Class: DRb::GWIdConv (Ruby 2.3.4)

DRb::GWIdConv

Gateway id conversion forms a gateway between different DRb protocols or networks.

The gateway needs to install this id conversion and create servers for each of the protocols or networks it will be a gateway between. It then needs to create a server that attaches to each of these networks. For example:

require 'drb/drb'
require 'drb/unix'
require 'drb/gw'

DRb.install_id_conv DRb::GWIdConv.new
gw = DRb::GW.new
s1 = DRb::DRbServer.new 'drbunix:/path/to/gateway', gw
s2 = DRb::DRbServer.new 'druby://example:10000', gw

s1.thread.join
s2.thread.join

Each client must register services with the gateway, for example:

DRb.start_service 'drbunix:', nil # an anonymous server
gw = DRbObject.new nil, 'drbunix:/path/to/gateway'
gw[:unix] = some_service
DRb.thread.join
