Subject [jira] [Created] (PROTON-1706) pn_listener_t provide access to actual listening port
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2017 15:57:00 GMT
Alan Conway created PROTON-1706:

             Summary: pn_listener_t provide access to actual listening port
                 Key: PROTON-1706
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-1706
             Project: Qpid Proton
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: proton-c
    Affects Versions: proton-c-0.18.1
            Reporter: Alan Conway
            Assignee: Alan Conway
             Fix For: proton-c-0.19.0

Allow access to the actual listening port of a pn_listener_t so that the actual address is
available when listening on port 0. 

Proposed API:

 * Get the listening addresses of a listener.
 * A listener can have more than one address for several reasons:
 * - DNS host records may indicate more than one address
 * - On a multi-homed host, listening on the default host "" will listen on all local addresses.
 * - Some IPv4/IPV6 configurations may expand a single address into a v4/v6 pair.
 * @param l points to the listener
 * @param addrs an array of `pn_netaddr_t*` to be filled with pointers the listening addresses
 *  Pointers are invalid after the listener closes (PN_LISTENER_CLOSE event is handled)
 * @param len is the length of the array @p addrs
 * @return The actual number of addresses used for listening. This may be:
 *  - 0: addresses are unavailable.
 *  - <= @p len:  all addresses were copied to @p addrs, remaining entries were set to
 *  - > @p len: the first @p len addresses were copied to @p addr.
 *  `pn_netaddr_listen(l, NULL, 0)` returns the number of listening addresses.
PNP_EXTERN const size_t pn_netaddr_listen(pn_listener_t *l, pn_netaddr_t** addrs, size_t len);
