ManagedObjectController<InstanceType extends ManagedObject> class Null safety

A Controller that implements basic CRUD operations for a ManagedObject.

Instances of this class map a REST API call directly to a database Query. For example, this Controller handles an HTTP PUT request by executing an update Query; the path variable in the request indicates the value of the primary key for the updated row and the HTTP request body are the values updated.

When routing to a ManagedObjectController, you must provide the following route pattern, where

  router.route("/<name>/[:id]")

You may optionally use the static method ManagedObjectController.routePattern to create this string for you.

The mapping for HTTP request to action is as follows:

  • GET /
  • PUT /
  • DELETE /
  • POST /
  • GET /

You may use this class without subclassing, but you may also subclass it to modify the executed Query prior to its execution, or modify the returned Response after the query has been completed.

The HTTP response body is encoded according to responseContentType.

GET requests with no path parameter can take extra query parameters to modify the request. The following are the available query parameters:

  • count (integer): restricts the number of objects fetched to count. By default, this is null, which means no restrictions.
  • offset (integer): offsets the fetch by offset amount of objects. By default, this is null, which means no offset.
  • pageBy (string): indicates the key in which to page by. See Query.pageBy for more information on paging. If this value is passed as part of the query, either pageAfter or pagePrior must also be passed, but only one of those.
  • pageAfter (string): indicates the page value and direction of the paging. pageBy must also be set. See Query.pageBy for more information.
  • pagePrior (string): indicates the page value and direction of the paging. pageBy must also be set. See Query.pageBy for more information.
  • sortBy (string): indicates the sort order. The syntax is 'sortBy=key,order' where key is a property of InstanceType and order is either 'asc' or 'desc'. You may specify multiple sortBy parameters.
