BMLTiOSLib

public class BMLTiOSLib : NSObject

This class represents the public interface to the BMLTiOSLib framework.

This class needs to be instantiated with a URI to a valid Root Server (the same URI used to log in), and a BMLTiOSLibDelegate object.

Instantiation immediately starts a communication process, and the result will be reflected in the delegate’s bmltLibInstance(_:BMLTiOSLib,serverIsValid:Bool) callback.

If this instance fails to connect to a valid Root Server, it should be deleted, and reinstantiated for a new connection.

Once a connection is established, the HTTP session is maintained until the instance is deinstantiated.

The session is required to be maintained for Semantic Administration. You cannot share a session across instances of BMLTiOSLib.

    Return Value

    a reference to an object that follows the BMLTiOSLibDelegate protocol.

  • This is the default initializer. This is required. You need to supply a valid URI and a valid delegate.

    After this is called, the BMLTiOSLib attempts to connect to the Root Server.

    IMPORTANT: YOU SHOULD NOT DO ANYTHING MORE WITH THIS BMLTiOSLib INSTANCE UNTIL THE DELEGATE CALLBACK IS INVOKED!

    The callback is the bmltLibInstance(_:BMLTiOSLib,serverIsValid:Bool) method in your delegate instance.

    You need to wait until this callback is invoked with serverIsValid set to true.

    If serverIsValid is false, then this instance of BMLTiOSLib is no longer usable, and should be discarded.

    Each instance of BMLTiOSLib has a lifetime associated with its HTTPS connection session.
