public class ExecNamingService
extends NamingService

An interface to an external naming service program, with in-memory caching. This can be used as a simple and flexible way to experiment with alternative naming systems. The external command takes a hostname argument and must return (only) the 516-byte Base64 destination, or hostname=dest, on stdout. A trailing \n or \r\n is acceptable. The command must exit 0 on success. Nonzero on failure is optional. The external command can do local and/or remote (via i2p or not) lookups. No timeouts are implemented here - the author of the external program must ensure that the program returns in a reasonable amount of time - (15 sec max suggested) Can be used from MetaNamingService, (e.g. after HostsTxtNamingService), or as the sole naming service.
