Detailed Description

Base class for MPS object servers.

The dispatcher here reads a message, takes the first int from it, and uses it to index into a list of request-handler function pointers, which then further deconstruct the incoming message, call their implementation object, and fill in a reply message, which is sent along the Connection by the InterfaceServer::dispatch() method.

Member Typedef Documentation

typedef void(* MPS::InterfaceServer::request_handler_t)(ref< Interface > const &__impl, InputStream &__input, OutputStream &__output)

This is the type that each method in the MPS automatically-generated server-glue should have.

The __impl parameter is used to pass down a handle on the implementation object; the __input and __output parameters are used for communication with the client.

Request handlers that do not wish to send a reply message containing any data (ie. void-typed methods) should not fill in any bytes in __output. The dispatch() method below takes this as an indication of a void response.

__impl   the implementation object this method is operating on
__input   the input message
__output   the reply message
