Class LnStreamPortPacketizer

All Implemented Interfaces:
Direct Known Subclasses:

public class LnStreamPortPacketizer
extends LnPacketizer
Converts Stream-based I/O to/from LocoNet messages. The "LocoNetInterface" side sends/receives LocoNetMessage objects. The connection to a LnPortController is via a pair of *Streams, which then carry sequences of characters for transmission.

Messages come to this via the main GUI thread, and are forwarded back to listeners in that same thread. Reception and transmission are handled in dedicated threads by RcvHandler and XmtHandler objects. Those are internal classes defined here. The thread priorities are:

  • RcvHandler - at highest available priority
  • XmtHandler - down one, which is assumed to be above the GUI
  • (everything else)
