      • serve

        void serve(BlobKey blobKey,
                   HttpServletResponse response)
            throws java.io.IOException
        Arrange for the specified blob to be served as the response content for the current request. response should be uncommitted before invoking this method, and should be assumed to be committed after invoking it. Any content written before calling this method will be ignored. You may, however, append custom headers before or after calling this method.

        Range header will be automatically translated from the Content-Range header in the response.

        Parameters:
        blobKey - Blob-key to serve in response.
        response - HTTP response object.
        Throws:
        java.io.IOException - If an I/O error occurred.
        java.lang.IllegalStateException - If response was already committed.

            throws java.io.IOException
        Arrange for the specified blob to be served as the response content for the current request. response should be uncommitted before invoking this method, and should be assumed to be committed after invoking it. Any content written before calling this method will be ignored. You may, however, append custom headers before or after calling this method.

        This method will set the App Engine blob range header to serve a byte range of that blob.

        Parameters:
        blobKey - Blob-key to serve in response.

            throws java.io.IOException
        Arrange for the specified blob to be served as the response content for the current request. response should be uncommitted before invoking this method, and should be assumed to be committed after invoking it. Any content written before calling this method will be ignored. You may, however, append custom headers before or after calling this method.

        This method will set the App Engine blob range header to the content specified.

        ByteRange getByteRange(HttpServletRequest request)
        Get byte range from the request.
        Parameters:
        request - HTTP request object.
        Returns:
        Byte range as parsed from the HTTP range header. null if there is no header.
        Throws:
        RangeFormatException - Unable to parse header because of invalid format.
        UnsupportedRangeFormatException - Header is a valid HTTP range header, the specific form is not supported by app engine. This includes unit types other than "bytes" and multiple ranges.
      • delete

        void delete(BlobKey... blobKeys)

      • getUploadedBlobs

        @Deprecated
        java.util.Map<java.lang.String,BlobKey> getUploadedBlobs(HttpServletRequest request)
        Deprecated. Use getUploads(HttpServletRequest) instead. Note that getUploadedBlobs does not handle cases where blobs have been uploaded using the multiple="true" attribute of the file input form element.
        Returns the BlobKey for any files that were uploaded, keyed by the upload form "name" field.

        This method should only be called from within a request served by the destination of a createUploadUrl call.

        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalStateException - If not called from a blob upload callback request.
      • getUploads

        java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.util.List<BlobKey>> getUploads(HttpServletRequest request)
        Returns the BlobKey for any files that were uploaded, keyed by the upload form "name" field. This method should only be called from within a request served by the destination of a createUploadUrl call.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalStateException - If not called from a blob upload callback request.

        getBlobInfos(HttpServletRequest), getFileInfos(HttpServletRequest)
      • getBlobInfos

        java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.util.List<BlobInfo>> getBlobInfos(HttpServletRequest request)
        Returns the BlobInfo for any files that were uploaded, keyed by the upload form "name" field. This method should only be called from within a request served by the destination of a createUploadUrl call.
        Throws:

      • getFileInfos

        java.util.Map<java.lang.String,java.util.List<FileInfo>> getFileInfos(HttpServletRequest request)
        Returns the FileInfo for any files that were uploaded, keyed by the upload form "name" field. This method should only be called from within a request served by the destination of a createUploadUrl call. Prefer this method over getBlobInfos or getUploads if uploading files to Cloud Storage, as the FileInfo contains the name of the created filename in Cloud Storage.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalStateException - If not called from a blob upload callback request.

      • fetchData

        byte[] fetchData(BlobKey blobKey,
                         long startIndex,
                         long endIndex)
        Get fragment from specified blob.
        Parameters:
        blobKey - Blob-key from which to fetch data.
        startIndex - Start index of data to fetch.
        endIndex - End index (inclusive) of data to fetch.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - If blob not found, indexes are negative, indexes are inverted or fetch size is too large.
        java.lang.SecurityException - If the application does not have acces to the blob.
        BlobstoreFailureException - If an error occurred while communicating with the blobstore.
      • createGsBlobKey

        BlobKey createGsBlobKey(java.lang.String filename)
        Create a BlobKey for a Google Storage File. The existance of the file represented by filename is not checked, hence a BlobKey can be created for a file that does not currently exist. You can safely persist the BlobKey generated by this function.

        The created BlobKey can then be used as a parameter in API methods that can support objects in Google Storage, for example serve.

        Parameters:
        filename - The Google Storage filename. The filename must be in the format "/gs/bucket_name/object_name".
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - If the filename does not have the prefix "/gs/".
