Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-160) Add support for defining higher level state machines on top of MINA
Date Thu, 08 Jun 2006 07:41:30 GMT

Niklas Therning commented on DIRMINA-160:

Thanks for your comments. You are right, it isn't MINA specific. You could in fact use it
for any interface. And we could add support for CGLIB proxies and you could create proxies
for classes as well. If this proves useful to people it could probably be hosted somewhere
else like in commons.

One drawback with this approach is how the FSM is setup. One idea I have is to use Spring
to set it up. Using the new Spring 2 custom XML configuration feature I think the FSM could
be expressed in a much more readable way.

>     Priority: Minor

> 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.
