happner-cluster

Extends happner with clustering capabilities.

Install

npm install happner-cluster happn-service-mongo-2 —save

Note data service installed separately.

Starting a cluster node

Happner-cluster and happner configs are almost identical excpet that cluster nodes should include a domain name and the happn subconfigs necessary for clustering - as minimum shown below.

For more on happn-cluster subconfig see happn-cluster docs

var HappnerCluster = require('happner-cluster');

var config = {

  // name: 'UNIQUE_NAME', // allow default uniqie name
  domain: 'DOMAIN_NAME', // same as other cluster nodes

  cluster: {
    //  requestTimeout: 20 * 1000, // exchange timeouts
    //  responseTimeout: 30 * 1000
  },

  happn: { // was "datalayer"
    services: {
      data: {
        // see data sub-config in happn-cluster docs
        config: {
          datastores: [
            // defaulted by happn-cluster
            //{
            //  name: 'mongo',
            //  provider: 'happn-service-mongo-2',
            //  isDefault: true,
            //  settings: {
            //    collection: 'happn-cluster',
            //    database: 'happn-cluster',
            //    url: 'mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017'
            //    url: 'mongodb://username:password@127.0.0.1:27017,127.0.0.1:27018,127.0.0.1:27019/happn?replicaSet=test-set&ssl=true&authSource=admin'
            //  }
            //},

            // defaulted by happner-cluster to prevent overwrites in shared db
            // where each cluster server requires unique data at certain paths
            //{
            //  name: 'nedb-own-schema',
            //  settings: {},
            //  patterns: [
            //    '/mesh/schema/*',
            //    '/_SYSTEM/_NETWORK/_SETTINGS/NAME',
            //    '/_SYSTEM/_SECURITY/_SETTINGS/KEYPAIR'
            //  ]
            //}
          ]
        }
      }
      membership: {
        // see membership sub-config in happn-cluster docs
      }
    }
  },

  modules: {
  },

  components: {
  }
}

HappnerCluster.create(config).then...

Using remote components in the cluster

A component that wishes to use non-local components whose instances reside elsewhere in the cluster should declare the dependencies in their package.json

Given a clusternode with component1...

config = {
  modules: {
    'component1': {
      // using most complex example of module which defines multiple component classes
      path: 'node-module-name',
      construct: {
        name: 'Component1'
      }
    }
  },
  components: {
    'component1': {...}
  }
}

…to enable component1 to use remote components from elsewhere in the cluster...

Component1.prototype.method = function ($happner, callback) {
  // $happner aka $happn
  // call remote component not defined locally
  $happner.exchange['remote-component'].method1(function (e, result) {
    callback(e, result);
  });

  // also
  // $happner.event['remote-component'].on() .off() .offPath()
}

…it should declare the dependency in its package.json file…

// package.json expressed as js
{
  name: 'node-module-name',
  version: '1.0.0',
  happner: {
    dependencies: {
      'component1': { // the component name which has the dependencies
                      // (allows 1 node_module to define more than 1 mesh component class)
        'remote-component': {
          version: '^1.0.0', // will only use matching versions from
                             // elsewhefre in the cluster
          methods: { // list of methods desired on the remote compnoent
            method1: {},
            method2: {}
          }
        },
        'remote-component2': {
          version: '~1.0.0'
          // no methods, only interested in events
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Note:

  • If a component is defined locally and remotely then local is preferred and remote never used.
  • If the component is defined on multiple remote nodes, a round-robin is performed on the method calls.

Brokered components using $broker

Using special syntax in the package.json happner config, it is possible to broker remote dependencies as if they were local components served up by the mesh

The following is an example package.json of a component that is brokering requests to the internal dependency remoteComponent, note the special $broker dependency name, which instructs the cluster to inject remoteComponent into the meshes exchange:

{
  "name": "broker-component",
  "version": "1.0.1",
  "happner": {
    "dependencies": {
      "$broker": {
        "remoteComponent": {
          "version": "^2.0.0",
          "methods": {
            "brokeredMethod1": {},
            "brokeredEventEmitMethod":{}
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Based on the above setup, clients are now able to connect to an edge cluster node (which has declared the broker component) and call the brokered dependencies as if they were loaded as components on the edge node:

var client = new Happner.MeshClient({
  hostname: 'localhost',
  port: 8080
});

client.login({
    username: 'username',
    password: 'password'
  })
  .then(function () {
    //NB NB: remoteComponent is now injected into the exchange as if the internal component
    // were a declared component on the edge cluster node:
    return client.exchange.remoteComponent.brokeredMethod1();
  })
  .then(function(result){
    //happy days...
  })

Note:

  • Duplicate injected dependencies (components with the same name brokered from different brokers) will fail to load, even if they are pointing to internal components with different versions.
