46// The following routines allow the browser to aggressively cleanup NPObjects
47// on a per plugin basis.  All NPObjects used through the NPRuntime API should
48// be "registered" while they are alive.  After an object has been
49// deleted, it is possible for Javascript to have a reference to that object
50// which has not yet been garbage collected.  Javascript access to NPObjects
51// will reference this registry to determine if the object is accessible or
52// not.
53
54// Windows introduces an additional complication for objects created by the
55// plugin.  Plugins load inside of a DLL.  Each DLL has it's own heap.  If
56// the browser unloads the plugin DLL, all objects created within the DLL's
57// heap instantly become invalid.  Normally, when WebKit drops the reference
58// on the top-level plugin object, it tells the plugin manager that the
59// plugin can be destroyed, which can unload the DLL.  So, we must eliminate
60// all pointers to any object ever created by the plugin.
61
62// We generally associate NPObjects with an owner.  The owner of an NPObject
63// is an NPObject which, when destroyed, also destroys all objects it owns.
64// For example, if an NPAPI plugin creates 10 sub-NPObjects, all 11 objects
65// (the NPAPI plugin + its 10 sub-objects) should become inaccessible
66// simultaneously.
67
68// The ownership hierarchy is flat, and not a tree.  Imagine the following
69// object creation:
70//     PluginObject
71//          |
72//          +-- Creates -----> Object1
73//                                |
74//                                +-- Creates -----> Object2
75//
76// PluginObject will be the "owner" for both Object1 and Object2.
77
78// Register an NPObject with the runtime.  If the owner is NULL, the
79// object is treated as an owning object.  If owner is not NULL,
80// this object will be registered as owned by owner's top-level owner.
81void _NPN_RegisterObject(NPObject*, NPObject* owner);
82
83// Unregister an NPObject with the runtime.  If obj is an owning
84// object, this call will also unregister all of the owned objects.
85void _NPN_UnregisterObject(NPObject*);

87// Check to see if an object is registered with the runtime.
