Description

SYNOPSIS


#include <cmci.h> 

CMPIConstClass* CMCIClientFT.getClass(CMCIClient*cl,
CMPIObjectPath*op,
CMPIFlagsflags,
char**properties,
CMPIStatus*rc);

DESCRIPTION

Get Class using op as reference. The content of the returned class structure can be controled using the flags parameter.

Arguments are the client object pointer cl, ObjectPath object pointer op that contains namespace and classname components, flags to affect the returned class structure content, properties array, where if not NULL the members of the array define one or more Property names, and rc the CMPI return status (suppressed when NULL).

The flags argument is a bit mask that can contain combinations of the following flags - CMPI_FLAG_LocalOnly, CMPI_FLAG_IncludeQualifiers and CMPI_FLAG_IncludeClassOrigin.

The properties array defines what properties should be returned for the class. If this argument is not NULL, only the class properties in the list are returned. If it’s NULL all class properties are returned.

RETURN VALUE

When successful the CMCIClientFT.getClass() function returns a pointer to a CMPIConstClass object and sets a successful status code in rc. When unsuccessful it returns NULL and sets the rc argument with the error code and and corresponding error string.

ERRORS

EXAMPLES

CMCIClient *cc;
CMPIObjectPath * objectpath;
CMPIInstance * instance;
CMPIEnumeration * enumeration;
CMPIClass *class;
CMPIStatus status;

/* Setup a conncetion to the CIMOM */
cc = cmciConnect("localhost", NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);

objectpath = newCMPIObjectPath("root/cimv2", "Linux_ComputerSystem", NULL);
class = cc->ft->getClass(cc, objectpath, 0, NULL, &status);

if (!status.rc) {
        fprintf(stderr, "operation error code %d description %s0,
                        status.rc, status.msg->hdl);
        abort();
}
