Class Parcel

java.lang.Object
  extended by android.os.Parcel

public final class Parcel
extends Object

Container for a message (data and object references) that can be sent through an IBinder. A Parcel can contain both flattened data that will be unflattened on the other side of the IPC (using the various methods here for writing specific types, or the general Parcelable interface), and references to live IBinder objects that will result in the other side receiving a proxy IBinder connected with the original IBinder in the Parcel.

Parcel is not a general-purpose serialization mechanism. This class (and the corresponding Parcelable API for placing arbitrary objects into a Parcel) is designed as a high-performance IPC transport. As such, it is not appropriate to place any Parcel data in to persistent storage: changes in the underlying implementation of any of the data in the Parcel can render older data unreadable.

The bulk of the Parcel API revolves around reading and writing data of various types. There are six major classes of such functions available.

Primitives

The most basic data functions are for writing and reading primitive data types: writeByte(byte), readByte(), writeDouble(double), readDouble(), writeFloat(float), readFloat(), writeInt(int), readInt(), writeLong(long), readLong(), writeString(java.lang.String), readString(). Most other data operations are built on top of these. The given data is written and read using the endianess of the host CPU.

Primitive Arrays

There are a variety of methods for reading and writing raw arrays of primitive objects, which generally result in writing a 4-byte length followed by the primitive data items. The methods for reading can either read the data into an existing array, or create and return a new array. These available types are:

Parcelables

The Parcelable protocol provides an extremely efficient (but low-level) protocol for objects to write and read themselves from Parcels. You can use the direct methods writeParcelable(Parcelable, int) and readParcelable(ClassLoader) or writeParcelableArray(T[], int) and readParcelableArray(ClassLoader) to write or read. These methods write both the class type and its data to the Parcel, allowing that class to be reconstructed from the appropriate class loader when later reading.

There are also some methods that provide a more efficient way to work with Parcelables: writeTypedArray(T[], int), writeTypedList(List), readTypedArray(T[], android.os.Parcelable.Creator) and readTypedList(java.util.List, android.os.Parcelable.Creator). These methods do not write the class information of the original object: instead, the caller of the read function must know what type to expect and pass in the appropriate Parcelable.Creator instead to properly construct the new object and read its data. (To more efficient write and read a single Parceable object, you can directly call Parcelable.writeToParcel and Parcelable.Creator.createFromParcel yourself.)

Bundles

A special type-safe container, called Bundle, is available for key/value maps of heterogeneous values. This has many optimizations for improved performance when reading and writing data, and its type-safe API avoids difficult to debug type errors when finally marshalling the data contents into a Parcel. The methods to use are writeBundle(Bundle), readBundle(), and readBundle(ClassLoader).

Active Objects

An unusual feature of Parcel is the ability to read and write active objects. For these objects the actual contents of the object is not written, rather a special token referencing the object is written. When reading the object back from the Parcel, you do not get a new instance of the object, but rather a handle that operates on the exact same object that was originally written. There are two forms of active objects available.

Binder objects are a core facility of Android's general cross-process communication system. The IBinder interface describes an abstract protocol with a Binder object. Any such interface can be written in to a Parcel, and upon reading you will receive either the original object implementing that interface or a special proxy implementation that communicates calls back to the original object. The methods to use are writeStrongBinder(IBinder), writeStrongInterface(IInterface), readStrongBinder(), writeBinderArray(IBinder[]), readBinderArray(IBinder[]), createBinderArray(), writeBinderList(List), readBinderList(List), createBinderArrayList().

FileDescriptor objects, representing raw Linux file descriptor identifiers, can be written and ParcelFileDescriptor objects returned to operate on the original file descriptor. The returned file descriptor is a dup of the original file descriptor: the object and fd is different, but operating on the same underlying file stream, with the same position, etc. The methods to use are writeFileDescriptor(FileDescriptor), readFileDescriptor().

Untyped Containers

A final class of methods are for writing and reading standard Java containers of arbitrary types. These all revolve around the writeValue(Object) and readValue(ClassLoader) methods which define the types of objects allowed. The container methods are writeArray(Object[]), readArray(ClassLoader), writeList(List), readList(List, ClassLoader), readArrayList(ClassLoader), writeMap(Map), readMap(Map, ClassLoader), writeSparseArray(SparseArray), readSparseArray(ClassLoader).

Field Detail

STRING_CREATOR

public static final Parcelable.Creator<String> STRING_CREATOR
Method Detail

obtain

public static Parcel obtain()
Retrieve a new Parcel object from the pool.


recycle

public final void recycle()
Put a Parcel object back into the pool. You must not touch the object after this call.


dataSize

public final int dataSize()
Returns the total amount of data contained in the parcel.


dataAvail

public final int dataAvail()
Returns the amount of data remaining to be read from the parcel. That is, dataSize()-dataPosition().


dataPosition

public final int dataPosition()
Returns the current position in the parcel data. Never more than dataSize().


dataCapacity

public final int dataCapacity()
Returns the total amount of space in the parcel. This is always >= dataSize(). The difference between it and dataSize() is the amount of room left until the parcel needs to re-allocate its data buffer.


setDataSize

public final void setDataSize(int size)
Change the amount of data in the parcel. Can be either smaller or larger than the current size. If larger than the current capacity, more memory will be allocated.

Parameters:
size - The new number of bytes in the Parcel.

setDataPosition

public final void setDataPosition(int pos)
Move the current read/write position in the parcel.

Parameters:
pos - New offset in the parcel; must be between 0 and dataSize().

setDataCapacity

public final void setDataCapacity(int size)
Change the capacity (current available space) of the parcel.

Parameters:
size - The new capacity of the parcel, in bytes. Can not be less than dataSize() -- that is, you can not drop existing data with this method.

marshall

public final byte[] marshall()
Returns the raw bytes of the parcel.

The data you retrieve here must not be placed in any kind of persistent storage (on local disk, across a network, etc). For that, you should use standard serialization or another kind of general serialization mechanism. The Parcel marshalled representation is highly optimized for local IPC, and as such does not attempt to maintain compatibility with data created in different versions of the platform.


unmarshall

public final void unmarshall(byte[] data,
                             int offest,
                             int length)
Set the bytes in data to be the raw bytes of this Parcel.


appendFrom

public final void appendFrom(Parcel parcel,
                             int offset,
                             int length)

hasFileDescriptors

public final boolean hasFileDescriptors()
Report whether the parcel contains any marshalled file descriptors.


writeInterfaceToken

public final void writeInterfaceToken(String interfaceName)
Store or read an IBinder interface token in the parcel at the current dataPosition(). This is used to validate that the marshalled transaction is intended for the target interface.


enforceInterface

public final void enforceInterface(String interfaceName)

writeByteArray

public final void writeByteArray(byte[] b)
Write a byte array into the parcel at the current {#link #dataPosition}, growing dataCapacity() if needed.

Parameters:
b - Bytes to place into the parcel.

writeByteArray

public final void writeByteArray(byte[] b,
                                 int offset,
                                 int len)
Write an byte array into the parcel at the current {#link #dataPosition}, growing dataCapacity() if needed.

Parameters:
b - Bytes to place into the parcel.
offset - Index of first byte to be written.
len - Number of bytes to write.

writeInt

public final void writeInt(int val)
Write an integer value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeLong

public final void writeLong(long val)
Write a long integer value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeFloat

public final void writeFloat(float val)
Write a floating point value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeDouble

public final void writeDouble(double val)
Write a double precision floating point value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeString

public final void writeString(String val)
Write a string value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeStrongBinder

public final void writeStrongBinder(IBinder val)
Write an object into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeStrongInterface

public final void writeStrongInterface(IInterface val)
Write an object into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeFileDescriptor

public final void writeFileDescriptor(FileDescriptor val)
Write a FileDescriptor into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeByte

public final void writeByte(byte val)
Write an byte value into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeMap

public final void writeMap(Map val)
Please use writeBundle(android.os.Bundle) instead. Flattens a Map into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed. The Map keys must be String objects. The Map values are written using writeValue(java.lang.Object) and must follow the specification there.

It is strongly recommended to use writeBundle(android.os.Bundle) instead of this method, since the Bundle class provides a type-safe API that allows you to avoid mysterious type errors at the point of marshalling.


writeBundle

public final void writeBundle(Bundle val)
Flatten a Bundle into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed.


writeList

public final void writeList(List val)

writeArray

public final void writeArray(Object[] val)
Flatten an Object array into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed. The array values are written using writeValue(java.lang.Object) and must follow the specification there.


writeSparseArray

public final void writeSparseArray(SparseArray<Object> val)
Flatten a generic SparseArray into the parcel at the current dataPosition(), growing dataCapacity() if needed. The SparseArray values are written using writeValue(java.lang.Object) and must follow the specification there.

writeTypedList

public final <T extends Parcelable> void writeTypedList(List<T> val)
Flatten a List containing a particular object type into the parcel, at the current dataPosition() and growing dataCapacity() if needed. The type of the objects in the list must be one that implements Parcelable. Unlike the generic writeList() method, however, only the raw data of the objects is written and not their type, so you must use the corresponding readTypedList() to unmarshall them.

Parameters:
val - The list of objects to be written.
See Also:
createTypedArrayList(android.os.Parcelable.Creator), readTypedList(java.util.List, android.os.Parcelable.Creator), Parcelable

writeStringList

public final void writeStringList(List<String> val)
Flatten a List containing String objects into the parcel, at the current dataPosition() and growing dataCapacity() if needed. They can later be retrieved with createStringArrayList() or readStringList(java.util.List).

Parameters:
val - The list of strings to be written.
See Also:
createStringArrayList(), readStringList(java.util.List)

writeBinderList

public final void writeBinderList(List<IBinder> val)
Flatten a List containing IBinder objects into the parcel, at the current dataPosition() and growing dataCapacity() if needed. They can later be retrieved with createBinderArrayList() or readBinderList(java.util.List).

Parameters:
val - The list of strings to be written.
See Also:
createBinderArrayList(), readBinderList(java.util.List)

writeTypedArray

public final <T extends Parcelable> void writeTypedArray(T[] val,
                                                         int parcelableFlags)
Flatten a heterogeneous array containing a particular object type into the parcel, at the current dataPosition() and growing dataCapacity() if needed. The type of the objects in the array must be one that implements Parcelable. Unlike the writeParcelableArray(T[], int) method, however, only the raw data of the objects is written and not their type, so you must use readTypedArray(T[], android.os.Parcelable.Creator) with the correct corresponding Parcelable.Creator implementation to unmarshall them.

Parameters:
val - The array of objects to be written.
parcelableFlags - Contextual flags as per Parcelable.writeToParcel().
See Also:
readTypedArray(T[], android.os.Parcelable.Creator), writeParcelableArray(T[], int), Parcelable.Creator

writeValue

public final void writeValue(Object v)
Flatten a generic object in to a parcel. The given Object value may currently be one of the following types:


writeParcelable

public final void writeParcelable(Parcelable p,
                                  int parcelableFlags)
Flatten the name of the class of the Parcelable and its contents into the parcel.

Parameters:
p - The Parcelable object to be written.
parcelableFlags - Contextual flags as per Parcelable.writeToParcel().

writeSerializable

public final void writeSerializable(Serializable s)
Write a generic serializable object in to a Parcel. It is strongly recommended that this method be avoided, since the serialization overhead is extremely large, and this approach will be much slower than using the other approaches to writing data in to a Parcel.


writeException

public final void writeException(Exception e)
Special function for writing an exception result at the header of a parcel, to be used when returning an exception from a transaction. Note that this currently only supports a few exception types; any other exception will be re-thrown by this function as a RuntimeException (to be caught by the system's last-resort exception handling when dispatching a transaction).

The supported exception types are:

Parameters:
e - The Exception to be written.
See Also:
writeNoException(), readException()

writeNoException

public final void writeNoException()
Special function for writing information at the front of the Parcel indicating that no exception occurred.

See Also:
writeException(java.lang.Exception), readException()

readException

public final void readException()
Special function for reading an exception result from the header of a parcel, to be used after receiving the result of a transaction. This will throw the exception for you if it had been written to the Parcel, otherwise return and let you read the normal result data from the Parcel.

See Also:
writeException(java.lang.Exception), writeNoException()

readException

public final void readException(int code,
                                String msg)

Write a heterogeneous array of Parcelable objects into the Parcel. Each object in the array is written along with its class name, so that the correct class can later be instantiated. As a result, this has significantly more overhead than writeTypedArray(T[], int), but will correctly handle an array containing more than one type of object.

Parameters:
value - The array of objects to be written.
parcelableFlags - Contextual flags as per Parcelable.writeToParcel().
See Also:
writeTypedArray(T[], int)

readValue

public final Object readValue(ClassLoader loader)

readParcelable

public final <T extends Parcelable> T readParcelable(ClassLoader loader)
Read and return a new Parcelable from the parcel. The given class loader will be used to load any enclosed Parcelables. If it is null, the default class loader will be used.

Parameters:
loader - A ClassLoader from which to instantiate the Parcelable object, or null for the default class loader.
Returns:
Returns the newly created Parcelable, or null if a null object has been written.
Throws:
BadParcelableException - Throws BadParcelableException if there was an error trying to instantiate the Parcelable.

readParcelableArray

public final Parcelable[] readParcelableArray(ClassLoader loader)
Read and return a new Parcelable array from the parcel. The given class loader will be used to load any enclosed Parcelables.

Returns:
the Parcelable array, or null if the array is null

readSerializable

public final Serializable readSerializable()
Read and return a new Serializable object from the parcel.

Returns:

obtain

protected static final Parcel obtain(int obj)

finalize

protected void finalize()
                 throws Throwable
Description copied from class: Object
Called by the virtual machine when there are no longer any (non-weak) references to the receiver. Subclasses can use this facility to guarantee that any associated resources are cleaned up before the receiver is garbage collected. Uncaught exceptions which are thrown during the running of the method cause it to terminate immediately, but are otherwise ignored.

Note: The virtual machine assumes that the implementation in class Object is empty.

Overrides:
finalize in class Object
Throws:
Throwable - The virtual machine ignores any exceptions which are thrown during finalization.
