Don't block thread when making new connection in BamClientPool #319

Given we are using a non-blocking web framework now we shouldn't block the controller threads. However, the comit_client::ClientFactory::client_for method currently blocks when it has to create a new connection. It should instead return a Future for that connection.

It should also keep track of when it is already connecting to something and return a future which resolves when the existing connection attempt completes.

Use ItemCache to return/create a future for a given COMIT node. The future Item is a Arc<ComitClient>


  • client_for returns a future

Maybe we can check existing implementations of HTTP client libraries in how they do this.

@thomaseizinger great idea. I took a look at hyper:

It does roughly what we discussed (I think):

  1. Upon new client request, record that you are in the connecting state for that connection start connecting.
  2. Return a oneshot::Receiver to the caller and store a oneshot::Sender in HashMap<IpAddr, Vec<Sender>>.
  3. Any new connection requests for the same host get returned a oneshot::Receiver as well
  4. When the connection is established and the client is created iterate over the oneshot::Senders and send a .clone() of the Arc<Client> to them.

The problem that HTTP clients are solving is a little different I guess because at least with HTTP 1.1 you have to wait until idle to get the connection where as with our thing we can just give everyone clients at the same time without issues.
