Hi Glyph and David,
Thanks for your answers and thanks for taking time to answer. It was indeed
my wrong understanding. I was trying to understand what
HTTPClientChannelRequest does in terms of producer and consumer (Its a lot
deep considering me being relatively new at this). Looking further at the
code I do understand that we have a producer which generates the necessary
data which can be written out using the transport and we have a consumer
which works of the data from the dataReceived (I hope my understanding is
correct and I don't know how it is buffered and I don't know how the flow
tells the consumer that there is data for use).
I understand there is
however I was hoping if there is an example of a simple consumer which
could be written using the data from dataReceived (that is assuming
whatever I understood above is correct). I didn't find enough information
on how to create a consumer.
