InputDataTraits Struct Reference

#include </work/build/include/OnixS/FIXEngine/FIX/InputDataTraits.h>

Public Types

enum  Enum { CompleteMessagesOnly = 0, CouldContainPartialMessages = 1 }

Detailed Description

This enumeration allows to setup decoder in dependent-decoding (i.e. decodeEachMessageIndependently == false) mode for particular characteristics of the input data stream.

CompleteMessagesOnly allows to perform decoding faster, but requires explicit call of Decoder::reset when someone error occurs or Decoder::decode returns NULL. Decoder::decode() will fire exception if such reset was omitted after exception.

This commonly prohibits usage of the mode for decoding streaming data like TCP/IP stream. On another hand the mode is highly recommended for the data distributed via UDP multicast or other packet transport which requires reset of decoder at someone strongly determined points.

CouldContainPartialMessages initiates a bit slower decoding then CompleteMessagesOnly but could be used for stream data decoding using following method:

Decoder decoder(templates, dictionary, false, InputDataTraits::CouldContainPartialMessages);
const Message *message = 0;
while(!message) {
/* consume some data */
decoder.tryDecode(buffer, offset, count, &message, &numberOfDecodedBytes);

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum Enum

Faster decoding but requires explicit decoder reset when error occurs.


Slower decoding, allows to try to decode incomplete messages as well as handling of wrong/damaged data without subsequent explicit reset.
