registerExtension function

void registerExtension(
  1. String method,
  2. ServiceExtensionHandler handler

Register a ServiceExtensionHandler that will be invoked in this isolate for method. NOTE: Service protocol extensions must be registered in each isolate.

NOTE: method must begin with 'ext.' and you should use the following structure to avoid conflicts with other packages: 'ext.package.command'. That is, immediately following the 'ext.' prefix, should be the registering package name followed by another period ('.') and then the command name. For example: ''.

Because service extensions are isolate specific, clients using extensions must always include an 'isolateId' parameter with each RPC.


void registerExtension(String method, ServiceExtensionHandler handler) {
  // TODO: When NNBD is complete, delete the following line.
  checkNotNullable(method, 'method');
  if (!method.startsWith('ext.')) {
    throw new ArgumentError.value(method, 'method', 'Must begin with ext.');
  if (_lookupExtension(method) != null) {
    throw new ArgumentError('Extension already registered: $method');
  // TODO: When NNBD is complete, delete the following line.
  checkNotNullable(handler, 'handler');
  final zoneHandler = Zone.current.bindBinaryCallback(handler);
  _registerExtension(method, zoneHandler);
