Client Architecture

We had a brief look at MINA based Server Architecture, lets see how Client looks like. Clients need to connect to a Server, send message and process the responses.

  • Client first creates an IOConnector (MINA Construct for connecting to Socket), initiates a bind with Server
  • Upon Connection creation, a Session is created and is associated with Connection
  • Application/Client writes to the Session, resulting in data being sent to Server, after traversing the Filter Chain
  • All the responses/messages received from Server are traverses the Filter Chain and lands at IOHandler, for processing
