Project description

ROC - Remote Object Call

Build Status PyPi version

ROC is RPC enhancment allowing to manipulate remote objects like they are local

Why ROC?

ROC development was started to support acceptance testing of distributed systems with FitNesse, waferslim and vagrant System infrastucture may be described as follows:

  • Host machine running FitNesse server and SLIM server;

  • Set of guests, that are provisioned by vagrant with ROC servers;

When hosts’ fixture is invoked by SLIM server, it can access guests’ roc servers.


To start serving your modules on remote machine with ROC:

python -m "roc" -m <your-module-path> -p <port>

To connect to your instance from host:

from roc.client import server_proxy, remote_module
proxy = server_proxy(host='', port=1234)
RModule = remote_module(proxy)

To instantiate object on remote machine:

remote_instance = RModule.RemoteClass(1, 2, 3)

From now every method called on remote_instance will be executed on remote.

When you finished, call proxy.shutdown() to, well, shut down remote ROC server.
