Overview

The channel class represents a logical data pipe that exists between the client and the server. The purpose and behavior of the channel depends on which type it is. The three basic types of channels are streams, datagrams, and pools. Streams are basically equivalent to a TCP connection. Bidirectional, connection-oriented streams. Datagrams are basically equivalent to a UDP session. Bidirectional, connectionless. Pools are basically equivalent to a uni-directional connection, like a file handle. Pools denote channels that only have requests flowing in one direction.
