google.appengine.api.request_info module

Summary

Allows API stubs to access request and system state when handling calls.

Certain API stubs require access to information about the request that triggered the API call (e.g. user_service_stub needs to know the host name of the request to generate continuation URLs) or system state (e.g. modules_stub).

Other stubs (e.g. taskqueue_stub, channel_stub) need to be able to dispatch requests within the system.

An instance of a RequestInfo subclass is passed to stubs that require these capabilities.

Provides information about and dispatches requests to modules.

add_async_request(method, relative_url, headers, body, source_ip, module_name=None, version=None, instance_id=None)source

Dispatch an HTTP request asynchronously.

Parameters
  • method -- A str containing the HTTP method of the request.

  • relative_url -- A str containing path and query string of the request.

  • headers -- A list of (key, value) tuples where key and value are both str.

  • body -- A str containing the request body.

  • source_ip -- The source ip address for the request.

  • module_name -- An optional str containing the module name to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to the default module.

  • version -- An optional str containing the version to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to the default version.

  • instance_id -- An optional str containing the instance_id of the instance to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to according to the load-balancing for the module and version.

add_event(runnable, eta, service=None, event_id=None)source

Add a callable to be run at the specified time.

Parameters
  • runnable -- A callable object to call at the specified time.

  • eta -- An int containing the time to run the event, in seconds since the epoch.

  • service -- A str containing the name of the service that owns this event. This should be set if event_id is set.

  • event_id -- A str containing the id of the event. If set, this can be passed to update_event to change the time at which the event should run.

add_request(method, relative_url, headers, body, source_ip, module_name=None, version=None, instance_id=None)source

Process an HTTP request.

Parameters
  • method -- A str containing the HTTP method of the request.

  • relative_url -- A str containing path and query string of the request.

  • headers -- A list of (key, value) tuples where key and value are both str.

  • body -- A str containing the request body.

  • source_ip -- The source ip address for the request.

  • module_name -- An optional str containing the module name to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to the default module.

  • version -- An optional str containing the version to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to the default version.

  • instance_id -- An optional str containing the instance_id of the instance to service this request. If unset, the request will be dispatched to according to the load-balancing for the module and version.
