Interface Summary
Channel Channel interface
A channel is a representation of a group of nodes all participating in some sort of communication with each other.
ChannelInterceptor A ChannelInterceptor is an interceptor that intercepts messages and membership messages in the channel stack.
ChannelInterceptor.InterceptorEvent  
ChannelListener Title: ChannelListener Description: An interface to listens to incoming messages from a channel When a message is received, the Channel will invoke the channel listener in a conditional sequence.
ChannelMessage Message that is passed through the interceptor stack after the data serialized in the Channel object and then passed down to the interceptor and eventually down to the ChannelSender component
ChannelReceiver ChannelReceiver Interface
The ChannelReceiver interface is the data receiver component at the bottom layer, the IO layer (for layers see the javadoc for the Channel interface).
ChannelSender ChannelReceiver Interface
The ChannelSender interface is the data sender component at the bottom layer, the IO layer (for layers see the javadoc for the Channel interface).
ErrorHandler The ErrorHandler class is used when sending messages that are sent asynchronously and the application still needs to get confirmation when the message was sent successfully or when a message errored out.
Heartbeat Can be implemented by the ChannelListener and Membership listeners to receive heartbeat notifications from the Channel
ManagedChannel Channel interface A managed channel interface gives you access to the components of the channels such as senders, receivers, interceptors etc for configurations purposes
Member The Member interface, defines a member in the group.
MembershipListener The MembershipListener interface is used as a callback to the membership service.
MembershipService MembershipService Interface
The MembershipService interface is the membership component at the bottom layer, the IO layer (for layers see the javadoc for the Channel interface).
MessageListener Title: MessageListener Description: The listener to be registered with the ChannelReceiver, internal Tribes component
 

Class Summary
ByteMessage A byte message is not serialized and deserialized by the channel instead it is sent as a byte array
By default Tribes uses java serialization when it receives an object to be sent over the wire.
ChannelException.FaultyMember Title: FaultyMember class Description: Represent a failure to a specific member when a message was sent to more than one member
Constants Manifest constants for the org.apache.catalina.tribes package.
UniqueId Title: Represents a globabally unique Id Company:
 

Exception Summary
ChannelException Channel Exception
A channel exception is thrown when an internal error happens somewhere in the channel.
RemoteProcessException Title: RemoteProcessException Description: Message thrown by a sender when USE_SYNC_ACK receives a FAIL_ACK_COMMAND.

Apache Tribes - The Tomcat Cluster Communication Module

QuickStart


            //create a channel
            Channel myChannel = new GroupChannel();

            //create my listeners
            MyMessageListener msgListener = new MyMessageListener();
            MyMemberListener mbrListener = new MyMemberListener();

            //attach the listeners to the channel
            myChannel.addMembershipListener(mbrListener);
            myChannel.addChannelListener(msgListener);

            //start the channel
            myChannel.start(Channel.DEFAULT);

            //create a message to be sent, message must implement java.io.Serializable
            //for performance reasons you probably want them to implement java.io.Externalizable
            Serializable myMsg = new MyMessage();

            //retrieve my current members
            Member[] group = myChannel.getMembers();

            //send the message
            channel.send(group,myMsg,Channel.SEND_OPTIONS_DEFAULT);
