Class MultithreadedItemMappingIterator

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, java.lang.AutoCloseable, LastPositionFinder, SequenceIterator, LookaheadIterator

    public class MultithreadedItemMappingIterator
    extends ItemMappingIterator
    Parallel-processing version of the ItemMappingIterator class, which executes a mapping function for each item in a sequence. In this implementation (which is designed initially for use by the collection() function), the order of items in the result sequence retains the order of items in the input sequence.
    • Method Detail

      • getMaxThreads

        protected int getMaxThreads()
        Overridable method that decides how many threads to use. The default implementation returns the value of Runtime.getRuntime().availableProcessors(), or 1 if greater.
        the maximum number of threads to use.
      • next

        public Item next()
        Description copied from interface: SequenceIterator
        Get the next item in the sequence. This method changes the state of the iterator.
        Specified by:
        next in interface SequenceIterator
        next in class ItemMappingIterator
        the next item, or null if there are no more items. Once a call on next() has returned null, no further calls should be made. The preferred action for an iterator if subsequent calls on next() are made is to return null again, and all implementations within Saxon follow this rule.
      • close

        public void close()
        The user of a SequenceIterator is encouraged to call the close() method if no further items are required from the sequence of items delivered by the SequenceIterator. This allows resources to be released. A SequenceIterator is NOT normally closed explicitly if it has been read to completion. This implementation of the close() method shuts down the ExecutorService used to schedule threads.

        close in interface java.lang.AutoCloseable
        Specified by:
        close in interface
        Specified by:
        close in interface SequenceIterator
        close in class ItemMappingIterator
      • discharge

        public void discharge()
        Description copied from interface: SequenceIterator
        Calling this method instructs the iterator to release any resources it holds, while still remaining able to deliver the remaining items in the sequence. This may require the iterator to calculate the rest of the sequence eagerly. The method is called by a client if it anticipates that it might not read the iterator to completion, but it cannot guarantee that SequenceIterator.close() will be called when no more items are needed.
