Instance specific extensions, are extension that only a single instance of a
module may access. They are invisible to all other modules; they are private
to this instance so to speak.
As they are only of value to a certain instance, this instance knows very
well when it needs them and when it does not need them any longer (usually
when a transaction passes through a module for the last time). It does not
have to care if anyone else in the system may still have a reference to the
transaction as this one is not able to access the extension anyway.
Therefore the instance is obliged to call set_extension when it wants to add a
private extension and clear_extension when it does not need it any more.
To get access to an instance specifc extension the module must own a so called
instance_specific_extension_accessor that provides the exclusive access rights.
Assuming the instance_specific_extension_accessor of a given module is called
m_accessor and the transaction of which the private extension is about to be
accessed is called txn, then the calls have to be
The owner of the private extension is responsible to allocate/deallocate
the extension before/after setting/clearing the extension.
