ManagedEsent Sample

A managed version of the ESENT sample application on the Windows SDK blog. This program creates a database with one table, inserts a record and then retrieves the data from the record.

open System
open System.Text
open Microsoft.Isam.Esent.Interop

let mutable instance = JET_INSTANCE.Nil
let mutable sesid = JET_SESID.Nil
let mutable dbid = JET_DBID.Nil
let mutable tableid = JET_TABLEID.Nil
let columndef = new JET_COLUMNDEF()

// Initialize ESENT. Setting JET_param.CircularLog to 1 means ESENT will automatically
// delete unneeded logfiles. JetInit will inspect the logfiles to see if the last
// shutdown was clean. If it wasn't (e.g. the application crashed) recovery will be
// run automatically bringing the database to a consistent state.
Api.JetCreateInstance(&instance, "instance")
ignore(Api.JetSetSystemParameter(instance, JET_SESID.Nil, JET_param.CircularLog, 1, null))
Api.JetBeginSession(instance, &sesid, null, null)

// Create the database. To open an existing database use the JetAttachDatabase and 
// JetOpenDatabase APIs.
Api.JetCreateDatabase(sesid, "edbtest.db", null, &dbid, CreateDatabaseGrbit.OverwriteExisting) 

// Create the table. Meta-data operations are transacted and can be performed concurrently.
// For example, one session can add a column to a table while another session is reading
// or updating records in the same table.
// This table has no indexes defined, so it will use the default sequential index. Indexes
// can be defined with the JetCreateIndex API.
Api.JetCreateTable(sesid, dbid, "table", 0, 100, &tableid)
columndef.coltyp <- JET_coltyp.LongText
columndef.cp <- JET_CP.ASCII
let columnid = Api.JetAddColumn(sesid, tableid, "column1", columndef, null, 0)
Api.JetCommitTransaction(sesid, CommitTransactionGrbit.LazyFlush)

// Insert a record. This table only has one column but a table can have slightly over 64,000
// columns defined. Unless a column is declared as fixed or variable it won't take any space
// in the record unless set. An individual record can have several hundred columns set at one
// time, the exact number depends on the database page size and the contents of the columns.
Api.JetPrepareUpdate(sesid, tableid, JET_prep.Insert)
let message = "Hello world"
Api.SetColumn(sesid, tableid, columnid, message, Encoding.ASCII)
Api.JetUpdate(sesid, tableid)
Api.JetCommitTransaction(sesid, CommitTransactionGrbit.None)    // Use JetRollback() to abort the transaction

// Retrieve a column from the record. Here we move to the first record with JetMove. By using
// JetMoveNext it is possible to iterate through all records in a table. Use JetMakeKey and
// JetSeek to move to a particular record.
Api.JetMove(sesid, tableid, JET_Move.First, MoveGrbit.None)
let buffer = Api.RetrieveColumnAsString(sesid, tableid, columnid, Encoding.ASCII)
Console.WriteLine("{0}", buffer)

// Terminate ESENT. This performs a clean shutdown.
Api.JetCloseTable(sesid, tableid)
Api.JetEndSession(sesid, EndSessionGrbit.None)
