Subject [jira] Commented: (CAMEL-1077) tcp client mode / server mode determined by "to" or "from" elements limits usability.
Date Thu, 11 Dec 2008 13:03:05 GMT


James Strachan commented on CAMEL-1077:

Yeah - I think the client and server endpoints would act similar; you could route from them
or to them. Whether there are 4 (including async + sync) or whether sync/async mode is an
extension or configuration of the endpoint is maybe separate.

The main difference is the server endpoint would use the different connection establishment.



could then create a custom mina server with routing logic inside it. If folks send to "mina:server:localhost"
then it could use the connection details of the server endpoint to know how to basically create
a normal mina client producer to talk to the server's socket etc

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: camel-mina
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.0, 1.1.0, 1.2.0, 1.3.0, 1.4.0, 1.5.0

> Internally, 
> MinaProducer is coded to create a Mina connector (client mode socket).
> MinaConsumer is coded to create a Mina acceptor (server mode socket).
> Additionally, it appears a producer (client mode socket) is created for a "to" route
mapping and a consumer (server mode socket) is created for a "from" route mapping.
> This means an endpoint cannot be created in which the session is initiated by a client
and messages are routed "to" the client. 
> The opposite is also true, an endpoint with a "from" route mapping cannot establish a
connection to a tcp server.
> This is a major limitation, as we do not often have control over the systems with which
we are interfacing.
> Perhaps, the mina::tcp URI could have a parameter the sets the socket mode: tcp.mode=server
or tcp.mode=client.
> Hope this make sense, thanks!
