What is Binding and What are Comms Channels?

Binding is the process of two Comms Provider Modules linking to each other so that they can communicate. The Binding process is managed by the Root Server. After Binding is complete between two Comms Provider modules, each Comms Provider Module has a Comms Channel to the other Comms Provider Module.

A Comms Channel is a message-queue-based communication path from one Comms Provider Module to another Comms Provider Module. A Comms Channel is an extension of the RMsgQueueBase class and provides a message format designed for messages between Comms Provider Modules, and priority queues. Two Comms Channels are used together to provide bi-directional traffic between Comms Provider Modules.
