Subject [jira] Created: (DIRMINA-263) Partially read messages

Partially read messages

                 Key: DIRMINA-263
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRMINA-263
             Project: Directory MINA
          Issue Type: Wish
    Affects Versions: 0.9.5
         Environment: win xp
            Reporter: Hooman Valibeigi

assume we have a client that sends its requests consecutively ()
I tested it using MINA and I found that MINA only notifies the server side IoHandler one time
for a sequence of requests
I mean when the client sends 3 consecutive requests the server's messageReceived method will
be invoked only once
(a Request in my opinion is a package containing a request ID and data related to the request)
so my question is how should we handle the ByteBuffer that contains more than one requests
the other IoSessions should not wait while the server is processing the interminable requests
of a client
in other word the server becomes busy while processing all sent and incoming requests of one
client and may never finish
even If it responds to the first buffered request in ByteBuffer and leave the remaining requests
in hope that they will remain intact for the next messageReceived invocation from the same
IoSession, it is wrong, since any remaining byte in ByteBuffer will be released after the
messageReceived method is finished, whether we read them or not
so we should read all the incoming bytes or we will lose them
I ask you what is the correct solution to handle these kind of requests ?
in short, I want to process one request per messageReceived invocation and I expect that IoHandler
will notify me again if I have unread data from previous messageReceived calls
this question may be translated in other way as below
when is messageReceived invoked ?
- when the selecetor selects a socket which is readable ?
- so what happens if I dont process all the available data (all requests) within the ByteBuffer
in one shot ?
- also another question arise. is there any chance that the ByteBuffer parameter from messageReceived,
does not have the full request data ? I mean is it possible that a request arives in several
messageReceived calls ? I ask this because a ByteBuffer has a limit so It brings in mind that
we may encounter several problems
such that
- a ByteBuffer containing one partial request
- a ByteBuffer containing more than one request (all complete)
- a ByteBuffer containing more than one request (but the last one is partial)
