IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance - Application instance that represents consumption of the limited resource.


Version 1.0.3


This module represents one instance of an application managed by IPC::Concurrency::DBI.

See the documentation of IPC::Concurrency::DBI for more information.

        my $instance = $concurrent_program->start_instance();
        unless ( defined( $instance ) )
                print "Too many instances of $0 are already running.\n";
        # [...] Do some work.
        # Now that the application is about to exit, flag the instance as completed.
        # (note: this is implicit when $instance is destroyed).



Create a new IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance object.

This function should not be called directly and its API could change, instead use IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::start_instance().

        # Retrieve the application by name.
        my $instance = IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application::Instance->new(
                application => $application,

'application': mandatory, an IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application object.


Declare that the current instance has finished running and free the slot for a new instance.



Returns the database handle used for this queue.

        my $database_handle = $concurrency_manager->_get_database_handle();


Returns the parent IPC::Concurrency::DBI::Application object.

        my $application = $instance->_get_application();


Automatically clear the slot used by the current instance when the object is destroyed, if finish() has not been called already.
