Event Pushing

The pushing approach has the same requirement for events to be marked “delivered”. The same consumer may event mix usage of polling and receiving pushed events in very specific cases.

There must be a BiDirectional channel between Invoker and Executor. Consumer establishes such channel with initial call to start receiving events. Then event generating peer starts to push events through callbacks efficient way.

PushService configuration

PushService extends PollService and supports all its options with addition of the following for DBPushService:

  • sleep_min=100 - minimal sleep in milliseconds on lack of unread events.
  • sleep_max=3000 - maximal sleep in milliseconds on lack of unread events.
  • sleep_step=100 - sleep time increase on lack of events.

Registration for reliable delivery

The same as for polling.

Start receiving events

  • readyToReceive(as, component, want)

    • parameters have the same meaning as in polling.
    • start sending events through receiver callbacks upon completion of the call.

A child class of ReliableReceiverService should be created to properly handle incoming events. A bi-directional channel like WebSockets or Internal must be used.

A separate Executor instance should be created for use in endpoint callbacks.

As with polling, processing must be available of possibly repeated event deliveries!

class UserReceiver extends ReliableReceiverService
    _onEvents( as, reqinfo, events ) {
        // ...
        for ( let evt of events ) {
            const { id, type, data, ts } = evt;
            // be aware of repeatable processing!

const executor = Executor(ccm);
UserReceiver.register(as, executor);
PushFace.register(as, ccm, '#evtpush', endpoint, credentials, { executor } );

const evtpush = ccm.iface('#evtpush');
evtpush.registerConsumer(as, 'Component');
evtpush.readyToReceive(as, 'Component');

As it’s quite a lot of boilerplate code, please consider using EventReceiver helper instead.
