class ctkServices

Detailed Description

A registered service.

The Framework returns a ctkServiceRegistration object when a ctkPluginContext::registerService() method invocation is successful. The ctkServiceRegistration object is for the private use of the registering plugin and should not be shared with other plugins.

The ctkServiceRegistration object may be used to update the properties of the service or to unregister the service.

void ctkServiceRegistration::setProperties ( const ServiceProperties properties  ) 

Updates the properties associated with a service.

The PluginConstants#OBJECTCLASS and PluginConstants#SERVICE_ID keys cannot be modified by this method. These values are set by the Framework when the service is registered in the environment.

void ctkServiceRegistration::unregister (  )  [virtual]

Unregisters a service. Remove a ctkServiceRegistration object from the Framework service registry. All ctkServiceReference objects associated with this ctkServiceRegistration object can no longer be used to interact with the service once unregistration is complete.

The following steps are required to unregister a service:

  1. The service is removed from the Framework service registry so that it can no longer be obtained.
  2. A service event of type ServiceEvent#UNREGISTERING is fired so that plugins using this service can release their use of the service. Once delivery of the service event is complete, the ctkServiceReference objects for the service may no longer be used to get a service object for the service.
  3. For each plugin whose use count for this service is greater than zero:
    The plugin's use count for this service is set to zero.
    If the service was registered with a ctkServiceFactory object, the ctkServiceFactory::ungetService method is called to release the service object for the plugin.
std::logic_error If this ctkServiceRegistration object has already been unregistered.
