JGSL_server

OBSOLETED use JGSL_grid instead: When a jabber server receives a message from the client, it will accept it or reject it. If accepted, it will reply so and create a JGSL_client_agent character on the server computer if it has never been created before. This JGSL_client_agent will be responsible to keep track of an active client on the server.

Member Functions

JGSL_server.Reset

 server session key, it is regenerated each time we load a different world.
JGSL_server.SessionKey = ParaGlobal.GenerateUniqueID();

 server version
JGSL_server.ServerVersion = 1;

 required client version
JGSL_server.ClientVersion = 1;


 the agent of the current player
JGSL_server.playeragent = nil;

 timer ID
JGSL_server.TimerID = 17;

 contains all client and server agent creation and environmental action history. 
JGSL_server.history = {
   creations = {},
   env = {},
}

max number of creations in a message JGSL_server.max_creations_per_msg = 5; max number of env updates in a message JGSL_server.max_env_per_msg = 5;

a timer that is enabled when there are active client connected to this server. should be smaller or equal to NormalUpdateInterval to prevent duplicate group2 info to be sent for the same client. TimerInterval = 3000;

if a client is not responding in 20 seconds, we will make it inactive user and remove from active user list. ClientTimeOut = 20000;

if true, the game server is a dedicated server usually without any user interface. Pure server will use a different restart function. IsPureServer = nil;

a new character will be located at radius = miniSpawnRadius+math.sqrt(OnlineUserNum+1)*3; JGSL_server.miniSpawnRadius = 5;

When the server has broadcasted this number of objects, the server will be automatically restarted; this is usually the setting for testing public server. RestartOnCreateNum = tonumber(GetAppCommandLineByParam("RestartOnCreateNum", "0"));

client agents on server, where JGSL_server.agents[JID] = {agent}. JGSL_server.agents = {};


public function
regenerate session and become a new server. This is usually called by Map3DSystem.JGSL.Reset() call this to reset the server to inital disconnected state where there is a new session key, no history, no timer, no agents.

syntax

function JGSL_server.GetAgent(JID)

parameters

JID  

JGSL_server.CreateAgent

create an agent. it will overwrite existing one, if any, with a newly created one.

syntax

function JGSL_server.CreateAgent(JID)

parameters

JID

 some statistics
JGSL_server.statistics = {
   StartTime = ParaGlobal.GetDateFormat(nil)..ParaGlobal.GetTimeFormat(nil),
   OnlineUserNum = 0,
   VisitsSinceStart = 0,
   NumObjectCreated = 0,
}

clear all history. call this function when a server restart.

syntax

function JGSL_server.history.clear()

JGSL_server.history.AddCreations

when the server receives some client updates that contains creations, it will save all clients' creations to an array. At normal update time, the server will broadcast previous creations to the clients.

  • param creations : an array of creation history
  • param fromJID : who added this creations.

function JGSL_server.history.AddEnvs(env, fromJID)

parameters

env an array of env history
fromJID  

JGSL_server.history.GetCreationsForClientAgent

get an array of creations from the server creation history.

  • param agent : the agent for whom creations will be retrieved. In fact, it will return all creations who time is larger than agent.LastCreationHistoryTime, and whose agent.fromJID is different from the one in creation history.
  • param MaxCount : nil or max number of creations to return. This prevents sending too many in a single message.
  • return __ : return nil or an array of creations for sending back to the client agent

syntax

function JGSL_server.history.GetCreationsForClientAgent(agent, MaxCount)
