Member Functions


bool invoke(
    ServerTransport & transport,
    RemoteObject::Ptr pRemoteObject

Invoke a method on the RemoteObject.

First, obtains a Deserializer from the given ServerTransport by calling beginRequest(). Then, determines the method name from the request (by calling Deserializer::findMessage()), obtains the MethodHandler for the method and invokes the method using the MethodHandler.

If no MethodHandler is found, a MethodNotFoundException is sent back to the client. If the type of the received message is neither MESSAGE_REQUEST nor MESSAGE_EVENT, a UnexpectedMessageException will be thrown.

After processing the request, endRequest() is called on the ServerTransport.

Returns true if the method was found, false otherwise.

addMethodHandler protected

void addMethodHandler(
    const std::string & name,
    MethodHandler::Ptr pMethodHandler

Adds a MethodHandler for the service object's method with the given name to the Skeleton. Takes ownership of the MethodHandler.
