The :class:`~pywbem_mock.MethodProvider` class provides the default
implementation of the ``InvokeMethod`` provider method by means of

The default implementation raises CIMError with CIM_ERR_METHOD_NOT_AVAILABLE,
because there is no meaningful default implementation of CIM methods.
A user-defined method provider implements this provider method. The method
description linked above provides a detailed definition of the input parameters,
return values, and required behavior.

The following example implements method ``Method1`` defined in class
``CIM_Foo_sub_sub`` that is defined as follows:

.. code-block:: text

        [Description ("Subclass of CIM_Foo_sub")]
    class CIM_Foo_sub_sub : CIM_Foo_sub {

        string cimfoo_sub_sub;

            [Description("Sample method with input and output parameters")]
        uint32 Method1(
            [IN ( false), OUT, Description("Response param 2")]
          string OutputParam2);

The example implementation of method ``Method1`` in the user-defined method
provider modifies the value of property ``cimfoo_sub_sub`` of the instance,
and returns it as its output parameter ``OutputParam2``:

.. code-block:: python

    from pywbem import CIMInstanceName, CIMError, \\
    from pywbem_mock import MethodProvider

    class MyMethodProvider(MethodProvider):

        provider_classnames = 'CIM_Foo_sub_sub'

        def InvokeMethod(self, methodname, localobject, params):

            if methodname.lower() == 'method1':
                if isinstance(localobject, CIMClassName):
                    raise CIMError(
                        "CIM method {0} must be invoked on a CIM instance".
                return self.Method1(localobject, params)
                raise CIMError(CIM_ERR_METHOD_NOT_AVAILABLE)

        def Method1(self, localobject, params):
            Implementation of CIM method 'Method1'.
            namespace = localobject.namespace
            instance_store = self.cimrepository.get_instance_store(namespace)

            # Get the instance the method was invoked on, from the CIM
            # repository (as a copy)
            instance = instance_store.get(localobject.path)  # a copy

            # Modify a property value in the local copy of the instance
            if 'cimfoo_sub_sub' not in
      ['cimfoo_sub_sub'] = 'new'
  ['cimfoo_sub_sub'] += '+'

            # Update the instance in the CIM repository from the changed
            # local instance
            instance_store.update(localobject.path, instance)

            # Return the property value in the output parameter
            outputparam2 =['cimfoo_sub_sub']
            out_params = [
                CIMParameter('OutputParam2', type='string', value=outputparam2),

            # Set the return value of the CIM method
            return_value = 0

            return (return_value, out_params)

Invoke a CIM method (static or dynamic) on a target CIM object (class or instance) in the CIM repository of the mock WBEM server. This default provider always raises CIMError(CIM_ERR_METHOD_NOT_FOUND) because there is no concept of a default method invocation behavior in in CIM (other than raising this error). A user-defined method provider is necessary to have a meaningful implementation of a method invocation. Validation already performed by the provider dispatcher that calls this provider method: - The provider method is called only for the registered class and namespace (only applies to user-defined providers). - The Python types of all input parameters to this provider method are as specified below. - The namespace exists in the CIM repository. - For instance-level use: - The creation class of the target instance exists in the namespace of the CIM repository. - The target instance exists in the namespace of the CIM repository. - The creation class of the target instance exposes the method to be invoked. - For class-level use: - The target class exists in the namespace of the CIM repository. - The target class exposes the method to be invoked. - The method exposed by the creation class is a static method as per its 'Static' qualifier. - The set of specified CIM method input parameters matches exactly the set of input parameters defined by the method in the CIM repository (as detected by their 'In' qualifier in the creation class), w.r.t. parameter name and type-related attributes (type, is_array, embedded_object). Validation that should be performed by this provider method: - MethodName is the name of a method the provider implements. - Constraints on the values of input parameters.

Returns: :class:`py:tuple` (return_value, out_params): The return value and output parameters of the method invocation: * return_value (:term:`CIM data type`): Return value of the method invocation. * out_params (:class:`` or :class:``): Output parameters of the method invocation.
