Member Function Documentation

◆ create()

template<class _T >
static std::shared_ptr<Serializable> apache::geode::client::Serializable::create ( _T  value)
static

Factory method that creates the Serializable object that matches the type of value.

For user defined derivations of Serializable, the method apache::geode::client::Serializable::create may be overloaded.

◆ objectSize()

virtual size_t apache::geode::client::Serializable::objectSize ( ) const
virtual

return the size in bytes of the instance being serialized.

This is used to determine whether the cache is using up more physical memory than it has been configured to use. The method can return zero if the user does not require the ability to control cache memory utilization. Note that you must implement this only if you use the HeapLRU feature.

Reimplemented in apache::geode::client::PdxInstance, apache::geode::client::CacheableString, apache::geode::client::CacheableEnum, and apache::geode::client::CacheableDate.

◆ toString()

virtual std::string apache::geode::client::Serializable::toString ( ) const
virtual
