Chapter 7: The ACE Acceptor-Connector Framework

This chapter describes the design and use of the ACE Acceptor-Connector framework. This framework implements the Acceptor-Connector pattern, which decouples the connection and initialization of cooperating peer services in a networked application from the processing they perform after being connected and initialized. The Acceptor-Connector framework allows applications to configure key properties of their connection topologies independently from the services they provide. We illustrate how this framework can be combined with the ACE Reactor and Task frameworks and applied to enhance the reusability, extensibility, security, and scalability of our networked logging service.
