“2) Via the reception of messages to your application.”
That’s exactly what I did. I created 4 application specific message types. In the PastryMessageHandler.java, I defined how a node should react when it receives a certain message type.
“1) Via the actions-File, to tell certain nodes to start certain actions at a certain time.”
Yes, I will need need an actions-file in order to force the simulated SCRIBE network to do as I wish (for evaluation purposes).
My problems are:
a) I don’t know what orders are valid inside an actions-file (i.e. the syntax and semantics). Is there a documentation about this?
b) I don’t know “where” the actions-file connects to the simulator/my application. I mean, somehow, the orders of the actions-file have to be interpreted by the simulator or my application. Where can I find the part of the simulator performing this task? or Where do I have to implement it in my application?
Thank you for your help.
