A dictionary store is a store where all streams are accessed through a UID, rather than directly by stream ID.
A dictionary store contains streams in the usual way but, in addition, the root stream is a stream dictionary. That is, the external representation of a CStreamDictionary object is a list of two-way associations between UIDs and stream ids.
The following diagram illustrates the concept of the dictionary store.
The interface to a dictionary store is provided by the CDictionaryStore abstract class. The classes for concrete dictionary stores are derived from this abstract class; for example, CDictionaryFileStore is a concrete dictionary store class which is implemented using a file store.
Note that a dictionary store does not derive from CStreamStore , but owns a persistent store, a CPersistentStore type, and a stream dictionary, a CStreamDictionary type, as part of its implementation.
