Detailed Description

A cooperatively scheduled, event-based actor implementation.

This is the recommended base class for user-defined actors.

Member Function Documentation

virtual proxy_registry* caf::scheduled_actor::proxy_registry_ptr ( )
virtual

Returns a factory for proxies created and managed by this actor or nullptr.

void caf::scheduled_actor::quit ( error  x = error{})

Finishes execution of this actor after any currently running message handler is done.

This member function clears the behavior stack of the running actor and invokes on_exit(). The actors does not finish execution if the implementation of on_exit() sets a new behavior. When setting a new behavior in on_exit(), one has to make sure to not produce an infinite recursion.

If on_exit() did not set a new behavior, the actor sends an exit message to all of its linked actors, sets its state to exited and finishes execution.

In case this actor uses the blocking API, this member function unwinds the stack by throwing an actor_exited exception.

Warning
This member function throws immediately in thread-based actors that do not use the behavior stack, i.e., actors that use blocking API calls such as receive().
resume_result caf::scheduled_actor::resume ( execution_unit ,
size_t  max_throughput 
)
overridevirtual

Resume any pending computation until it is either finished or needs to be re-scheduled later.

Implements caf::resumable.

Reimplemented in caf::io::abstract_broker.

void caf::scheduled_actor::set_exception_handler ( exception_handler  fun)

Sets a custom exception handler for this actor.

If multiple handlers are defined, only the functor that was added last is being executed.

template<class F >
std::enable_if< std::is_convertible< F, std::function<error (std::exception_ptr&)> >::value >::type caf::scheduled_actor::set_exception_handler ( f)

Sets a custom exception handler for this actor.

If multiple handlers are defined, only the functor that was added last is being executed.

subtype_t caf::scheduled_actor::subtype ( ) const
overridevirtual

Returns a subtype hint for this object.

This allows an execution unit to limit processing to a specific set of resumables and delegate other subtypes to dedicated workers.

Reimplemented from caf::resumable.

Reimplemented in caf::io::abstract_broker.
