Chapter 3: The ACE Socket Wrapper Facades

This chapter presents the patterns and wrapper facade classes that ACE provides to resolve the accidental complexity problems with the Socket API discussed in Chapter 2. We describe the ACE classes that use the Wrapper Facade pattern to encapsulate connection-oriented Socket API functionality in portable C++ classes. We also illustrate the use of these classes using brief, familiar Web server and client examples before showing the larger networked logging service in Chapter 4.
