Detailed Description

implicitly supports a local registry and a read-only system registry for global information.

In the context of this service, the functions open, close, and destroy from XSimpleRegistry are not supported and throw an exception if they are used.

Functions of XSimpleRegistry:

returns the name of the local registry.
checks if the local registry is valid. If the interface is not NULL the local registry should always be valid.
checks if the local registry has write protection.
merges all information from the specified registry in the local registry.
returns a virtual rootkey of both registries.

Functions of XRegistryKey:

returns a virtual key which is specified in the local or the system registry.
deletes the key only if it is present in the local registry.
setLongValue, setAsciiValue, setStringValue, setBinaryValue
sets the value at the specified key in the local registry.
getLongValue, getAsciiValue, getStringValue, getBinaryValue
returns the value at the specified key in the local registry, or if the value is not present in the local registry, it will return the value of the system registry.
returns a sequence of all subkeys in both registries.
returns a sequence with the names of all subkeys in both registries.
Note: all write functions only work on the local registry.

How to find the registries:

search for the system registry:
The system registry will always be searched in the same directory as the executable. The name of the system registry is "applicat.rdb". If the system registry was not found, then the environment variable STAR_REGISTRY will be checked. If this variable was set, it must contain a full path to a valid system registry.
Search for the user registry using the following rules:
  1. 1. (for further use) search in sversion.ini (.sversionrc) for an entry REGISTRY_VERSION_STRING (example: UserRegistry 5.0/505=test.rdb) in the section [Registry]. If found, then take this value instead of "user.rdb" as "REGISTRY NAME".
  2. 2. Search in the config directory of the user for a file "REGISTRY NAME". If found, return the full path and name of the file. If not found, retry this step with a dot before "REGISTRY NAME".
  3. 3. If not found, a new user registry with name user.rdb will be created in the user config directory.
