Class

NSXPCListenerEndpoint

An object that names a specific XPC listener.

Declaration

class NSXPCListenerEndpoint : NSObject

Overview

An instance of NSXPCListenerEndpoint may be retrieved from an NSXPCListener instance and sent over existing NSXPCConnections. A process may then use the endpoint to create a new NSXPCConnection to the original NSXPCListener.

This pattern is useful if you have a service which multiplexes work to other services. The service can act as an intermediate helper. The requesting application does not need to know specifically which service it is connecting to, just that it implements a known NSXPCInterface.
