Constructor & Destructor Documentation

org.sleuthkit.autopsy.ingest.events.BlackboardPostEvent.BlackboardPostEvent ( ModuleDataEvent  eventData)

Constructs an 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 ModuleDataEvent object containing the data associated with the blackboard post.

Putting a serializable data holding object into oldValue to allow for lazy loading of the ModuleDataEvent object for remote events. This bypasses the issues related to the serialization and de-serialization of BlackboardArtifact objects when the event is published over a network.

Member Function Documentation

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

Gets the legacy ModuleDataEvent object associated with this event.

Returns
The ModuleDataEvent.

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 ModuleDataEvent object bypasses the issues related to the serialization and de-serialization of BlackboardArtifact 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.
