python multiprocessing proxy


D

DrFalk3N

I have a 2 processes:

the first process is manager.py and starts in backgroung:

from multiprocessing.managers import SyncManager, BaseProxy
from CompositeDict import *

class CompositeDictProxy(BaseProxy):

_exposed_ = ('addChild', 'setName')
def addChild(self, child):
return self._callmethod('addChild', [child])

def setName(self, name):
return self._callmethod('setName', [name])

class Manager(SyncManager):
def __init__(self):
super(Manager, self).__init__(address=('127.0.0.1',
50000), authkey='abracadabra')

def start_Manager():
Manager().get_server().serve_forever()

if __name__=="__main__":
Manager.register('get_plant', CompositeDict,
proxytype=CompositeDictProxy)
start_Manager()

----------

and the second is consumer.py supposed to use registered objects
defined into the manager:

from manager import *
import time
import random

class Consumer():

def __init__(self):
Manager.register('get_plant')

m = Manager()
m.connect()
plant = m.get_plant()
#plant.setName('alfa')
plant.addChild('beta')


if __name__=="__main__":
Consumer()

----------

Running the manager in background, and than the consumer I get the
error message:
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded,
when using addChild into the consumer, while I can correctly use
setName.


The detailed error message is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "consumer.py", line 21, in <module>
Consumer()
File "consumer.py", line 17, in __init__
plant.addChild('beta')
File "<string>", line 2, in addChild

File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 99, in __getattr__
child = self.findChild(name)
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 185, in findChild
for child in self.getAllChildren():
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 167, in getAllChildren
l.extend(child.getAllChildren())
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 165, in getAllChildren
for child in self._children:
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 99, in __getattr__
child = self.findChild(name)
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 185, in findChild
for child in self.getAllChildren():
File "/--/--/prove/CompositeDict.py", line 165, in

for child in self._children:
...
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 99, in __getattr__
child = self.findChild(name)
File "/home/--/--/CompositeDict.py", line 185, in findChild
for child in self.getAllChildren():
RuntimeError: maximum recursion depth exceeded

Methods addChild and setName belongs to CompositeDict, I suppose to be
proxied.

What's wrong?

----------

CompositeDict overwrites native __getattr__ method and is involved in
the error message. I suppose, in some way, it's not used the right one
__getattr__ method. If so how could I solve this problem??

Following used CompositeDict is taken from http://code.activestate.com/recipes/498249/
