Registers an HTTP URI handler.



is reserved for future use in virtual host support and must currently be NULL


identifies the HTTP method to be handled (eg: "GET")


base URI path (must end with a trailing ‘/’ character)


a thread pool identifier


passed through to handler via ec_httpsrv_service_ctx_get


the function to be invoked on matching requests

When a request is made and authenticated, each registered handler is compared against the request; the first matching request is taken as the handler, and its handler function is invoked.

A request matches if all of the following are true:

  • request method exactly matches the method parameter, or the method parameter was specified as NULL

  • the request URI is to a path that is logically a child of the path parameter (eg: request /foo/bar will match a handler registered for /foo/)

The registration is coupled with the system configuration, this means that the registration is implicitly un-done each time a new configuration is applied, so implementors of HTTP functions must re-register them from their ext_init function when EC_MODULE_INIT_INIT is triggered.

If job_class is -1 (ECTP_CLASS_SHORT_LIVED), then the handler function will be invoked on the scheduler thread. Otherwise, the system will arrange for it to be called in the specified thread pool.

Return Values

0 on success, or an errno value to indicate the nature of the failure.
