UPC stands for Unity Procedure Call. It is a simple communication protocol for invoking
methods on the server. A UPC call looks like the following:
targetRoomID is the ID of the Room which should handle this message.
method is the method you would like to invoke on the Room.
You may also specify any number of arguments (ARG) within the ARGS tag that you would like
passed to the method. All arguments are sent as String and any conversion to other types
must be done within the Room.
UPCRoom is a Room which knows how to process UPC. It's fully qualified class name is
org.moock.unity.core.upc.UPCRoom. If you want to code a server side Room based on UPC you can
make use of the functionality already in UPCRoom by extending it rather than org.moock.unity.core.Room
as usual. If the UPCRoom cannot process a message itself it passes that message to it's method
handleMessage which you can override to add your own handlers.
UPCMessage is an Object representation of a UPC message. It is an easier form to work
with than a raw String. In general, you parse an incoming String to a UPCMessage for processing (see UPCParser). Then
generate an outgoing UPCMessage and convert it to a String when you want to broadcast it (see UPCBuilder).
UPCParser is used to parse a String of UPC and convert it to a UPCMessage Object. It has 1 static method
UPCMessage upcMessage = UPCParser.parse(myUPCString);
UPCBuilder is used to convert a UPCMessage and convert it to a String Object typically to send to Clients. It has 1 static method
