactional. Does not protect anything but does track the transaction status. It does provide "abort". c.f. TransactionalNotSupported which throws exceptions rather than have "do nothing" operations.

    • create

      public static Transactional create()
    • transactionMode

      public ReadWrite transactionMode()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Return the current mode of the transaction - "read" or "write". If the caller is not in a transaction, this method returns null.
      Specified by:
      transactionMode in interface Transactional
    • transactionType

      public TxnType transactionType()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Return the transaction type used in begin(TxnType). If the caller is not in a transaction, this method returns null.
      Specified by:
      transactionType in interface Transactional
    • begin

      public void begin(ReadWrite readWrite)
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Start either a READ or WRITE transaction.
      Specified by:
      begin in interface Transactional
    • begin

      public void begin(TxnType type)
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Start a transaction.
      READ or WRITE transactions start in that state and do not change for the lifetime of the transaction.
      • WRITE: this guarantees a WRITE will complete if commit() is called. The same as begin(ReadWrite.WRITE).
      • READ: the transaction can not promote to WRITE,ensuring read-only access to the data. The same as begin(ReadWrite.READ).
      • READ_PROMOTE: the transaction will go from "read" to "write" if an update is attempted and if the dataset has not been changed by another write transaction. See also Transactional.promote().
      • READ_COMMITTED_PROMOTE: Use this with care. The promotion will succeed but changes from other transactions become visible.
      Read committed: at the point transaction attempts promotion from "read" to "write", the system checks if the dataset has change since the transaction started (called begin). If READ_PROMOTE, the dataset must not have changed; if READ_COMMITTED_PROMOTE any intermediate changes are visible but the application can not assume any data it has read in the transaction is the same as it was at the point the transaction started.

      This operation is optional and some implementations may throw a JenaTransactionException exception for some or all TxnType values.

      See Transactional.begin(ReadWrite) for a form that is required of implementations.

      Specified by:
      begin in interface Transactional
    • promote

      public boolean promote(Transactional.Promote txnType)
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Attempt to promote a transaction from "read" mode to "write" and the transaction. This method allows the form of promotion to be specified. The transaction must not have been started with READ, which is read-only.

      An argument of READ_PROMOTE treats the promotion as if the transaction was started with READ_PROMOTE (any other writer commiting since the transaction started blocks promotion) and READ_COMMITTED_PROMOTE treats the promotion as if the transaction was started with READ_COMMITTED_PROMOTE (intemediate writer commits become visible).

      Returns "true" if the transaction is in write mode after the call. The method always succeeds of the transaction is already "write".

      This method returns true if a READ_PROMOTE or READ_COMMITTED_PROMOTE is promoted.

      This method returns false if a READ_PROMOTE can't be promoted - the transaction is still valid and in "read" mode.

      This method throws an exception if there is an attempt to promote a READ transaction.

      Specified by:
      promote in interface Transactional
    • commit

      public void commit()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Commit a transaction - finish the transaction and make any changes permanent (if a "write" transaction)
      Specified by:
      commit in interface Transactional
    • abort

      public void abort()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Abort a transaction - finish the transaction and undo any changes (if a "write" transaction)
      Specified by:
      abort in interface Transactional
    • isInTransaction

      public boolean isInTransaction()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Say whether inside a transaction.
      Specified by:
      isInTransaction in interface Transactional
    • end

      public void end()
      Description copied from interface: Transactional
      Finish the transaction - if a write transaction and commit() has not been called, then abort
      Specified by:
      end in interface Transactional
    • remove

      public void remove()
