Topic A generic qos subtag permitting to pass client specific parameters to other clients or to plugins

In some cases the fixed tags offered by the different qos are not sufficient to cover all specific needs a client has. For example a client wants to send a message to another client and wants to add to the message a correlationId besides the message content (payload). clientProperty is a generic tag so you could pass such information which otherwise would need to be passed wrapped inside the content of the message:

   <clientProperty name='corrId' type='int'>120001</clientProperty>

   <clientProperty name='SayHello'>Hello World</clientProperty>
   <clientProperty name='MyXmlString' type='String' encoding='base64'>
   <clientProperty name='myBlob' type='byte[]' encoding='base64'>

The default property type is String. The String "Bla<BlaBla" contains an illegal < and is therefore automatically base64 encoded to QmxhPEJsYUJsYQ==. Binary BLOB data is base64 encoded as well.

This tag is in the following qos:

  • ConnectQos
  • DisconnectQos
  • PublishQos
  • SubscribeQos
  • UnSubscribeQos
  • GetQos
  • EraseQos
  • UpdateQos

The information you send inside this tag is not processed by the core. It could be processed by other clients (for example in the update method) or by plugins.

If no type is specified it is assumed to be a String. Other objects supported are:

  • Boolean (type='boolean')
  • Byte (type='boolean')
  • Short (type='short')
  • Integer (type='int')
  • Long (type='long')
  • Float (type='float')
  • Double (type='double')
  • Blob (type='byte[]')

<-- Publish QoS to send a message with a given correlationId -->

in with java:
   PublishQos publishQos = new PublishQos(global);
   publishQos.addClientProperty("correlationId", "0102203030452378");

which generates:
   <clientProperty name='correlationId'>0102203030452378</clientProperty>


   PublishQos publishQos = new PublishQos(global);
   publishQos.addClientProperty("windSpeed", new Double(1.2323));

which generates:
   <clientProperty name='windSpeed' type='double'>1.2323</clientProperty>

in the update method:
   String correlationId = updateQos.getClientProperty("correlationId", "");
   double windSpeed = updateQos.getClientProperty("windSpeed", 0.0);

The second argument is the default to use if the property is unknown.

NOTE: Configuration parameters are specified on command line (-someValue 17) or in the xmlBlaster.properties file (someValue=17). See requirement "util.property" for details.
Columns named Impl tells you if the feature is implemented.
Columns named Hot tells you if the configuration is changeable in hot operation.
