class OGRSFDriverRegistrar

Detailed Description

This class represents a data source. A data source potentially consists of many layers (OGRLayer). A data source normally consists of one, or a related set of files, though the name doesn't have to be a real item in the file system.

When an OGRDataSource is destroyed, all it's associated OGRLayers objects are also destroyed.


Member Function Documentation

OGRLayer * OGRDataSource::CopyLayer ( OGRLayer poSrcLayer,
const char *  pszNewName,
char **  papszOptions = NULL 
) [virtual]

Duplicate an existing layer.

This method creates a new layer, duplicate the field definitions of the source layer and then duplicate each features of the source layer. The papszOptions argument can be used to control driver specific creation options. These options are normally documented in the format specific documentation. The source layer may come from another dataset.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_CopyLayer().

Parameters:
poSrcLayer source layer.
pszNewName the name of the layer to create.
papszOptions a StringList of name=value options. Options are driver specific.
Returns:
an handle to the layer, or NULL if an error occurs.

Reimplemented in OGRMutexedDataSource.

OGRLayer * OGRDataSource::CreateLayer ( const char *  pszName,
OGRSpatialReference poSpatialRef = NULL,
OGRwkbGeometryType  eGType = wkbUnknown,
char **  papszOptions = NULL 
) [virtual]

This method attempts to create a new layer on the data source with the indicated name, coordinate system, geometry type.

The papszOptions argument can be used to control driver specific creation options. These options are normally documented in the format specific documentation.

Parameters:
pszName the name for the new layer. This should ideally not match any existing layer on the datasource.
poSpatialRef the coordinate system to use for the new layer, or NULL if no coordinate system is available.
eGType the geometry type for the layer. Use wkbUnknown if there are no constraints on the types geometry to be written.
papszOptions a StringList of name=value options. Options are driver specific.
Returns:
NULL is returned on failure, or a new OGRLayer handle on success.

Example:

#include "ogrsf_frmts.h" 
#include "cpl_string.h"

...

        OGRLayer *poLayer;
        char     **papszOptions;

        if( !poDS->TestCapability( ODsCCreateLayer ) )
        {
        ...
        }

        papszOptions = CSLSetNameValue( papszOptions, "DIM", "2" );
        poLayer = poDS->CreateLayer( "NewLayer", NULL, wkbUnknown,
                                     papszOptions );
        CSLDestroy( papszOptions );

        if( poLayer == NULL )
        {
            ...
        }

OGRErr OGRDataSource::DeleteLayer ( int  iLayer  )  [virtual]

Delete the indicated layer from the datasource.

If this method is supported the ODsCDeleteLayer capability will test TRUE on the OGRDataSource.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_DeleteLayer().

Parameters:
iLayer the index of the layer to delete.
Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success, or OGRERR_UNSUPPORTED_OPERATION if deleting layers is not supported for this datasource.

Reimplemented in OGRMutexedDataSource.

Referenced by OGRMutexedDataSource::DeleteLayer().

int OGRDataSource::Dereference (  ) 

Decrement datasource reference count.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_Dereference().

Returns:
the reference count after decrementing.
void OGRDataSource::DestroyDataSource ( OGRDataSource poDS  )  [static]

Closes opened datasource and releases allocated resources.

This static method will close and destroy a datasource. It is equivelent to calling delete on the object, but it ensures that the deallocation is properly executed within the GDAL libraries heap on platforms where this can matter (win32).

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_Destroy().

Parameters:
poDS pointer to allocated datasource object.
OGRLayer * OGRDataSource::ExecuteSQL ( const char *  pszStatement,
OGRGeometry poSpatialFilter,
const char *  pszDialect 
) [virtual]

Execute an SQL statement against the data store.

The result of an SQL query is either NULL for statements that are in error, or that have no results set, or an OGRLayer pointer representing a results set from the query. Note that this OGRLayer is in addition to the layers in the data store and must be destroyed with OGRDataSource::ReleaseResultSet() before the data source is closed (destroyed).

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_ExecuteSQL().

For more information on the SQL dialect supported internally by OGR review the OGR SQL document. Some drivers (ie. Oracle and PostGIS) pass the SQL directly through to the underlying RDBMS.

Starting with OGR 1.10, the SQLITE dialect can also be used.

Parameters:
pszStatement the SQL statement to execute.
poSpatialFilter geometry which represents a spatial filter. Can be NULL.
pszDialect allows control of the statement dialect. If set to NULL, the OGR SQL engine will be used, except for RDBMS drivers that will use their dedicated SQL engine, unless OGRSQL is explicitely passed as the dialect. Starting with OGR 1.10, the SQLITE dialect can also be used.
Returns:
an OGRLayer containing the results of the query. Deallocate with ReleaseResultSet().

Reimplemented in OGRMutexedDataSource.

Referenced by OGRSFDriverRegistrar::Open().

OGRErr OGRDataSource::Release (  ) 

Drop a reference to this datasource, and if the reference count drops to zero close (destroy) the datasource.

Internally this actually calls the OGRSFDriverRegistrar::ReleaseDataSource() method. This method is essentially a convenient alias.

This method is the same as the C function OGRReleaseDataSource().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE on success or an error code.

References OGRSFDriverRegistrar::GetRegistrar().

void OGRDataSource::ReleaseResultSet ( OGRLayer poResultsSet  )  [virtual]

Release results of ExecuteSQL().

This method should only be used to deallocate OGRLayers resulting from an ExecuteSQL() call on the same OGRDataSource. Failure to deallocate a results set before destroying the OGRDataSource may cause errors.

This method operate exactly as OGRDataSource::SetStyleTable() except that it assumes ownership of the passed table.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_SetStyleTableDirectly().

Parameters:
poStyleTable pointer to style table to set

Reimplemented in OGRMutexedDataSource.

Referenced by OGRMutexedDataSource::SetStyleTableDirectly().

OGRErr OGRDataSource::SyncToDisk (  )  [virtual]

Flush pending changes to disk.

This call is intended to force the datasource to flush any pending writes to disk, and leave the disk file in a consistent state. It would not normally have any effect on read-only datasources.

Some data sources do not implement this method, and will still return OGRERR_NONE. An error is only returned if an error occurs while attempting to flush to disk.

The default implementation of this method just calls the SyncToDisk() method on each of the layers. Conceptionally, calling SyncToDisk() on a datasource should include any work that might be accomplished by calling SyncToDisk() on layers in that data source.

In any event, you should always close any opened datasource with OGRDataSource::DestroyDataSource() that will ensure all data is correctly flushed.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_SyncToDisk().

Returns:
OGRERR_NONE if no error occurs (even if nothing is done) or an error code.

Reimplemented in OGRMutexedDataSource.

References GetLayer(), GetLayerCount(), and OGRLayer::SyncToDisk().

Referenced by OGRMutexedDataSource::SyncToDisk().

int OGRDataSource::TestCapability ( const char *  pszCapability  )  [pure virtual]

Test if capability is available.

One of the following data source capability names can be passed into this method, and a TRUE or FALSE value will be returned indicating whether or not the capability is available for this object.

  • ODsCCreateLayer: True if this datasource can create new layers.

  • ODsCDeleteLayer: True if this datasource can delete existing layers.

  • ODsCCreateGeomFieldAfterCreateLayer: True if the layers of this datasource support CreateGeomField() just after layer creation.

The #define macro forms of the capability names should be used in preference to the strings themselves to avoid mispelling.

This method is the same as the C function OGR_DS_TestCapability().

Parameters:
pszCapability the capability to test.
Returns:
TRUE if capability available otherwise FALSE.
