Subject [jira] Commented: (TUSCANY-3193) Domain Manager GUI does not put <binding.sca> entries in generated node confiig files
Date Mon, 03 Aug 2009 15:49:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TUSCANY-3193?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12738395#action_12738395

Simon Nash commented on TUSCANY-3193:

The fix I have checked in isn't completely straightforward because of the "catch 22" of the
binding URIs being created before the wiring is done.  This ordering means that it isn't possible
to use the presence or absence of wires to influence whether a relative or absolute URI is
created for binding.sca.

The desired behaviour for <binding.sca> is to create an absolute URI for reference and
service bindings (including reference callback bindings) if the reference and service are
wired across composites running on different nodes in a distributed configuration.  For references
and services that aren't wired, or that are wired within a composite running on a single node
in a distributed configuration, the binding URI should be relative so that locally optimized
calling is used.

With the r800411 fix, the URI creation step still happens first.  If the binding type is binding.sca
and the builders are being called by the domain manager to create a node configuration, a
"tentative" relative URI is created for the binding and the binding is added to a Map that
maintains binding/node relationships (the bindingMap).

When the domain wiring is done later, there is code in the matchBinding() method of BindingConfigurationUtil
that uses the bindingMap created in the first step to look up which node the reference or
service is running on.  If the source and target of the wire are running on different nodes,
the "tentative" relative URI is updated to convert it to an absolute URI with host/port information.
 In all other cases the "tentative" relative URI is left unchanged.

For reference callback URIs, the "tentative" relative URI is updated to an absolute URI if
and only if the target of the forward wire is outside the current node.

If the builders are not being called by the domain manager, the bindingMap will always be
null and none of the above processing will happen.  This ensures that the fix will not disturb
the execution paths for calls not made by the domain manager.

>             Project: Tuscany
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Java SCA Domain Management
>    Affects Versions: Java-SCA-1.5.1
>            Reporter: Simon Nash
>            Assignee: Simon Nash
>             Fix For: Java-SCA-1.5.1
> When creating a domain configuration from scratch using the Domain Manager GUI, the generated
configuration files for nodes in the "cloud" directory don't have a <binding.sca> entry.
 These files currently have host/port entries for binding.ws, binding.http, binding.jsonrpc,
and binding.atom, but no host/port entry for binding.sca.
> Without this entry, application composites sent to the nodes by the domain manager will
always have local-only <binding.sca> entries, which means they can't use binding.sca
to communicate between different nodes.  This applies to both forward calls and callbacks.
> In order to get binding.sca to work across distributed nodes, it's currently necessary
to manually edit the generated files in the "cloud" directory and add <binding.sca>
elements to the node definitions.  This is a serious usability issue for someone who wants
to use the distributed domain in the simplest possible manner.
> A complete fix for this problem requires the following:
> 1. Add <binding.sca> elements to the generated configuration.
> 2. Change the builder code so that the presence of these elements does not force all
binding.sca calls to use a distributed provider, which would create unnecessary overhead when
the reference and the target are running on the same node.
