Types

Connection

A connection represents the communication channel from a client going to a server. This can be used for the client and the server to send and receive messages.

Connection Type

The kind of protocol used for a server of connection.

Constants
Name Description
Tcp

Uses the TCP protocol. SplashKit can send messages of any size, and repackage it from you at the other end. Messages are reliably transferred.

Udp

Uses the UDP protocol. SplashKit will send messages of up to 1024 bytes (by default). You need to handle packaging anything larger than this.

Unknown

The protocol is unknown, usually due to the connection or server being invalid or closed.

HTTP Method

The method token is used to indicate the kind of action to be performed on the server. See W3 specifications.

Constants
Name Description
HTTP GET Method

A get method

HTTP POST Method

A post method

HTTP PUT Method

A put method

HTTP DELETE Method

A delete method

HTTP Options Method

An options method

HTTP Trace Method

A trace method

Unknown HTTP Method

A method not recognised by SplashKit

HTTP Request

The request contains the details of the resource the user is requesting.

HTTP Response

A HTTP response is a resource that comes back from a HTTP request. This may be the text related to a web page, or the data related to a resource. Once you have used the response, you need to make sure to call Free Response.

Message

A message contains data that has been transferred between a client connection and a server (or visa versa).

Server Socket

A server represents a network resource that clients can connect to. The server will receive messages from all of the client connections, and can be used to access the clients connected to the server.

Web Server

The web server is able to listen for incomming requests, and you can then provide the response.
