dt_fd_forward is a jdwpTransport library. It implements the Java Debug Wire Protocol Transport Interface (jdwpTransport). It allows one to handle and proxy JDWP traffic by supplying the implementation for Attach. This transport requires an address. The address is a single integer value that is the file-descriptor of an open AF_UNIX socket.
When this transport begins listening or attaching it will send the null-terminated string “dt_fd_forward:START-LISTEN\0” over the given socket.
When this transport stops listening for connections it will send the null-terminated string “dt_fd_forward:END-LISTEN\0” over the socket.
When this transport has successfully received fds from the proxy it sends the message “dt_fd_forward:ATTACHED\0” over the socket.
When this transport has closed its copies of the fds it will send the proxy the message “dt_fd_forward:CLOSING\0” over the socket.
When this transport accepts or attaches to a connection it will read from the socket a 1 byte message and 3 file-descriptors. The file descriptors are, in order, an fd that will be read from to get incoming JDWP packets (read_fd_), an fd that outgoing JDWP packets will be written to (write_fd_), and an eventfd (write_lock_fd_). The eventfd should not have any flags set. Prior to writing any data to write_fd_ the transport will read from the write_lock_fd_ and after finishing the write it will write to it. This allows one to safely multiplex data on the write_fd_.
This transport implements no optional capabilities, though this may change in the future.
