BSA — Life cycle of an AnalysisInstance

  • Key: BSA-15
  • Legacy Issue Number: 3556
  • Status: closed

  • Summary:

    Life cycle of an AnalysisInstance. These objects have the back pointer
    to their AnalysisServices. However, I can imagine the situation where
    clients have AnalysisInstance objects stored somewhere and using them to
    retrieve results of previously (even long ago) started and finished
    This normal situation can become interesting if the server does not
    provide that analysis any more. I feel that it would be still reasonable
    to provide access to the old stored results.
    But to allow it, our spec should mention this possibility - and allows
    to have this back poiter empty. So the client will have access to their
    data but with limited support from the server (for example the client
    cannot get metadata because the corresponding analysis is simply dead).
    Or we could say that the back poiner cannot remain empty but can return
    NO_OBJ... or whatever sytem exception (in situations as described above)>.
    Or, we'd have to change the readonly attribute to a method so that we
    can add the exception.
