Detailed Description

Event published when new content is added to a case or there is a change a recorded attribute of existing content. For example, a content changed event should be published when an analysis (ingest) module adds an extracted or carved file to a case. The "old" value is a legacy ModuleContentEvent object. The "new" value is null.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

org.sleuthkit.autopsy.ingest.events.ContentChangedEvent.ContentChangedEvent ( ModuleContentEvent  eventData)

Constructs a event to be published when new content is added to a case or there is a change a recorded attribute of existing content.

Parameters
eventDataA ModuleContentEvent object containing the data associated with the content addition or change.

Putting a serializable data holding object into newValue to allow for lazy loading of the ModuleContent object. This bypasses the issues related to the serialization and de-serialization of Content objects when the event is published over a network.

Definition at line 51 of file ContentChangedEvent.java.

Member Function Documentation

Object org.sleuthkit.autopsy.ingest.events.ContentChangedEvent.getOldValue ( )

Gets the legacy ModuleContentEvent object associated with this event. Note that the content object that was added or changed can be accessed via the getSource() method of the ModuleContentEvent.

Returns
The ModuleContentEvent.

The eventData field is set in the constructor, but it is transient so it will become null when the event is serialized for publication over a network. Doing a lazy load of the ModuleContentEvent object bypasses the issues related to the serialization and de-serialization of Content objects and may also save database round trips from other nodes since subscribers to this event are often not interested in the event data.

Object org.sleuthkit.autopsy.events.AutopsyEvent.getSource ( )
inherited

Gets the source type (local or remote) as a string. This is for clients that do not have access to the AutopsyEvent type, and is necessary because the events package is not currently a public package within the Autopsy-Core NetBeans Module (NBM).

Returns
A string, either "LOCAL" or "REMOTE", as an Object.

Definition at line 82 of file AutopsyEvent.java.

SourceType org.sleuthkit.autopsy.events.AutopsyEvent.getSourceType ( )
inherited

Gets the source type (local or remote).

Returns
SourceType The source type of the event, local or remote.
