Class BinaryCodec

All Implemented Interfaces:

public final class BinaryCodec extends Object implements MessageCodec<ByteBuffer>
A MessageCodec using unencoded binary messages, represented as ByteBuffers.

This codec is guaranteed to be compatible with the corresponding BinaryCodec on the Dart side. These parts of the Flutter SDK are evolved synchronously.

On the Dart side, messages are represented using ByteData.

    • encodeMessage

      public ByteBuffer encodeMessage(@Nullable ByteBuffer message)
      Description copied from interface: MessageCodec
      Encodes the specified message into binary.
      Specified by:
      encodeMessage in interface MessageCodec<ByteBuffer>
      message - the T message, possibly null.
      a ByteBuffer containing the encoding between position 0 and the current position, or null, if message is null.
    • decodeMessage

      public ByteBuffer decodeMessage(@Nullable ByteBuffer message)
      Description copied from interface: MessageCodec
      Decodes the specified message from binary.

      Warning: The ByteBuffer is "direct" and it won't be valid beyond this call. Storing the ByteBuffer and using it later and will lead to a java.nio.BufferUnderflowException. If you want to retain the data you'll need to copy it.

      Specified by:
      decodeMessage in interface MessageCodec<ByteBuffer>
      message - the ByteBuffer message, possibly null.
      a T value representation of the bytes between the given buffer's current position and its limit, or null, if message is null.
