Class Overview

RecentlyUsedCache is a persistent cache that provides thumbnails for recently used documents in PDFNet. The cache is stored in the persistent cache folder, which can be set by calling PDFNet.setPersistentCachePath(java.lang.String). The cache will be used by any PDFNet process that uses the resource path. If more than one PDFNet process is running concurrently, the first process to acquire a lock on the cache will use it. Subsequent processes will not read or modify the cache. Recently used cache will track the order of N recently used documents, and store references to generated PNG thumbnails for those documents. Most of this functionality happens 'magically', without any necessary user action.

public RecentlyUsedCache ()

Public Methods

public static void accessDocument (String uuid, PDFDoc doc)

Marks the document as having been accessed. This happens implicitly when calling PDFViewCtrl.setDoc, but depending on your use case, you may also want to call it explicitly. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.

Parameters
uuid Unique ID.
doc The document.

public static void accessDocument (String document_path)

Marks the document as having been accessed. This happens implicitly when calling PDFViewCtrl.setDoc, but depending on your use case, you may also want to call it explicitly. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.

Parameters
document_path path to the document being accessed.

public static String getBitmapPathIfExists (String document_path)

Get the path to the thumbnail PNG associated with the document. Even if the document is in the recently accessed list, there is no guarantee it will have an associated PNG. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.

Parameters
document_path path to the document whose bitmap you want to retrieve.
Returns
  • the path to the PNG bitmap, if it exists. Otherwise, an empty string.

public static void initializeRecentlyUsedCache (long num_documents, long max_absolute_space, double max_percentage_space)

Initialize the Recently used cache with the provided limits. If the cache already exists, it will shrink to conform to these limits immediately

Parameters
num_documents the number of documents to track in the recently used list.
max_absolute_space the maximum space, in bytes, the thumbnails can occupy on disk.
max_percentage_space the maximum percentage of free space, in range 0 - 1.0, the thumbnails can occupy on disk.

public static void removeDocument (String document_path)

Removes the document from the recently used list. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.

Parameters
document_path path to the document to remove.

public static void renameDocument (String old_path, String new_path)

Renames a document from the recently used list. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.

Parameters
old_path old path of the document.
new_path new path of the document.

public static void resetCache ()

Blast away the cache from the disk completely, removing any thumbnails and recently used state. You may want to do this if you detect some kind of corruption, or if the user wants to clear out disk space used by your application. Does nothing if RecentlyUsedCache was not initialized successfully.
