Interface KeyStoreIndex

All Known Implementing Classes:
CertificateHashKeyStoreIndex, CertificateKeyStoreIndex, IssuerKeyStoreIndex, LabelKeyStoreIndex, PrivateKeysKeyStoreIndex, PublicKeyKeyStoreIndex, SerialNumberIssuerKeyStoreIndex, SubjectKeyIdentifierKeyStoreIndex, SubjectKeyStoreIndex, X509PublicKeyHashKeyStoreIndex, AssociatedDataKeyStoreIndex

public interface KeyStoreIndex

Specifies the information that the key store will be indexed on.

NOTE: It is the responsibility of the developer to create and implement this interface for each index they want in the key store.

It is worthwhile to note that there are already several indices implemented in the KeyStore and other applications at RIM that may be available for you to call before you attempt to implement your own index.

For more information on using a keystore index, see Using the keystore index. This quick tutorial provides overview information as well as an example on how to use an index within a keystore.

Method Detail

addToIndex

public void addToIndex(KeyStoreData data,
                       KeyStoreDataMap map)
This method is called by the index to add the alias values or integers that are going to be used to link to the key store data object that was passed into this method.

Parameters:
data - The KeyStoreData object where one is going to construct the hashes from.
map - The object that is going to be used to add the hashes to the key store.

getHash

public int getHash(Object target)
            throws IllegalArgumentException
Returns the int representing the target object passed into the KeyStoreDataComparator.

Parameters:
target - The object to return the representing int from.
Returns:
An integer representing the target object passed into this method.
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - Thrown if the specified target parameter is invalid.

getID

public long getID()
Returns the long associated with this index class for use inside the keystore.

Note that this long has to be unique.

Returns:
A long that is associated with the index.

matches

public boolean matches(KeyStoreData data,
                       Object target)
This method will return true if the target is the KeyStoreData object that is found using the index.

Parameters:
data - The key store data to be found.
target - The information that used to find the key store data.
Returns:
true if the key store data object equals the target, false otherwise.
