The following protocols are available globally.

  • Objects of types which conform to RLMThreadConfined can be managed by a Realm, which will make them bound to a thread-specific RLMRealm instance. Managed objects must be explicitly exported and imported to be passed between threads.

    Managed instances of objects conforming to this protocol can be converted to a thread-safe reference for transport between threads by passing to the +[RLMThreadSafeReference referenceWithThreadConfined:] constructor.

    Note that only types defined by Realm can meaningfully conform to this protocol, and defining new classes which attempt to conform to it will not make them work with RLMThreadSafeReference.
