Subject [jira] Created: (AVRO-405) Netty-based Java RPC server
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2010 22:46:27 GMT
Netty-based Java RPC server

                 Key: AVRO-405
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-405
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: java
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
            Assignee: Todd Lipcon

A nonblocking RPC server based on Netty should be more scalable than the current implementation.

We should provide two mechanisms for interfacing the RPC server to the implementations:

1) "Blocking" RPC implementations run inside a worker threadpool. Implementators would not
know that they're working in a non-blocking context.
2) "Event-driven" RPC implementations that receive requests and some kind of request context.
They are responsible for eventually calling context.respond(response) or somesuch. This would
allow more scalable interaction with downstream services.

I propose we focus on (1) first.
