Subject initializing TMemoryBuffer in C++
Date Thu, 31 Oct 2013 01:36:38 GMT

I'm having trouble initializing a TMemoryBuffer with contents. I serialized an object (a ContactsList
object) with TCompactProtocol and then wrote it out as a file to disk. Now, I'm trying to
read that file and create the same object, but it appears that when I call the object's .read()
function, it says "No more data to read." I suspect that I did not correctly initialize the
TMemoryBuffer with anything. Here is what I'm doing:

// contacts_bin is a std::string that is read in from disk and is a binary string encoded
with TCompactProtocol)
// contacts_bin_copy is a copy of contacts_bin except it's a char* instead of a std::string.
ContactsList object;
shared_ptr<TMemoryBuffer> transportIn(new TMemoryBuffer((unsigned char*)contacts_bin_copy,
shared_ptr<TCompactProtocol> protocolIn(new TCompactProtocol(transportIn));;

So, I am creating a new TMemoryBuffer by providing a string and the size of that string to
the constructor. I might not be doing it right, which is why I'm getting problems. Might the
buffer have nothing in it because I did not change the memory policy to COPY? If that's the
case, what's the correct code that will do it?
