Poco::Util::AbstractConfiguration::getData

Postby elemings » 02 Dec 2010, 02:05

Something like the following:

Code: Select all

class AbstractConfiguration
{
public:
    typedef unsigned char Byte;
    typedef Poco::Buffer<Byte> Data;
    Data getData (const std::string& key);
protected:
    size_t getRawData (const std::string& key, Byte* data) = 0;
};

what would getData() do that getString() couldn't? Base64 or BinHex decoding?

Good point. The extended interface is for convenience I suppose. It unburdens clients from having to do the encoding/decoding themselves.
