Class

MessagePort

A port that can be used as an endpoint for distributed object connections (or raw messaging).

Overview

MessagePort is a subclass of Port that allows for local (on the same machine) communication only. A companion class, SocketPort, allows for both local and remote communication, but may be more expensive than MessagePort for the local case.

MessagePort defines no additional methods over those already defined by Port.
