Class semper.archive.ArchiveMan

java.lang.Object
   |
   +----semper.archive.ArchiveMan

public class ArchiveMan
extends Object
Archive Manager. Main component of the archive service block, that class gives the means for storing and retrieving objects in the SEMPER archive.

All the objects are stored into the same base :
  • ArGeneral.db

    Other specific bases :
  • ArContext.db : used to store data relative to the archive manager,
  • ArWaste.db : the waste basket base,
  • ArLog.db : the log base.

    The path for the location of the database files is given by the semper configuration file (see semper.Preferences.Configuration), field semper.archive.dbDir.
    The default location is ./database/
