class Application
class Response

Detailed Description

This class is responsible receiving the request and sending the response. It must be reimplemented by real HTTP engines due some pure virtual methods.

The subclass must create an Engine per thread (worker core), if the Application passed to the constructor has a worker core greater than 0 it will issue a new Application instance, failing to do so a fatal error is generated (usually indicating that the Application does not have a Q_INVOKABLE constructor).

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ Engine()

Engine::Engine ( Cutelyst::Application app,
int  workerCore,
const QVariantMap &  opts 

Constructs an Engine object, where app is the application that might be used to create new instances if workerCore is greater than 1, opts is the options loaded by the engine subclass.

appThe application loaded
workerCoreThe thread number
optsThe configuation options

Definition at line 57 of file engine.cpp.

◆ app()

Application * Engine::app ( ) const

Returns the application associated with this engine.

◆ camelCaseByteArrayHeader()

static void Cutelyst::Engine::camelCaseByteArrayHeader ( QByteArray &  key)

Convert Header key to camel case

Definition at line 139 of file engine.h.

◆ camelCaseHeader()

static QString Cutelyst::Engine::camelCaseHeader ( const QString &  headerKey)

Returns the header key in camel case form

Definition at line 116 of file engine.h.

◆ config()

QVariantMap Engine::config ( const QString &  entity) const

◆ defaultHeaders()

Headers & Engine::defaultHeaders ( )

This is the HTTP default response headers that each request gets

Definition at line 302 of file engine.cpp.

◆ httpStatusMessage()

const char * Engine::httpStatusMessage ( quint16  status,
int *  len = nullptr 

Returns the HTTP status message for the given status.

Definition at line 161 of file engine.cpp.

◆ initApplication()

bool Engine::initApplication ( )

This method inits the application and calls init on the engine. It must be called on the engine's thread

true if succeded

Definition at line 125 of file engine.cpp.

◆ isZeroWorker()

bool Cutelyst::Engine::isZeroWorker ( ) const

Returns true if this is the Zero worker, ie if workerId() == 0 and workerCore() == 0

the value returned from this function is only valid when postFork() is issued.

Definition at line 217 of file engine.h.

References workerCore(), and workerId().

◆ loadIniConfig()

QVariantMap Engine::loadIniConfig ( const QString &  filename)

Returns a QVariantMap with the INI parsed from filename.

Definition at line 332 of file engine.cpp.

◆ loadJsonConfig()

QVariantMap Engine::loadJsonConfig ( const QString &  filename)

Returns a QVariantMap with the JSON parsed from filename.

Definition at line 356 of file engine.cpp.

◆ opts()

QVariantMap Engine::opts ( ) const

Engine options

Definition at line 314 of file engine.cpp.

Referenced by Engine().

◆ postForkApplication()

bool Engine::postForkApplication ( )

Subclasses must be call after the engine forks by the worker thread, if no forking is involved it must be called once the worker thread has started.

For convenience QThread::currentThread() has it's object name set with the worker core number.

true if the engine should use this process

Definition at line 142 of file engine.cpp.

◆ processRequest()

void Engine::processRequest ( EngineRequest request)

Process the EngineRequest req, the caller must delete the context when the request is finished.

This method allows for engines to keep the Context alive while processing websocket data.

Definition at line 308 of file engine.cpp.

◆ processRequestAsync

void Cutelyst::Engine::processRequestAsync ( Cutelyst::EngineRequest request)

Process the EngineRequest req Async, the caller must delete the context when the request is finished.

This method allows for engines to keep the Context alive while processing websocket data.

◆ setConfig()

void Engine::setConfig ( const QVariantMap &  config)

Sets the configuration to be used by Application

Definition at line 326 of file engine.cpp.

References config().

◆ time()

quint64 Engine::time ( )
current micro seconds time to be used for stats, the default implementation returns QDateTime::currentMSecsSinceEpoch() * 1000, to become micro seconds, so if the engine supports a more precise value it can reimplement this method.

Definition at line 156 of file engine.cpp.

◆ workerCore()

int Engine::workerCore ( ) const

Returns the worker core set when constructing the engine

the worker core (thread)

Definition at line 119 of file engine.cpp.

Referenced by Engine(), isZeroWorker(), and Cutelyst::Application::setup().

◆ workerId()

int Engine::workerId ( ) const
pure virtual

Reimplement this to get the workerId of the engine subclass, this is the same as processes id.

The id is the number of the spawned engine process, a single process workerId = 0, two process 0 for the first 1 for the second.

the value returned from this function is only valid when postFork() is issued.
the worker id (process)
