Detailed Description

Interface implemented by classes that add data sources of a particular type (e.g., images, local disks, virtual directories of local/logical files) to a case database. A data source processor is NOT responsible for analyzing the data source, i.e., running ingest modules on the data source and its contents.

Data source processors plug in to the add data source wizard and should provide a UI panel to allow a user to select a data source and do any configuration required by the data source processor. The selection and configuration panel should support addition of the add data source wizard as a property change listener and should fire DSP_PANEL_EVENT property change events to communicate with the wizard.

Data source processors should perform all processing in a background task in a separate thread, reporting results using a callback object.

It is recommended that implementers provide an overload of the run method that allows the data source processor to be run independently of the selection and configuration panel.

Member Function Documentation

void org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.cancel ( )

Requests cancellation of the background task that adds a data source to the case database, after the task is started using the run method. This is a "best effort" cancellation, with no guarantees that the case database will be unchanged. If cancellation succeeded, the list of new data sources returned by the background task will be empty.

Implemented in org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.ImageDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalDiskDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalFilesDSProcessor, and org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datasourceprocessors.RawDSProcessor.

String org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.getDataSourceType ( )

Gets a string that describes the type of data sources this processor is able to add to the case database. The string is suitable for display in a type selection UI component (e.g., a combo box).

Returns
A data source type display string for this data source processor.

Implemented in org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.ImageDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalDiskDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalFilesDSProcessor, and org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datasourceprocessors.RawDSProcessor.

JPanel org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.getPanel ( )

Gets the panel that allows a user to select a data source and do any configuration required by the data source. The panel is less than 544 pixels wide and less than 173 pixels high.

Returns
A selection and configuration panel for this data source processor.

Implemented in org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.ImageDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalDiskDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalFilesDSProcessor, and org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datasourceprocessors.RawDSProcessor.

boolean org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.isPanelValid ( )

Indicates whether the settings in the selection and configuration panel are valid and complete.

Returns
True if the settings are valid and complete and the processor is ready to have its run method called, false otherwise.

Implemented in org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.ImageDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalDiskDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalFilesDSProcessor, and org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datasourceprocessors.RawDSProcessor.

void org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.reset ( )
void org.sleuthkit.autopsy.corecomponentinterfaces.DataSourceProcessor.run ( DataSourceProcessorProgressMonitor  progressMonitor,
DataSourceProcessorCallback  callback 
)

Adds a data source to the case database using a background task in a separate thread and the settings provided by the selection and configuration panel. Returns as soon as the background task is started. The background task uses a callback object to signal task completion and return results.

This method should not be called unless isPanelValid returns true.

Parameters
progressMonitorProgress monitor that will be used by the background task to report progress.
callbackCallback that will be used by the background task to return results.

Implemented in org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.ImageDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalDiskDSProcessor, org.sleuthkit.autopsy.casemodule.LocalFilesDSProcessor, and org.sleuthkit.autopsy.datasourceprocessors.RawDSProcessor.
