    • putInt

      public void putInt​(java.lang.String key, int value)
      Associates a String object representing the specified int value with the specified key in this node. The associated string is the one that would be returned if the int value were passed to Integer.toString(int). This method is intended for use in conjunction with IPreferences.getInt(java.lang.String, int) method.

      Implementor's note: it is not necessary that the property value be represented by a String object in the backing store. If the backing store supports integer values, it is not unreasonable to use them. This implementation detail is not visible through the Preferences API, which allows the value to be read as an int (with getInt or a String (with get) type.

      Specified by:
      putInt in interface IPreferences
      Parameters:
      key - key with which the string form of value is to be associated.

Returns the specified default if there is no value associated with the key, the backing store is inaccessible, or if Integer.parseInt(String) would throw a NumberFormatException if the associated value were passed. This method is intended for use in conjunction with the IPreferences.putInt(java.lang.String, int) method.
      Specified by:

The associated String object is the one that would be returned if the long value were passed to Long.toString(long). This method is intended for use in conjunction with the IPreferences.getLong(java.lang.String, long) method.

      Implementor's note: it is not necessary that the value be represented by a String type in the backing store. If the backing store supports long values, it is not unreasonable to use them. This implementation detail is not visible through the Preferences API, which allows the value to be read as a long (with getLong or a String (with get) type.

This method is intended for use in conjunction with the IPreferences.getBoolean(java.lang.String, boolean) method.

      Implementor's note: it is not necessary that the value be represented by a string in the backing store. If the backing store supports boolean values, it is not unreasonable to use them.

This method is intended for use in conjunction with the IPreferences.getByteArray(java.lang.String, byte[]) method.

      Implementor's note: it is not necessary that the value be represented by a String type in the backing store. If the backing store supports byte[] values, it is not unreasonable to use them.

      Returns:
      the specified Preferences object.

      IPreferences.flush()
    • nodeExists

      public boolean nodeExists​(java.lang.String pathName) throws java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException
      Returns true if the named node exists. Accepts a relative or absolute pathname. Absolute pathnames (which begin with '/') are interpreted relative to the root of this node. Relative pathnames (which begin with any character other than '/') are interpreted relative to this node itself. The pathname "" is valid, and refers to this node itself.

      If this node (or an ancestor) has already been removed with the IPreferences.removeNode() method, it is legal to invoke this method, but only with the pathname ""; the invocation will return false. Thus, the idiom p.nodeExists("") may be used to test whether p has been removed.

      Specified by:
      nodeExists in interface IPreferences
      Parameters:
      pathName - the path name of the node whose existence is to be checked.
      Returns:
      true if the specified node exists.
      Throws:
      java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException - if this operation cannot be completed due to a failure in the backing store, or inability to communicate with it.
    • removeNode

      public void removeNode() throws java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException
      Removes this node and all of its descendants, invalidating any properties contained in the removed nodes. Once a node has been removed, attempting any method other than name(),absolutePath() or nodeExists("") on the corresponding Preferences instance will fail with an IllegalStateException. (The methods defined on Object can still be invoked on a node after it has been removed; they will not throw IllegalStateException.)

      The removal is not guaranteed to be persistent until the flush method is called on the parent of this node.

      Specified by:
      removeNode in interface IPreferences
      Throws:
      java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException - if this operation cannot be completed due to a failure in the backing store, or inability to communicate with it.
      See Also:
      IPreferences.flush()
    • name

      public java.lang.String name()
      Returns this node's name, relative to its parent.
      Specified by:
      name in interface IPreferences
      Returns:
      this node's name, relative to its parent.
    • absolutePath

      public java.lang.String absolutePath()
      Returns this node's absolute path name. Note that:
      • Root node - The path name of the root node is "/".
      • Slash at end - Path names other than that of the root node may not end in slash ('/').
      • Unusual names -"." and ".." have no special significance in path names.
      • Illegal names - The only illegal path names are those that contain multiple consecutive slashes, or that end in slash and are not the root.
      Specified by:
      absolutePath in interface IPreferences
      Returns:
      this node's absolute path name.
    • getPreferencesService

      protected abstract AbstractPreferencesService getPreferencesService()
      Returns the preferences service.
      Returns:
      the preferences service
    • flush

      public void flush() throws java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException
      Forces any changes in the contents of this node and its descendants to the persistent store.

      Once this method returns successfully, it is safe to assume that all changes made in the subtree rooted at this node prior to the method invocation have become permanent.

      Implementations are free to flush changes into the persistent store at any time. They do not need to wait for this method to be called.

      When a flush occurs on a newly created node, it is made persistent, as are any ancestors (and descendants) that have yet to be made persistent. Note however that any properties value changes in ancestors are not guaranteed to be made persistent.

      Specified by:
      flush in interface IPreferences
      Throws:
      java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException - if this operation cannot be completed due to a failure in the backing store, or inability to communicate with it.
      See Also:
      IPreferences.sync()
    • sync

      public void sync() throws java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException
      Ensures that future reads from this node and its descendants reflect any changes that were committed to the persistent store (from any VM) prior to the sync invocation. As a side-effect, forces any changes in the contents of this node and its descendants to the persistent store, as if the flush method had been invoked on this node.
      Specified by:
      sync in interface IPreferences
      Throws:
      java.util.prefs.BackingStoreException - if this operation cannot be completed due to a failure in the backing store, or inability to communicate with it.
