XCMD Corner: HyperAppleTalk IV

I sometimes think that, to most programmers, the network is best left to the handful of specialists that ply their craft on this arcane art.

Think of the network as adding a new dimension to your programs, much as perspective enabled medieval artists to add depth and realism to their paintings. While many artists may have scoffed at perspective, I have no trouble believing that the populace was awed by its discovery. Perhaps networking will shine the same light as we enter the renaissance of computer programming.

If you’ve been following this column over the last three months, you may be asking yourself, “Are we there yet?” This month, we tie the pieces together by introducing the rest of AppleTalk XCMDs. I apologize for publishing listings last month that you can’t really use until this month. I hope this issue makes up for it and in the future I will do my best to provide “soup to nuts” code in each issue.

Conceptually, an AppleTalk interface can be reduced to the six steps: (1) Open access to the transaction protocol and allocate any memory that will be needed to interface to it. I chose the AppleTalk Data Stream Protocol(ADSP). ADSPOpen hooks us up to ADSP, establishes a connection listener and returns the connection listener’s socket address to Hypercard. NBPOpen initializes a data structure that we use to interface to NBP. The January ’89 issue of this column provides the code for these XCMDs.

(2) Given the address of the connection listener, register a name and type with the network using the name binding protocol. Once registered, our entity’s name and address will be listed in the “directory”.

(3) If we want to be able to “dial up” other entities, we next perform a lookup which returns all current names in the lookup table which acts just like a directory. The names are returned as a list of items to Hypercard without their addresses. This step is optional, if all you expect to do is respond to requests (as in the case of a server), then you don’t need to know the names of the requesting entities.

(4) To call another entity, invoke the ADSPCall XCMD with the entity’s name. ADSPCall extracts the network address from the lookup table using the routine “NBPGetAddress”. This technique allows us to de-couple names and addresses; your stacks need never be concerned with the address of an entity, the name is sufficient at the Hypercard script level.

(5) Once a connection is established with another entity (called the remote end), you send information to that entity using ADSPTalk. You receive information from the remote end using ADSPListen. ADSPListen is the heart of the interface, in addition to checking for incoming messages, it also monitors the status of all open connections.

(6) When the session completes, remove your name from the names table using the NBPUnregister XFCN. Once unregistered, close down the interface to ADSP with the ADSPClose and then close down your NBP interface with NBPClose.

--The XCMDS--

While the process is conceptually quite simple, the amount of code needed to implement this interface may seem overwhelming. The rest of this article focuses on ADSPCall, ADSPTalk, ADSPListen and ADSPHangup. Information on both NBP and the open and close xcmds are available in that last two installments of this column as well as in recently published literature from APDA.

(1) ADSPCall

ADSPCall (listing 1) first extracts the address of the entity from the lookup table using NBPGetAddress. If you pass it the name of a currently visible entity, you have a reasonable assurance that the call will complete.

Upon retrieving the address, adspcall walks the connection list checking to see if a connection already exists with the remote end. If not, it creates a connection by calling DSPCreate.

Outgoing calls are placed asynchronously, control is passed back to Hypercard while the call completes in the “background”. Asynchronous communications pays big dividends, adspcall attempts to establish the connection as many times as you request in the retry field. Waiting for a call to complete can “hang” the system, a particularly uncomfortable state for the user. If for any reason, the remote end has gone off line, Hypercard won’t be stuck with an unbearable delay waiting for the call to timeout.

Outgoing calls, like all other transactions on the network, must be monitored by the listener. ADSPListen detects when the remote end picks up the phone.

To invoke ADSPCall from your script, use the following command line:

--1

-- get the name of the entity from the lookup table.
-- We let HyperAppleTalk handle the defaults for
-- retry, interval and buffer size. 
--
-- The two above globals will have been initialized by
-- NBPOpen and ADSPOpen respectively.
--
global globalNBPData, globalADSPData
ADSPCall theEntity

(2) ADSPTalk

Once a connection is established with a remote end, we can send messages to that entity. Like ADSPCall, ADSPTalk uses NBPGetAddress to get the address given a name. Because NBPGetAddress returns 0 if the name had no corresponding address in the lookup table, we can determine whether we have a connection to the remote end. ADSPTalk scans the connection list to match the address with that of an entity in our connection list (pointed to bey adsp^.ends). AdspTalk calls DSPTalk (covered last month) to send the information. Outgoing messages are also sent asynchronously so that the user is not made to suffer any delays while the transmission completes.

Like ADSPCall, the method of invoking ADSPTalk is straightforward:

--2

-- “theEntity” is the name of the remote end that you
-- called using ADSPCall and the card field contains the 
-- data that you wish to send to the remote end.
--
global globalNBPData, globalADSPData
ADSPTalk theEntity, card field “outgoing message”

(3) ADSPListen

The quality of any conversation depends more on the skill of the listener than that of the talker. This is no less true for the network - talking is the easy part, the listener does the hard part. Like any good listener, ADSPListen must perform several tasks at once -- (1) Answer incoming calls, (2) Monitor the status of outgoing calls, (3) Receive incoming messages and (4) periodically check the status of each connection.

Putting ADSPListen in the idle method of a card or stack provides a method for periodically checking up on each connection.

For each established connection an entry exists in our adsp^.ends list. While most of the data stored in the connection (cn) block is for our own use, the network keeps us apprised of the connection’s status via two records: the parameter block (pb) and the connection control block (ccb). The parameter block behaves as it would for any low-level I/O on the Macintosh, it is the interface to the ADSP device driver. The connection block is used by adsp to keep us up to date on the status of each connection. In essence, we relinquish control of the parameter block and the connection control block to ADSP. The rest of the structures in the connection data are for our own use.

To determine what is going on in any connection, we check the state field in the connection control block. The following states are currently supported (see listing 2 for the corresponding code):

sClosed: The connection went down for some reason or other. At this point, we have no choice but to Hang up.

sOpen: A connection opens in stages. When we first create or detect an opening connection, we set the mode to NOP indicating the connection is only “half open”. A half open connection is one in which only one of the two ends is ready. Receiving the sOpen state from the remote end informs us that our connection is now open.

A connection that is already open signals that it’s closing with the “eClosed” message. If a connection is closing, hang up on it.

The next two tasks, talking and listening, are monitored by Checkmessages. Recall that ADSPTalk queues outgoing calls; they complete some time in the future. Similarly, incoming messages can complete at any time. To determine whether any incoming or outgoing messages need attention, we issue a Status call to adsp. The ioCrefNum field of the dspParamBlock in checkMessages gets the driver number of the adsp driver. The ccbRefnum field gets the connection number of the connection we are checking.

The status call is issued synchronously, we must wait for it to complete before testing the status of a connection. If recvQPending is not 0, we have an incoming block of data. On input, we call ReadADSPData which will accumulate the data into the connection’s input buffer until ADSP signals that there is no more data with the end-of-message flag (eom).

ReadADSPData will read data from the connection’s input buffer into the handle we stored in conn^.inbuf (see listing 3). Accumulating data is a simple task : resize the handle by the number of bytes that we need to read in (given to us by adsp in recvQpending. If recvQpending is 0, there are no bytes to read). Once the handle is resized, point to the old end of the handle, and read the data directly into that are in memory. The read returns the exact number of bytes read in. If that number differs from recvQPending (under ordinary circumstances this won’t happen), then resize the handle to reflect the actual number of bytes read in.

After reading the data, we check the end-of-message flag (eom) which ADSP sets only after it sends the last block of the message down stream. If eom is set, there is no more data to read. We can now send the data back to hypercard. If we know the name of the connection, we send it back to hypercard via the ‘ADSPCaller’ global container. This gives your stack a way of determining who sent the input data. The data itself is put in the hypercard container, ‘HyperADSPData’. Once the data and name have been reported to Hypercard, we can optionally send a message back, perhaps to invoke some special input processing. If the connection stored a message in its ‘callme’ field, we now invoke that message via a callback.

Monitoring outgoing calls is a bit simpler. If the connection’s sendQPending field is not 0, we still have outgoing data in the output buffer. In this case, don’t do anything. If on the other hand, the send queue has emptied out and there was data in it (the connection outbuf field is not nil), then dispose the memory currently occupied by the output data.

The last task that ADSPListen must handle is responding to incoming calls. It does this by calling its respondtoListen Procedure. If a connection request is pending, the connection listener’s ioResult will be set to noErr (a negative result means an error occurred, a positive result means that no connection requests are pending, the listener still has its ears to the wall).

If a connection request is pending, we can open up a connection to the remote end whose address is passed in the remoteCID field. Once the connection is established,we can try to discover its name by issuing a call to NBPGetName with the pending connection’s name. Knowing the name of an incoming caller is optional so we don’t take extraordinary efforts to discover the name. If however, you needed the entities name (as in the case of a game), then you can do a lookup if NBPGetName turns up empty-handed. This is an advanced feature and, in the interest of space, I’ve omitted it. If you absolutely need this capability, drop me a line.

Once the pending request is serviced, the connection listener can put its ear back to the wall by requeuing the connection listener call. The information needed to queue a listening request is already stored in the connection listener’s parameter block (adsp^.pb). Requeuing the request becomes a simple call to PBControl with the connections parameter block.

The following script, added to your card, will do the trick:

--3

on idle

global globalNBPdata, globalADSPData
global adspCaller-- name of the caller global HyperADSPData    
 -- where incoming data goes
--
 ADSPListen “ShowData”

end idle

-- Show data is the method to invoke to handle
-- incoming data.  Assuming that we have a card field
-- named “show me”, the following method will display the
-- incoming message:
--
on ShowData
 global HyperADSPData

 put HyperAdspData into card field “show me”
end showdata

(4) ADSPHangup

We’ve already seen how to detect and respond to a connection hanging up on us. Use ADSPHangup (listing 4) to inform the remote end that the connection is going down. Once again, the drill is the same: get the address from the lookup table, check to see that a connection exists with this entity and call DSPHangup to inform the entity that the connection is going down. We don’t remove the connection from the connection list at this point because we have to wait for the remote end to acknowledge our disconnection request. ADSPListen receives this acknowledgement in the form of an eClosed message. Once closed, we can tear down the connection and deallocate its memory (dspRemove).

 global HyperADSPData, globalNBPData

 ADSPHangup theEntity
End Disconnect

You now have a reasonably complete interface to AppleTalk. ADSP and NBP both offer more features than I’ve been able to show you in a short time. Notably, the out of stream and forward reset features of ADSP enable some very powerful enhancements to the basic protocol. I chose not to discuss these features in this series because the average application can get by quite well without them. If, however, you are writing a network server in Hypercard, you may want to explore these features in more detail. I will be happy to present the code for a full implementation of ADSP. In keeping with the spirit of MacTutor, contact me immediately to report any bugs in the code. I can be reached through this Magazine or on AppleLink (N0735) or MacNet.

Next month, I’m going to switch gears back into low and explore the file manager from within Hypercard.
