jnano

Java binding for the nanomsg library.

What is this?

This package contains a JNI-based Java binding for nanomsg, the communications and synchronization library.

How to Use

You will need the following:

  1. A copy of the JDK. The binding has been tested on v1.7.0_21 running on a Windows 7 machine.

  2. A copy of ant. I use v1.8.4.

  3. A C compiler. I use MSVC 2010.

  4. A copy of cpptasks, an ant helper that automates compilation of C code. I use v1.0b5. You can find a copy in the lib/ant directory; therefore, you can run ant with ant -lib lib/ant/cpptasks-1.0b5.jar jar to use the included cpptasks.

  5. Look at the build.<OS>.properties file for your OS. Pay particular attention to the value of dir.jni.headers.

Once your environment is set up and you have downloaded jnano, you can do any of these:

  • ant jar -- create all JARs.

  • ant test -- run all unit tests (none for now).

  • ant run -- run a specific class in one of the JARs, such as Tester. See below.

  • ant perf -- run performance tests. See below.

To run a basic tester class, run this on a command window:

ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.Tester run

To run the latency performance test for inproc sockets, run this on a command window:

ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.inproc_lat -Dargs="1 100000" perf

To run the throughput performance test for inproc sockets, run this on a command window:

ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.inproc_thr -Dargs="100 100000" perf

To run the latency performance test for TCP sockets, run this on two separate command windows:

ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.local_lat -Dargs="tcp://127.0.0.1:6789 1 100000" perf ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.remote_lat -Dargs="tcp://127.0.0.1:6789 1 100000" perf

To run the throughput performance test for TCP sockets, run this on two separate command windows:

ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.local_thr -Dargs="tcp://127.0.0.1:6789 100 100000" perf ant -Dcn=org.nanomsg.remote_thr -Dargs="tcp://127.0.0.1:6789 100 100000" perf

Status

This is a work in progress.

Everything works pretty well and performance is comparable to what you get on C.

I am still looking for the right way to integrate the polling support provided by nanomsg into the native Java way of doing demultiplexing.
