Boost.Asio C++ Network Programming Cookbook by Dmytro Radchuk

By Dmytro Radchuk

Beginning with recipes demonstrating the execution of easy Boost.Asio operations, the e-book is going directly to offer ready-to-use implementations of purchaser and server functions from basic synchronous ones to strong multithreaded scalable suggestions. ultimately, you're provided with complex subject matters corresponding to imposing a talk software, imposing an HTTP consumer, and including SSL help. the entire samples offered within the booklet are able to be utilized in genuine tasks simply out of the box.

As good as very good sensible examples, the publication additionally contains prolonged supportive theoretical fabric on allotted software layout and construction.

What you'll learn:
- strengthen your operating wisdom of 1 of the main respected C++ networking libraries―Boost.Asio
- get yourself up to speed with the fundamentals of TCP and UDP protocols
- Create scalable and highly-efficient consumer and server applications
- comprehend the idea at the back of improvement of allotted applications
- elevate the safety of your dispensed purposes through including SSL support
- enforce a HTTP purchaser easily
- Use iostreams, scatter-gather buffers, and timers

Vehicular Networks: From Theory to Practice (Chapman & Hall/CRC Computer & Information Science Series)

In spite in their value and power societal influence, there's presently no accomplished resource of knowledge approximately vehicular advert hoc networks (VANETs). Cohesively integrating the state-of-the-art during this rising box, Vehicular Networks: From conception to perform elucidates many matters occupied with vehicular networking, together with site visitors engineering, human components experiences, and novel desktop technology research.

Divided into six vast sections, the e-book starts off with an outline of site visitors engineering matters, corresponding to site visitors tracking and site visitors movement modeling. It then introduces governmental and business efforts within the usa and Europe to set criteria and practice box exams at the feasibility of vehicular networks. After highlighting leading edge functions enabled by means of vehicular networks, the ebook discusses numerous networking-related concerns, together with routing and localization. the next part makes a speciality of simulation, that's at the moment the first process for comparing vehicular networking structures. the ultimate half explores the level and influence of motive force distraction with in-vehicle displays.

Encompassing either introductory and complicated ideas, this consultant covers some of the parts that effect the layout of functions for vehicular networks. It information key study demanding situations, deals advice on constructing destiny criteria, and provides beneficial details on latest experimental studies.

Example text

In step 2, we create an object of the asio::ip::tcp::endpoint class designating the target server application to which we are going to connect. Then, in step 3 an active socket is instantiated and opened. In step 4, we call the socket's connect() method, passing an endpoint object designating the target server to it as an argument. This function connects the socket to the server. The connection is performed synchronously, which means that the method blocks the caller thread until either the connection operation is established or an error occurs.

The results of asynchronous operations are passed to the callback as arguments. 40 Chapter 2 Additional operations In addition to this, we are going to consider such operations as canceling asynchronous operations, shutting down, and closing a socket. The ability to cancel a previously initiated asynchronous operation is very important. It allows the application to state that the previously initiated operation is not relevant anymore, which may save the application's resources (both CPU and memory), that otherwise (in case, the operation would continue its execution even after it was known that nobody is interested in it anymore) would be unavoidably wasted.

3. Create and open an active socket. 4. Call the socket's connect() method specifying the endpoint object created in step 2 as an argument. 5. If the method succeeds, the socket is considered connected and can be used to send and receive data to and from the server. hpp> #include using namespace boost; int main() { // Step 1. Assume that the client application has already // obtained the IP address and protocol port number of the // target server. 1"; unsigned short port_num = 3333; try { // Step 2.
