Interface RequestProcessor

All Known Implementing Classes:
JmsRequestProcessor, LocalRequestProcessor

public interface RequestProcessor
The RequestProcessor is responsible for receiving Request objects from a RequestDispatcher and processing them. Implementations may expose themselves in a number of ways, such as plain java method calls, RMI connections or JMS connections. Implementations are responsible for decoding the Request object and encoding the Response object.

A single RequestProcessor is always supposed to communicate with only a single RequestDispatcher, for simplicity and ease of possible network configurations.
