Subject [mina] Blocks Extensible Exchange Protocol (BEEP)
Date Fri, 23 Dec 2005 23:04:15 GMT

We are using BEEP in an application (see  
Unfortunately, the BEEP library we use proved to be unstable and the  
development of it seems very slow. So naturally, I'm looking for  
alternatives (that's were Mina comes into play). The core building  
blocks of BEEP fit our application quite well (that's one reason we'd  
like to keep the BEEP foundation).

BEEP allows to open several 'channels' over one 'session' (in the TCP  
mapping of BEEP this results in multiple channels beeing multiplexed  
over one single TCP connection). For each channel, there is a so  
called 'profile', which specifies the messages exchanged over a  
channel. The profile used on the first channel (channel 0) defines  
messages used to create and close channels.

As far as I can tell, there is no such thing as channels in Mina. I  
guess it would be possible to implement BEEP on top of Mina. Has ever  
anybody thought about doing so? Or would that be a 'stupid  
idea' (tm)? Any ideas?
