ZKLUA: an one-minute introduction for beginners

Zklua is the first(as far as I know) lua binding of apache zookeeper. If you are wondering what is apache zookeeper, please visit the zookeeper official website to get more information about it, hereinafter is an one-sentence description that can inform of you what is apache zookeeper:

ZooKeeper is a high-performance coordination service for distributed applications. It exposes common services - such as naming, configuration management, synchronization, and group services - in a simple interface so you don't have to write them from scratch. You can use it off-the-shelf to implement consensus, group management, leader election, and presence protocols.

Zklua provides a complete API binding of Lua for apache zookeeper(hereinafter referred to as zookeeper), including synchronous and asynchronous interface as well as some useful auxiliary APIs. That is, you may create/delete/get/update(CRUD) a zookeeper node(ZNode) in lua language synchronously and/or asynchronously without any pains.

How to build zklua

Prepare to build zklua

First of all, you have to get zklua source code from github:

$ git clone git@github.com:forhappy/zklua.git

Dependencies

Zklua has no other dependencies except for zookeeper c API implementation, which usually resides in zookeeper-X.Y.Z/src/c, hence you need to install zookeeper c API at first.

Install zklua

all you have to do is just a make to compile zklua:

$ make

If you want to install zklua into your system after you have compiled zklua, you need to make install(as root):

$ make install

Examples

Deleting a ZNode.

Here is a tiny lua example to show you deleting a ZNode from zookeeper server.

require "zklua"

function zklua_my_watcher(zh, type, state, path, watcherctx)
    if type == zklua.ZOO_SESSION_EVENT then
        if state == zklua.ZOO_CONNECTED_STATE then
            print("Connected to zookeeper service successfully!\n");
            elseif (state == ZOO_EXPIRED_SESSION_STATE) then
            print("Zookeeper session expired!\n");
        end
    end
end

function zklua_my_void_completion(rc, data)
    print("zklua_my_void_completion:\n")
    print("rc: "..rc.."\tdata: "..data)
end

zklua.set_log_stream("zklua.log")

zh = zklua.init("127.0.0.1:2181,127.0.0.1:2182,127.0.0.1:2183", zklua_my_watcher, 10000)

ret = zklua.adelete(zh, "/zklua", -1, zklua_my_void_completion, "zklua adelete.")
print("zklua.adelete ret: "..ret)

print("hit any key to continue...")
io.read()

Set watch on a specified path.

Here is a tiny lua example to show you set a watch on a specified path.

require "zklua"

function zklua_my_global_watcher(zh, type, state, path, watcherctx)
    if type == zklua.ZOO_SESSION_EVENT then
        if state == zklua.ZOO_CONNECTED_STATE then
            print("Connected to zookeeper service successfully!\n");
         elseif (state == ZOO_EXPIRED_SESSION_STATE) then
            print("Zookeeper session expired!\n");
        end
    end
end

function zklua_my_local_watcher(zh, type, state, path, watcherctx)
    print("zklua_my_local_watcher(".."type: "..type..", state: "..state..", path: "..path..")")
    print("zklua_my_local_watcher(".."watcherctx: "..watcherctx..")")
end

function zklua_my_stat_completion(rc, stat, data)
    print("zklua_my_stat_completion:\n")
    print("rc: "..rc.."\tdata: "..data)
end

zklua.set_log_stream("zklua.log")

zh = zklua.init("127.0.0.1:2181,127.0.0.1:2182,127.0.0.1:2183", zklua_my_global_watcher, 10000)

ret = zklua.awexists(zh, "/zklua",
                     zklua_my_local_watcher,"zklua_my_local_watcher",
                     zklua_my_stat_completion, "zklua aexists.")
print("zklua.aexists ret: "..ret)

print("hit any key to continue...")
io.read()
