- Direct Known Subclasses:
DiscoveryNode describes a nodes addresses (private and if
necessary a public one) as well as attributes assigned to this node.
Private address defines the typical internal communication port, all
cluster communication and also client communication inside the same
network happens on this address. However in cloud environments clients
might run in other sub-networks and therefore cannot access the private
address. In those situations
vendors can retrieve and assign an additional external (or public) IP
address of the node for clients to connect against.
Public addresses, if not necessary, can either be returned as null or may return the same address instance as the private one and will be handled internally the same way.
The properties will be used to store any kind of tags or other metadata
available for the node inside of the cloud environment. If a
NodeFilter is configured, these
properties might be used for further refinement of the discovered nodes
based on whatever the filter decides.
This class is implemented as an abstract class to offer easy extensibility in later versions of the SPI. Since Java only offers forward evolution of interfaces starting with Java 8, this is the best option.
Method SummaryModifier and TypeMethodDescription
abstract AddressReturns the private address of the discovered node.Returns a set of unmodifiable properties that are assigned to the discovered node.
