Create a client and start the action, in whose scope the client lives;
Service discovery: The function checks whether the client's service is provided by the broker.
- Nothing: The broker timed out
- Just False: The service is not available
- Just True: The service is available
Request a service:
Client- The client, through which the service is requested
Timeout- Timeout in microseconds, -1 to wait eternally. With timeout = 0, the function returns immediately with
Nothing. When the timeout expires, request is abandoned. In this case, the result of the request is Nothing.
Source- The source of the request stream; the format of the request will probably comply with some communication protocol, as, for instance, in the majordomo pattern.
SinkR- The sink receiving the reply. The result of the sink is returned as the request's overall result. Note that the sink may perform different actions on the segments of the resulting stream, e.g. storing data in a database, and return the number of records received.
