Hi Niklas,

I suggested this some time ago. As Mina is asynchronous, this leads indeed to
state-based protocol handler.

It would be a great idea to develop code that could be reused.

The State pattern can help:
http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-08-1997/jw-08-stated_p.html.

Unfortunately, I don't know any open-source implementation of it.

Cheers,

J-F

> We'll have to provide some kind of FSM support. This should give users a set of best
practices for building complex protocols on top of MINA.
> Trustin had the suggestion that we could implement it very simply by implementing IoHandler
which demultiplexes events to an appropriate IoHandler implementation according to a certain
session attribute value.
> I guess we could provide some means for defining the states and transitions too.
