RegistryContext Attribute Description

Attribute Name

A description about the Attribute

resourceMediaTypes

The list of media types defined and available to all resources stored on the registry can be found here.

collectionMediaTypes

The list of media types defined and available to all collections stored on the registry can be found here.

customUIMediaTypes

The list of media types for which custom content can be created are listed in here.

clone

Whether this RegistryContext instance is the base instance of whether it is a clone of the base instance.

realmService

defaultDataBaseConfiguration

This contains the database configurations which contains username password with data source information and other useful database-related information.

dbConfigs

This is a Map which contains DataBaseConfiguration objects with Configuration Name as the key. So multiple database configurations are loaded in to this Map, which users can examine the current database configurations in the Registry, or if they want to add more, they can always see whether those changes are applied by examining this map.

handlerManager

This is the object which keeps all the handlers in it with a set of Lists for each and every operation of the Registry interface with appropriate names. As an example, which extend put method in Registry interface will be at putHandlerMap, which contains the appropriate Handler object and Filter.

This contains the information about the Custom Editing. For certain resources, the Registry allow users have its own Custom UI to edit that resource instead of standard view. During the initialization, all the custom editing information will be loaded into this Object at RegistryConfigurationProcessor class.

queryProcessors

This is again a list which keeps QueryProcessorConfiguration objects in it. There can be a set of QueryProcessorConfiguration in the registry.xml, and all the configurations are loaded into a set of QueryProcessorConfiguration objects and simply added to this list.

queryProcessorManager

This is the QueryProcessorManager instance, which is responsible for managing the query processors that are used to execute various types of queries.

repository

The user can get a Repository instance from the RegistryContext object, which a user can use to call some of the methods like when a user wants to skip handlers and put certain resources in to Registry.

versionRepository

registryRoot

This defines the root of the Registry instance backed by this RegistryContext.

jdbcDir
