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.
