Macros

#define OBX_C_API
 
#define OBX_VERSION_MAJOR   0
 When using ObjectBox as a dynamic library, you should verify that a compatible version was linked using obx_version() or obx_version_is_at_least(). More...

#define OBX_VERSION_PATCH   0
 
#define OBX_ID_NEW   0xFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF
 To be used for putting objects with prepared ID slots, e.g. obx_cursor_put_object(). More...
 
#define OBX_SUCCESS   0
 Value returned when no error occurred (0) More...
 
#define OBX_NOT_FOUND   404
 Returned by, e.g., get operations if nothing was found for a specific ID. This is NOT an error condition, and thus no "last error" info (code/text) is set. More...
 
#define OBX_NO_SUCCESS   1001
 Indicates that a function had "no success", which is typically a likely outcome and not a "hard error". This is NOT an error condition, and thus no "last error" info is set. More...
 
#define OBX_TIMEOUT   1002
 Indicates that a function reached a time out, which is typically a likely outcome and not a "hard error". This is NOT an error condition, and thus no "last error" info is set. More...
 
#define OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE   10001
 A request does not make sense in the current state. For example, doing actions on a closed object. More...
 
#define OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT   10002
 The passed arguments were illegal; e.g. passed null to a non-null argument. More...

Functions

OBX_C_API void obx_version (int *major, int *minor, int *patch)
 Return the (runtime) version of the library as ints. Pointers may be null. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_version_is_at_least (int major, int minor, int patch)
 Check if the (runtime) version of the library is equal to or higher than the given version ints. More...
 
OBX_C_API const char * obx_version_string (void)
 Return the (runtime) version of the library to be printed. The current format is "major.minor.patch" (e.g. "1.0.0") but may change in any future release. Thus, only use for information purposes. More...
 
OBX_C_API const char * obx_version_core_string (void)
 Return the version of the ObjectBox core to be printed (currently also contains a version date and features). The format may change in any future release; only use for information purposes. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_has_feature (OBXFeature feature)
 Checks whether the given feature is available in the currently loaded library. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_remove_db_files (char const *directory)
 Delete the store files from the given directory. More...
 
OBX_C_API size_t obx_db_file_size (char const *directory)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_debug_log (bool enabled)
 Enable (or disable) debug logging for ObjectBox internals. This requires a version of the library with the DebugLog feature. You can check if the feature is available with obx_has_feature(OBXFeature_DebugLog). More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_debug_log_enabled ()
 Checks if debug logs are enabled for ObjectBox internals. This depends on the availability of the DebugLog feature. If the feature is available, it returns the current state, which is adjustable via obx_debug_log(). Otherwise, it always returns false for standard release builds (or true if you are having a special debug version). More...
 
OBX_C_API int obx_thread_number ()
 Gets the number, as used by ObjectBox, of the current thread. This e.g. allows to "associate" the thread with ObjectBox logs (each log entry contains the thread number). More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_last_error_pop (obx_err *out_error, const char **out_message)
 Return the error status on the current thread and clear the error state. The buffer returned in out_message is valid only until the next call into ObjectBox. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_last_error_code (void)
 The last error raised by an ObjectBox API call on the current thread, or OBX_SUCCESS if no error occurred yet. Note that API calls do not clear this error code (also true for this method). Thus, if you receive an error from this, it's usually a good idea to call obx_last_error_clear() to clear the error state (or use obx_last_error_pop()) for future API calls. More...
 
OBX_C_API const char * obx_last_error_message (void)
 The error message string attached to the error returned by obx_last_error_code(). Like obx_last_error_code(), this is bound to the current thread, and this call does not clear the error state. The buffer returned is valid only until the next call into ObjectBox. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_last_error_secondary (void)
 The underlying error for the error returned by obx_last_error_code(). Where obx_last_error_code() may be a generic error like OBX_ERROR_STORAGE_GENERAL, this will give a further underlying and possibly platform-specific error code. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_last_error_clear (void)
 Clear the error state on the current thread; e.g. obx_last_error_code() will now return OBX_SUCCESS. Note that clearing the error state does not happen automatically; API calls set the error state when they produce an error, but do not clear it on success. See also: obx_last_error_pop() to retrieve the error state and clear it. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_last_error_set (obx_err code, obx_err secondary, const char *message)
 Set the last error code and test - reserved for internal use from generated code. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_modelobx_model (void)
 Create an (empty) data meta model which is to be consumed by obx_opt_model(). More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_free (OBX_model *model)
 Only call when not calling obx_store_open() (which will free it internally) More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_error_code (OBX_model *model)
 To minimise the amount of error handling code required when building a model, the first error is stored and can be obtained here. All the obx_model_XXX functions are null operations after the first model error has occurred. More...
 
OBX_C_API const char * obx_model_error_message (OBX_model *model)
 To minimise the amount of error handling code required when building a model, the first error is stored and can be obtained here. All the obx_model_XXX functions are null operations after the first model error has occurred. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_entity (OBX_model *model, const char *name, obx_schema_id entity_id, obx_uid entity_uid)
 Starts the definition of a new entity type for the meta data model. After this, call obx_model_property() to add properties to the entity type. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_entity_flags (OBX_model *model, uint32_t flags)
 Refine the definition of the entity declared by the most recent obx_model_entity() call, specifying flags. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_property (OBX_model *model, const char *name, OBXPropertyType type, obx_schema_id property_id, obx_uid property_uid)
 Starts the definition of a new property for the entity type of the last obx_model_entity() call. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_property_flags (OBX_model *model, uint32_t flags)
 Refine the definition of the property declared by the most recent obx_model_property() call, specifying flags. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_property_relation (OBX_model *model, const char *target_entity, obx_schema_id index_id, obx_uid index_uid)
 Refine the definition of the property declared by the most recent obx_model_property() call, declaring it a relation. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_property_index_id (OBX_model *model, obx_schema_id index_id, obx_uid index_uid)
 Refine the definition of the property declared by the most recent obx_model_property() call, adding an index. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_relation (OBX_model *model, obx_schema_id relation_id, obx_uid relation_uid, obx_schema_id target_id, obx_uid target_uid)
 Add a standalone relation between the active entity and the target entity to the model. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_model_last_entity_id (OBX_model *, obx_schema_id entity_id, obx_uid entity_uid)
 Set the highest ever known entity id in the model. Should always be equal to or higher than the last entity id of the previous version of the model. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_model_last_index_id (OBX_model *model, obx_schema_id index_id, obx_uid index_uid)
 Set the highest ever known index id in the model. Should always be equal to or higher than the last index id of the previous version of the model. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_model_last_relation_id (OBX_model *model, obx_schema_id relation_id, obx_uid relation_uid)
 Set the highest every known relation id in the model. Should always be equal to or higher than the last relation id of the previous version of the model. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_entity_last_property_id (OBX_model *model, obx_schema_id property_id, obx_uid property_uid)
 Set the highest ever known property id in the entity. Should always be equal to or higher than the last property id of the previous version of the entity. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_bytes_lazy_get (OBX_bytes_lazy *bytes, const void **out_bytes, size_t *out_size)
 Get the actual bytes from the given OBX_bytes_lazy. Because of the potential lazy creation of bytes, the given bytes are not const as it may be resolved internally. For the same reason, this function is not thread-safe, at least for the first call on a OBX_bytes_lazy instance. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_bytes_lazy_free (OBX_bytes_lazy *bytes)
 Releases any resources associated with the given OBX_bytes_lazy. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_store_optionsobx_opt ()
 Create a default set of store options. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_directory (OBX_store_options *opt, const char *dir)
 Set the store directory on the options. The default is "objectbox". Use prefix "memory:" to open an in-memory database, e.g. "memory:myApp" (see docs for details). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb (OBX_store_options *opt, uint64_t size_in_kb)
 Set the maximum db size on the options. The default is 1Gb. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_data_size_in_kb (OBX_store_options *opt, uint64_t size_in_kb)
 Data size tracking is more involved than DB size tracking, e.g. it stores an internal counter. Thus only use it if a stricter, more accurate limit is required (it's off by default). It tracks the size of actual data bytes of objects (system and metadata is not considered). On the upside, reaching the data limit still allows data to be removed (assuming DB limit is not reached). Max data and DB sizes can be combined; data size must be below the DB size. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_file_mode (OBX_store_options *opt, unsigned int file_mode)
 Set the file mode on the options. The default is 0644 (unix-style). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_readers (OBX_store_options *opt, unsigned int max_readers)
 Set the maximum number of readers (related to read transactions) on the given options. "Readers" are an finite resource for which we need to define a maximum number upfront. The default value is enough for most apps and usually you can ignore it completely. However, if you get the OBX_ERROR_MAX_READERS_EXCEEDED error, you should verify your threading. For each thread, ObjectBox uses multiple readers. Their number (per thread) depends on number of types, relations, and usage patterns. Thus, if you are working with many threads (e.g. in a server-like scenario), it can make sense to increase the maximum number of readers. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_no_reader_thread_locals (OBX_store_options *opt, bool flag)
 Disables the usage of thread locals for "readers" related to read transactions. This can make sense if you are using a lot of threads that are kept alive. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model (OBX_store_options *opt, OBX_model *model)
 Set the model on the options. The default is no model. NOTE: the model is always freed by this function, including when an error occurs. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model_bytes (OBX_store_options *opt, const void *bytes, size_t size)
 Set the model on the options copying the given bytes. The default is no model. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model_bytes_direct (OBX_store_options *opt, const void *bytes, size_t size)
 Like obx_opt_model_bytes BUT WITHOUT copying the given bytes. Thus, you must keep the bytes available until after the store is created. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_validate_on_open_pages (OBX_store_options *opt, size_t page_limit, uint32_t flags)
 When the DB is opened initially, ObjectBox can do a consistency check on the given amount of pages. Reliable file systems already guarantee consistency, so this is primarily meant to deal with unreliable OSes, file systems, or hardware. Thus, usually a low number (e.g. 1-20) is sufficient and does not impact startup performance significantly. To completely disable this you can pass 0, but we recommend a setting of at least 1. Note: ObjectBox builds upon ACID storage, which guarantees consistency given that the file system is working correctly (in particular fsync). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_validate_on_open_kv (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t flags)
 When the DB is opened initially, ObjectBox can do a validation over the key/value pairs to check, for example, whether they're consistent towards our internal specification. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_put_padding_mode (OBX_store_options *opt, OBXPutPaddingMode mode)
 Don't touch unless you know exactly what you are doing: Advanced setting typically meant for language bindings (not end users). See OBXPutPaddingMode description. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_read_schema (OBX_store_options *opt, bool value)
 Advanced setting meant only for special scenarios: setting to false causes opening the database in a limited, schema-less mode. If you don't know what this means exactly: ignore this flag. Defaults to true. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_use_previous_commit (OBX_store_options *opt, bool value)
 Advanced setting recommended to be used together with read-only mode to ensure no data is lost. Ignores the latest data snapshot (committed transaction state) and uses the previous snapshot instead. When used with care (e.g. backup the DB files first), this option may also recover data removed by the latest transaction. Defaults to false. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_read_only (OBX_store_options *opt, bool value)
 Open store in read-only mode: no schema update, no write transactions. Defaults to false. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_debug_flags (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t flags)
 Configure debug flags (OBXDebugFlags); e.g. to influence logging. Defaults to NONE. Combine multiple flags using bitwise OR. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_add_debug_flags (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t flags)
 Adds debug flags (OBXDebugFlags) to potentially existing ones. Combine multiple flags using bitwise OR. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_queue_length (OBX_store_options *opt, size_t value)
 Maximum of async elements in the queue before new elements will be rejected. Hitting this limit usually hints that async processing cannot keep up; data is produced at a faster rate than it can be persisted in the background. In that case, increasing this value is not the only alternative; other values might also optimize throughput. For example, increasing maxInTxDurationMicros may help too. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_throttle_at_queue_length (OBX_store_options *opt, size_t value)
 Producers (AsyncTx submitter) is throttled when the queue size hits this. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_throttle_micros (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t value)
 Sleeping time for throttled producers on each submission. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_in_tx_duration (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t micros)
 Maximum duration spent in a transaction before AsyncQ enforces a commit. This becomes relevant if the queue is constantly populated at a high rate. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_in_tx_operations (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t value)
 Maximum operations performed in a transaction before AsyncQ enforces a commit. This becomes relevant if the queue is constantly populated at a high rate. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t delay_micros)
 Before the AsyncQ is triggered by a new element in queue to starts a new run, it delays actually starting the transaction by this value. This gives a newly starting producer some time to produce more than one a single operation before AsyncQ starts. Note: this value should typically be low to keep latency low and prevent accumulating too much operations. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay4 (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t delay_micros, uint32_t delay2_micros, size_t min_queue_length_for_delay2)
 Before the AsyncQ is triggered by a new element in queue to starts a new run, it delays actually starting the transaction by this value. This gives a newly starting producer some time to produce more than one a single operation before AsyncQ starts. Note: this value should typically be low to keep latency low and prevent accumulating too much operations. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t delay_micros)
 Similar to preTxDelay but after a transaction was committed. One of the purposes is to give other transactions some time to execute. In combination with preTxDelay this can prolong non-TX batching time if only a few operations are around. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay5 (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t delay_micros, uint32_t delay2_micros, size_t min_queue_length_for_delay2, bool subtract_processing_time)
 Similar to preTxDelay but after a transaction was committed. One of the purposes is to give other transactions some time to execute. In combination with preTxDelay this can prolong non-TX batching time if only a few operations are around. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_minor_refill_threshold (OBX_store_options *opt, size_t queue_length)
 Numbers of operations below this value are considered "minor refills". More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_minor_refill_max_count (OBX_store_options *opt, uint32_t value)
 If non-zero, this allows "minor refills" with small batches that came in (off by default). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_tx_pool_size (OBX_store_options *opt, size_t value)
 Default value: 10000, set to 0 to deactivate pooling. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_object_bytes_max_cache_size (OBX_store_options *opt, uint64_t value)
 Total cache size; default: ~ 0.5 MB. More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_object_bytes_max_size_to_cache (OBX_store_options *opt, uint64_t value)
 Maximal size for an object to be cached (only cache smaller ones) More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_log_callback (OBX_store_options *opt, obx_log_callback *callback, void *user_data)
 Registers a log callback, which is called for a selection of log events. Note: this does not replace the default logging, which is much more extensive (at least at this point). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_backup_restore (OBX_store_options *opt, const char *backup_file, uint32_t flags)
 Before opening the database, this options instructs to restore the database content from the given backup file. Note: backup is a server-only feature. By default, actually restoring the backup is only performed if no database already exists (database does not contain data). More...
 
OBX_C_API const char * obx_opt_get_directory (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Gets the option for "directory"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_directory(). The returned value must not be modified and is only valid for the lifetime of the options or until the value is changed. More...
 
OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_opt_get_max_db_size_in_kb (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Gets the option for "max DB size"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb(). More...
 
OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_opt_get_max_data_size_in_kb (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Gets the option for "max data size"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_max_data_size_in_kb(). More...
 
OBX_C_API uint32_t obx_opt_get_debug_flags (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Gets the option for "debug flags"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_debug_flags(). More...
 
OBX_C_API void obx_opt_free (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Free the options. Note: Only free unused options, obx_store_open() frees the options internally. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_open (OBX_store_options *opt)
 Opens (creates) a "store", which represents an ObjectBox database instance in a given directory. The store is an entry point to data access APIs such as box (obx_box_*), query (obx_qb_* and obx_query_*), and transaction (obx_txn_*). It's possible to open multiple stores in different directories, e.g. at the same time. See also obx_store_close() to close a previously opened store. Note: the given options are always freed by this function, including when an error occurs. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_store_is_open (const char *path)
 Check if an open store was found for the given path (i.e. opened before and not yet closed). More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_attach (const char *path)
 Attach to a previously opened store matching the path of the DB directory, which was used for opening the store. The returned store is a new instance (e.g. different pointer value) and must also be closed via obx_store_close(). The actual underlying store is only closed when the last store OBX_store instance is closed. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_attach_id (uint64_t store_id)
 Attach to a previously opened store matching the given store ID. The returned store is a new instance (e.g. different pointer value) and must also be closed via obx_store_close(). The actual underlying store is only closed when the last store OBX_store instance is closed. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_attach_or_open (OBX_store_options *opt, bool check_matching_options, bool *out_attached)
 Combines the functionality of obx_store_attach() and obx_store_open() in a thread-safe way. More...
 
OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_store_id (OBX_store *store)
 Store IDs can be used to attach to a store later. The IDs are stable and unique during the lifetime of the process. E.g. these IDs can be shared across threads efficiently and can serve a similar purpose as weak pointers do. More...
 
OBX_C_API uint32_t obx_store_type_id (OBX_store *store)
 Gives the store type ID for the given store. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_clone (OBX_store *store)
 Clone a previously opened store; while a store instance is usable from multiple threads, situations may exist in which cloning a store simplifies the overall lifecycle. E.g. when a store is used for multiple threads and it may only be fully released once the last thread completes. The returned store is a new instance (e.g. different pointer value) and must also be closed via obx_store_close(). The actual underlying store is only closed when the last store OBX_store instance is closed. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_storeobx_store_wrap (void *core_store)
 For stores created outside of this C API, e.g. via C++ or Java, this is how you can use it via C too. Like this, it is OK to use the same store instance (same database) from multiple languages in parallel. Note: the store's life time will still be managed outside of the C API; thus ensure that store is not closed while calling any C function on it. Once you are done with the C specific OBX_store, call obx_store_close() to free any C related resources. This, however, will not close the "core store". More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_schema_id obx_store_entity_id (OBX_store *store, const char *entity_name)
 Look for an entity with the given name in the model and return its Entity ID. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_schema_id obx_store_entity_property_id (OBX_store *store, obx_schema_id entity_id, const char *property_name)
 Return the property id from the property name or 0 if the name is not found. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_store_await_async_completion (OBX_store *store)
 Await for all (including future) async submissions to be completed (the async queue becomes empty). More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_store_await_async_submitted (OBX_store *store)
 Await async operations that have been submitted up to this point to be completed (the async queue may still contain elements). More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_back_up_to_file (OBX_store *store, const char *backup_file, uint32_t backup_flags)
 Backs up the store DB to the given backup-file, using the given flags. Note: backup is a server-only feature. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_debug_flags (OBX_store *store, uint32_t flags)
 Configure debug logging. More...
 
OBX_C_API bool obx_store_opened_with_previous_commit (OBX_store *store)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_prepare_to_close (OBX_store *store)
 Prepares the store to close by setting its internal state to "closing". Functions relying on the store will result in OBX_ERROR_SHUTTING_DOWN status once closing is initiated. Unlike obx_store_close(), this method will return immediately and does not free resources just yet. This is typically used in a multi-threaded context to allow an orderly shutdown in stages which go through a "not accepting new requests" state. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_close (OBX_store *store)
 Closes a previously opened store and thus freeing all resources associated with the store. More...
 
OBX_C_API int obx_store_type_id_register_default (uint32_t storeTypeId)
 Registers the default DB type, which is used if no other types matched a path prefix. More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_txnobx_txn_write (OBX_store *store)
 Create a write transaction (read and write). Transaction creation can be nested (recursive), however only the outermost transaction is relevant on the DB level. Once you are done tithe the transaction, you must call obx_txn_success() or obx_txn_close(). More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_txnobx_txn_read (OBX_store *store)
 Create a read transaction (read only). Transaction creation can be nested (recursive), however only the outermost transaction is relevant on the DB level. Once you are done tithe the transaction, you must call obx_txn_close(). More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_success (OBX_txn *txn)
 "Finish" this write transaction successfully and close it, performing a commit if this is the top level transaction and all inner transactions (if any) were also successful (obx_txn_success() was called on them). Because this also closes the given transaction along with all resources, the given OBX_txn pointer becomes invalid. Thus, the OBX_txn pointer must not be used afterwards; do not even call obx_txn_close(). More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_close (OBX_txn *txn)
 Close the transaction (read or write) and free all of its resources; the given OBX_txn pointer must not be used afterwards. If the given transaction is a write transaction, it is aborted (not committed) right away (without waiting for the top level transaction). If an error is returned (e.g., a commit failed because DB is full), you can assume that the transaction was closed. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_abort (OBX_txn *txn)
 Note: At the moment, you typically want to use only obx_txn_close() instead. Abort the underlying transaction immediately and thus frees DB resources. Only obx_txn_close() is allowed to be called on the transaction after calling this. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_data_size (OBX_txn *txn, uint64_t *out_committed_size, int64_t *out_size_change)
 
OBX_C_API OBX_cursorobx_cursor (OBX_txn *txn, obx_schema_id entity_id)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_close (OBX_cursor *cursor)
 
OBX_C_API obx_id obx_cursor_id_for_put (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id_or_zero)
 Call this when putting an object to generate/prepare an ID for it. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_put (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void *data, size_t size)
 Puts the given object data using the given ID. A "put" in ObjectBox follows "insert or update" semantics; New objects (no pre-existing object for given ID) are inserted while existing objects are replaced/updated. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_put4 (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void *data, size_t size, OBXPutMode mode)
 Like put obx_cursor_put(), but takes an additional parameter (4th parameter) for choosing a put mode. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_put_new (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void *data, size_t size)
 An optimized version of obx_cursor_put() if you can ensure that the given ID is not used yet. Typically used right after getting a new ID via obx_cursor_id_for_put(). WARNING: using this incorrectly (an object with the given ID already exists) may result in inconsistent data (e.g. indexes do not get updated). More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_insert (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void *data, size_t size)
 Convenience for obx_cursor_put4() with OBXPutMode_INSERT. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_update (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void *data, size_t size)
 Convenience for obx_cursor_put4() with OBXPutMode_UPDATE. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_id obx_cursor_put_object (OBX_cursor *cursor, void *data, size_t size)
 FB ID slot must be present; new entities must prepare the slot using the special value OBX_ID_NEW. Alternatively, you may also pass 0 to indicate a new entity if you are aware that FlatBuffers builders typically skip zero values by default. Thus, you have to "force" writing the zero in FlatBuffers. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_id obx_cursor_put_object4 (OBX_cursor *cursor, void *data, size_t size, OBXPutMode mode)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_get (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id, const void **data, size_t *size)
 
OBX_C_API OBX_bytes_arrayobx_cursor_get_all (OBX_cursor *cursor)
 Get all objects as bytes. For larger quantities, it's recommended to iterate using obx_cursor_first and obx_cursor_next. However, if the calling overhead is high (e.g., for language bindings), this method helps. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_first (OBX_cursor *cursor, const void **data, size_t *size)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_next (OBX_cursor *cursor, const void **data, size_t *size)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_seek (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id)

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_remove (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id id)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_remove_all (OBX_cursor *cursor)
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_count (OBX_cursor *cursor, uint64_t *count)
 Count the number of available objects. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_count_max (OBX_cursor *cursor, uint64_t max_count, uint64_t *out_count)
 Count the number of available objects up to the specified maximum. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_is_empty (OBX_cursor *cursor, bool *out_is_empty)
 Return true if there is no object available (false if at least one object is available) More...
 
OBX_C_API OBX_bytes_arrayobx_cursor_backlinks (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_schema_id entity_id, obx_schema_id property_id, obx_id id)

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_seek_first_id (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id *out_id)
 Gets the first object ID or zero if there was no object. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_cursor_seek_next_id (OBX_cursor *cursor, obx_id *out_id)
 Gets the next object ID or zero if there was no next object. More...

 A "low-level" put operation for a tree leaf using given raw FlatBuffer bytes. Any non-existing branches and meta nodes are put on the fly if an optional meta-leaf FlatBuffers is given. A typical usage pattern is to first try without the meta-leaf, and if it does not work, create the meta-leaf and call again with the meta leaf. This approach takes into account that meta-leaves typically exist, and thus no resources are wasted for meta-leaf creation if it's not required. An advantage of using "raw" operations is that custom properties can be passed in the FlatBuffers. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_cursor_consolidate_node_conflicts (OBX_tree_cursor *cursor, size_t *out_consolidated_count)

 Like obx_tree_cursor_put_raw(), but asynchronous. More...
 
OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_async_consolidate_node_conflicts (OBX_tree *tree)

Macro Definition Documentation

◆ OBX_C_API

#define OBX_C_API

◆ OBX_ERROR_ALLOCATION

#define OBX_ERROR_ALLOCATION   10003

A resource could not be allocated. This usually indicates a severe system status, e.g running out of memory.

◆ OBX_ERROR_BACKUP_FILE_INVALID

#define OBX_ERROR_BACKUP_FILE_INVALID   10008

A given backup file has invalid content and thus cannot be restored.

A constraint violation occurred that did not fit in a more specific (constraint violation) category.

◆ OBX_ERROR_DB_FULL

#define OBX_ERROR_DB_FULL   10101

The database has reached its given storage limit. Note that is limit is user defined and thus you can set it as an option when opening a database via obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb(). Further note that this limit is in place to protect the system from unreasonable storage consumption due to unexpected usage and user errors (e.g. inserting data in an infinite loop).

◆ OBX_ERROR_DB_GENERAL

#define OBX_ERROR_DB_GENERAL   10198

A general database related error occurred that did not fit in a more specific category. No secondary error code is available.

◆ OBX_ERROR_FEATURE_NOT_AVAILABLE

#define OBX_ERROR_FEATURE_NOT_AVAILABLE   10005

Tried to use a special feature that is not part of this lib edition. The ObjectBox library comes in different flavors, and may not contain all features.

◆ OBX_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPT

#define OBX_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPT   10502

DB file has errors, e.g. illegal values or structural inconsistencies were detected.

◆ OBX_ERROR_FILE_PAGES_CORRUPT

#define OBX_ERROR_FILE_PAGES_CORRUPT   10503

DB file has errors related to pages, e.g. bad page refs outside of the file.

◆ OBX_ERROR_GENERAL

#define OBX_ERROR_GENERAL   10098

A general error occurred that did not fit in a more specific category.

◆ OBX_ERROR_ID_ALREADY_EXISTS

#define OBX_ERROR_ID_ALREADY_EXISTS   10210

A given ID already existed, e.g. when trying to insert with a pre-existing ID. Should happen only with user assigned IDs.

◆ OBX_ERROR_ID_NOT_FOUND

#define OBX_ERROR_ID_NOT_FOUND   10211

A given ID was not found (does not exist), e.g. when trying to update an object that does not exist. Typically happens when an object was removed before while trying to update it.

◆ OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT

#define OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT   10002

The passed arguments were illegal; e.g. passed null to a non-null argument.

◆ OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE

#define OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE   10001

A request does not make sense in the current state. For example, doing actions on a closed object.

#define OBX_ERROR_IO   10007

An I/O operation failed, e.g. a file was not found, could not be written or read.

◆ OBX_ERROR_MAX_DATA_SIZE_EXCEEDED

#define OBX_ERROR_MAX_DATA_SIZE_EXCEEDED   10104

◆ OBX_ERROR_MAX_READERS_EXCEEDED

#define OBX_ERROR_MAX_READERS_EXCEEDED   10102

Thrown when the maximum of readers (read transactions) was exceeded. Verify that you run a reasonable amount of threads only. If you actually intend to work with a very high number of threads (>100), consider increasing the number of maximum readers via obx_opt_max_readers().

◆ OBX_ERROR_NO_ERROR_INFO

#define OBX_ERROR_NO_ERROR_INFO   10097

An error occurred but error information could not be extracted. This falls in the "should not happen" category and should be very rare; please report if you ever encounter this in a reproducible fashion.

◆ OBX_ERROR_NON_UNIQUE_RESULT

#define OBX_ERROR_NON_UNIQUE_RESULT   10202

A result was supposed to be unique, but was not. E.g. a query results in multiple results where one one is expected.

◆ OBX_ERROR_NUMERIC_OVERFLOW

#define OBX_ERROR_NUMERIC_OVERFLOW   10004

Typedef Documentation

◆ OBX_admin

typedef struct OBX_admin OBX_admin

The admin web UI is an optional feature consisting of an embedded http server, that comes with an object (data) browser and an administration UI.

◆ OBX_admin_options

Options to configure the OBX_admin to be created.

◆ OBX_async

typedef struct OBX_async OBX_async

Created by obx_box_async, used for async operations like obx_async_put.

◆ OBX_box

typedef struct OBX_box OBX_box

A Box offers database operations for objects of a specific type.

Given an OBX_store, obx_box() gives you Box instances to interact with object data (e.g. get and put operations). A Box instance is associated with a specific object type (data class) and gives you a high level API to interact with data objects of that type.

Box operations automatically start an implicit transaction when accessing the database. And because transactions offered by this C API are always reentrant, you can set your own transaction boundary using obx_txn_read() or obx_txn_write(). Using these explicit transactions is very much encouraged for calling multiple write operations that logically belong together for better consistency (ACID) and performance.

Box instances are thread-safe and cached internally (see obx_box()).

◆ OBX_bytes

typedef struct OBX_bytes OBX_bytes

Bytes struct is an input/output wrapper typically used for a single object data (represented as FlatBuffers).

Callback for logging, which can be provided to store creation via options.

◆ OBX_model

typedef struct OBX_model OBX_model

Model represents a database schema and must be provided when opening the store. Model initialization is usually done by language bindings, which automatically build the model based on parsed source code (for examples, see ObjectBox Go or Swift, which also use this C API).

For manual creation, these are the basic steps:

◆ OBX_observer

typedef struct OBX_observer OBX_observer

Observers are called back when data has changed in the database. See obx_observe(), or obx_observe_single_type() to listen to a changes that affect a single entity type.

◆ obx_observer

typedef void obx_observer(const obx_schema_id *type_ids, size_t type_ids_count, void *user_data)

Callback for obx_observe()

Parameters

◆ obx_observer_single_type

typedef void obx_observer_single_type(void *user_data)

◆ obx_qb_cond

typedef int obx_qb_cond

Query Builder condition identifier.

  • returned by condition creating functions,
  • used to combine conditions with any/all, thus building more complex conditions

◆ OBX_query

typedef struct OBX_query OBX_query

Query holds the information necessary to execute a database query. It's prepared by QueryBuilder and may be reused any number of times. It also supports parametrization before executing, further improving the reusability. Query is NOT thread safe and must only be used from a single thread at the same time. If you prefer to avoid locks, you may want to create clonse using obx_query_clone().

◆ OBX_query_builder

You use QueryBuilder to specify criteria and create a Query which actually executes the query and returns matching objects.

◆ OBX_query_prop

PropertyQuery - getting a single property instead of whole objects. Also provides aggregation over properties.

◆ obx_schema_id

typedef uint32_t obx_schema_id

Schema entity & property identifiers.

◆ obx_status_callback

typedef void obx_status_callback(obx_err status, void *user_data)

Callback for simple async functions that only deliver a obx_err status.

Parameters
statusThe result status of the async operation
user_dataThe data initially passed to the async function call is passed back.

◆ OBX_store

typedef struct OBX_store OBX_store

A ObjectBox store represents a database storing data in a given directory on a local file system or in-memory using "memory:" directory prefix.

Once opened using obx_store_open(), it's an entry point to data access APIs such as box, query, cursor, transaction. After your work is done, you must close obx_store_close() to safely release all the handles and avoid data loss.

It's possible open multiple stores in different directories.

◆ OBX_store_options

Store options customize the behavior of ObjectBox before opening a store. Options can't be changed once the store is open but of course you can close the store and open it again with the changed options. Some of the notable options are obx_opt_directory() and obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb().

◆ OBX_string_array

String array struct is an input/output wrapper for an array of character strings.

◆ OBX_tree

typedef struct OBX_tree OBX_tree

Top level tree API representing a tree structure/schema associated with a store.

Data is accessed via "tree cursors" that can be created using obx_tree_cursor().

◆ obx_tree_async_put_callback

typedef void obx_tree_async_put_callback(obx_err status, obx_id id, void *user_data)

Callback for obx_tree_async_put_raw().

Note
If the given status is an error, you can use functions like obx_last_error_message() to gather more info during this callback (error state is thread bound and the callback uses an internal thread).
Parameters
statusThe result status of the async operation
idIf the operation was successful, the ID of the leaf, which was put (otherwise zero).
user_dataThe data initially passed to the async function call is passed back.

◆ OBX_tree_cursor

◆ OBX_tree_leaves_info

Extended information about leaf nodes.

◆ OBX_tree_options

Structural/behavioral options for a tree passed during tree creation.

◆ OBX_txn

typedef struct OBX_txn OBX_txn

Transaction provides the mean to use explicit database transactions, grouping several operations into a single unit of work that either executes completely or not at all. If you are looking for a more detailed introduction to transactions in general, please consult other resources, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Database_transaction.

You may not notice it, but almost all interactions with ObjectBox involve transactions. For example, if you call obx_box_put() a write transaction is used. Also if you call obx_box_count(), a read transaction is used. All of this is done under the hood and transparent to you. However, there are situations where an explicit read transaction is necessary, e.g. obx_box_get(). Also, it’s usually worth learning transaction basics to make your app more consistent and efficient, especially for writes.

◆ obx_uid

typedef uint64_t obx_uid

Universal identifier used in schema for entities & properties.

◆ OBX_weak_store

A "weak store" is a weakly referenced store.

While you can "attach" to a store multiple time; each instance will keep the store open. Alternatively for "secondary stores" (e.g. used in a background thread), a weakly referenced store does not keep the store open by itself. Only strong references (e.g. the store created and attached stores) do. A weak store needs to be "locked" to get a regular store (strong reference) in order to actually use it.

Enumeration Type Documentation

◆ OBXBackupFlags

Backup flags control how the store creates backup files. E.g. when you want "deterministic" file content, you can exclude timestamp and salt.

Enumerator
OBXBackupFlags_ExcludeTimestamp 

Do not include a timestamp in the backup file (time when the backup file is generated).

OBXBackupFlags_ExcludeSalt 

Do not include a random salt in the backup file.

◆ OBXBackupRestoreFlags

Backup restore flags control how backups are restored to the database.

Enumerator
OBXBackupRestoreFlags_OverwriteExistingData 

Overwrite any existing database with the content of the backup file.

◆ OBXDebugFlags

Debug flags typically enable additional "debug logging" that can be helpful to better understand what is going on internally. These are intended for the development process only; typically one does not enable them for releases.

Enumerator
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_TRANSACTIONS_READ 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_TRANSACTIONS_WRITE 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_QUERIES 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_QUERY_PARAMETERS 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_ASYNC_QUEUE 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_CACHE_HITS 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_CACHE_ALL 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_TREE 
OBXDebugFlags_LOG_EXCEPTION_STACK_TRACE 

For a limited number of error conditions, this will try to print stack traces. Note: this is Linux-only, experimental, and has several limitations: The usefulness of these stack traces depends on several factors and might not be helpful at all.

OBXDebugFlags_RUN_THREADING_SELF_TEST 

Run a quick self-test to verify basic threading; somewhat paranoia to check the platform and the library setup.

◆ OBXEntityFlags

Bit-flags defining the behavior of entities. Note: Numbers indicate the bit position.

Enumerator
OBXEntityFlags_SYNC_ENABLED 

Enable "data synchronization" for this entity type: objects will be synced with other stores over the network. It's possible to have local-only (non-synced) types and synced types in the same store (schema/data model).

OBXEntityFlags_SHARED_GLOBAL_IDS 

Makes object IDs for a synced types (SYNC_ENABLED is set) global. By default (not using this flag), the 64 bit object IDs have a local scope and are not unique globally. This flag tells ObjectBox to treat object IDs globally and thus no ID mapping (local <-> global) is performed. Often this is used with assignable IDs (ID_SELF_ASSIGNABLE property flag is set) and some special ID scheme. Note: typically you won't do this with automatically assigned IDs, set by the local ObjectBox store. Two devices would likely overwrite each other's object during sync as object IDs are prone to collide. It might be OK if you can somehow ensure that only a single device will create new IDs.

◆ OBXFeature

enum OBXFeature
Enumerator
OBXFeature_ResultArray 

Functions that are returning multiple results (e.g. multiple objects) can be only used if this is available. This is only available for 64-bit OSes and is the opposite of "chunked mode", which forces to consume results in chunks (e.g. one by one). Since chunked mode consumes a bit less RAM, ResultArray style functions are typically only preferable if there's an additional overhead per call, e.g. caused by a higher level language abstraction like CGo.

OBXFeature_TimeSeries 

TimeSeries support (date/date-nano companion ID and other time-series functionality).

OBXFeature_Sync 

Sync client availability. Visit https://objectbox.io/sync for more details.

OBXOrderFlags_CASE_SENSITIVE 

Sort upper case letters (e.g. "Z") before lower case letters (e.g. "a"). If not specified, the default is case insensitive for ASCII characters.

OBXOrderFlags_UNSIGNED 

For scalars only: change the comparison to unsigned (default is signed).

OBXOrderFlags_NULLS_LAST 

null values will be put last. If not specified, by default null values will be put first.

OBXOrderFlags_NULLS_ZERO 

null values should be treated equal to zero (scalars only).

◆ OBXPropertyFlags

Bit-flags defining the behavior of properties. Note: Numbers indicate the bit position.

Enumerator
OBXPropertyFlags_ID 

64 bit long property (internally unsigned) representing the ID of the entity. May be combined with: NON_PRIMITIVE_TYPE, ID_MONOTONIC_SEQUENCE, ID_SELF_ASSIGNABLE.

OBXPropertyFlags_NON_PRIMITIVE_TYPE 

On languages like Java, a non-primitive type is used (aka wrapper types, allowing null)

OBXPropertyFlags_NOT_NULL 

Unused yet.

OBXPropertyFlags_INDEXED 
OBXPropertyFlags_RESERVED 

Unused yet.

Virtual properties may not have a dedicated field in their entity class, e.g. target IDs of to-one relations.

OBXPropertyFlags_INDEX_HASH 

Index uses a 32 bit hash instead of the value 32 bits is shorter on disk, runs well on 32 bit systems, and should be OK even with a few collisions.

OBXPropertyFlags_INDEX_HASH64 

Index uses a 64 bit hash instead of the value recommended mostly for 64 bit machines with values longer >200 bytes; small values are faster with a 32 bit hash.

OBXPropertyFlags_UNSIGNED 

The actual type of the variable is unsigned (used in combination with numeric OBXPropertyType_*). While our default are signed ints, queries & indexes need do know signing info. Note: Don't combine with ID (IDs are always unsigned internally).

OBXPropertyFlags_ID_COMPANION 

By defining an ID companion property, a special ID encoding scheme is activated involving this property.

For Time Series IDs, a companion property of type Date or DateNano represents the exact timestamp.

OBXPropertyFlags_UNIQUE_ON_CONFLICT_REPLACE 

Unique on-conflict strategy: the object being put replaces any existing conflicting object (deletes it).

OBXPropertyFlags_EXPIRATION_TIME 

If a date property has this flag (max. one per entity type), the date value specifies the time by which the object expires, at which point it MAY be removed (deleted), which can be triggered by an API call.

◆ OBXPutMode

enum OBXPutMode
Enumerator
OBXPutMode_PUT 

Standard put ("insert or update")

OBXPutMode_INSERT 

Put succeeds only if the entity does not exist yet.

OBXPutMode_UPDATE 

Put succeeds only if the entity already exist.

◆ OBXPutPaddingMode

Defines a padding mode for putting data bytes. Depending on how that data is created, this mode may optimize data handling by avoiding copying memory. Internal background: data buffers used by put operations are required to have a size divisible by 4 for an efficient data layout.

Enumerator
OBXPutPaddingMode_PaddingAutomatic 

Adds a padding when needed (may require a memory copy): this is the safe option and also the default. The extra memory copy may impact performance, however this is usually not noticeable.

OBXPutPaddingMode_PaddingAllowedByBuffer 

Indicates that data buffers are safe to be extended for padding (adding up to 3 bytes to size is OK). Typically, it depends on the used FlatBuffers builder; e.g. the official C++ seems to ensure it, but flatcc (3rd party implementation for plain C) may not.

OBXPutPaddingMode_PaddingByCaller 

The caller ensures that all data bytes are already padded. ObjectBox will verify the buffer size and returns an error if it's not divisible by 4.

◆ OBXStoreTypeId

Enumerator
OBXStoreTypeId_LMDB 

Default store type: persistent data storage (based on LMDB)

If true, debug logs are always disabled for this tree regardless of the store's debug flags.

OBXTreeOptionFlags_DebugLogsEnable 

If true, debug logs are always enabled for this tree regardless of the store's debug flags.

OBXTreeOptionFlags_EnforceUniquePath 

By default, a path such as "a/b/c" can address a branch and a leaf at the same time. E.g. under the common parent path "a/b", a branch "c" and a "c" leaf may exist. To disable this, set this flag to true. This will enable an additional check when inserting new leafs and new branches for the existence of the other.

OBXTreeOptionFlags_AllowNonUniqueNodes 

In some scenarios, e.g. when using Sync, multiple node objects of the same type (e.g. branch or leaf) at the same path may exist temporarily. By enabling this flag, this is not considered an error situation. Instead, the first node is picked.

OBXTreeOptionFlags_DetectNonUniqueNodes 

Nodes described in AllowNonUniqueNodes will be automatically detected to consolidate them (manually).

OBXTreeOptionFlags_AutoConsolidateNonUniqueNodes 

Nodes described in AllowNonUniqueNodes will be automatically consolidated to make them unique. This consolidation happens e.g. on put/remove operations. Using this value implies DetectNonUniqueNodes.

◆ OBXValidateOnOpenKvFlags

Flags used to control key/value pairs validation options when opening the store. Note: this enum does not contain any actual values besides "None" yet; it's only used to future proof the API.

const void *  data,
size_t  size 
)

An optimized version of obx_cursor_put() if you can ensure that the given ID is not used yet. Typically used right after getting a new ID via obx_cursor_id_for_put(). WARNING: using this incorrectly (an object with the given ID already exists) may result in inconsistent data (e.g. indexes do not get updated).

Parameters
idnon-zero

◆ obx_cursor_put_object()

obx_id obx_cursor_put_object ( OBX_cursor cursor,
void *  data,
size_t  size 
)

FB ID slot must be present; new entities must prepare the slot using the special value OBX_ID_NEW. Alternatively, you may also pass 0 to indicate a new entity if you are aware that FlatBuffers builders typically skip zero values by default. Thus, you have to "force" writing the zero in FlatBuffers.

Parameters
dataobject data, non-const because the ID slot will be written (mutated) for new entites (see above)
Returns
id if the object could be put, or 0 in case of an error

Free the array struct.

◆ obx_last_error_clear()

OBX_C_API void obx_last_error_clear ( void  )

Clear the error state on the current thread; e.g. obx_last_error_code() will now return OBX_SUCCESS. Note that clearing the error state does not happen automatically; API calls set the error state when they produce an error, but do not clear it on success. See also: obx_last_error_pop() to retrieve the error state and clear it.

◆ obx_last_error_code()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_last_error_code ( void  )

The last error raised by an ObjectBox API call on the current thread, or OBX_SUCCESS if no error occurred yet. Note that API calls do not clear this error code (also true for this method). Thus, if you receive an error from this, it's usually a good idea to call obx_last_error_clear() to clear the error state (or use obx_last_error_pop()) for future API calls.

◆ obx_last_error_message()

OBX_C_API const char* obx_last_error_message ( void  )

The error message string attached to the error returned by obx_last_error_code(). Like obx_last_error_code(), this is bound to the current thread, and this call does not clear the error state. The buffer returned is valid only until the next call into ObjectBox.

◆ obx_last_error_pop()

OBX_C_API bool obx_last_error_pop ( obx_err out_error,
const char **  out_message 
)

Return the error status on the current thread and clear the error state. The buffer returned in out_message is valid only until the next call into ObjectBox.

Parameters
out_errorreceives the error code; optional: may be NULL
out_messagereceives the pointer to the error messages; optional: may be NULL
Returns
true if an error was pending

◆ obx_last_error_secondary()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_last_error_secondary ( void  )

The underlying error for the error returned by obx_last_error_code(). Where obx_last_error_code() may be a generic error like OBX_ERROR_STORAGE_GENERAL, this will give a further underlying and possibly platform-specific error code.

◆ obx_last_error_set()

OBX_C_API bool obx_last_error_set ( obx_err  code,
obx_err  secondary,
const char *  message 
)

Set the last error code and test - reserved for internal use from generated code.

◆ obx_model()

OBX_C_API OBX_model* obx_model ( void  )

Create an (empty) data meta model which is to be consumed by obx_opt_model().

Returns
NULL if the operation failed, see functions like obx_last_error_code() to get error details. Note that obx_model_* functions handle OBX_model NULL pointers (will indicate an error but not crash).

◆ obx_model_entity()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_entity ( OBX_model model,
const char *  name,
obx_schema_id  entity_id,
obx_uid  entity_uid

obx_schema_id  property_id,
obx_uid  property_uid 
)

◆ obx_model_error_code()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_model_error_code ( OBX_model model)

To minimise the amount of error handling code required when building a model, the first error is stored and can be obtained here. All the obx_model_XXX functions are null operations after the first model error has occurred.

Parameters

◆ obx_observe()

OBX_C_API OBX_observer* obx_observe ( OBX_store store,
obx_observer callback,
void *  user_data 
)

Create an observer (callback) to be notified about all data changes (for all object types). The callback is invoked right after a successful commit.

Threading note
The given callback is called on the thread issuing the commit for the data change, e.g. via obx_txn_success(). Future versions might change that to a background thread, so be careful with threading assumptions. Also, it's a usually good idea to make the callback return quickly to let the calling thread continue.
Attention
Currently, you can not call any data operations from inside the call back.
More accurately, no transaction may be strated. (This restriction may be removed in a later version.)
Parameters
user_dataany value you want to be forwarded to the given observer callback (usually some context info).
callbackpointer to be called when the observed data changes.
Returns
NULL if a illegal locking situation was detected, e.g. called from an observer itself or a timeout/deadlock was detected (OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE).

◆ obx_observe_single_type()

OBX_C_API OBX_observer* obx_observe_single_type ( OBX_store store,
obx_schema_id  type_id,
obx_observer_single_type callback,
void *  user_data 
)

Create an observer (callback) to be notified about data changes for a given object type. The callback is invoked right after a successful commit.

Note
If you intend to observe more than one type, it is more efficient to use obx_observe().
Threading note
The given callback is called on the thread issuing the commit for the data change, e.g. via obx_txn_success(). Future versions might change that to a background thread, so be careful with threading assumptions. Also, it's a usually good idea to make the callback return quickly to let the calling thread continue.
Attention
Currently, you can not call any data operations from inside the call back.
More accurately, no transaction may be started. (This restriction may be removed in a later version.)
Parameters
type_idID of the object type to be observer.
user_dataany value you want to be forwarded to the given observer callback (usually some context info).
callbackpointer to be called when the observed data changes.
Returns
NULL if a illegal locking situation was detected, e.g. called from an observer itself or a timeout/deadlock was detected (OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE).

◆ obx_observer_close()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_observer_close ( OBX_observer observer)

Free the memory used by the given observer and unsubscribe it from its box or query.

Returns
OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE if a illegal locking situation was detected, e.g. called from an observer itself or a timeout/deadlock was detected. In that case, the caller must try to close again in a valid situation not causing lock failures.

◆ obx_opt()

Create a default set of store options.

Returns
NULL on failure, a default set of options on success

◆ obx_opt_add_debug_flags()

◆ obx_opt_async_max_in_tx_operations()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_in_tx_operations ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  value 
)

Maximum operations performed in a transaction before AsyncQ enforces a commit. This becomes relevant if the queue is constantly populated at a high rate.

◆ obx_opt_async_max_queue_length()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_queue_length ( OBX_store_options opt,
size_t  value 
)

Maximum of async elements in the queue before new elements will be rejected. Hitting this limit usually hints that async processing cannot keep up; data is produced at a faster rate than it can be persisted in the background. In that case, increasing this value is not the only alternative; other values might also optimize throughput. For example, increasing maxInTxDurationMicros may help too.

◆ obx_opt_async_max_tx_pool_size()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_max_tx_pool_size ( OBX_store_options opt,
size_t  value 
)

◆ obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  delay_micros 
)

Similar to preTxDelay but after a transaction was committed. One of the purposes is to give other transactions some time to execute. In combination with preTxDelay this can prolong non-TX batching time if only a few operations are around.

◆ obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay5()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_post_txn_delay5 ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  delay_micros,
uint32_t  delay2_micros,
size_t  min_queue_length_for_delay2,
bool  subtract_processing_time 
)

Similar to preTxDelay but after a transaction was committed. One of the purposes is to give other transactions some time to execute. In combination with preTxDelay this can prolong non-TX batching time if only a few operations are around.

Parameters
subtract_processing_timeIf set, delay_micros is interpreted from the start of TX processing. In other words, the actual delay is delay_micros minus the TX processing time including the commit. This can make timings more accurate (e.g. when fixed batching interval are given).

◆ obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  delay_micros 
)

Before the AsyncQ is triggered by a new element in queue to starts a new run, it delays actually starting the transaction by this value. This gives a newly starting producer some time to produce more than one a single operation before AsyncQ starts. Note: this value should typically be low to keep latency low and prevent accumulating too much operations.

◆ obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay4()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_pre_txn_delay4 ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  delay_micros,
uint32_t  delay2_micros,
size_t  min_queue_length_for_delay2 
)

Before the AsyncQ is triggered by a new element in queue to starts a new run, it delays actually starting the transaction by this value. This gives a newly starting producer some time to produce more than one a single operation before AsyncQ starts. Note: this value should typically be low to keep latency low and prevent accumulating too much operations.

◆ obx_opt_async_throttle_at_queue_length()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_async_throttle_at_queue_length ( OBX_store_options opt,
size_t  value 
)

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_backup_restore ( OBX_store_options opt,
const char *  backup_file,
uint32_t  flags 
)

Before opening the database, this options instructs to restore the database content from the given backup file. Note: backup is a server-only feature. By default, actually restoring the backup is only performed if no database already exists (database does not contain data).

Parameters
flagsFor default behavior pass 0, or adjust defaults using OBXBackupRestoreFlags bit flags, e.g., to overwrite all existing data in the database.

◆ obx_opt_debug_flags()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_debug_flags ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  flags 
)

Configure debug flags (OBXDebugFlags); e.g. to influence logging. Defaults to NONE. Combine multiple flags using bitwise OR.

◆ obx_opt_directory()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_directory ( OBX_store_options opt,
const char *  dir

Gets the option for "debug flags"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_debug_flags().

Returns
0 if an error occurred, e.g. the given options were null.

◆ obx_opt_get_directory()

OBX_C_API const char* obx_opt_get_directory ( OBX_store_options opt)

Gets the option for "directory"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_directory(). The returned value must not be modified and is only valid for the lifetime of the options or until the value is changed.

Returns
null if an error occurred, e.g. the given options were null.

◆ obx_opt_get_max_data_size_in_kb()

OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_opt_get_max_data_size_in_kb ( OBX_store_options opt)

Gets the option for "max data size"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_max_data_size_in_kb().

Returns
0 if an error occurred, e.g. the given options were null.

◆ obx_opt_get_max_db_size_in_kb()

OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_opt_get_max_db_size_in_kb ( OBX_store_options opt)

Gets the option for "max DB size"; this is either the default, or, the value set by obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb().

Returns
0 if an error occurred, e.g. the given options were null.

◆ obx_opt_log_callback()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_log_callback ( OBX_store_options opt,
obx_log_callback callback,
void *  user_data 
)

Registers a log callback, which is called for a selection of log events. Note: this does not replace the default logging, which is much more extensive (at least at this point).

◆ obx_opt_max_data_size_in_kb()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_data_size_in_kb ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint64_t  size_in_kb 
)

Data size tracking is more involved than DB size tracking, e.g. it stores an internal counter. Thus only use it if a stricter, more accurate limit is required (it's off by default). It tracks the size of actual data bytes of objects (system and metadata is not considered). On the upside, reaching the data limit still allows data to be removed (assuming DB limit is not reached). Max data and DB sizes can be combined; data size must be below the DB size.

◆ obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_db_size_in_kb ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint64_t  size_in_kb 
)

Set the maximum db size on the options. The default is 1Gb.

◆ obx_opt_max_readers()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_max_readers ( OBX_store_options opt,
unsigned int  max_readers 
)

Set the maximum number of readers (related to read transactions) on the given options. "Readers" are an finite resource for which we need to define a maximum number upfront. The default value is enough for most apps and usually you can ignore it completely. However, if you get the OBX_ERROR_MAX_READERS_EXCEEDED error, you should verify your threading. For each thread, ObjectBox uses multiple readers. Their number (per thread) depends on number of types, relations, and usage patterns. Thus, if you are working with many threads (e.g. in a server-like scenario), it can make sense to increase the maximum number of readers.

Note
The internal default is currently 126. So when hitting this limit, try values around 200-500.
Attention
Each thread that performed a read transaction and is still alive holds on to a reader slot. These slots only get vacated when the thread ends. Thus be mindful with the number of active threads. Alternatively, you can opt to try the experimental noReaderThreadLocals option flag.

◆ obx_opt_model()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model ( OBX_store_options opt,
OBX_model model 
)

Set the model on the options. The default is no model. NOTE: the model is always freed by this function, including when an error occurs.

◆ obx_opt_model_bytes()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model_bytes ( OBX_store_options opt,
const void *  bytes,
size_t  size 
)

Set the model on the options copying the given bytes. The default is no model.

◆ obx_opt_model_bytes_direct()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_opt_model_bytes_direct ( OBX_store_options opt,
const void *  bytes,
size_t  size 
)

Like obx_opt_model_bytes BUT WITHOUT copying the given bytes. Thus, you must keep the bytes available until after the store is created.

◆ obx_opt_no_reader_thread_locals()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_no_reader_thread_locals ( OBX_store_options opt,
bool  flag 
)

Disables the usage of thread locals for "readers" related to read transactions. This can make sense if you are using a lot of threads that are kept alive.

Note
This is still experimental, as it comes with subtle behavior changes at a low level and may affect corner cases with e.g. transactions, which may not be fully tested at the moment.

◆ obx_opt_put_padding_mode()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_put_padding_mode ( OBX_store_options opt,
OBXPutPaddingMode  mode 
)

Don't touch unless you know exactly what you are doing: Advanced setting typically meant for language bindings (not end users). See OBXPutPaddingMode description.

◆ obx_opt_read_only()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_read_only ( OBX_store_options opt,
bool  value 
)

◆ obx_opt_read_schema()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_read_schema ( OBX_store_options opt,
bool  value 
)

Advanced setting meant only for special scenarios: setting to false causes opening the database in a limited, schema-less mode. If you don't know what this means exactly: ignore this flag. Defaults to true.

◆ obx_opt_use_previous_commit()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_use_previous_commit ( OBX_store_options opt,
bool  value 
)

Advanced setting recommended to be used together with read-only mode to ensure no data is lost. Ignores the latest data snapshot (committed transaction state) and uses the previous snapshot instead. When used with care (e.g. backup the DB files first), this option may also recover data removed by the latest transaction. Defaults to false.

◆ obx_opt_validate_on_open_kv()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_validate_on_open_kv ( OBX_store_options opt,
uint32_t  flags 
)

When the DB is opened initially, ObjectBox can do a validation over the key/value pairs to check, for example, whether they're consistent towards our internal specification.

Parameters
flagsflags used to influence how the validation checks are performed; see OBXValidateOnOpenKvFlags for values (use bitwise OR to combine multiple flags)

◆ obx_opt_validate_on_open_pages()

OBX_C_API void obx_opt_validate_on_open_pages ( OBX_store_options opt,
size_t  page_limit,
uint32_t  flags 
)

When the DB is opened initially, ObjectBox can do a consistency check on the given amount of pages. Reliable file systems already guarantee consistency, so this is primarily meant to deal with unreliable OSes, file systems, or hardware. Thus, usually a low number (e.g. 1-20) is sufficient and does not impact startup performance significantly. To completely disable this you can pass 0, but we recommend a setting of at least 1. Note: ObjectBox builds upon ACID storage, which guarantees consistency given that the file system is working correctly (in particular fsync).

Parameters
page_limitlimits the number of checked pages (currently defaults to 0, but will be increased in the future)
flagsflags used to influence how the validation checks are performed; see OBXValidateOnOpenPagesFlags for values (use bitwise OR to combine multiple flags)

This is useful when you have a query with multiple conditions of the same property (e.g. height < 20 or height > 50) and you want to use obx_query_param_* to change the values. Consider the following simplified example.

Example: Create a query with two aliased params and set their values later during query execution:

     OBX_query_builder* qb = obx_query_builder(store, entity_id);
     obx_qb_less_than_int(qb, height_prop_id, 0)
     obx_qb_param_alias(qb, "height-lt")
     obx_qb_greater_than_int(qb, height_prop_id, 0)
     obx_qb_param_alias(qb, "height-gt")
     OBX_query* query = obx_query(OBX_query_builder* qb);
     ...
     obx_query_param_alias_int(query, "height-lt", 20)
     obx_query_param_alias_int(query, "height-gt", 50)
     OBX_bytes_array* results = obx_query_find(query)
     obx_query_param_alias_int(query, "height-lt", 100)

uint32_t  relation_count 
)

An object matches, if it has a given number of related objects pointing to it. At this point, there are a couple of limitations (later version may improve on that): 1) 1:N relations only, 2) the complexity is O(n * (relationCount + 1)) and cannot be improved via indexes, 3) The relation count cannot be set as an parameter.

Parameters
relation_entity_idID of the entity type the relation comes from.
relation_property_idID of the property in the related entity type representing the relation.
relation_countNumber of related object an object must have to match. May be 0 if objects shall be matched that do not have related objects. (Typically low numbers are used for the count.)

Find entities matching the query. NOTE: the returned data is only valid as long the transaction is active!

◆ obx_query_find_first()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_query_find_first ( OBX_query query,
const void **  data,
size_t *  size 
)

Find the first object matching the query.

Returns
OBX_NOT_FOUND if no object matches. The exposed data comes directly from the OS to allow zero-copy access, which limits the data lifetime:
Warning
Currently ignores offset, taking the the first matching element.
Attention
The exposed data is only valid as long as the (top) transaction is still active and no write operation (e.g. put/remove) was executed. Accessing data after this is undefined behavior.

◆ obx_query_find_ids()

OBX_C_API OBX_id_array* obx_query_find_ids ( OBX_query query)

Return the IDs of all matching objects.

◆ obx_query_find_unique()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_query_find_unique ( OBX_query query,
const void **  data,
size_t *  size 
)

Find the only object matching the query.

Returns
OBX_NOT_FOUND if no object matches, an error if there are multiple objects matching the query. The exposed data comes directly from the OS to allow zero-copy access, which limits the data lifetime:
Warning
Currently ignores offset and limit, considering all matching elements.
Attention
The exposed data is only valid as long as the (top) transaction is still active and no write operation (e.g. put/remove) was executed. Accessing data after this is undefined behavior.

◆ obx_query_limit()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_query_limit ( OBX_query query,

)

Configure a limit for this query - all methods that support limit will return/process only the given number of objects. Example use case: use together with offset to get a slice of the whole result, e.g. for "result paging". Call with limit=0 to reset to the default behavior - zero limit means no limit applied.

◆ obx_query_offset()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_query_offset ( OBX_query query,
size_t  offset 
)

Configure an offset for this query - all methods that support offset will return/process objects starting at this offset.

◆ obx_query_offset_limit()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_query_offset_limit ( OBX_query query,
size_t  offset,
size_t  limit 
)

Configure an offset and a limit for this query - all methods that support an offset/limit will return/process objects starting at this offset and up to the given limit. Example use case: get a slice of the whole result, e.g. for "result paging". Call with offset/limit=0 to reset to the default behavior, i.e. starting from the first element without limit.

◆ obx_store_clone()

OBX_C_API OBX_store* obx_store_clone ( OBX_store store)

Clone a previously opened store; while a store instance is usable from multiple threads, situations may exist in which cloning a store simplifies the overall lifecycle. E.g. when a store is used for multiple threads and it may only be fully released once the last thread completes. The returned store is a new instance (e.g. different pointer value) and must also be closed via obx_store_close(). The actual underlying store is only closed when the last store OBX_store instance is closed.

Returns
nullptr if the store could not be cloned
See also
obx_store_attach() for "cloning" using the store's path.

◆ obx_store_close()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_close ( OBX_store store)

)

Return the property id from the property name or 0 if the name is not found.

◆ obx_store_id()

OBX_C_API uint64_t obx_store_id ( OBX_store store)

Store IDs can be used to attach to a store later. The IDs are stable and unique during the lifetime of the process. E.g. these IDs can be shared across threads efficiently and can serve a similar purpose as weak pointers do.

◆ obx_store_is_open()

OBX_C_API bool obx_store_is_open ( const char *  path)

Check if an open store was found for the given path (i.e. opened before and not yet closed).

◆ obx_store_open()

OBX_C_API OBX_store* obx_store_open ( OBX_store_options opt)

Opens (creates) a "store", which represents an ObjectBox database instance in a given directory. The store is an entry point to data access APIs such as box (obx_box_*), query (obx_qb_* and obx_query_*), and transaction (obx_txn_*). It's possible to open multiple stores in different directories, e.g. at the same time. See also obx_store_close() to close a previously opened store. Note: the given options are always freed by this function, including when an error occurs.

Parameters
optrequired parameter holding the data model (obx_opt_model()) and optional options (see obx_opt_*())
Returns
NULL if the operation failed, see functions like obx_last_error_code() to get error details

◆ obx_store_opened_with_previous_commit()

OBX_C_API bool obx_store_opened_with_previous_commit ( OBX_store store)
Returns
true if the store was opened with a previous commit
See also
obx_opt_use_previous_commit()

◆ obx_store_prepare_to_close()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_store_prepare_to_close ( OBX_store store)

Prepares the store to close by setting its internal state to "closing". Functions relying on the store will result in OBX_ERROR_SHUTTING_DOWN status once closing is initiated. Unlike obx_store_close(), this method will return immediately and does not free resources just yet. This is typically used in a multi-threaded context to allow an orderly shutdown in stages which go through a "not accepting new requests" state.

◆ obx_store_type_id()

OBX_C_API uint32_t obx_store_type_id ( OBX_store store)

Gives the store type ID for the given store.

Returns
One of OBXStoreTypeId

◆ obx_store_type_id_register_default()

OBX_C_API int obx_store_type_id_register_default ( uint32_t  storeTypeId)

Registers the default DB type, which is used if no other types matched a path prefix.

Parameters
storeTypeIdMust be one of OBXStoreTypeId (for now).

◆ obx_store_wrap()

OBX_C_API OBX_store* obx_store_wrap ( void *  core_store)

For stores created outside of this C API, e.g. via C++ or Java, this is how you can use it via C too. Like this, it is OK to use the same store instance (same database) from multiple languages in parallel. Note: the store's life time will still be managed outside of the C API; thus ensure that store is not closed while calling any C function on it. Once you are done with the C specific OBX_store, call obx_store_close() to free any C related resources. This, however, will not close the "core store".

Parameters
core_storeA pointer to the core C++ ObjectStore, or the native JNI handle for a BoxStore.

◆ obx_string_array_free()

OBX_C_API void obx_string_array_free ( OBX_string_array array)

Free the array struct.

OBX_tree_options options 
)

Creates a tree for the given store.

Parameters
optionscan be null for default options (e.g. use '/' as a path delimiter). The options are always freed when calling this function.

◆ obx_tree_async_consolidate_node_conflicts()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_async_consolidate_node_conflicts ( OBX_tree tree)

Explicitly consolidates tree node conflicts (non unique nodes sharing a common path) asynchronously. See also obx_tree_cursor_consolidate_node_conflicts() for a synchronous version.

◆ obx_tree_async_put_raw()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_async_put_raw ( OBX_tree tree,
const char *  path,
void *  leaf_data,
size_t  leaf_data_size,
OBXPropertyType  type,
void *  leaf_metadata,
size_t  leaf_metadata_size,
OBXPutMode  leaf_put_mode,
obx_tree_async_put_callback callback,
void *  callback_user_data 
)

Like obx_tree_cursor_put_raw(), but asynchronous.

Parameters
callbackOptional (may be null) function that is called with results once the async operation completes.
callback_user_dataAny value you can supply, which is passed on to the callback (e.g. to identify user specific context).

◆ obx_tree_close()

OBX_C_API void obx_tree_close ( OBX_tree tree)

◆ obx_tree_cursor()

OBX_C_API OBX_tree_cursor* obx_tree_cursor ( OBX_tree tree,
OBX_txn txn 
)

To get/put data from tree, you need to create a tree cursor using this method.

Parameters
txnmay be null if the transaction will be set later via obx_tree_cursor_txn()

◆ obx_tree_cursor_close()

OBX_C_API void obx_tree_cursor_close ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor)

Closes the tree cursor, e.g. before a transaction is ending. The cursor cannot be used afterwards (consider obx_tree_cursor_reset() if you want to keep using it).

◆ obx_tree_cursor_consolidate_node_conflicts()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_cursor_consolidate_node_conflicts ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
size_t *  out_consolidated_count 
)

Explicitly consolidates tree node conflicts (non unique nodes sharing a common path). See also obx_tree_async_consolidate_node_conflicts() for an asynchronous version.

◆ obx_tree_cursor_get_child_leaves_info()

OBX_C_API OBX_tree_leaves_info* obx_tree_cursor_get_child_leaves_info ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
const char *  path 
)

Given an existing path, return all existing leaves with their paths. As this traverses the data tree (i.e. not the meta tree), it will only return nodes that exist (obviously). Thus, the meta tree may contain additional paths, but these are unused by the data tree (currently at least).

Parameters
paththe branch or leaf path to use. Optional: if no path is given (null), the root node is taken.
Returns
leaf info ordered by path depth (i.e. starting from paths with the smallest number of branches); paths at same depth are ordered by id.

◆ obx_tree_cursor_get_leaf_path()

OBX_C_API const char* obx_tree_cursor_get_leaf_path ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
obx_id  leaf_id 
)

Gets the full path (from the root) of the given leaf ID.

Returns
If successful, an allocated path is returned (malloc), which must be free()-ed by the caller.
If not successful, NULL is returned.

◆ obx_tree_cursor_get_raw()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_cursor_get_raw ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
const char *  path,
const void **  data,
size_t *  size,
const void **  metadata,
size_t *  metadata_size 
)

A "low-level" get operation to access a tree leaf using the raw FlatBuffer bytes stored in the database. As usual, the data is only valid during the lifetime of the transaction and before the first write to the DB. An advantage of using "raw" operations is that custom properties can be passed in the FlatBuffer.

Parameters
datareceiver of the data pointer (non-null pointer to a pointer), which will be pointing to FlatBuffers bytes for the data leaf after this call.
metadataoptional FlatBuffers receiver (nullable pointer to a pointer) for the meta leaf.
Returns
general success/error codes and some tree-specific ones (OBX_ERROR_TREE_*)

◆ obx_tree_cursor_put_raw()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_cursor_put_raw ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
const char *  path,
void *  leaf_data,
size_t  leaf_data_size,
OBXPropertyType  type,
obx_id out_id,
void *  leaf_metadata,
size_t  leaf_metadata_size,
OBXPutMode  leaf_put_mode 
)

A "low-level" put operation for a tree leaf using given raw FlatBuffer bytes. Any non-existing branches and meta nodes are put on the fly if an optional meta-leaf FlatBuffers is given. A typical usage pattern is to first try without the meta-leaf, and if it does not work, create the meta-leaf and call again with the meta leaf. This approach takes into account that meta-leaves typically exist, and thus no resources are wasted for meta-leaf creation if it's not required. An advantage of using "raw" operations is that custom properties can be passed in the FlatBuffers.

Parameters
leaf_dataprepared FlatBuffers bytes for the data leaf (non-const as the data buffer will be mutated); note: slots for IDs must be already be prepared (zero values)
typevalue type of the given leafObject: it has to be passed to verify against stored metadata
leaf_metadataoptional FlatBuffers for the meta leaf; at minimum, "name" and "type" must be set. Note: slots for IDs must be already be prepared (zero values). Passing null indicates that the branches and meta nodes must already exist; otherwise the operation will fail and OBX_NOT_FOUND will be returned.
leaf_put_modeFor the data leaf only (the actual value tree node)
Returns
OBX_NOT_FOUND if the path did not exist (and no metadata was given)
OBX_NO_SUCCESS if the put was not successful according to the put mode
also other standard result codes like OBX_SUCCESS or OBX_ERR_*

◆ obx_tree_cursor_txn()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_cursor_txn ( OBX_tree_cursor cursor,
OBX_txn txn 
)

Sets or clears a transaction from the tree cursor.

A typical use case for this function is to cache the tree cursor for reusing it later. Note: before closing a transaction, ensure to clear it here first (set to null).

◆ obx_tree_leaves_info_free()

OBX_C_API void obx_tree_leaves_info_free ( OBX_tree_leaves_info leaves_info)

Frees a leaves info reference.

size_t  index 
)

Gets the id of a given leaf (by index).

◆ obx_tree_leaves_info_path()

OBX_C_API const char* obx_tree_leaves_info_path ( OBX_tree_leaves_info leaves_info,
size_t  index 
)

Gets the path of a given leaf (by index).

◆ obx_tree_leaves_info_size()

OBX_C_API size_t obx_tree_leaves_info_size ( OBX_tree_leaves_info leaves_info)

Gets the number of leaves from the given leaves info.

size_t  index 
)

Gets the property type (as OBXPropertyType) of a given leaf (by index).

Returns
OBXPropertyType_Unknown if no property type was found.

◆ obx_tree_node_conflict_count()

OBX_C_API size_t obx_tree_node_conflict_count ( OBX_tree tree)

Gets the number of currently tracked node conflicts (non-unique nodes at the same path). This count gets resent when conflicts get consolidated. Only tracked if OBXTreeOptionFlags_DetectNonUniqueNodes (or OBXTreeOptionFlags_AutoConsolidateNonUniqueNodes) is set.

◆ obx_tree_opt_flags()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_opt_flags ( OBX_tree_options options,
uint32_t  flags 
)

Sets the given OBXTreeOptionFlags at the tree options. Combine multiple flags using bitwise OR.

◆ obx_tree_opt_path_delimiter()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_tree_opt_path_delimiter ( OBX_tree_options options,
char  path_delimiter 
)

Adjusts the path delimiter character, which is by default "/".

◆ obx_tree_options()

OBX_C_API OBX_tree_options* obx_tree_options ( )

Creates a options object that is passed to tree creation via obx_tree().

◆ obx_tree_options_free()

OBX_C_API void obx_tree_options_free ( OBX_tree_options options)

Free the tree options if they were not used (and "consumed") by obx_tree(). Note: Only free unused options, obx_tree() frees the options internally.

◆ obx_txn_abort()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_abort ( OBX_txn txn)

Note: At the moment, you typically want to use only obx_txn_close() instead. Abort the underlying transaction immediately and thus frees DB resources. Only obx_txn_close() is allowed to be called on the transaction after calling this.

◆ obx_txn_close()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_close ( OBX_txn txn)

Close the transaction (read or write) and free all of its resources; the given OBX_txn pointer must not be used afterwards. If the given transaction is a write transaction, it is aborted (not committed) right away (without waiting for the top level transaction). If an error is returned (e.g., a commit failed because DB is full), you can assume that the transaction was closed.

Parameters
txnmay be NULL

◆ obx_txn_data_size()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_data_size ( OBX_txn txn,
uint64_t *  out_committed_size,
int64_t *  out_size_change 
)

◆ obx_txn_read()

OBX_C_API OBX_txn* obx_txn_read ( OBX_store store)

Create a read transaction (read only). Transaction creation can be nested (recursive), however only the outermost transaction is relevant on the DB level. Once you are done tithe the transaction, you must call obx_txn_close().

Returns
NULL if the operation failed, see functions like obx_last_error_code() to get error details

◆ obx_txn_success()

OBX_C_API obx_err obx_txn_success ( OBX_txn txn)

"Finish" this write transaction successfully and close it, performing a commit if this is the top level transaction and all inner transactions (if any) were also successful (obx_txn_success() was called on them). Because this also closes the given transaction along with all resources, the given OBX_txn pointer becomes invalid. Thus, the OBX_txn pointer must not be used afterwards; do not even call obx_txn_close().

Returns
OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE if the given transaction is not a write transaction.

◆ obx_txn_write()

OBX_C_API OBX_txn* obx_txn_write ( OBX_store store)

Create a write transaction (read and write). Transaction creation can be nested (recursive), however only the outermost transaction is relevant on the DB level. Once you are done tithe the transaction, you must call obx_txn_success() or obx_txn_close().

Returns
NULL if the operation failed, see functions like obx_last_error_code() to get error details; e.g. code OBX_ERROR_ILLEGAL_STATE will be set if called when inside a read transaction.

◆ obx_version()

OBX_C_API void obx_version ( int *  major,
int *  minor,
int *  patch 
)

Return the (runtime) version of the library as ints. Pointers may be null.

◆ obx_version_is_at_least()

OBX_C_API bool obx_version_is_at_least ( int  major,
int  minor,
int  patch 
)

Check if the (runtime) version of the library is equal to or higher than the given version ints.

◆ obx_version_string()

OBX_C_API const char* obx_version_string ( void  )

Return the (runtime) version of the library to be printed. The current format is "major.minor.patch" (e.g. "1.0.0") but may change in any future release. Thus, only use for information purposes.

See also
obx_version() and obx_version_is_at_least() for integer based versions

◆ obx_weak_store()

OBX_C_API OBX_weak_store* obx_weak_store ( OBX_store store)

Creates a weak reference to the given store.
