Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-4724) Add Multicast Capabilities to the UDP Transport
Date Wed, 26 May 2010 05:32:32 GMT


Hiranya Jayathilaka commented on AXIS2-4724:

I was able to add multicast support to the existing UDP sender without much trouble. But in
the listener side I'm facing some issues. The existing listener is using Java NIO datagram
channels to receive UDP messages (java.nio.channels API). But this API does not support multicasting
(see [1][2] for details). It seems this API will not support multicasting until JDK 1.7. 

As a solution I have implemented a new transport listener (MulticastUDPListener),  a new IO
dispatcher (MulticastIODispatcher) and a new endpoint (MulticastEndpoint). Do you see any
other way of implementing multicast support for the listener? Or at least some mechanism for
merging the new IO dispatcher and the endpoint with the existing listener?

> With this improvement Axis2 will be able to receive SOAP messages from multicast groups
and send requests to multicast groups. Also we will be able to support multicast request -
unicast response MEP. I will attach the patch soon.
