dizmo Data Tree V1.2

viewer

dizmo's note: The subtree of the «/viewer» node provides all data about the instance of dizmoSpace currently running and allows dizmos to store that should be made available to other dizmos running in this dizmoSpace instance (private subtree) as well as providing access to information shared with the world (public subtree).

Access to this information is provided by the access methods of the viewer object:
viewer.getAttribute("<path>");
viewer.setAttribute("<path>");
viewer.privateStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
viewer.privateStorage.setProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
viewer.publicStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
viewer.publicStorage.setProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);

For more information have a look at the chapters about «Data Tree» and «Persistence» in the developers documentation.

The URL to access a public node at "/viewer/public/mypath/node" will be something like "http://host.example.com:3418/viewer/public/mypath/node". This will either be made available through AJAX or potentially by providing access functions like getPropertyHttp("10.0.5.22:3418", "/viewer/public/mypath/node");

private

dizmo's note: Nodes stored in this part of the viewer tree will be accessible for all dizmos that are instantiated locally. Use viewer.privateStorage().getProperty("[anypath]") to access such a local node.

dizmos

dizmo's note: The subtree of the «/dizmos» node provides access to the data about all the dizmos instantiated in the dizmoSpace currently running. It does so by providing one node for every dizmo using the dizmoID as its name.

Each of these dizmo nodes provides three subtrees providing attributes of a dizmo as well as access to its public and private data. Data in the private subtree can only be accessed by the dizmo that hold this node while data in the public subtree can be accessed by any dizmo that has access to that part of the data tree.

Access to a dizmos information is provided by the following access methods:
dizmo.getAttribute("<path>");
dizmo.setAttribute("<path>");
dizmo.privateStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
dizmo.privateStorage.setProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
dizmo.publicStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
dizmo.publicStorage.setProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);

For more information have a look at the chapters about «Data Tree» and «Persistence» in the developers documentation.

dizmo's note: The name of this node is a dizmoID that is used to identify a particular instance of a dizmo. This is a hex string that might look like "h3753bff70b74d672524fa570f2fa2567". So the name of the node given here is just an example. In an actual environment expect there to be several of these nodes but all of them sharing the same structure as shown this example.

dizmo's note: Nodes stored in this part of the dizmo tree will be accessible from the dizmo itself only. Use dizmo.privateStorage().getProperty("[anypath]") to access such a node.

bundles

dizmo's note: The subtree of the «/bundles» node provides access to the data about all the bundles installed in the dizmoSpace currently running. It does so by providing one node for every bundle using the bundleID as its name.

Each of these bundle nodes provides three subtrees providing attributes of a bundle as well as access to its public and private data. Data in the private subtree can only be accessed by dizmos that have been created using this bundle while data in the public subtree can be accessed by any dizmo that has access to that part of the data tree.

Access to a dizmos information is provided by the following access methods:
bundle.getAttribute("<path>");
bundle.setAttribute("<path>");
bundle.privateStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
bundle.privateStorage.setProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);
bundle.publicStorage.getProperty("<path>"[, {<options>}]);

For more information have a look at the chapters about «Data Tree» and «Persistence» in the developers documentation.
