Called by an actor to send an envelope on a output

service ClientAPI

ProcessNodeReady(NoRequest)
Arguments:
  • argNoRequest
Returns:

ProcessNodeReadyEvent

Envelope(NoRequest)
Arguments:
  • argNoRequest

EnvelopeEvent

service Director

Orchestrate the actor processings.

ProcessingEnd(ActorProcessingState)
Arguments:
Returns:

Void

Returns:

Void

service EnvelopeStorage

Gives access to the stored envelopes

Arguments:
Returns:

EnvelopeFragmentAndPosition

Retrieve an envelope from a given position The envelope is returned as a stream of envelope fragments.

Methods for an emitter to query its process states

Envelope(NoRequest)
Arguments:
  • argNoRequest
Returns:

EmitterEnvelopeState

Returns the process states associated to an envelope

service Sentinel

Survey(NoRequest)
Arguments:
  • argNoRequest
Returns:

SurveyRequest

All actors should subscribe to this function and act accordingly to the received SurveyRequest

ActorReady(Void)
