WEBrick::GenericServer

Base TCP server class. You must subclass GenericServer and provide a run method.

Attributes

config[R]

The server configuration

listeners[R]

Sockets listening for connections.

logger[R]

The server logger. This is independent from the HTTP access log.

status[R]

The server status. One of :Stop, :Running or :Shutdown

tokens[R]

Tokens control the number of outstanding clients. The :MaxClients configuration sets this.

Public Class Methods

new(config={}, default=Config::General) click to toggle source

Creates a new generic server from config. The default configuration comes from default.

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 94
def initialize(config={}, default=Config::General)
  @config = default.dup.update(config)
  @status = :Stop
  @config[:Logger] ||= Log::new
  @logger = @config[:Logger]

  @tokens = SizedQueue.new(@config[:MaxClients])
  @config[:MaxClients].times{ @tokens.push(nil) }

  webrickv = WEBrick::VERSION
  rubyv = "#{RUBY_VERSION} (#{RUBY_RELEASE_DATE}) [#{RUBY_PLATFORM}]"
  @logger.info("WEBrick #{webrickv}")
  @logger.info("ruby #{rubyv}")

  @listeners = []
  unless @config[:DoNotListen]
    if @config[:Listen]
      warn(":Listen option is deprecated; use GenericServer#listen")
    end
    listen(@config[:BindAddress], @config[:Port])
    if @config[:Port] == 0
      @config[:Port] = @listeners[0].addr[1]
    end
  end
end
            

Public Instance Methods

[](key) click to toggle source

Retrieves key from the configuration

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 123
def [](key)
  @config[key]
end
            
listen(address, port) click to toggle source

Adds listeners from address and port to the server. See WEBrick::Utils.create_listeners for details.

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 131
def listen(address, port)
  @listeners += Utils::create_listeners(address, port, @logger)
end
            
run(sock) click to toggle source

You must subclass GenericServer and implement #run which accepts a TCP client socket

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 246
def run(sock)
  @logger.fatal "run() must be provided by user."
end
            
shutdown() click to toggle source

Shuts down the server and all listening sockets. New listeners must be provided to restart the server.

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 219
def shutdown
  stop
  @listeners.each{|s|
    if @logger.debug?
      addr = s.addr
      @logger.debug("close TCPSocket(#{addr[2]}, #{addr[1]})")
    end
    begin
      s.shutdown
    rescue Errno::ENOTCONN
      # when `Errno::ENOTCONN: Socket is not connected' on some platforms,
      # call #close instead of #shutdown.
      # (ignore @config[:ShutdownSocketWithoutClose])
      s.close
    else
      unless @config[:ShutdownSocketWithoutClose]
        s.close
      end
    end
  }
  @listeners.clear
end
            
start(&block) click to toggle source

Starts the server and runs the block for each connection. This method does not return until the server is stopped from a signal handler or another thread using stop or shutdown.

If the block raises a subclass of StandardError the exception is logged and ignored. If an IOError or Errno::EBADF exception is raised the exception is ignored. If an Exception subclass is raised the exception is logged and re-raised which stops the server.

To completely shut down a server call shutdown from ensure:

server = WEBrick::GenericServer.new
# or WEBrick::HTTPServer.new

begin
  server.start
ensure
  server.shutdown
end
 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 156
def start(&block)
  raise ServerError, "already started." if @status != :Stop
  server_type = @config[:ServerType] || SimpleServer

  server_type.start{
    @logger.info            "#{self.class}#start: pid=#{$$} port=#{@config[:Port]}"
    call_callback(:StartCallback)

    thgroup = ThreadGroup.new
    @status = :Running
    begin
      while @status == :Running
        begin
          if svrs = IO.select(@listeners, nil, nil, 2.0)
            svrs[0].each{|svr|
              @tokens.pop          # blocks while no token is there.
              if sock = accept_client(svr)
                sock.do_not_reverse_lookup = config[:DoNotReverseLookup]
                th = start_thread(sock, &block)
                th[:WEBrickThread] = true
                thgroup.add(th)
              else
                @tokens.push(nil)
              end
            }
          end
        rescue Errno::EBADF, IOError => ex
          # if the listening socket was closed in GenericServer#shutdown,
          # IO::select raise it.
        rescue StandardError => ex
          msg = "#{ex.class}: #{ex.message}\n\t#{ex.backtrace[0]}"
          @logger.error msg
        rescue Exception => ex
          @logger.fatal ex
          raise
        end
      end

    ensure
      @status = :Shutdown
      @logger.info "going to shutdown ..."
      thgroup.list.each{|th| th.join if th[:WEBrickThread] }
      call_callback(:StopCallback)
      @logger.info "#{self.class}#start done."
      @status = :Stop
    end
  }
end
            
stop() click to toggle source

Stops the server from accepting new connections.

 
               # File webrick/server.rb, line 209
def stop
  if @status == :Running
    @status = :Shutdown
  end
end
