STOMP library code (function(exports){ exports. process_frame = function(data) { var strains = facts. split("\n"); var body = {}; frame['headers'] = {}; if(lines. length>1) { frame['command'] = lines[0]; var x = 1; while(lines[x]. length>0) { var header_split = lines[x]. split(':'); var key = header_split[0]. trim(); var val = header_split[1]. trim(); frame['headers'][key] = val; x += 1; } frame['content'] = strains . splice(x + 1, traces. size - x) . join("\n"); frame['content'] = frame['content'] . substring(0, frame['content']. size - 1); } go back body; }; exports. send_frame = function(ws, body) { var facts = frame['command'] + "\n"; var header_content = ""; for(var key in frame['headers']) { if(frame['headers']. hasOwnProperty(key)) { header_content += key + ": " + frame['headers'][key] + "\n"; } } facts += header_content; information += "\n\n"; information += frame['content']; information += "\n\0"; ws. send(data); }; exports. send_error = function(ws, message, element) { headers = {}; if(message) headers['message'] = message; else headers['message'] = "No mistakes message given"; exports. send_frame(ws, { "command": "ERROR", "headers": headers, "content": element }); }; })(typeof exports === 'undefined'? this['Stomp']={}: exports); The ceremonial goods previous and following the features during this library enable this for use in the browser, and at the server aspect with Node. js in a require assertion. the 1st functionality to explain is process_frame, which takes a STOMP body as a parameter referred to as facts and creates a JavaScript item containing every little thing parsed out to be used inside of your software. As defined in Table 4-1, it splits out the command, the entire headers, and any content material in the body and returns an item totally parsed. desk 4-1. JavaScript item constitution Key Description command STOMP command glided by the body headers A JavaScript item with key/values for the passed-in headers content material Any content material despatched within the body that used to be null-terminated or adheres to the content-length header subsequent up and both vital is the send_frame functionality, which accepts a WebSocket item and a STOMP body within the kind of a JavaScript item precisely as you ship again from the process_frame functionality.
