Re: [ecf-dev] Sending crendentials with every request

Hi Peter,

To explain what's happening wrt the adapters, here's the stack on a client when the RegistrySharedObject is created:

Daemon Thread [RSA EndpointDescriptionLocator Dispatcher] (Suspended (breakpoint at line 25 in RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory))   
    owns: RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory  (id=100)   
    RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory.createAdapter(ISharedObjectContainer, Class, ID) line: 25   
    RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory(AbstractSharedObjectContainerAdapterFactory).getSharedObjectAdapter(ISharedObjectContainer, Class) line: 93   
    RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory(AbstractSharedObjectContainerAdapterFactory).getContainerAdapter(IContainer, Class) line: 51   
    RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory(AbstractContainerAdapterFactory).getAdapter(Object, Class) line: 32   
    AdapterManager.getAdapter(Object, String, boolean) line: 340   
    AdapterManager.loadAdapter(Object, String) line: 367   
    TCPClientSOContainer(SOContainer).getAdapter(Class) line: 298   
    ConsumerContainerSelector(AbstractConsumerContainerSelector).createContainer(ContainerTypeDescription, String, Map) line: 205   
    <stuff deleted>

You can see at bottom (ConsumerContainerSelector) that it's creating a container of a particular type (ecf.generic.client) which is passed in via the EndpointDescription sent from remote service via discovery.

The ConsumerContainerSelector.createContainer method has this call to TCPClientSOContainer.getAdapter(IRemoteServiceContainerAdapter.class);

            IRemoteServiceContainerAdapter adapter = (IRemoteServiceContainerAdapter) container

The TCPClientSOContainerAdapter.getAdapter impl has this:

        final IAdapterManager adapterManager = ProviderPlugin.getDefault().getAdapterManager();
        if (adapterManager == null)
            return null;
        return adapterManager.loadAdapter(this, adapter.getName());

Which as you can see from the stack gets the RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory (from org.eclipse.ecf.provider.remoteservice plugin) which ends up calling:

return new RegistrySharedObject();

In org.eclipse.ecf.provider.remoteservice.generic.RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory.createAdapter(ISharedObjectContainer, Class, ID)

If you were to *replace* or *extend* the TCPClientSOContainer, you should be able to circumvent the adapter manager and RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory/RegistrySharedObject by *overriding* the impl of:

<your container class>.getAdapter(Class adapter)

You could modify your impl of getAdapter such that instead of using the adapterManager to load an instance of RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory (which is associated to TCPClientSOContainer in org.eclipse.ecf.provider.remoteservice/plugin.xml) you could create an instance of your subclass of RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory and return the object returned from <your RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFacotry instance>.getAdapter(<your container type>.this, IRemoteServiceContainerAdapter.class) method.   The RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory instance>.getAdapter ends up calling createAdapter.

Your RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory class impl could override org.eclipse.ecf.provider.remoteservice.generic.RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory.createAdapter(ISharedObjectContainer, Class, ID to return a subclass of RegistryShareObject().

Does that make sense?  


a) impl <your container type>.getAdapter

b) instead of using adapter manager/plugin.xml, create your own instance of RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory

c) call it's getAdapter method

d) override your RemoteServiceContainerAdapterFactory.createAdapter method to return your subclass of RegistrySharedObject

Hi Scott,

Not completely sure I understand what you are wanting to do, but you could look at overriding these methods:
Sometime it's not that easy to describe the use-case, but in fact your suggestions were helpful and pointed me in the right direction.

If you want to add to what's sent in every rpc, you could add to the 1 (what client sends) and to 2 (what server received and how processes it) by adding your meta-data to the Request instance that's sent (has to be Serializable of course).

Does that help?
That helped. I'm thinking about replacing

SharedObjectMsg.createMsg(CALL_REQUEST, request)

with my own class which extends SharedObjectMsg and adds the additional meta-data.

Currently I'm looking for the right place to register my own RegistrySharedObject implementation on client side (on server side i already have that).
On client side i already have a IConsumerContainerSelector with an overriden createContainer method, but haven't found a good point to intercept the object creation of RegistrySharedObject. There is a lot of Adapter and Factory stuff going on ;)

Maybe you can suggest a good solution.
