RingProvider uses a RingServer advertised TupleSpace as a name service. TupleSpace clients can register themselves with the remote TupleSpace and look up other provided services via the remote TupleSpace.
Services are registered with a tuple of the format [:name, klass, DRbObject, description].
Creates a RingProvider that will provide a
klass service running on
front, with a
renewer is optional.
# File lib/rinda/ring.rb, line 468 def initialize(klass, front, desc, renewer = nil) @tuple = [:name, klass, front, desc] @renewer = renewer || Rinda::SimpleRenewer.new end
Advertises this service on the primary remote TupleSpace.
# File lib/rinda/ring.rb, line 476 def provide ts = Rinda::RingFinger.primary ts.write(@tuple, @renewer) end
