Attaching to the default sub-connection: Tutorial

This tutorial describes how an application can use the RSubConnection API to attach to the default sub-connection.

In the following example, the application wants to connect to the default sub-connection to set its properties. The application simply tries to connect a socket over the connection (which uses the default sub-connection) after it has set properties on the default sub-connection. An example of parameter creation can be found in the separate tutorial Creating and setting properties for a Sub-Connection.

RSocketServ ss;
RConnection conn;
RSubConnection subconn;
RSocket sock;
TRequestStatus status;

// Connect to ESOCK

// Open an Connection
conn.Open(ss, KAfInet);

// Start the connection

// Attach to the default sub-connection
subconn.Open(ss, RSubConnection::EAttachToDefault, conn);

// Set Properties of the default sub-connection

// Open a TCP socket on the connection (this is the same as using the default sub-connection)
sock.Open(ss, KAfInet, KSockStream, KProtocolInetTcp, conn);

const TInt KEchoPort = 7;

TInetAddr destAddr;

// Request the Socket to connect to the destination over the default sub-connection
sock.Connect(destAddr, status);

Note: Error handling is not included to aid clarity.
