[][src]Trait http_body::Body

pub trait Body {
type Data: Buf;
type Error;
    fn poll_data(&mut self) -> Poll<Option<Self::Data>, Self::Error>;
fn poll_trailers(&mut self) -> Poll<Option<HeaderMap>, Self::Error>; fn size_hint(&self) -> SizeHint { ... }
fn is_end_stream(&self) -> bool { ... } }

Trait representing a streaming body of a Request or Response.

Data is streamed via the poll_data function, which asynchronously yields T: Buf values. The size_hint function provides insight into the total number of bytes that will be streamed.

The poll_trailers function returns an optional set of trailers used to finalize the request / response exchange. This is mostly used when using the HTTP/2.0 protocol.

Relation with BufStream.

The Body trait is a superset of the BufStream trait. However, BufStream is not considered a super trait of Body. Instead, a T: Body can be thought of as containing a BufStream as well as the HTTP trailers.

There exists is a blanket implementation of Body for T: BufStream. In other words, any type that implements BufStream also implements Body yielding no trailers.

Associated Types

type Data: Buf

Values yielded by the Body.

type Error

The error type this BufStream might generate.

Required methods

fn poll_data(&mut self) -> Poll<Option<Self::Data>, Self::Error>

Attempt to pull out the next data buffer of this stream.

fn poll_trailers(&mut self) -> Poll<Option<HeaderMap>, Self::Error>

Poll for an optional single HeaderMap of trailers.

This function should only be called once poll_data returns None.

Provided methods

fn size_hint(&self) -> SizeHint

Returns the bounds on the remaining length of the stream.

When the exact remaining length of the stream is known, the upper bound will be set and will equal the lower bound.

fn is_end_stream(&self) -> bool

Returns true when the end of stream has been reached.

An end of stream means that both poll_data and poll_trailers will return None.

A return value of false does not guarantee that a value will be returned from poll_stream or poll_trailers.
