ZMQ::Declare::Application - A ZMQ::Declare Application object
use ZMQ::Declare; # See synopsis for ZMQ::Declare
ZMQ::Declare::Application object represents any number of 0MQ devices that share the same 0MQ threading context. As such, an application conceptually maps to a single process.
These are accessible with normal mutator methods.
The name of the application. This is required to be unique in a ZDCF file.
A reference to the underlying ZDCF specification object.
Constructor taking named arguments (see properties above). Typically, you should obtain your
ZMQ::Declare::Application objects by calling
application($application_name) on a ZMQ::Declare::ZDCF object instead of using
Given a device name, creates a ZMQ::Declare::Device object from the information stored in the application and returns that object.
ZMQ::Declare::Device object is what you can use to actually implement 0MQ devices that are configured through ZDCF. Note that creating a
ZMQ::Declare::Device object does not create any 0MQ contexts, sockets, or connections yet, you need to call
run() on the device for that.
As a convenience, the device name defaults to the application name if none is provided. This is to cater to the cases of simple applications that have only one device that needs not have a different name than the application itself.
Returns a list (not a reference) of device names that are known to the application.
Creates a ZeroMQ::Context object from the application and returns it. In other words, this creates the actual threading context of 0MQ. Generally, this is called indirectly by using the
device method to obtain a
ZMQ::Declare::Device object and then calling the
make_runtime methods on that.
Repeated calls to
get_context will return the same threading context object.
