megaco_transport.3erl - Man Page

Megaco transport behaviour.

Description

The following functions should be exported from a megaco_transport callback module:

  • send_message/2 [mandatory]
  • send_message/3 [optional]
  • resend_message/2 [optional]

*

Exports

Module:send_message(Handle, Msg) -> ok | {cancel, Reason} | Error
Module:send_message(Handle, Msg, Resend) -> ok | {cancel, Reason} | Error

Types:

Handle = term()
Msg = binary() | iolist()
Resend = boolean()
Reason = term()
Error = term()

Send a megaco message.

If the function returns {cancel, Reason}, this means the transport module decided not to send the message. This is not an error. No error messages will be issued and no error counters incremented. What actions this will result in depends on what kind of message was sent.

In the case of requests, megaco will cancel the message in much the same way as if megaco:cancel had been called (after a successfull send). The information will be propagated back to the user differently depending on how the request(s) where issued: For requests issued using megaco:call, the info will be delivered in the return value. For requests issued using megaco:cast the info will be delivered via a call to the callback function handle_trans_reply.

In the case of reply, megaco will cancel the reply and information of this will be returned to the user via a call to the callback function handle_trans_ack.

The function send_message/3 will only be called if the resend_indication config option has been set to the value flag. The third argument, Resend then indicates if the message send is a resend or not.

Module:resend_message(Handle, Msg) -> ok | {cancel, Reason} | Error

Types:

Handle = term()
Msg = binary() | iolist()
Reason = term()
Error = term()

Re-send a megaco message.

Note that this function will only be called if the user has set the resend_indication config option to trueand it is in fact a message resend. If not both of these condition's are meet, send_message will be called.

If the function returns {cancel, Reason}, this means the transport module decided not to send the message. This is not an error. No error messages will be issued and no error counters incremented. What actions this will result in depends on what kind of message was sent.

In the case of requests, megaco will cancel the message in much the same way as if megaco:cancel had been called (after a successfull send). The information will be propagated back to the user differently depending on how the request(s) where issued: For requests issued using megaco:call, the info will be delivered in the return value. For requests issued using megaco:cast the info will be delivered via a call to the callback function handle_trans_reply.

In the case of reply, megaco will cancel the reply and information of this will be returned to the user via a call to the callback function handle_trans_ack.
