Handler libraries architecture

Handlers are build on rows of modules:

  • Applications or launchers that get the request and choose the right type (Main, AuthBasic, ZimbraPreAuth,…) and launch it (may not inherits from other Handler::* modules)
  • Wrappers that call “type” library and platform “Main” (may all inherits from Platform::Main
  • Library types if needed (may inherit from Main)
  • Main: the main handler library
