Comet - subscribing to a glob channel

Description (last modified by dylan)

Subscribing to the * channels doesn't seem to work. Let's say we have the channels /foo and /bar. When the user subscribes to /*, the user does a client-side dojo.subscribe to /*, but the actual message will be published to either /foo or /bar on the client side. In other words, the server delivers the messages to the client, but the client is listening on a different Dojo channel.

I wasn't sure what to set the ticket properties to, so I'm hoping somebody else will edit them.

I think this is simply because dojo.subscribe does not support wild cards.

So I think that when we receive a message on channel /foo/bar/boo then we should publish it to dojo topics:

/cometd/ /cometd/foo/ /cometd/foo/bar/ /cometd/foo/bar/* /cometd/foo/bar/boo

Is that reasonable?

Seems reasonable to me. Here's the modified code for dojox.cometd._deliver that I'm using to do this:

// dispatch the message to any locally subscribed listeners
try {
	var tname = "/cometd";
	dojo.publish(tname, [ message ]);
	// Begin changes
	var tnameParts ="/");
	var tnameGlob = "/cometd";
	for (var i = 1; i < tnameParts.length - 1; i++) {
		dojo.publish(tnameGlob + "/**", [ message ]);
		tnameGlob += "/" + tnameParts[i];
	dojo.publish(tnameGlob + "/**", [ message ]);
	dojo.publish(tnameGlob + "/*", [ message ]);
	// End changes

I've committed with the slight change of publishing to the real topic after the glob topics, so that it is like we have descended the tree.

If you can test this, I will see if it can make it into 1.1

Marked #4961 as a duplicate of this ticket. Also, #6385 is a request to add this to dojo.publish() and dojo.subscribe().
