Subject Re: Multiple interfaces handled by the same TServer

This is not exactly what you were looking for but as an alternative you can 
emulate this over HTTP by mapping your different services to URLs. Of course, 
you'll have additional overhead with HTTP but you can support many different 
services on a single server:port. I am currently doing this using Netty as my 
http server and it works very well.

There's currently no clean way to do this. A while back, there were some
proposals on how we could support this directly, but they did not get fully
implemented. I think it was James King and his "channels" proposal that you
might want to look for in the mailing list archive.
