garlick commented Sep 13, 2017

I noted when implementing some (forthcoming) KVS work that used composite futures (futures within futures, e.g. futures that perform multiple RPCs) that the internal future interfaces were not quite flexible enough to support composite futures, and that we had no tests for composite futures.

This PR makes a minor change to those interfaces, dropping the reactor argument from flux_future_create() and flux_future_init_f, and adding reactor get/set functions.

Tests for several composite future use cases are added and man pages adjusted.

libflux/future: add flux_future_set_reactor()
Problem: a composite future's init function needs
to set up continuations for contained futures
using the reactor it is passed, but the reactor
for the contained futures was pre-set when they
were created.

Drop reactor argument from flux_future_create(),
and add flux_future_set_reactor().  Also, if a flux_t
handle is set with flux_future_set_flux(), set the
set the reactor to the one associated with the flux_t
handle as a side-effect.

For symmetry add flux_future_get_reactor() that behaves
like flux_future_get_flux().

A composite future's init function must call
flux_future_get_flux () on the composite future, and
flux_future set_flux() on the contained futures.
Or if there is no flux_t handle involved, call
flux_future_set_reactor() on the contained future with
reactor passed to the init function.  If neither is
called on a future, flux_future_then() fails with EINVAL.

Update rpc.c and future unit test.
test/future: test composite future
Add a test for a future containing a reactor watcher, and
then a future containing two of those futures.
test/future: add iterative composite future test
Add a test for a future containing an arbitrary number
of futures that are created on the fly from the contained
futures' continuations until the job is done.
libflux/future: drop reactor arg from init callback
Drop the reactor argument from the future's initialization
callback.  It should be accessed in the same manner as
the flux_t handle now that we haver reactor get/set functions.
This makes the API more uniform, and the reactor is often not
used if the future contains message handlers instead of
reactor watchers.

Update rpc implementation and unit test.

Ok, discussed with @garlick offline in a small bit of depth and this is definitely reasonable cleanup at this point. Merging..
