  • Package code defines standard error codes as defined by the JSON-RPC 2.0 protocol.

  • Package handler defines support for adapting functions to service methods.

  • Package jctx implements an encoder and decoder for request context values, allowing context metadata to be propagated through JSON-RPC requests.

  • Package metrics defines a server metrics collector.

  • Package proxy defines a transparent proxy that allows a connected client to be re-exported as a server.

  • Package server provides support for running a server to handle multiple connections, and an in-memory implementation for testing.

Implementation Notes

The following describes some of the implementation choices made by this module.

Batch requests and error reporting

The JSON-RPC 2.0 spec is ambiguous about the semantics of batch requests. Specifically, the definition of notifications says:

A Notification is a Request object without an "id" member. ... The Server MUST NOT reply to a Notification, including those that are within a batch request.

Notifications are not confirmable by definition, since they do not have a Response object to be returned. As such, the Client would not be aware of any errors (like e.g. "Invalid params", "Internal error").

This conflicts with the definition of batch requests, which asserts:

A Response object SHOULD exist for each Request object, except that there SHOULD NOT be any Response objects for notifications. ... The Response objects being returned from a batch call MAY be returned in any order within the Array. ... If the batch rpc call itself fails to be recognized as an valid JSON or as an Array with at least one value, the response from the Server MUST be a single Response object.

and includes examples that contain request values with no ID (which are, perforce, notifications) and report errors back to the client. Since order may not be relied upon, and there are no IDs, the client cannot correctly match such responses back to their originating requests.

This implementation resolves the conflict in favour of the notification rules. Specifically:

  • If a batch is empty or not valid JSON, the server reports error -32700 (Invalid JSON) as a single error Response object.

  • Otherwise, parse or validation errors resulting from any batch member without an ID are mapped to error objects with a null ID, in the same position in the reply as the corresponding request. Preservation of order is not required by the specification, but it ensures the server has stable behaviour.

Because a server is allowed to reorder the results, a client should not depend on this implementation detail.

Non-standard server notifications

The specification defines client and server as follows:

The Client is defined as the origin of Request objects and the handler of Response objects. The Server is defined as the origin of Response objects and the handler of Request objects.

Although a client may also be a server, and vice versa, the specification does not require them to do so. The server notification support defined in the jrpc2 package is thus "non-standard" in that it allows the server to act as a client, and the client as a server, in the narrow context of "push" notifications. Otherwise the feature is not special: Notifications sent by *jrpc2.Server.Push are standard Request objects.

Overview

Package jrpc2 implements a server and a client for the JSON-RPC 2.0 protocol defined by http://www.jsonrpc.org/specification.

Servers

The *Server type implements a JSON-RPC server. A server communicates with a client over a channel.Channel, and dispatches client requests to user-defined method handlers. Handlers satisfy the jrpc2.Handler interface by exporting a Handle method with this signature:

Handle(ctx Context.Context, req *jrpc2.Request) (interface{}, error)

The handler package helps adapt existing functions to this interface. A server finds the handler for a request by looking up its method name in a jrpc2.Assigner provided when the server is set up.

For example, suppose we have defined the following Add function, and would like to export it as a JSON-RPC method:

// Add returns the sum of a slice of integers.
func Add(ctx context.Context, values []int) (int, error) {
   sum := 0
   for _, v := range values {
      sum += v
   }
   return sum, nil
}

To convert Add to a jrpc2.Handler, call the handler.New function, which uses reflection to lift its argument into the jrpc2.Handler interface:

h := handler.New(Add)  // h is a jrpc2.Handler that invokes Add

We will advertise this function under the name "Add". For static assignments we can use a handler.Map, which finds methods by looking them up in a Go map:

assigner := handler.Map{
   "Add": handler.New(Add),
}

Equipped with an Assigner we can now construct a Server:

srv := jrpc2.NewServer(assigner, nil)  // nil for default options

To serve requests, we will next need a channel.Channel. The channel package exports functions that can adapt various input and output streams. For this example, we'll use a channel that delimits messages by newlines, and communicates on os.Stdin and os.Stdout:

ch := channel.Line(os.Stdin, os.Stdout)
srv.Start(ch)

Once started, the running server will handle incoming requests until the channel closes, or until it is stopped explicitly by calling srv.Stop(). To wait for the server to finish, call:

err := srv.Wait()

This will report the error that led to the server exiting. A working implementation of this example can found in cmd/examples/adder/adder.go:

$ go run cmd/examples/adder/adder.go

You can interact with this server by typing JSON-RPC requests on stdin.

Clients

The *Client type implements a JSON-RPC client. A client communicates with a server over a channel.Channel, and is safe for concurrent use by multiple goroutines. It supports batched requests and may have arbitrarily many pending requests in flight simultaneously.

To establish a client we first need a channel:

import "net"

conn, err := net.Dial("tcp", "localhost:8080")
...
ch := channel.RawJSON(conn, conn)
cli := jrpc2.NewClient(ch, nil)  // nil for default options

To send a single RPC, use the Call method:

rsp, err := cli.Call(ctx, "Add", []int{1, 3, 5, 7})

This blocks until the response is received. Any error returned by the server, including cancellation or deadline exceeded, has concrete type *jrpc2.Error.

To issue a batch of requests all at once, use the Batch method:

rsps, err := cli.Batch(ctx, []jrpc2.Spec{
   {Method: "Math.Add", Params: []int{1, 2, 3}},
   {Method: "Math.Mul", Params: []int{4, 5, 6}},
   {Method: "Math.Max", Params: []int{-1, 5, 3, 0, 1}},
})

The Batch method waits until all the responses are received. An error from the Batch call reflects an error in sending the request: The caller must check each response separately for errors from the server. The responses will be returned in the same order as the Spec values, save that notifications are omitted.

To decode the result from a successful response use its UnmarshalResult method:

var result int
if err := rsp.UnmarshalResult(&result); err != nil {
   log.Fatalln("UnmarshalResult:", err)
}

To shut down a client and discard all its pending work, call cli.Close().

Notifications

The JSON-RPC protocol also supports a kind of request called a notification. Notifications differ from ordinary calls in that they are one-way: The client sends them to the server, but the server does not reply.

A jrpc2.Client supports sending notifications as follows:

err := cli.Notify(ctx, "Alert", struct{ M string }{
   M: "A fire is burning!",
})

Unlike ordinary requests, there are no responses for notifications; a notification is complete once it has been sent.

On the server side, notifications are identical to ordinary requests, save that their return value is discarded once the handler returns. If a handler does not want to do anything for a notification, it can query the request:

if req.IsNotification() {
   return 0, nil  // ignore notifications
}

Cancellation

The *Client and *Server types support a non-standard cancellation protocol, that consists of a notification method "rpc.cancel" taking an array of request IDs to be cancelled. Upon receiving this notification, the server will cancel the context of each method handler whose ID is named.

When the context associated with a client request is cancelled, the client will send an "rpc.cancel" notification to the server for that request's ID. The "rpc.cancel" method is automatically handled (unless disabled) by the *Server implementation from this package.

Services with Multiple Methods

The examples above show a server with only one method using handler.New; you will often want to expose more than one. The handler.NewService function supports this by applying New to all the exported methods of a concrete value to produce a MapAssigner for those methods:

type math struct{}

func (math) Add(ctx context.Context, vals ...int) (int, error) { ... }
func (math) Mul(ctx context.Context, vals []int) (int, error) { ... }

assigner := handler.NewService(math{})

This assigner maps the name "Add" to the Add method, and the name "Mul" to the Mul method, of the math value.

This may be further combined with the ServiceMap type to allow different services to work together:

type status struct{}

func (status) Get(context.Context) (string, error) {
   return "all is well", nil
}

assigner := handler.ServiceMap{
   "Math":   handler.NewService(math{}),
   "Status": handler.NewService(status{}),
}

This assigner dispatches "Math.Add" and "Math.Mul" to the math value's methods, and "Status.Get" to the status value's method. A ServiceMap splits the method name on the first period ("."), and you may nest ServiceMaps more deeply if you require a more complex hierarchy.

Non-Standard Extension Methods

By default a jrpc2.Server exports the following built-in non-standard extension methods:

rpc.serverInfo(null) ⇒ jrpc2.ServerInfo
Returns a jrpc2.ServerInfo value giving server metrics.

rpc.cancel([]int)  [notification]
Request cancellation of the specified in-flight request IDs.

The rpc.cancel method works only as a notification, and will report an error if called as an ordinary method.

These extension methods are enabled by default, but may be disabled by setting the DisableBuiltin server option to true when constructing the server.

Server Notifications

The AllowPush option in jrpc2.ServerOptions enables the server to "push" notifications back to the client. This is a non-standard extension of JSON-RPC used by some applications such as the Language Server Protocol (LSP). The Push method sends a notification back to the client, if this feature is enabled:

if err := s.Push(ctx, "methodName", params); err == jrpc2.ErrNotifyUnsupported {
  // server notifications are not enabled
}

A method handler may use jrpc2.ServerPush to access this functionality. On the client side, the OnNotify option in jrpc2.ClientOptions provides a callback to which any server notifications are delivered if it is set.

        ErrInvalidVersion is returned by ParseRequests if one or more of the requests in the input has a missing or invalid version marker.

        View Source
        var ErrNoData = errors.New("no data to unmarshal")

          ErrNoData indicates that there are no data to unmarshal.

          View Source
          var ErrNotifyUnsupported = errors.New("server notifications are not enabled")

            ErrNotifyUnsupported is returned by ServerPush if server notifications are not enabled in the specified context.

            Functions

            func DataErrorf

            func DataErrorf(code code.Code, v interface{}, msg string, args ...interface{}) error

              DataErrorf returns an error value of concrete type *Error having the specified code, error data, and formatted message string. If v == nil this behaves identically to Errorf(code, msg, args...).

              func Errorf

              func Errorf(code code.Code, msg string, args ...interface{}) error

                Errorf returns an error value of concrete type *Error having the specified code and formatted message string. It is shorthand for DataErrorf(code, nil, msg, args...)

                func ServerMetrics

                func ServerMetrics(ctx context.Context) *metrics.M

                  ServerMetrics returns the server metrics collector associated with the given context, or nil if ctx doees not have a collector attached. The context passed to a handler by *jrpc2.Server will include this value.

                  func ServerPush

                  func ServerPush(ctx context.Context, method string, params interface{}) error

                    ServerPush posts a server notification to the client. If ctx does not contain a server notifier, this reports ErrNotifyUnsupported. The context passed to the handler by *jrpc2.Server will support notifications if the server was constructed with the AllowPush option set true.

                    Types

                    type Assigner

                    type Assigner interface {
                    	// Assign returns the handler for the named method, or nil.
                    	Assign(method string) Handler
                    
                    	// Names returns a slice of all known method names for the assigner.  The
                    	// resulting slice is ordered lexicographically and contains no duplicates.
                    	Names() []string
                    }

                      An Assigner assigns a Handler to handle the specified method name, or nil if no method is available to handle the request.

                      type Client

                      type Client struct {
                      	// contains filtered or unexported fields
                      }

                        A Client is a JSON-RPC 2.0 client. The client sends requests and receives responses on a channel.Channel provided by the caller.

                        func NewClient

                        func NewClient(ch channel.Channel, opts *ClientOptions) *Client

                          NewClient returns a new client that communicates with the server via ch.

                          func (*Client) Batch

                          func (c *Client) Batch(ctx context.Context, specs []Spec) ([]*Response, error)

                            Batch initiates a batch of concurrent requests, and blocks until all the responses return. The responses are returned in the same order as the original specs, omitting notifications.

                            Any error returned is from sending the batch; the caller must check each response for errors from the server.

                            Example
                            Output:
                            
                            Log: Sing it!
                            len(rsps) = 1
                            Response #1: Hello, world!
                            

                            func (*Client) Call

                            func (c *Client) Call(ctx context.Context, method string, params interface{}) (*Response, error)

                              Call initiates a single request and blocks until the response returns. If err != nil then rsp == nil, which also means that if rsp != nil then the request succeeded. Errors from the server have concrete type *jrpc2.Error.

                              rsp, err := c.Call(ctx, method, params)
                              if e, ok := err.(*jrpc2.Error); ok {
                                 log.Fatalf("Error from server: %v", err)
                              } else if err != nil {
                                 log.Fatalf("Call failed: %v", err)
                              }
                              handleValidResponse(rsp)
                              
                              Example
                              Output:
                              
                              Hello, world!
                              

                              func (*Client) CallResult

                              func (c *Client) CallResult(ctx context.Context, method string, params, result interface{}) error

                                CallResult invokes Call with the given method and params. If it succeeds, the result is decoded into result. This is a convenient shorthand for Call followed by UnmarshalResult. It will panic if result == nil.

                                Example
                                Output:
                                
                                Hello, world!
                                

                                func (*Client) Close

                                func (c *Client) Close() error

                                  Close shuts down the client, abandoning any pending in-flight requests.

                                  func (*Client) Notify

                                  func (c *Client) Notify(ctx context.Context, method string, params interface{}) error

                                    Notify transmits a notification to the specified method and parameters. It blocks until the notification has been sent.

                                    type ClientOptions

                                    type ClientOptions struct {
                                    	// If not nil, send debug logs here.
                                    	Logger *log.Logger
                                    
                                    	// Instructs the client to tolerate responses that do not include the
                                    	// required "jsonrpc" version marker.
                                    	AllowV1 bool
                                    
                                    	// Instructs the client not to send rpc.cancel notifications to the server
                                    	// when the context for an in-flight request terminates.
                                    	DisableCancel bool
                                    
                                    	// If set, this function is called with the context, method name, and
                                    	// encoded request parameters before the request is sent to the server.
                                    	// Its return value replaces the request parameters. This allows the client
                                    	// to send context metadata along with the request. If unset, the parameters
                                    	// are unchanged.
                                    	EncodeContext func(context.Context, string, json.RawMessage) (json.RawMessage, error)
                                    
                                    	// If set, this function is called if a notification is received from the
                                    	// server. If unset, server notifications are logged and discarded.  At
                                    	// most one invocation of the callback will be active at a time.
                                    	// Server notifications are a non-standard extension of JSON-RPC.
                                    	OnNotify func(*Request)
                                    }

                                      ClientOptions control the behaviour of a client created by NewClient. A nil *ClientOptions provides sensible defaults.

                                      type Error

                                      type Error struct {
                                      	// contains filtered or unexported fields
                                      }

                                        Error is the concrete type of errors returned from RPC calls.

                                        func (Error) Code

                                        func (e Error) Code() code.Code

                                          Code returns the error code value associated with e.

                                          func (Error) Error

                                          func (e Error) Error() string

                                            Error renders e to a human-readable string for the error interface.

                                            func (Error) HasData

                                            func (e Error) HasData() bool

                                              HasData reports whether e has error data to unmarshal.

                                              func (Error) Message

                                              func (e Error) Message() string

                                                Message returns the message string associated with e.

                                                func (Error) UnmarshalData

                                                func (e Error) UnmarshalData(v interface{}) error

                                                  UnmarshalData decodes the error data associated with e into v. It returns ErrNoData without modifying v if there was no data message attached to e.

                                                  type Handler

                                                  type Handler interface {

                                                  	// must be JSON-marshalable or nil. In case of error, the handler can

                                                  	// back to the caller; otherwise the server will wrap the resulting value.
                                                  	//
                                                  	// The context passed to the handler by a *jrpc2.Server includes two extra
                                                  	// values that the handler may extract.

                                                  	//    sm := jrpc2.ServerMetrics(ctx)
                                                  	//

                                                  	//
                                                  	//    req := jrpc2.InboundRequest(ctx)
                                                  	//
                                                  	// The inbound request is the same value passed to the Handle method -- the
                                                  	// latter is primarily useful in handlers generated by handler.New, which do
                                                  	// not receive this value directly.
                                                  	Handle(context.Context, *Request) (interface{}, error)
                                                  }

                                                    A Handler handles a single request.

                                                    type Request

                                                    type Request struct {
                                                    	// contains filtered or unexported fields
                                                    }

                                                      A Request is a request message from a client to a server.

                                                      func InboundRequest

                                                      func InboundRequest(ctx context.Context) *Request

                                                        InboundRequest returns the inbound request associated with the given context, or nil if ctx does not have an inbound request. The context passed to the handler by *jrpc2.Server will include this value.

                                                        This is mainly useful to wrapped server methods that do not have the request as an explicit parameter; for direct implementations of Handler.Handle the request value returned by InboundRequest will be the same value as was passed explicitly.

                                                        func ParseRequests

                                                        func ParseRequests(msg []byte) ([]*Request, error)

                                                          ParseRequests parses a single request or a batch of requests from JSON. The result parameters are either nil or have concrete type json.RawMessage.

                                                          If any of the requests is missing or has an invalid JSON-RPC version, it returns ErrInvalidVersion along with the parsed results. Otherwise, no validation apart from basic structure is performed on the results.

                                                          func (*Request) HasParams

                                                          func (r *Request) HasParams() bool

                                                            HasParams reports whether the request has non-empty parameters.

                                                            func (*Request) ID

                                                            func (r *Request) ID() string

                                                              ID returns the request identifier for r, or "" if r is a notification.

                                                              func (*Request) IsNotification

                                                              func (r *Request) IsNotification() bool

                                                                IsNotification reports whether the request is a notification, and thus does not require a value response.

                                                                func (*Request) Method

                                                                func (r *Request) Method() string

                                                                  Method reports the method name for the request.

                                                                  func (*Request) UnmarshalParams

                                                                  func (r *Request) UnmarshalParams(v interface{}) error

                                                                    UnmarshalParams decodes the parameters into v. If r has empty parameters, it returns nil without modifying v.

                                                                    type Response

                                                                    type Response struct {
                                                                    	// contains filtered or unexported fields
                                                                    }

                                                                      A Response is a response message from a server to a client.

                                                                      func (*Response) Error

                                                                      func (r *Response) Error() *Error

                                                                        Error returns a non-nil *Error if the response contains an error.

                                                                        func (*Response) ID

                                                                        func (r *Response) ID() string

                                                                          ID returns the request identifier for r.

                                                                          func (*Response) MarshalJSON

                                                                          func (r *Response) MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error)

                                                                            MarshalJSON converts the response to equivalent JSON.

                                                                            func (*Response) SetID

                                                                            func (r *Response) SetID(id string)

                                                                              SetID sets the request identifier for r. This is for use in proxies.

                                                                              func (*Response) UnmarshalResult

                                                                              func (r *Response) UnmarshalResult(v interface{}) error

                                                                                UnmarshalResult decodes the result message into v. If the request failed, UnmarshalResult returns the *Error value that would also be returned by r.Error(), and v is unmodified.

                                                                                type Server

                                                                                type Server struct {
                                                                                	// contains filtered or unexported fields
                                                                                }

                                                                                  A Server is a JSON-RPC 2.0 server. The server receives requests and sends responses on a channel.Channel provided by the caller, and dispatches requests to user-defined Handlers.

                                                                                  func NewServer

                                                                                  func NewServer(mux Assigner, opts *ServerOptions) *Server

                                                                                    NewServer returns a new unstarted server that will dispatch incoming JSON-RPC requests according to mux. To start serving, call Start.

                                                                                    N.B. It is only safe to modify mux after the server has been started if mux itself is safe for concurrent use by multiple goroutines.

                                                                                    This function will panic if mux == nil.

                                                                                    Example
                                                                                    Output:
                                                                                    
                                                                                    Hello
                                                                                    Log
                                                                                    

                                                                                    func (*Server) Push

                                                                                    func (s *Server) Push(ctx context.Context, method string, params interface{}) error

                                                                                      Push posts a server-side notification to the client. This is a non-standard extension of JSON-RPC, and may not be supported by all clients. Unless s was constructed with the AllowPush option set true, this method will always report an error (ErrNotifyUnsupported) without sending anything.

                                                                                      func (*Server) ServerInfo

                                                                                      func (s *Server) ServerInfo() *ServerInfo

                                                                                        ServerInfo returns an atomic snapshot of the current server info for s.

                                                                                        func (*Server) Start

                                                                                        func (s *Server) Start(c channel.Channel) *Server

                                                                                          Start enables processing of requests from c. This function will panic if the server is already running.

                                                                                          func (*Server) Stop
