Detailed Description

Provides a simple interface to the conditions data base for lccd.

The functionality corresponds to a subset of the ConditionsDB API for user's ( and lccd developer's) convenience. Most of the usual tasks can be handled through this interface.
If needed access to the relevant manager objects of ConditionsDB is provided.
Every DBInterface object is attached to one particular folder in a particular database.
The methods createDBFile() and createSimpleFile() can be used to produce LCIO files with conditions data as input for the corresponding conditions handlers in a reconstrcution program.
They also provide an easy way to browse the database horizontally (by tag) or vertically (by time stamp).

20090109, B.Lutz DESY: added functions: void findCollections(ColVec &colVec, LCCDTimeStamp since, LCCDTimeStamp till, const std::string &tag="") ; void dump2File( ) ; void findAllCollections( ColVec& colVec ) ;

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

lccd::DBInterface::DBInterface ( const std::string &  folder,
bool  update = false 
)

Default c'tor, uses lccd::getDBInitString() to determine the db initialization, i.e.

as defined by the environment variable $LCCD_DB_INIT. In update mode the folder is created if it doesn't exist - provided the database user has the proper privileges.

Parameters:
folder,: the folder used for this db access
update,: open db in update mode, default: false

References init().

lccd::DBInterface::DBInterface ( const std::string &  dbInit,
const std::string &  folder,
bool  update = false 
)

Open the database specified in dbInit.

In update mode the folder is created if it doesn't exist - provided the database user has the proper privileges.

Parameters:
folder,: the folder used for this db access
update,: open db in update mode, default: false

References init().

) [protected]
ICondDBDataAccess* lccd::DBInterface::condDataAccess (  )  [inline]

The db access object - use for direct access to the conditions database.

Referenced by findAllCollections(), findCollection(), findCollections(), findLastValidCollection(), findNextValidCollection(), and storeCollection().

ICondDBFolderMgr* lccd::DBInterface::condFolderMgr (  )  [inline]

The folder manager - use for direct access to the conditions database.

void lccd::DBInterface::createDBFile ( const std::string &  tag = ""  ) 

Creates an LCIO file with the all conditions data in the folder for the given tag.

The collections are sorted w.r.t. their validity time intervall and attached to consecutive events. The run header holds a map of validity time intervalls to events. in the parameters DBSince and DBTill.
The name of the file will be of the form "conddb_COLNAME_TAG_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.slcio" where the specified time is the creation time. This file can be used by the DBFileHandler.

void lccd::DBInterface::createSimpleFile ( LCCDTimeStamp  timeStamp,
const std::string &  tag,
bool  allLayers = false 
)

Creates an LCIO file with one event that has a collection with the conditions data for the given time stamp and tag (use "" for the current HEAD).


If allLayers==true then in addition to the specified collection, all collections in the database for this timestamp are added to the event with name COLNAME_layer_LAYERNUM. The name of the file will be of the form "conddb_COLNAME_TAG_TIMESTAMP.slcio" This file can be used by the SimpleFileHandler.

References lccd::DBFOLDER, lccd::DBLAYER, lccd::DBNAME, lccd::DBTAG, lccd::DBTIMESTAMP, findCollection(), and findCollections().

void lccd::DBInterface::dump2File (  ) 

Debug Method: Creates an LCIO file with the all conditions data in the folder.


This file does not respect tags. It is not meant to be used with the DBFileHandler. The collections are sorted w.r.t. their validity time intervall and attached to consecutive events. The run header holds a map of validity time intervalls to events. in the parameters DBSince and DBTill.
The name of the file will be of the form "conddb_COLNAME_YYYYMMDD_HHMMSS.slcio" where the specified time is the creation time.

Warning:
This file does not respect tags. It is not meant ot be used with the DBFileHandler.

void lccd::DBInterface::findAllCollections ( ColVec colVec  ) 

Debug Method: Creates collections for all conditions data in current folder.


This does not respect tags. Description parameters are added to the collections as in findCollection() plus DBLayer.

Warning:
This does not respect tags.

lcio::LCCollection * lccd::DBInterface::findCollection ( LCCDTimeStamp  timeStamp,
const std::string &  tag = "" 
)

Retrieves the collection for the given point in time - returns NULL if it no data is found.


Same as above, except that no information on the validity interval is returned.

References findCollection().

lcio::LCCollection * lccd::DBInterface::findCollection ( LCCDTimeStamp  timeStamp,
LCCDTimeStamp since,
LCCDTimeStamp till,
const std::string &  tag = "" 
)

Retrieves the collection for the given point in time - returns NULL if no data is found.


This expects the LCIO collection type to be decoded in the object description:
"LCIO_COL_TYPE: some description" - storeCollection() does this automatically.
Some parameters are added to the collection:

  • DBName: name of the (MySQL) database
  • DBFolder: data base folder
  • DBTag: the tag used for the query - possibly HEAD at that time.
  • DBQueryTime: the time the conditions data was extracted from the data base.
  • DBInsertionTime: the time the conditions data was inserted into the data base.
  • DBSince: the start of the vaidity intervall
  • DBTill: the end of the validity intervall
  • DBLayer: the layer number of this data set

DBQueryTime, DBInsertionTime, DBSince and DBTill are string vectors with two elements: the 64bit time stamp and the date in human readable format.

Parameters:
timeStamp,: the point in time for which the conditions data is valid
since,: return the begin of the validity interval
end,: return the end of the validity interval
tag,: the tag to be used for the query, if omitted HEAD is used
