Subject [jira] Commented: (DIRMINA-160) Add support for defining higher level state machines on top of MINA

Julien Vermillard commented on DIRMINA-160:
-------------------------------------------

I started looking at your code, here some random comments :
you're right the API look like much better than the horrible State pattern ;) with the zillion
of class you need to define.
The class proxy  for controlling method transition is a good idea, it make it quite transparent
for the developper. I always hate to be forced to use reflexion and classloaders but I can't
think about a smarter way. It's looking like a good help for implementing protocols, but is
it really MINA specific ?

> 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.
