Subject Re: [mina] MINA server design question
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2005 16:24:24 GMT
Thanks for the reply. What I am struggling to understand is, in my MINA
server protocol handler when I get a response back from milage server {i.e.
I am inside messageReceived(ProtocolSession session, Object message) method
} the session object represents session between MINA server and milage
server. But I need to write received message back to session between MINA
server and the calling clients {i.e inbound connections to MINA server}.
How do I do that?
If I just write it to the session that I've received, isn't it writing to
the milage server?
Hope this make sense or am I totally lost.

Hi Karim,

I apologize for my late reply.  I almost forgot to reply.

  What I am trying to implement is, provide a MINA server. The MINA server
  will be client of a  third party TCP/IP socket milage server that serves
  milage calculation. It accepts TCP/IP socket requests in ASCII form on
  multiple ports. The way it works is, client opens a connection, it
  that connection is ok. Then client send milage calculation request and it
  sends multi-line response. The connection between client(in this case
  server) and milage server never gets disconnected. On that open
  it keeps serving. The reason it does that is to avoid cost of opening a

I see.  You can do that with MINA.

  Now in the attached code I've done some POC. It is a mixture of sumup and
  reverse example. As you can see that it opens a new connection for every
  request. Now my questions to you are;

  1. How do I keep the connection between MINA server and milage server
  open and keep sending new milage requests on that same opened connection?

Connection is not closed if you don't call session.close(), so you don't
need to worry about that.

  2. How does MINA server works with multiple ports on milage server?

You can bind same protocol provider to more than one ports.  Just call
Acceptor.bind() as many times as you want.

  3. How does the connection pooling and thread management will be working
  between MINA server and milage server? Also between MINA server and its
  clients (in my case these may be EJB calls)?

 We use leader-followers thread pool.  It keeps the order of events fired
sequential not compromising performance.  More than one threads can handle
one connection because threads are reused for all connections.  So you
cannot use any mechanism that uses Thread.currentThread() as a key such as
ThreadLocal.  But MINA provides user-defined attributes in Session.  Please
take a look at IoSession.get/setAttribute().

I didn't look into your code yet.  Please let me know my reply is not
sufficient.  I'll take a look at the code and answer again.
