The proxy proxy manager provides access to proxy sessions and provides interoperability tests for various aspects of this service.
This session converts external data into a proxy for use in OSID proxy managers.
The Open Service Interface Definitions for the org.osid.proxy service.
The Proxy OSID helps a consumer map external data, such as that received via a server request, into a Proxy that can be used with OSID proxy managers. Then purpose of this OSID is to modularize assumptions made about the input data into another OSID Provider, such as the authentication or localization information.
Proxy represents the
OsidResult of an
evaluation of the input
OsidCondition performed by the Proxy
OSID Provider. The resulting Proxy is meant to be passed to
OsidProxyManagers. The Proxy OSID is the glue between the
application server environment and the OSID services.
The input data may be anything acceptable to a
record Type. The
are aligned with the application server environment while the
Types are aligned with OSID
Providers. This alignment poses various interoperability issues and as such
it might be helpful to be very broad in what may be specified in a
ProxyCondition so that this service may produce the variety of
Proxy records needed by the services in the OSID
Some data is defined in the
ProxyCondition. This in no
way implies support of this input by an OSID Provider. The resulting
OsidSession indicates what actually happened.
An example using a specifier record for an http request:
ProxyCondition condition = proxySession.getProxyCondition(); HttpRequestRecord record = condition.getProxyConditionRecord(httpRequestRecordType); record.setHttpRequest(servletRequest); Proxy proxy = proxySession.getProxy(condition);
