Package rpc defines interfaces for communication via remote procedure call.

    Tutorial: (forthcoming)

    There are two actors in the system, clients and servers. Clients invoke methods on Servers, using the StartCall method provided by the Client interface. Servers implement methods on named objects. The named object is found using a Dispatcher, and the method is invoked using an Invoker.

    Instances of the Runtime host Clients and Servers, such instances may simultaneously host both Clients and Servers. The Runtime allows multiple names to be simultaneously supported via the Dispatcher interface.

    The naming package provides a rendezvous mechanism for Clients and Servers. In particular, it allows Runtimes hosting Servers to share Endpoints with Clients that enables communication between them. Endpoints encode sufficient addressing information to enable communication.

      func PublisherNames

      func PublisherNames(e []PublisherEntry) []string

        PublisherNames returns the current set of names being published by the publisher. These names are not rooted at the mounttable.

        func PublisherServers

        func PublisherServers(e []PublisherEntry) []string

          PublisherServers returns the current set of server addresses being published by the publisher.

          func TypeCheckMethods

          func TypeCheckMethods(obj interface{}) map[string]error

            TypeCheckMethods type checks each method in obj, and returns a map from method name to the type check result. Nil errors indicate the method is invocable by the Invoker returned by ReflectInvoker(obj). Non-nil errors contain details of the type mismatch - any error with the "Aborted" id will cause a panic in a ReflectInvoker() call.

            This is useful for debugging why a particular method isn't available via ReflectInvoker.


            type AddressChooser

            type AddressChooser interface {
            	ChooseAddresses(protocol string, candidates []net.Addr) ([]net.Addr, error)

              AddressChooser determines the preferred addresses to publish into the mount table when one is not otherwise specified.

              type AddressChooserFunc

              type AddressChooserFunc func(protocol string, candidates []net.Addr) ([]net.Addr, error)

                AddressChooserFunc is a convenience for implementations that wish to supply a function literal implementation of AddressChooser.

                func (AddressChooserFunc) ChooseAddresses

                func (f AddressChooserFunc) ChooseAddresses(protocol string, candidates []net.Addr) ([]net.Addr, error)

                type AllGlobber

                type AllGlobber interface {
                	// Glob__ returns a GlobReply for the objects that match the given
                	// glob pattern in the namespace below the receiver object. All the
                	// names returned are relative to the receiver.
                	Glob__(ctx *context.T, call GlobServerCall, g *glob.Glob) error

                  AllGlobber is a powerful interface that allows the object to enumerate the the entire namespace below the receiver object. Every object that implements it must be able to handle glob requests that could match any object below itself. E.g. "a/b".Glob__("*/*"), "a/b".Glob__("c/..."), etc.

                  type ArgDesc

                  type ArgDesc struct {
                  	Name string
                  	Doc  string

                    ArgDesc describes an argument; it is similar to signature.Arg, without the information that can be obtained via reflection.

                    type CallOpt

                    type CallOpt interface {

                      CallOpt is the interface for all Call options.

                      type ChildrenGlobber

                      type ChildrenGlobber interface {
                      	// GlobChildren__ returns a GlobChildrenReply for the receiver's
                      	// immediate children that match the glob pattern element.
                      	// It should return an error if the receiver doesn't exist.
                      	GlobChildren__(ctx *context.T, call GlobChildrenServerCall, matcher *glob.Element) error

                        ChildrenGlobber allows the object to enumerate the namespace immediately below the receiver object.

                        type Client

                        type Client interface {
                        	// StartCall starts an asynchronous call of the method on the server instance
                        	// identified by name, with the given input args (of any arity).  The returned
                        	// Call object manages streaming args and results, and finishes the call.
                        	// StartCall accepts at least the following options:
                        	StartCall(ctx *context.T, name, method string, args []interface{}, opts ...CallOpt) (ClientCall, error)
                        	// Call makes a synchronous call that will retry application level
                        	// verrors that have verror.ActionCode RetryBackoff.
                        	Call(ctx *context.T, name, method string, inArgs, outArgs []interface{}, opts ...CallOpt) error
                        	// PinConnection returns a flow.PinnedConn to the remote end if it is successful
                        	// connecting to it within the context’s timeout, or if the connection is
                        	// already in the cache.
                        	// Connection related opts passed to PinConnection are valid until the
                        	// PinnedConn.Unpin() is called.
                        	PinConnection(ctx *context.T, name string, opts ...CallOpt) (flow.PinnedConn, error)
                        	// Close discards all state associated with this Client.  In-flight calls may
                        	// be terminated with an error.
                        	// TODO(mattr): This method is deprecated with the new RPC system.
                        	// Closed returns a channel that will be closed after the client is shut down.
                        	Closed() <-chan struct{}

                          Client represents the interface for making RPC calls. There may be multiple outstanding Calls associated with a single Client, and a Client may be used by multiple goroutines concurrently.

                          type ClientCall

                          type ClientCall interface {
                          	// CloseSend indicates to the server that no more items will be sent; server
                          	// Recv calls will receive io.EOF after all items are sent.  Subsequent calls to
                          	// Send on the client will fail.  This is an optional call - it is used by
                          	// streaming clients that need the server to receive the io.EOF terminator.
                          	CloseSend() error
                          	// Finish blocks until the server has finished the call, and fills resultptrs
                          	// with the positional output results (of any arity).
                          	Finish(resultptrs ...interface{}) error
                          	// RemoteBlesesings returns the blessings that the server provided to authenticate
                          	// with the client.
                          	// It returns both the string blessings and a handle to the object that contains
                          	// cryptographic proof of the validity of those blessings.
                          	// TODO(ashankar): Make this RemoteBlessingNames and remove the second result
                          	// since that is the same as ClientCall.Security().RemoteBlessings()
                          	RemoteBlessings() ([]string, security.Blessings)
                          	// Security returns the security-related state associated with the call.
                          	Security() security.Call

                            Call defines the interface for each in-flight call on the client. Finish must be called to finish the call; all other methods are optional.

                            type ClientOpt

                            type ClientOpt interface {

                              ClientOpt is the interface for all Client options.

                              type Describer

                              type Describer interface {
                              	// Describe the underlying object.  The implementation must be idempotent
                              	// across different instances of the same underlying type; the ReflectInvoker
                              	// calls this once per type and caches the results.
                              	Describe__() []InterfaceDesc

                                Describer may be implemented by an underlying object served by the ReflectInvoker, in order to describe the interfaces that the object implements. This describes all data in signature.Interface that the ReflectInvoker cannot obtain through reflection; basically everything except the method names and types.

                                Note that a single object may implement multiple interfaces; to describe such an object, simply return more than one elem in the returned list.

                                type Dispatcher

                                type Dispatcher interface {
                                	// Lookup returns the service implementation for the object identified
                                	// by the given suffix.
                                	// Reflection is used to match requests to the service object's method
                                	// set.  As a special-case, if the object returned by Lookup implements
                                	// the Invoker interface, the Invoker is used to invoke methods
                                	// directly, without reflection.
                                	// Returning a nil object indicates that this Dispatcher does not
                                	// support the requested suffix.
                                	// An Authorizer is also returned to allow control over authorization
                                	// checks. Returning a nil Authorizer indicates the default
                                	// authorization checks should be used.
                                	// Returning any non-nil error indicates the dispatch lookup has failed.
                                	// The error will be delivered back to the client.
                                	// Lookup may be called concurrently by the underlying RPC system, and
                                	// hence must be thread-safe.
                                	Lookup(ctx *context.T, suffix string) (interface{}, security.Authorizer, error)

                                  Dispatcher defines the interface that a server must implement to handle method invocations on named objects.

                                  type EmbedDesc

                                  type EmbedDesc struct {
                                  	Name    string
                                  	PkgPath string
                                  	Doc     string

                                    EmbedDesc describes an embedded interface; it is similar to signature.Embed, without the information that can be obtained via reflection.

                                    type GlobChildrenServerCall

                                    type GlobChildrenServerCall interface {
                                    	SendStream() interface {
                                    		Send(reply naming.GlobChildrenReply) error

                                      GlobChildrenServerCall defines the in-flight context for a GlobChildren__ call, including the method to stream the results.

                                      type GlobServerCall

                                      type GlobServerCall interface {
                                      	SendStream() interface {
                                      		Send(reply naming.GlobReply) error

                                        GlobServerCall defines the in-flight context for a Glob__ call, including the method to stream the results.

                                        type GlobState

                                        type GlobState struct {
                                        	AllGlobber      AllGlobber
                                        	ChildrenGlobber ChildrenGlobber

                                          GlobState indicates which Glob interface the object implements.

                                          func NewGlobState

                                          func NewGlobState(obj interface{}) *GlobState

                                            NewGlobState returns the GlobState corresponding to obj. Returns nil if obj doesn't implement AllGlobber or ChildrenGlobber.

                                            type Globber

                                            type Globber interface {
                                            	// Globber returns a GlobState with references to the interface that the
                                            	// object implements. Only one implementation is needed to participate
                                            	// in the namespace.
                                            	Globber() *GlobState

                                              Globber allows objects to take part in the namespace. Service objects may choose to implement either the AllGlobber interface, or the ChildrenGlobber interface.

                                              The AllGlobber interface lets the object handle complex glob requests for the entire namespace below the receiver object, i.e. "a/b".Glob__("...") must return the name of all the objects under "a/b".

                                              The ChildrenGlobber interface is simpler. Each object only has to return a list of the objects immediately below itself in the namespace graph.

                                              type Granter

                                              type Granter interface {
                                              	Grant(ctx *context.T, call security.Call) (security.Blessings, error)

                                                Granter is a ClientCallOpt that is used to provide blessings to the server when making an RPC.

                                                It gets passed a context.T with parameters of the RPC call set on it.

                                                type InterfaceDesc

                                                type InterfaceDesc struct {
                                                	Name    string
                                                	PkgPath string
                                                	Doc     string
                                                	Embeds  []EmbedDesc
                                                	Methods []MethodDesc

                                                  InterfaceDesc describes an interface; it is similar to signature.Interface, without the information that can be obtained via reflection.

                                                  type Invoker

                                                  type Invoker interface {
                                                  	// Prepare is the first stage of method invocation, based on the given method
                                                  	// name.  The given numArgs specifies the number of input arguments sent by
                                                  	// the client, which may be used to support method overloading or generic
                                                  	// processing.
                                                  	// Returns argptrs which will be filled in by the caller; e.g. the server
                                                  	// framework calls Prepare, and decodes the input arguments sent by the client
                                                  	// into argptrs.
                                                  	// If the Invoker has access to the underlying Go values, it should return
                                                  	// argptrs containing pointers to the Go values that will receive the
                                                  	// arguments.  This is the typical case, e.g. the ReflectInvoker.

                                                    Invoker defines the interface used by the server for invoking methods on named objects. Typically ReflectInvoker(object) is used, which makes all exported methods on the given object invocable.

                                                    Advanced users may implement this interface themselves for finer-grained control. E.g. an RPC gateway that enables bindings for other languages (like javascript) may use this interface to support serving methods without an explicit intermediate object.

                                                    func ChildrenGlobberInvoker

                                                    func ChildrenGlobberInvoker(children ...string) Invoker

                                                      ChildrenGlobberInvoker returns an Invoker for an object that implements the ChildrenGlobber interface, and nothing else.

                                                      func ReflectInvoker

                                                      func ReflectInvoker(obj interface{}) (Invoker, error)

                                                        ReflectInvoker returns an Invoker implementation that uses reflection to make each compatible exported method in obj available. E.g.:

                                                        type impl struct{}
                                                        func (impl) NonStreaming(ctx *context.T, call rpc.ServerCall, ...) (...)
                                                        func (impl) Streaming(ctx *context.T, call *MyCall, ...) (...)

                                                        The first in-arg must be context.T. The second in-arg must be a call; for non-streaming methods it must be rpc.ServerCall, and for streaming methods it must be a pointer to a struct that implements rpc.StreamServerCall, and also adds typesafe streaming wrappers. Here's an example that streams int32 from client to server, and string from server to client:

                                                        type MyCall struct { rpc.StreamServerCall }
                                                        // Init initializes MyCall via rpc.StreamServerCall.
                                                        func (*MyCall) Init(rpc.StreamServerCall) {...}
                                                        // RecvStream returns the receiver side of the server stream.
                                                        func (*MyCall) RecvStream() interface {
                                                          Advance() bool
                                                          Value() int32
                                                          Err() error
                                                        } {...}
                                                        // SendStream returns the sender side of the server stream.
                                                        func (*MyCall) SendStream() interface {
                                                          Send(item string) error
                                                        } {...}

                                                        We require the streaming call arg to have this structure so that we can capture the streaming in and out arg types via reflection. We require it to be a concrete type with an Init func so that we can create new instances, also via reflection.

                                                        As a temporary special-case, we also allow generic streaming methods:

                                                        func (impl) Generic(ctx *context.T, call rpc.StreamServerCall, ...) (...)

                                                        The problem with allowing this form is that via reflection we can no longer determine whether the server performs streaming, or what the streaming in and out types are. TODO(toddw): Remove this special-case.

                                                        The ReflectInvoker silently ignores unexported methods, and exported methods whose first argument doesn't implement rpc.ServerCall. All other methods must follow the above rules; bad method types cause an error to be returned.

                                                        If obj implements the Describer interface, we'll use it to describe portions of the object signature that cannot be retrieved via reflection; e.g. method tags, documentation, variable names, etc.

                                                        func ReflectInvokerOrDie

                                                        func ReflectInvokerOrDie(obj interface{}) Invoker

                                                          ReflectInvokerOrDie is the same as ReflectInvoker, but panics on all errors.

                                                          type ListenAddrs

                                                          type ListenAddrs []struct {
                                                          	Protocol, Address string

                                                            ListenAddrs is the set of protocol, address pairs to listen on. An anonymous struct is used to more easily initialize a ListenSpec from a different package.

                                                            For TCP, the address must be in <ip>:<port> format. The <ip> may be omitted, but the <port> cannot. Use port 0 to have the system allocate one for you.

                                                            type ListenSpec

                                                              ListenSpec specifies the information required to create a set of listening network endpoints for a server and, optionally, the name of a proxy to use in conjunction with that listener.
