Class Seti

All Implemented Interfaces:
org.eclipse.jetty.util.component.Dumpable, org.eclipse.jetty.util.component.LifeCycle

@ManagedObject("CometD cloud peer discovery component") public class Seti extends org.eclipse.jetty.util.component.AbstractLifeCycle implements org.eclipse.jetty.util.component.Dumpable

The component that Searches for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence or, in this case, just searches for a user logged onto a comet in an Oort cloud.

Seti allows an application to maintain a mapping from userId (any application identifier such as user names or database IDs that represent users) to server sessions using the associate(String, ServerSession) and disassociate(String, ServerSession) methods.

A typical example of usage of associate(String, ServerSession) is in a SecurityPolicy after a successful handshake (where authentication information can be linked with the server session), or in CometD services where the association is established upon receiving a message on a particular channel processed by the service itself.

Each comet in the cluster keeps its own mapping for clients connected to it.

The sendMessage(Collection, String, Object) and sendMessage(String, String, Object) methods may be used to send messages to user(s) anywhere in the Oort cluster and Seti organizes the search in order to locate the user(s).
