  1. Server Setup Example - configuring and launching RemoteFsServer.
  2. File Upload Example - uploading file to RemoteFsServer.
  3. File Download Example - downloading file from RemoteFsServer.

To run the examples in an IDE, you need to clone DataKernel locally and import it as a Maven project. Then you should set up default working directory of run configurations in your IDE so that the examples can work correctly. In accordance to DataKernel module structure, the working directory should be set to the module folder.

In IntelliJ IDEA you can do it in the following way: Run -> Edit configurations -> |Run/Debug Configurations -> |Templates -> Application| -> |Working directory -> $MODULE_WORKING_DIR$||.

Before running the example, build the project (Ctrl + F9 for IntelliJ IDEA).

First, open ServerSetupExample class which is located at datakernel -> examples -> remotefs, and run its main() method.

Then, open FileUploadExample class which is located in the same folder, and run its main() method.

Finally, open FileDownloadExample class which is located in the same folder, and also run its main() method.

In the example we upload file "example.txt" to server and then download it back as "download_example.txt".

Let's have a closer look at Server Setup Example. To make setup and launching as simple is possible, there is a special RemoteFsServerLauncher from Launchers module. It allows to setup FS server in less then 30 lines of code:

 public class ServerSetupExample {
 	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
 		Launcher launcher = new RemoteFsServerLauncher() {
 			protected Collection<Module> getOverrideModules() {
 				return asList(
 					//setting server configurations
 						.with("remotefs.path", "src/main/resources/server_storage")
 						.with("remotefs.listenAddresses", "6732")
 					new AbstractModule() {
 						//creating an eventloop for our server
 						Eventloop eventloop() {
 							return Eventloop.create()
 		//launch our server, EAGER_SINGLETON_MODE variable is already defined in RemoteFsServerLauncher 
 		launcher.launch(parseBoolean(System.getProperty(EAGER_SINGLETONS_MODE)), args);

File upload and download examples have alike implementations. Both of them extend Launcher and thus implement run() method which defines the main behaviour of the launcher. Also, both of the examples utilize CSP module - uploader uses ChannelFileReader while downloader uses ChannelFileWriter. They allow to asynchronously read/write data from/to files.

Let's analyze File Upload Example run() method:

protected void run() throws Exception {
	//post() method posts a new task to local tasks -> {
		//creating a producer which reads files and streams them to consumer
		ChannelFileReader producer = null;
		try {
			producer = ChannelFileReader.readFile(executor, CLIENT_STORAGE.resolve(FILE_NAME))
		} catch (IOException e) {
			throw new UncheckedException(e);
		//upload() uploads our file
		ChannelConsumer<ByteBuf> consumer = ChannelConsumer.ofPromise(client.upload(FILE_NAME));

		//consumer result here is a marker of successful upload
			.whenComplete(($, e) -> {
				if (e != null) {
					logger.error("Error while uploading file {}", FILE_NAME, e);
				} else {"Client uploaded file {}", FILE_NAME);

File Upload Example has a resembling run() implementation.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
